Plan Ahead

When you plan a beach wedding, the venue is very important. You want a beach that blends accessibility with some degree of privacy. After all, you do not want a rogue volleyball encroaching on your wedding photos. Scout your locations carefully, giving yourself plenty of time to find your venue, reserve it, and ensure that you have all the license and permit requirements in order.sashes-beach-wedding-chairsBe ready to provide detailed lists of equipment and items, including food and beverages that will be brought to the site, as many venues need that information. Also, have an alternate venue planned, just in case things do not work out with the beach. Even the best-laid plans can go astray, but you and your wedding party can always hit the beach later for perfect pictures.airlie-wedding666x300

Rain on Your Wedding Day?

They also tend to offer early blooming seasons.
