Beach Wedding

Beautiful beach wedding

Planning my wedding has been quite the exciting trip thus far. There are the obvious ups and downs that come with it, but I think I have nearly everything sorted out for what I want to do. I’ve decided to ditch the conventional church ceremony this year and go for a small beach wedding (and maybe combine it with a little bit of a vacation). We’re going to be jetting off to Maui for our wedding and I’m sure it’s going to be amazing.

The tricky thing about planning a beach wedding is deciding on a wedding venue. The honeymoon aspect of this is pretty simple: we’re already in Hawaii, we’re going to enjoy it, but finding the right spot to really tie the knot is a bit more work. It’s not that it’s overly difficult to find places that are willing to do it, but I want to make sure that I’m choosing the perfect destination.

My dad’s helping out a lot with the ceremony so we’re going a bit more upscale and doing everything through the Four Seasons. The beach weddings that they offer are to die for. The wedding venue, the food, the entertainment, even the honeymoon package that they showed us left near no room for compare for anyone else.

The thing about beach weddings is that you really need to consider what to do if everything doesn’t go your way. If the weather isn’t agreeing with you, you need to make sure you have a backup plan. In my case, you really need to make sure that you’re prepared for some really hot temperatures and make sure that you inform all your guests of that as well. That last thing you want is an uncle dripping with sweat about to pass out.

When you’re looking for wedding ideas, make sure you consider what kinds of food you want to serve. You don’t want to serve up a bunch of hot foods when it’s 1000 degrees. You want to keep the food light and cool and make sure that your food choices reflect the theme of the venue that you’re going for. Luxury weddings, especially beach weddings, are a unique beat to tackle so make sure you approach with caution.

The last piece of advice I have for anyone, whether you’re planning a beach wedding or not, is to make sure that you’re planning the wedding you want. There are concessions you’re going to have to make here and there on the food or the venue or even some simple ideas you might have come up with that you have to throw away. Everyone has limitations and sadly, it’s very rare that we can have everything we want, but stay vigilant and I can guarantee you’re going to have your dream wedding in no time.
