Getting married on the beach at sunset is a dream for many brides. If it is yours as well, it is important to remember that organizing a beach wedding can be easy or stressful depending on what you’d like to include. If you’re wondering know how to organize a wedding on the beach, these tips will help.

Plan your wedding at a beach resort

Reserving a block of rooms at a resort will help you ensure you have plenty of rooms for your guests. Book in advance to get the best possible rate.

Consult with the wedding department

The resort will put you in touch with the wedding specialist or event planner. Ask about the best dates for the nicest weather, best rates and above all, wedding packages. Some resorts offer free wedding packages with a certain number of rooms reserved.

Dress for the occasion

The dress you would wear to an indoor ceremony usually won’t be the right one for the beach. Be sure to buy a dress that makes you feel comfortable, cool and secure. You can bring a second option for wearing after the ceremony without leaving your wedding glamour behind.

Beachy gifts

Many couples look for a beachy-type souvenir or gift for their guests. Considering that they’ll be on the sand, some opt for special slippers or sandals to keep everyone comfortable. Choose anything that comes to mind- it’s your wedding!

Take your honeymoon

You’re already at the beach so take advantage and enjoy your honeymoon right there too. Ask about options for honeymooners and have an experience filled with love and romance. A sunset boat tour is an excellent option for really making your time in paradise special.

I hope these tips help you plan your wedding on the beach! Discuss all options with the resort’s wedding planner; they’ll be able to explain all of the options to make your beach wedding a total success!
