The Ultimate Beach Wedding Checklist - Say I do in bliss

A wedding is quite a feat to pull off, and if you are stuck at where you must begin planning on a beach wedding, you've come to the right place!


Dress for the location

Naturally, at a beach wedding, the bride must dress accordingly. An elaborate ball gown will only cause problems at the beach, making it difficult for you to move around and pose for photographs. Additionally, lace-trimmed dresses can be inconvenient as they easily become soiled with dirt or debris. A better option would be to wear a dress fashioned from light fabric that will flow naturally in the wind. You can also get the help of Saii Lagoon Maldives or any other resort you are hosting the function at since they would be experts at such Maldives events.


Wear sand friendly footwear

Needless to say, high heels have no place at a beach wedding. Instead, select flat sandals, wedges or espadrilles that will not sink into the sand. As the sand can become hot in tropical climates, your choice of footwear should preferably allow your feet to cool down by allowing air to pass through.


What is the hairstyle going to be?

A stylish updo would be an excellent choice of hairstyle for a beach wedding as it would remain in place without being disturbed by the sea breezes. A classic updo is sure to look polished and sophisticated for the duration of the wedding ceremonies. On the other hand, if you feel that is essential to wear your locks down, it would be a good idea to get the professional services of a hairstylist for the day.


You can forego the veil

A long cumbersome veil will probably be an impediment at a beach wedding. Especially if it is gusty, an elaborate veil would be very inconvenient for the bride as well as the photographer. A good alternative would be to choose to highlight your hairstyle with appropriate flowers which will enhance your coastal wedding.


The groom can relax

Although many women may imagine their partner in a tuxedo for their wedding, thick black wool fabric is totally unsuitable for a tropical beach setting. Many modern grooms attire themselves in light cotton trousers or even perhaps tailored shorts for the big day.


Minimal decor is the way to go

If your beach location is a naturally breathtaking setting, you do not have to worry about using elaborate decorations and expensive flowers. Instead, choose to complement the natural allure of the beach by selecting a beach theme such as starfish and shells. Another good idea would be to follow a restrained colour scheme with shades representing the sand, stones and water of the beach.


Sunset or later?

When it comes to ensuring memorable photographs of your beach ceremony, the lighting is exceedingly important. An excellent choice would be to conclude the nuptial ceremony about an hour prior to sunset. By doing so you will be able to obtain quality natural light shots in addition to glamorous sundown portraits.


Food and Drinks

A tropical beach wedding is sure to be hot and humid, so you should take care that you provide adequate refreshments for your guests. You should prepare a table providing lemonade, ice water or a special cocktail so that the guests can enjoy themselves during the event.
