The big day is traditionally held in a hall or social area of some sort; however an increasingly popular decision is to have beach weddings. More people are choosing to have a more laidback and fun event rather than a traditional and formal day. In the warmer months, beach weddings can be a casual and laid back event that is more to do with fun and celebration rather than the traditional style events. Many brides are opting to kick off their shoes and take their vows on the sand, as the population moves away from traditional and religiously motivated events and moves more onto focusing on the event itself as being a celebration and a big party. Beach weddings are often more intimate and laid back for all guests involved.
If you are still on the fence about whether or not you should get involved in beach weddings, here are some reasons why they are becoming so popular and why they are a good fit for your big day.
Beach weddings are often in beautiful destinations
If you don’t live in on the oceanside or waterfront, then it’s likely you will have to travel to a beautiful destination in order to hold your big day. This means that you can also have a holiday at the same time, surrounded by sand and palm trees. Some couples even opt to go where their honeymoon is set, meaning that right after their event, they can go straight into their honeymoon without having to go anywhere else. This makes beach weddings not only set in a beautiful destination but also accessible for the couple as they are already at their honeymoon destination and will be able to go straight into it after the event.
Beach weddings often have all-inclusive packages
When you book beach weddings through a resort, often they will have all-inclusive packages. These will usually include flowers, in-house food, makeup, music and other essentials for the event. The usual headaches associated with these types of events is organising everything and getting it all to come together perfectly. This can be very time consuming and takes a lot of organisation to ensure you do not go over budget and ensure everything fits together. When you go through a resort with an all-inclusive package, you see the price upfront to know whether it fits your budget or not. It also organises everything for you so you do not need to worry about the intricacies of the event, and you can just kick back and enjoy the sand and palm trees.
Beach weddings are great for closer and more intimate settings
Beach weddings are great for closer and more intimate settings, as people will often not have time to take holidays and days off work plus travel, which means the people that do come will be the closest ones to you.
This is perfect for couples who will want a smaller event however they do not want to leave out certain people when inviting guests, and this gives them the excuse to have a smaller event. The guests that do come will show how much they care for the couple as they went out of their way to come to the event despite the travel, costs and time off.
In summary, beach weddings are great as they can be set in beautiful destinations which allow the couple to enter their honeymoon immediately after, they can often be cheaper than a traditional event and less of an organisational headache and they are great for closer and more intimate settings.
