Achieving the Dream of a Beach Wedding

By February 22, 2014 Wedding Inspiration No Comments

Many couples dream of having a beach wedding. Getting married in paradise with soft sand beneath your feet, the soothing sound of waves hitting the beach, and the perfect weather making an outdoor ceremony possible is amazing. Many couples think they can’t afford to go to a beach to get married, or most of their friends and family won’t be able to make it. They also feel like the elegant reception or fun DJ they have wanted won’t work with a beach wedding. Brides who want a princess dress feel limited by the beach, as if they need to wear a flowing sheath wedding dress instead.

The secret to a beach wedding is it can be whatever you want it to be! Wear that princess dress. Have your elegant reception among candlelight. Get that fun DJ on the beach and don’t bother with a dance floor. Let people swing their moves in the sand.

When it comes to being able to afford it, you don’t have to go to Hawaii to get that beach wedding. It may be more beautiful there than most other places in the world, but you will also spend three times as much on your wedding and many of your friends and family won’t make it.

Instead, look at beaches closer to home. America has many gorgeous beaches available with great wedding packages. When you go at the right time of year, you can hit the beach when it is not full of tourists and also not being pounded with rain or seaweed. You can also look up all inclusive resort packages that include both the wedding and honeymoon in a discounted group price.

The beach also gives you more possibilities for your wedding that you haven’t thought of yet. A beach wedding is within your reach and it can be anything you want it to be.
