Tips For The Perfect Beach Wedding


Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world can be found in Australia, and this is one of the main reasons why millions of people choose to tie the knot on Australia’s pristine white sands each year. This non-traditional route offers many benefits for newlyweds, from the spectacular photo opportunities to the outdoor activities on offer. A simplistic and somewhat casual alternative to a traditional church wedding, a beach wedding is relatively cost effective and most importantly, romantic. There are numerous perks associated with a destination wedding and in order to experience them all, you should plan accordingly.

Hiring a Function Coordinator

A function coordinator is also known as an event planner. He or she will do anything possible to reduce stress on your behalf, from negotiating contracts for suitable beach wedding locations, to ensuring the celebration is executed as effortlessly as possible. Some other responsibilities of a wedding function coordinator include consulting with you, the client, contacting floral companies, meeting with musicians, gathering quotes from vendors, and comparing the best rates. The function coordinator will take on the role of wedding supervisor when the big day arrives and during this time, all aspects of the affair will be overseen.

Choosing the Attire

Once you have hired a function coordinator to assist with wedding plans, it’s time to choose the attire wisely. Remember that Mother Nature can be quite unpredictable at times, therefore it’s essential that everyone dresses appropriately. The bride should skip the big dress and instead, choose a lightweight gown with a small trail. Avoid wearing a dress with a lace trim, as this material might collect debris from the beach. Choose flat sandals over heels and think twice about wearing a veil, as this will be a nightmare in the event of gusty winds. Encourage the guys to dress in an informal manner and set up a shoe station for guests.

Organising the Reception

Now comes the most important part – organising the reception. If you don’t want to spend too much money on a beach wedding, host it on a weekday, as there will be higher demand for beach weddings on Saturdays and during the holidays. Decide who the photographer will be, who will bring the entertainment and whether or not a videographer will be hired. The cars, stationery designs and caterers should also be considered at this stage.
