Beach Weddings – Going Beyond Tradition

The desire to go beyond traditional wedding venues, such as homes, halls or hotels has made beach weddings the venue of choice for a growing number of couples around the world. And one big advantage of having a beach wedding is that it is one of the most inexpensive, yet romantic venues that a couple could have. The other advantage of beach weddings is that a couple can save a lot of money in terms of clothes, jewellery, etc. as casual or beachwear for the bridal couple is acceptable attire for such a venue, although this may not be the rule.

The reason why beach weddings have grown in popularity, over the past few decades, is because of the beautiful, romantic and panoramic vistas that such a venue offers. After all, who could resist a wedding back-drop that is provided free by nature – golden sand, swaying green palms, blue waters, an endless sky and exquisite sunsets? Beach weddings can be held at anytime of day or night and still have incomparable, appeal. Sunrise, midday or at sunset are all great times for beach weddings and equally beautiful is the sound of the waves with a star-studded, sky at night. These are factors that make a beach such a versatile venue.

As beach weddings are still growing in popularity, beachside Resorts and Hotels now offer attractive wedding packages to suit various budgets and requirements. Many resorts and hotels have professional, wedding planning groups who take care of all arrangements and pay particular attention to detail when planning beach weddings. Today, most beach wedding packages include beach décor, open-air, buffet catering, live entertainment and attractive honeymoon facilities. In this manner, couples can relax and have time to attend to other things without stress whatsoever.

One of the biggest rewards, and the sense of achievement that couples experience, is the appreciation they receive from guests. This is but natural, as just about anybody would, for a change, just love to leave the rigors of formal etiquette, attire and tradition, while shedding their inhibitions and letting their hair down to revel in an ambiance without compare.

The beach is also flexible enough as a venue to organize theme-orientated, beach weddings. As such, weddings with Hawaiian, Caribbean, Far Eastern and other exotic themes are becoming extremely popular. Beach weddings needn’t be extravagant or big in terms of the number of invitees, space and décor that a traditional venue would demand. The savings that accrue from beach weddings can be utilized for travel expenses or the cost of a popular, exotic location. When planning your beach wedding, it would be a good idea to study different beach destination brochures, as well as the numerous packages on offer for beach weddings. You can also go online to get enough information to make your final choice and allocate the relevant budget. If you have the advantage of a scenic beach location, not too far from where you and your partner decide, it will be an added advantage not only to you but also to close relatives and friends who would otherwise need to travel to a destination much further. Either way, if you’ve decided to have a beach wedding, you will be joining millions of couples who have enjoyed the romance, thrills and scenic beauty of a beach wedding.
