Beach Wedding Questions

If we do not answer any of your beach wedding questions please contact Sunny Beach Weddings today.

Q? I want to get married on the beach but I am not sure exactly where.  Can you help me pick a beach to plan my wedding?

A. While any beach location is a good spot to plan your wedding, there are a few things you should take into consideration.  The number one thing is choosing a location close to where you are staying and getting ready.  Most couples will choose the beach right outside of the hotel or condominium they are staying in.  If you are not staying right by the beach we can help you choose a location that is convenient for you.  You must also remember that Rehoboth Beach, Assateague Island and other beaches will charge you a permit fee. Please view our Beach Locations page for rules and permit schedule of the different beaches.  Please contact sunny beach weddings for beach wedding questions about location.

 Q? What time of day should I plan to have my beach wedding?

A. Another great beach wedding question.  Definitely, the best time to have your Beach Wedding is a few hours before sunset.  Depending on the time of year this will be between 5 and 7 pm.  In addition, this time of day offers cooler temperatures, emptier beaches and milder skies which are more ideal for your wedding photographs.  We do not plan beach weddings during the middle of the day during the summer.  You might be asking why.  Because we want you to have the best possible beach wedding.  We do also offer sunrise Weddings.  Most importantly beach weddings in the summer must be before 9 am or after 5 pm.

Q? What happens if it rains or if there is a thunderstorm?

A. Definitely the most common of all beach wedding questions. Rain is always a possibility for a beach wedding, however, over 90 percent of our weddings are not affected in any way by rain.  Unfortunately, thunderstorms will prevent us from having the beach wedding by law and safety.   It is best that we do not reschedule your beach wedding based on a forecast for rain.  Often the forecast especially days ahead of time will be wrong.  The logistics of family, guests, minister, photographer, etc. becomes very complicated to reschedule.  We will do everything we can to have your Wedding as originally scheduled.  On rare occasions, we have had to move the Wedding inside.  Having the Wedding when scheduled is almost always best.

Q? Do I need to get my own marriage license?

A. Please apply for a marriage license in the county you plan on getting married.  The license must be obtained by the marrying couple.  Your minister will file the license with the county after the wedding.

Q? How long will it take for my photographs to be ready and available?

A. Your wedding photographs will usually be ready within two weeks of your wedding date.  So your online gallery will be up then and we will send you a link to this.  Finally, If you have ordered a disc of your images allow 3 weeks for this to be delivered to you.

Q? I need a photographer for my reception as well.  Can Sunny Beach Weddings also help with that?

A. Of course, we would love to photograph your reception.  However, additional hours of wedding photography can and must be ordered ahead of time.

Q?  How long will it take for my video to be ready?

A. We are a part of many weddings in the summer.  So please allow 3 weeks to receive your wedding video.

How can I order additional chairs?

A. Additional chairs are definitely available.  But please order your extra chairs at least a week before your big day.  Unfortunately, we can not guarantee additional chair rentals the day of your wedding.  But be assured we will make sure to touch base with you about this a few weeks before your wedding.

Q? I have some other beach wedding questions, can I contact you and how?

A. Of course, brides can call or email us anytime.  302-581-0190.  First of all, we love to put our brides at ease with their planning.  In addition, we are always happy to share our knowledge and experiences.  Finally, you have no bad questions in our minds.
