7 Reasons Why A Beach Wedding Is Right For You

1. You have a more relaxed personality

You have found the love of your life and you can not wait to be married to him. However, you do not want to be stressed out the next year planning a “traditional cookie cutter” wedding. A beach wedding involves much less planning and a lot less stress.  

2. You are looking for a more Intimate Affair

Most likely a beach wedding will be a destination wedding. Usually only close friends and family will be willing to make the trip to your wedding. This will allow you to celebrate your special day with the people that mean the most to you. You will not spend your wedding day in a receiving line talking to an annoying co-worker or a weird cousin that you have not seen or spoken to in years.

3. You will get a beautiful backdrop for your wedding without an exorbitant price tag

Picture yourself standing with the man you love with the sand tickling your toes, the cool ocean breeze gently blowing through your hair, and the warm sun slowly dipping creating a magical sky. Venues and Churches across the country have no comparison to the wonderful ambiance created on the beach. Please check out our locations.

4. You don’t have the time or money for a honeymoon

The great part of having your wedding at the beach is the honeymoon is already built-in. Perhaps your family and closest friends were able to come down for your Saturday wedding. You stay in a wonderful hotel or house right near the beach. Most of your family will be headed back Sunday evening to go to work the following week. You and your new husband can stay an extra few days. Plenty of time to soak up some extra sun on the beach, share romantic dinners and evenings, and talk about the wonderful beach wedding you just shared.

5. You run with a group of people who love travel and adventure

Now if you are just planning on eloping then this really is not a concern of yours. However, if you are hoping that certain friends and family will attend then you must first consider their personalities. If a favorite sister or best friend hates traveling or leaving the comfort of home then a beach wedding may not be right for you. On the other hand, if you run with a group who loves travel or an excuse to get away a beach wedding is perfect for you.

6. A Beach Wedding is Budget Friendly

Of course, there is the additional cost of travel. However, you are saving money almost everywhere else. Fewer guests mean a lot less money spent on food and the reception venue. Often the groom and groomsmen will wear more casual attire which saves money. Having the wedding right on the beach means you will not have to pay to rent a church. Often times an entire beach ceremony including the minister, chairs, altar, and music can cost less than the rental fee for the church. Please check out beach wedding packages.

7. You are a Beach Girl at Heart

Many of our brides spent time every summer hanging out on the beach growing up. All of their fondest memories involved the sun, waves and ocean breezes. Now their lives are taking the next step. They want to say “I Do” in front of a small gathering of friends and family in their absolute favorite place, The Beach.
