It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be very stressful—especially if it is a large, formal event. It’s no wonder that smaller, more intimate weddings have grown in popularity, with seaside nuptials leading the way. There are several advantages for choosing a beach wedding, and below are the top five!
Stunning wedding gowns
Beach weddings offer an array of wedding gown choices. Some brides think of simpler gowns with flowing fabrics that feel breezy and light, while others want to go bold with a beach wedding gown that breaks the rules. No matter your preference, all will look fabulous on the sand and shore. Below are some wave-worthy styles from Made with Love Bridal.
More time with guests
Couples that have large traditional weddings often don’t get enough one-on-one time with the guests at a formal affair. However, considering that a destination or beach wedding tends to be smaller, the happy couple will have more time to spend with close family and friends as opposed to breaking up your time among hundreds of people.
Remember, the fewer number of guests, the less money you will spend on pricey things like food, drinks, invitations, wedding party gifts and more. Another huge bonus is that the money spent on wedding décor can be kept at a minimum because the ocean itself serves as the most spectacular backdrop imaginable!
Many beach weddings are held at resorts where wedding packages are available, and are often at reasonable prices. Take the time to look around and see what is in your budget. With a smaller wedding, you could even afford a wedding planner to make things a bit less stressful.
Wedding and honeymoon combo
A beach wedding obviously comes with a beach honeymoon. Even if you live near a beach, check into some local accommodations that will pamper you and your new spouse at an affordable price. So, you can have the wedding of your dreams, then stay as long as your budget allows for a seaside honeymoon you will never forget.
