5 Top Reasons to have a Beach Wedding
Imagine having palm trees, bougainvillea, and the ocean blue of the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop for your beach wedding. Nothing can be more romantic than that. And guess what! You’re not the only one who thinks like that.
Beach weddings have skyrocketed in popularity in the last decade. And its appeal just keeps growing. And there are 5 very excellent reasons for that.
Reason One: By taking your wedding on the road, you automatically make it romantic, unique and memorable. No longer do you see the same church, the same deejay, the same tray-passed chicken satay as the last three weddings.
Reason Two: A smaller guest list. Not only will you be able to count on more declines, you’ll also be better able to explain your decision to keep things small and intimate. Imagine slashing your guest list to 75% of what it would be otherwise; that means if your guests list was 200 it would be a mere 50. Just think of what that would do to your budget
Reason Three: It gives you permission for you to spend significant time with family and friends. The shared meals and activities, ranging from golf to yoga, create a wonderful, intimate and camplike atmosphere.
Reason Four: Less hassle. Because you kept it small and with the help of a wedding coordinator, a beach wedding (paradoxically) can be less intensive to plan, allowing the bride to feel like all she has to do is show up.
Reason Five and any parents favorite reason of them all: Because of the small guest list, a beach wedding actually cost less than a regular wedding. That is assuming that you are not only going to bring in vendors from New York and flying in flowers and rentals.
Just think of the wonderful cost saving opportunity that may free up some money to put a down payment on your home or pay off some student loans.
So don’t count beach wedding out. It can be fun, easy and relatively inexpensive to have. All the things any bride must have in her dream wedding.
