A beach wedding is a great way to take a wedding ceremony and give it a unique twist. This is one kind of wedding that is sure to be remembered for quite some time. After all, who does not want to sink their toes into the sand and gaze at the ocean on their big day?
If you are having a beach wedding, you will need to take extra care when it comes time to choose your beach wedding dress and the clothing of your groom and guests. The following are some things to consider when it comes to brainstorming beach wedding ideas. Since the wedding is outside, you need to think about how this outside location will affect everything from the clothing you and your loved ones wear to whether or not you choose to wear a veil.
For example, if you wear a veil, the wind could easily not only blow it away from your face but could also end up twisting it around until it is unrecognizable. Similarly, since you are outside in the sun, it could certainly be quite hot. So, you may want to wear fabrics that are thin and airy and not thick like wool or synthetic materials. This will definitely save you and your loved ones a lot of grief and will make the event that much more enjoyable and memorable for all involved parties.
If you or your loved ones are wearing clothing that poses the shoulders or back, be sure to pass around sunscreen to protect against uncomfortable or painful burns. Lastly, you should think about whether or not you and your guests will wear shoes for this experience. Since you will be on the sand, walking or wearing shoes may be uncomfortable, especially if you or your guests is wearing heels of any sort.
If you decide to go barefoot, you should remember that the sand sometimes gets a bit hot and should bring mats or fabric on which you and your loved ones can stand if the sun has its way with the sand.
