A beach wedding is common if you live in Miami, Florida. A Beach wedding is very romantic, and a perfect setting for your pictures. There are lots of options when it comes to choosing a theme. For the Ceremony, you have the option to either have your ceremony on the sand or in a hotel on the beach that has the view of the beach. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that if you will be choosing to do your ceremony, reception or both at the beach on the outside, it is always best to always have a back-up plan in the event of rain.
You can have Tiki torches on the sand if you choose to do your ceremony on the sand. A more romantic approach for your beach wedding would be to use candle vases and fill them with sand and place a candle in the center, and you can even include 2- large iron candle holder stands on each side of the location where you will be exchanging your vows. Want to add a special touch to your beach wedding ceremony for your guests? You can purchase a variety of rubber slippers and place them on metal buckets right before your guests come in to the sand.
This is a very special way of letting your guests know that you thought of their comfort when planning your wedding. Group the sizes together and make sure to place a label on the outside of the pail with the size # for your guests. In addition, on the side of the pails include a one or two small bamboo runners and two chairs for your guests to change their shoes and leave on the runner. Make sure to have someone guide your guests to the shoe changing section prior to entering your ceremony. The women will definitely love the idea, since getting your heels stuck on the sand is not enjoyable.
To continue with the beach wedding decorations, you can hang large sand dollars or starfish from the chairs that are on the inside of the aisle. Lastly if you are planning your ceremony during the summer, you may want to include as a wedding favor, like a bamboo fan on each chair, and you can incorporate your wedding colors by adding a ribbon with the bride and grooms name and the wedding date printed on the ribbon or simply attach a little card-stock paper and using clear labels print your information, punch a hole on one corner and attach to the bamboo fan with the ribbon color of your choice.
