Important Things to Consider When Planning a Beach Wedding

As a beach lover, you’ll definitely want to spend one of the most important days of your life near the water. Especially if you share the same love for the beach with your fiancĂ©, deciding to go for a beach wedding is something that no longer needs to be discussed. If this is something you want, here are some things to remember when planning a beach wedding:

When you’re planning your wedding, make sure that you decide whether or not you want to go with a theme. The common themes used in weddings include nautical or Hawaiian themes. If this is something you would like to follow for your wedding, make sure that you let your wedding planner know about it.

Dress Code
Remember to always indicate the dress code on your invitations. This is so your guests will know what to expect from your wedding day. Instead of wearing a long formal gown, your guests will know that it’s best to be casual about your beach wedding. After all, their comfort is something you would want to instill.

Time to Get Married
While the most popular time to get married is during sunset, you can also opt for a sunrise wedding; especially if you consider yourself a morning person. Make sure you decide on this carefully, considering the number of people who will be at the beach after breakfast. Also, make sure you provide shades and sunglasses if going with a sunrise wedding so that your guests will not have difficulty battling the heat.

There’s no comparing with how beautiful beach weddings can be. If you want your wedding day to go perfect, make sure you hire a wedding planner to help you organize it. Call us today to learn more about the services we offer for beach weddings!

Sending Out Save the Date Cards for Your Destination Wedding

When you’re having a destination wedding, it is important that you send out your Save the Date invitations early on. The reason for this is so your guests can prepare for your wedding and have enough time to do so. At the same time, your guests will be able to book for their plane tickets early. Since airline tickets can be cheap when booked early on, your guests will be able to save money on this.

Once you have decided on the wedding venue, date, and time, the next thing you have to do is send out your Save the Date invitations. Especially since these types of weddings are usually planned ahead a year or more prior to the ceremony itself, your guests can make the necessary travel arrangements most reasonable and suitable for them.

Here are some tips on how you can prepare Save the Date Invitations for your guests:
  • Prepare Save the Date cards by including necessary information on them: wedding date, location, and your names. If you are planning to keep your guests updated regularly, you can create a blog for your wedding. There you can create posts about hotel information, airports, and other activities that you have in store for your guests. 

  • Keep your Save the Date card simple by not including as much information. This card should not serve as your formal invitation so make sure that you include a note on the bottom for ‘Invitation to follow’ so that they know about a formal invitation.

There are lots of ways you can keep your guests updated about your wedding day. For starters, you can hire a travel agent that specializes in destination weddings. Call us today to learn more how you can send out Save the Date cards to your guests.

Dressing Tips for a Bride on Her Beach Wedding

If money were not an issue, plenty of people would seriously be dreaming of having a beach wedding. This is particularly true for couples that love going to the beach together. But because beach weddings can get pretty pricey, there are only a few number of couples that go for this type of wedding.

If you are among those that have decided to spend money for a beach wedding, here are some things you should know about:

While you won’t be able to wear a glamorous wedding dress, having a beach wedding saves you from that expense. On such types of weddings, however, you have to go for a dress that’s simple and comfortable enough to wear on a beach. This is so you can walk easily and have your photos taken without any problem.

If you’ve never attempted to walk on sand wearing high heels, it is really something that should not be suggested. If you insist on wearing heels, you will only end up having a difficult time trying to make it to the altar during your wedding ceremony. Instead of heels, go for flat-soled sandals like wedges or espadrilles.

A beach wedding is usually outdoors. This means that the weather can get pretty difficult to predict, especially when you’re dealing with wind. As such, you should consider getting an updo hairstyle on your wedding so that you can keep your hair in check.

There are two reasons on why you should reconsider wearing a veil on your beach wedding. The first reason is that if it is windy, you will have a lot of difficulty trying to get the veil stay in place. At the same time, when you wear a long veil, it can get dirty in no time because of the sand. If you neither want these two scenarios, skip the bridal veil.

A beach wedding is a really exciting way to celebrate your love for one another. If you’re interested in having one, feel free to give us a call! We’ll talk about your vision and let things happen!

Factors that Contribute to a Higher Airfare for Your Destination Wedding

Deciding to have a destination wedding is a very exciting choice. This is because when you decide to have one, you will be planning a trip to go along with your wedding day. While this can be a very exciting decision, it can also be very expensive. This is why you need to know how to save on costs on your airfare for your destination wedding. Here are some tips:

Direct Flights – One of the most important things you have to remember about your airfare is whether or not you will be getting a direct flight. You will have to consider this, especially when you book a destination wedding that is on another island. Make sure that you consider this and assess if you are willing to spend on the destination. Otherwise, you may opt for an alternative mode of transportation.

Holiday Flights – An important thing you have to remember about planning your wedding day is that the date plays an important role. When you opt for a wedding during a holiday, you will have to prepare to pay a higher price compared to a regular day. Especially during Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s, you can expect to pay a higher amount of money when traveling.

Peak Season Rates – Even though booking your trip during peak season can be a very exciting time for your wedding, you have to prepare for the costs that come along with it. This does not just relate to your airfare. As a matter of fact, prices for hotel accommodations and other travel related costs will go up during peak season.

Weekend Wedding – Having a weekend wedding can also be expensive, no matter where you have it. This is why you should consider the date when you will be getting married. Usually, rates are high during Fridays until Sundays. If you want to save money, you can opt for a weekday wedding.

When you’re planning your destination wedding, you have to factor in all of these costs. While you’re thinking about your expenses, you also have to think about the costs that your guests will incur. Call us today so we can help you with your destination wedding planning. We can help lower the costs of your big day!
