Some key things to think about if you plan to have a beach wedding. Check out the space at the same time of day as your ceremony to determine key logistics like: will guest be facing the sun and squinting? Also try to determine when the ocean or lake looks the prettiest. They say 15 minutes before sunset is best. If the reception will flow after the ceremony, think of casual seating to fit the carefree nature of the beach vibe. Tons of pillows, blankets and candles will create a magical feel. Paper lanterns and STRING LIGHTS does wonders for giving off a romantic glow. Airy sheer fabric, burlap, and shells are some popular beach wedding elements to help transform the space.
