BEACH WEDDINGS CAN BE UNIQUE, AND THERE ARE SOME BASIC GUIDELINES THAT CAN HELP YOU ORGANIZE YOUR GUEST LIST. THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES HOW TO ARRANGE YOUR GUEST LIST FOR A BEACH WEDDING.
You will need to plan ahead, so arrange a location for your wedding. The first thing you need to decide is where you want your wedding to take place. Since it is on the beach, you may want to hold it near a public beach, or at the top of a large hill that is easily accessible by your guests.
Once you have chosen a location, it is time to start getting dates, times, and tickets. If you have had lots of practice arranging beach weddings, you might find this task easier than you would with a more formal venue. This is especially true if you plan to incorporate your own musicians and other outside entertainment into your special day. However, if you are less familiar with beach weddings, it might prove a bit more difficult.
Number of Invites
You will also need to consider the number of people you will be inviting to your wedding. If you are planning for a large group, there is a good chance that your guests will be packed together, in close quarters. You will need to book hotel rooms and tables to accommodate the number of people you expect to invite. A beach wedding can be so beautiful, but also has a lot of small potholes.
Having a room for the beach at your reception can be especially difficult, because you will not have enough room for all the guests. You will need to have additional seating, and look for other locations that you can arrange your seating to accommodate a larger number of people. Plan ahead, and make sure that the area you choose will not only be comfortable, but also contain a way for your guests to get from one location to another.
Children on Wedding
If you are having a child, you will want to make sure that they can sit next to their new partner. If you have someone with special needs, you will need to make sure that everyone is able to sit down and relax while the person needs to be seated. This may mean rearranging tables to accommodate them, or going to a different location for the service.
Romantic Beach Wedding
Since beach weddings are meant to be romantic, you may want to use the bride and groom’s beach backdrop as a focal point for your party. You may need to rent the whole venue for the evening, so you will need to make sure that you have all of the important things on hand for this one night. You will need lighting, catering equipment, and any other necessary items for a beach wedding. It can get expensive, but it is well worth it to have a memorable event.
One final consideration is the cost of the event. For most weddings, the costs can add up quickly and planning ahead can help. So check the weather and scheduling around your wedding in advance, and you will have an amazing night.
