Destination Beach Wedding

Considering a wedding at a beach that isn't close to home? A destination wedding is a fun way to get married while you, your family and friends are all on vacation together.

Wedding Planner

While it may seem like getting married on the beach will be a figurative breeze, we recommend hiring a planner to handle the unforeseen logistics of a beach wedding. Whether you need a permit for a specific area, or you need someone to handle hordes of sunbathers plopped down where your altar will be, it's good to have a pro on hand to help with these sticky situations.

Work with a bridal consultant who specializes in beach weddings, since they'll have the know-how you need to pull of this type of shindig.

For a destination wedding, it's important to get a wedding planner based in the area where you'll be married to help you navigate a particular beach's requirements (since these can vary by county and within towns). Planners also serve as expert eyes for finding—and overseeing—local vendors.


First off, you'll want to find a photographer who's shot beach weddings. Shutterbugs not experienced with beach photography may be unfamiliar with the proper lighting techniques. Also, take advantage of the beauty of your natural surroundings: waves crashing in the distance, a sunset backdrop beside the water's edge. For great candids, loosen up. Kick the sand, turn a cartwheel or simply stroll hand in hand. In addition, prepare a list of must-have shots in advance.

What to Wear

Typically, beach brides don't opt for a ball gown because they might be too cumbersome and look overly fussy. Seaside weddings call for a gown made of lightweight fabric—anything else and you'll be weighed down and hot. Also, remember: It could be windy. A long veil and long hair could get blown into your face. An updo could be a good choice to keep your tresses tame.

Grooms and groomsmen often sport linen suits, but if it's really hot, guys can forgo the jacket and wear a loose shirt and pants. For the bridesmaids, light, airy fabrics are key; for comfort, try cotton, crepe or linen. We think nothing says "beach wedding" like a simple sarong or sundress blowing in the breeze.



Beautiful blooms add bursts of color to any space, including the beach. Consult with a local florist to choose the right flowers for your fete—some island locales might have limited options.

Direct sunlight and heat are no-gos for many blossoms, and you'll want flowers that last. Those that wilt easily, like freesia, poppies and bouvardia, aren't good choices. But gorgeous orchids, chrysanthemums and plumeria are surprisingly hardy and hold up well in almost any kind of weather. Or opt for non-floral décor. For beach-themed centerpieces for example, fill large conch shells or colorful beach pails with your chosen flowers.

Food & Drink

A beach wedding in Hawaii will be quite different from a seaside ceremony in the South of France, and your menu can reflect that. Incorporate foods and customs of the area. Hawaiian weddings, for example, can involve local delicacies such as poi and roast pig. Similarly, Caribbean choices include jerk chicken, and almost any beach locale can offer fresh seafood. When selecting your menu, also consider the temperature—many foods will spoil in the heat. For example, a raw bar is best done inside where there's air-conditioning. Many fresh fruits and veggies can go bad if left in the sun, and cheese will melt. Cocktails can be made with tropical or local flavors as well. In hot weather, instruct servers to keep guests' water glasses full so they don't get dehydrated, and don't get too tipsy from drinking alcoholic beverages quickly.

Time Of Day

Most beaches don’t have much shade so heat is an important consideration. The Australian coastline is also prone to be windy. To counteract these conditions consider getting married early in the morning, or an hour before sunset. Don’t forget to check the tide times — the last thing you want are waves lapping at your feet. Tides are noisier coming in, so pick a time when the tide is going out.

Beach Wedding Attire

The beach is not the place for a fully beaded custom made ball gown with a hoop skirt, or a dark three-piece suit. Your surfside wedding outfit should be made of lightweight fabric that will float beautifully without flying away in a gust of wind. A long veil may get in the way, and loose long hair could end up in your mouth when trying to say your vows. Linen suits look casual and elegant and pants and a shirt are a great choice too. Comfort should always be the primary consideration on your wedding day, especially when you’re waterside.

Beach Flowers

Pick flowers for your bouquets that will survive in the hot sun. When it comes to decorating the ceremony space (if you need to at all), think about rocks, shells, driftwood or other found objects from nature.

Couple Support

A little known trick to assist with the logistics of a beach wedding is to bury a large piece of plywood, carpet or perspex just under the sand where the celebrant and couple will stand. This helps the wedding party feel more secure and supported, and will also save the day if a ring is dropped.

Speak Up

Beaches are noisy, with the sound of waves, wind, birds and the general public. Even with a small number of guests, you will need a portable PA system to amplify the spoken words during the ceremony. Your celebrant should have a battery-powered speaker and microphone. Make sure your entrance, signing and exit music is upbeat and loud so it can be heard clearly over the ambient noise. When you are saying your vows, project your voice a little more than usual.
