5 Tips for planning your Beachfront Wedding Ceremony

Private Beach

What could be more romantic and intimate than nuptials on a private beach? Capture the blissful intimacy of your ceremony on a secluded sandy shoreline. 

Wedding Dress/Suit

A simple light, flowy dress style creates a dreamy beachside look. With the ocean breeze in mind, opt for a shorter veil. For men, consider a suit of light-weight fabric. You could even lose the jacket and showcase dapper suspenders.


Croppy wind-tossed for short hair and beach curls or side braid for longer looks. You may wish to feature a floral crown or headband instead of a veil.


Keep it simple. With a gorgeous beachfront setting, Mother Nature has done the decorating for you.


With any outdoor venue, your music should be amplified. Suggest your officiant wear a microphone to ensure your vows are heard and don’t drift out to sea.
