As an experienced Palm Beach wedding planner, I know there are literally hundreds of luxurious venues to choose from in the Palm Beach area for your wedding day. While you can decide to hold your reception at any of these and be extremely satisfied, some brides and grooms prefer a sandy setting for the ceremony.
First of all, beaches radiate romance with the gorgeous sand, the soothing sounds of the ocean, and the most picture-perfect setting offered by Mother Nature. The natural background brings fantasies of being married in paradise to reality. Daytime ceremonies are optimum for lighting and the sunsets are divinely gorgeous here. And talk about breath-taking pictures that you will revel in over the years!
Another beautiful aspect of having a beach ceremony is that you choose how formal or informal it will be. Flowing gown or barefoot? Will the groom be suited in a traditional tuxedo, a button-down shirt with shorts, or somewhere in-between? You can decide upon any theme you desire. A beach ceremony tends to take some of the pressure off of the minute details which conventional ceremonies can hold. There is literally freedom on so many planning decisions that you need to make for this special day.
If you’re wanting to plan a beautiful Palm Beach wedding, you can rest assured that it will be unique and truly memorable. The possibilities of locations are endless with miles of sandy beach to choose from.
Beach weddings typically are for a smaller guest list compared to the possible hundreds you could invite to a traditional church or indoor venue. Creating a more intimate experience can reduce your stress since you will be enjoying the company of only your family and close friends.
If you are concerned with a budget, beach ceremonies typically cost less than traditional weddings. This may be an option which fits into your finances easier. With that said, many couples still choose elaborate details which are personal to their tastes.
Sunscreen is vital for the bride and groom to avoid sunburns, especially when it’s one of the biggest picture days of your life! And choosing from a collective array of flowers that can hold their own against the heat is imperative. No bride wants wilting flowers.
Your reception can be held anywhere. While some still prefer a simple reception on the beach, many will flock to the luxurious resorts. There are endless possibilities but here are a few for ideas: Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, PGA National Resort and Spa, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, Eau Palm Beach, and The Addison.
Sounds systems, styling, proper setup for chances of wind, and many other details are crucial to your wedding being as perfect as possible.
