4 Things to Look Out For If You’re Planning A Beach Wedding

When executed well, a beach wedding can be a gorgeous and memorable event. It makes for an idyllic scene to exchange your vows against a beautiful sunset, overlooking a white sandy beach and accompanied by the crashing of waves. Before you go all-in on your seaside escapade though, there are some things that you and your partner have to take note of.

Weather

Holding your wedding at the beach isn’t just beautiful, it can be cost-effective too. The natural beauty of the beach makes for a beautiful backdrop that doesn’t require much decoration to beautify.

Singapore’s unpredictable weather, however, means that you and your partner may have to reserve an alternate venue as a wet weather plan. Needing to book another venue would also offset any cost savings that a beach wedding would give you, and moving all your guests to another location would be highly inconvenient and disruptive.

Dress code

A beach wedding means plenty of sun and sand and may require you to come up with a specific dress code for you and your guests so that they look wedding-appropriate without being inconvenienced. For example, high heels and sequined gowns are hardly beach-faring wear, but being surrounded by people in beach shorts and swimsuits won’t make for good wedding photos as well.

Therefore, it is imperative that you and your partner come up with a clear definition of what is and is not appropriate to wear to your wedding. Do take care not to be too restrictive with your lists, as it would mean that your guests have to go out of their way to accommodate your requests!

An uncontrolled environment

Having a wedding in the great outdoors also means that your event will be susceptible to all sorts of unpredictable circumstances. Beaches in Singapore are usually in or adjacent to public beaches, which can mean disruptions from beachgoers and logistical difficulty for caterers to set up.

In addition to the occasional stray frisbee, beaches are also teeming with wildlife. Whether it’s birds swooping in on your food or your guests being food for mosquitoes and other bugs, you and your partner definitely have to take these considerations into account!

Timing is everything

Weddings are notorious for running on insanely tight schedules. This is especially true for beach weddings, as there are even more time-sensitive factors that can have a significant impact on your special day.

Though natural light can help you capture beautiful photos, this is entirely dependent on how you manage your schedule. Too close to the harsh midday sun and your photos will result in unflattering shadows loss of depth. Too close to sunset, and any delays in the programme will make it too dark.

Other time-sensitive elements include the ebb and flow of the tides. This is especially important if you and your partner intend on being close as close to the shore as possible. If you do not take the tide cycles into account, you may find your decorations being washed away.

Best of both worlds
