But having a beach destination wedding comes with some different things to consider than just your regular wedding. Follow these tips below so you can have the wedding of your dreams!


Send save the dates early

Choosing a destination wedding can be super fun for your guests as it becomes a vacation for everyone! But, just as any vacation, they can also be expensive. It's best to send save the dates extra early so your guests can start budgeting early! We recommend sending save the dates at least 6 - 8 months before the wedding.

Bring your photographer

Photographs are one of the only physical things you will keep from your wedding. Because of this, you should find the best photographer for you. We recommend asking a photographer of your choice to do your engagement photos and if you love those, it's worth the extra cost to hire them to come with you to your beach destination wedding. Just make sure you let the photographer know as not everyone will be willing to travel!

Consider your wedding dress

A big ball gown may be gorgeous but think about how hot the dress will make you, how heavy it will be while walking in the sand and how dirty the dress will become! Of course, if your heart is set on it - go for it! Just be sure to think about how the dress will be on the day of before making your final choice! We recommend light and flowy wedding dresses so you can move easy on the big day.
