It’s almost time for your exotic beach wedding. You have been planning for months. All that planning can make it easy to forget the little things. Utilize this checklist to help keep plans in order.
Preparing for your beach destination wedding can be both exciting and overwhelming. There are a lot of last minute plans to consider for both the wedding itself as well as at home. Having a checklist can help you avoid missing an important last minute detail.
The Back-up Plan
Because weather can be unpredictable, it is vital that you have a sound-proof back-up plan. This can be an alternate indoor location or a large tent set up away from the water. By having a back-up plan when preparing for your beach destination wedding, you can avoid last minute spoilers on your big day.
Preparing for your beach destination wedding means packing for a traditional wedding as well. Unless you live right next to a beach, you will want to bring enough clothing for the trip. Sandals, your wedding dress, veil, bouquet, and any other accessories you plan to wear, should all also be included. If you plan on holding the reception at the beach as well, you may want to bring along a change of clothes and a sweater in case the weather gets chilly.
Another important thing to consider while preparing for your beach destination wedding is local beach laws. Some beaches will allow you to hold your wedding there for free. Others will require a permit. Other considerations may include guest maximums, tide schedule, alcohol restrictions, bonfire regulations, and locations of restrooms.
On the Home Front
Depending on how long you plan to be away, there may be a number of things at home you need to consider while preparing for your beach destination wedding. Will you need someone to pick up your mail? Will you need a pet sitter? Do you have indoor and outdoor plants that will have to be watered? Are all of your bills paid up until after you come home? These are a few of the things that you will need to consider before leaving for your beach wedding.
A beach wedding can be very romantic and is loads of fun. Making sure you have everything in order can help this special day to go smoothly. Although there may be other items to consider, these reminders should give you a head start in preparing for your beach destination wedding.
