For the uninitiated, a beach wedding in Boracay looks easier to plan than the more traditional wedding. But wedding planners will tell you that the effort is just the same or even more especially if it’s a destination wedding. Lots of work is required to pull off an easy, breezy nuptial by the beach, but it’s definitely worth the effort.
If you are planning to hold your special day with sand in your toes and in full view of the absolutely breathtaking waters of Boracay, keep in mind the following tips.
1. Go for a daytime wedding
It’s a shame to waste the gorgeous scenery, which is basically what you paid for in a beach wedding. You will lose the magnificent backdrop of the ocean when the sun drops in the horizon, so avoid holding your wedding too late in the afternoon.
2. Choose flowers that can take the heat
Roses are truly beautiful, but they easily wilt and will cease to be picture-perfect after less than hour under the heat of sun. The same is true with hydrangeas as well. Opt for blooms that can withstand the heat, such as orchids, calla lilies, succulents, and freesias.
3. Dress lightly
The jaw-dropping wedding gown that looks perfect in an indoor church wedding may not be the right dress for a beach wedding. Stay away from heavy fabrics and constricted styles. Opt for lighter fabrics when choosing wedding gowns and outfits for the entourage. The groom may opt for a barong than a suit. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with color; beach weddings are perfect for wearing pale and pastel colors.
4. Ditch the high heels
Wouldn’t you want to feel the sand in your toes when you walk down the aisle? But if you can’t do away with shoes on your wedding day, just choose a sensible pair over stilettos. You wouldn’t want to sink in the sand everytime you take a step.
5. Prepare for the elements
The weather is the utmost concern when it comes to beach weddings. Always have a backup plan so your ceremony will not be ruined by rain and strong wind. You can have tents set-up or you can book for an alternate location where you can transfer to in case of uncooperative weather.
6. Check the accessibility
You should also be concerned about the convenience of your guests in attending your wedding. Prepare to make arrangements for elderly guests and PWD in your guest list if your location is a bit hard to reach. You may need to provide transportation and seating options for them.
7. Consider holding your big day at a resort
When it comes to destination beach weddings, a beach resort can be your best option. Most of them offer wedding packages that will save you tons of worries when planning your big day. They also have the best venues and accommodation choices too.
