Beach Wedding at a Private Beach House
Are you considering getting married on the beach at a private beach house? Big Day Wedding’s beach wedding packages can be set up on any beach, including a private beach house, a beach condominium or a beach hotel. Of course, you will have to check with the owner or management company to make sure the property owner allows weddings to be hosted on their beach.
Parking at a private beach house may be limited, make sure you confirm that your guests will be able to park at or near the beach house. If not, your Big Day Wedding planner can help you evaluate transportation options such as a private shuttle or van.
Planning Your Wedding
Home owners and rental companies will likely want to know how many guests you are expecting. While you may already have an approximate head count, keep in mind that wedding guest lists tend to grow with time. There is often an aunt or a cousin or a childhood friend that is initially left of the wedding list.
You might be surprised how many of your friends and family want to attend once they find out you are getting married on the beautiful white sands of the Gulf Coast. Everybody loves a beach vacation!
Things to Consider
Make sure there is a designated path for your wedding party to access the beach. Sea oats and other dune building vegetation need to be protected. In some cases, the home may have a private bridge that crosses the sand dunes. In other situations, your guests will have to cross the dunes on their own. You can help keep them moving in the right direction by lining the pathway with tiki torches.
For any beach wedding, you should consider having a designated area for your guests to leave their shoes. Walking on the sand barefoot tends to be far easier than in shoes.
