Must-Have's For A Beachside Wedding

There’s a little more planning that goes into a beachy wedding day…

We totally love an outdoor beach wedding, but don’t forget about all that sand and sunshine! You want your guests to enjoy every minute of the special day, so don’t forget to take into account their experience throughout too! Have no fear, we’ve gathered a few wedding day details for your beachside nuptials that will ensure happy guests!

If you’re having a true beachside wedding day, offer extra footwear to guests that may not want to dirty their fancy shoes. Beachy sandals for a sandy ceremony will be a hit with your guests.

Sunglasses are a must-have for a daytime waterside ceremony! Not only it is a fun little favour to personalise for your day, your guests will appreciate the extra thought you put into protecting their eyes.

A sunny summer wedding may get toasty, especially if your ceremony runs long. Create your own wedding programs that double as fans to keep friends and family cool under the sunshine.

It may get a little chilly sitting next to the water. Offering a little cover will have your guests shouting with joy instead of shivering.
