Is The Beach Really The Best Wedding Venue For You?

You have most likely contemplated getting married on the beach at some point in your life, with the sun setting in the background and the waves lapping the shore. This is the idyllic view that we have in our minds, but the truth is that this is not quite what you will get if you have a beach wedding. In fact, it can be quite the opposite. Your day can be completely ruined in seconds by so many factors.

Beware Mother Nature

We all know just how volatile mother nature can be, but if you position yourself next to a beach, you are asking for trouble, simply because wherever the sea is, you are sure to find a climate that is unstable.

  • Wind. This is perhaps the biggest factor that can ruin a beach wedding, simply because it can stir so many things up at once. Firstly, the wind can bring about cloud cover that is unnecessary. This means that your sunny day can vanish in a heartbeat. It can also, of course, send tons of sand into your eyes and onto your dress. This is the last thing that you want on your wedding day. It can also make a lot of noise, resulting in the speeches and vows becoming very difficult to hear.
  • Natural elements. Sure, you can try to predict the tide and when it will come in, but we have all seen those wedding fail videos where the tide all but washes the bride and the groom away while they are posing for a romantic photo. You don’t want to be that bride who attends her reception in a wet dress do you? Thought not.
  • Climate. The climate at the sea can be warm the one minute and freezing the next. Sadly, there is no way to prepare yourself for this. On the day of the wedding, you will just have the dress that you picked. The last thing that you want is to be uncomfortable during on your special day, so rather just avoid the beach altogether.

These are just a few of the reasons why you should avoid getting married at the beach at all costs and rather pick a lovely country wedding venue. A country wedding venue can provide you with that same feeling of being ‘one with nature’ as you say your vows. You can also be sure that the surroundings will look amazing in pictures!
