You will need to consider the following pros and cons to having beach wedding.
Why a Beach Wedding is Right for You
It's a unique experience for you and your guests a beach wedding allows you more creative freedom. It's a chance to actually spend some quality time with your guests. You can have a mini vacation for 3 to 4 days with your guests before the wedding. As soon as you are pronounced husband and wife you will already be on your honeymoon. No waiting, no travel time. You are already there! You have freedom to make your wedding truly your own. It can be traditional, untraditional or a combination of both.
Why a Beach Wedding May Not be Right for You
You probably will not have as many guests at your wedding as you would at home. Not everyone will be able to take the time or have the money to spend on the trip. This may save you some money, but if you dreamed of the big wedding with hundreds of guests, you might be disappointed.
You will have to learn to be more laid back and relax about some of the details. Unless you can afford to make several trips to the location where you will be married, you will have to leave some of the details up to coordinator on site. You will have to be comfortable using e-mail to plan your wedding. A destination wedding on the beach is not always stress free. You may have some extra tasks such as organizing events for guests at the wedding location prior to the wedding. You will have to consider the weather as well and have a contingency plan. Last minutes changes are a possibility for outdoor weddings.
