Beach weddings are alluring. You are out in the open, in a romantic oceanfront setting. The warm breeze and waves are soothing, setting the scene. It is not your typical traditional wedding. An intimate beach wedding allows you to plan your wedding day in simplicity. You have the choice to explore many simplistic or extravagant beach and oceanside wedding themes.
1. Beach Accessibility
Many people overlook the accessibility of a beach wedding location. Make it easy to access the beach from the wedding location. Ensure your team has good access to prepare the setup, and your guests enjoy easy access onto the beach. The North Star Micro Hotel offers easy access to the beach from the lawn and the deck.
2. The sound of waves and your vows
It is magical to hear the waves crashing against the beach. It can be difficult for your guests to listen to your ceremony because of the ocean sound. Plan to have a professional sound system for the guests to listen to your vows and the ceremony. You can access power for the sound equipment from the North Star Hotel power points outside.
3. Make your decor windproof.
You will need to plan your décor to suit the beach elements. Gusty windy conditions can happen at any moment. It is a good idea to keep your beach wedding decor simplistic and sturdy. Choose flower varieties that will withstand high temperatures and not wilt before your ceremony.
4. Make sure there is shade for your guests.
You can plan a designer tent to protect everyone from the sun. A sunshade is a must to be comfortable. Your wedding planner at the North Star hotel can assist you with the best options. The North Star Micro Hotel lawn is perfect for a wedding ceremony tent.
5. Keep your food protected.
Food can spoil quickly in high temperatures. You can plan to serve food closer to your tent and plan well to avoid melting cakes. The kitchen, dining room and Belvedere bar all offer protected areas to present food.
6. Select the perfect dress and dress code
You want to wear something that does not cause you to overheat. A light dress in the summer climate is an excellent option to consider. If you wear a long gown, plan your dress well to move around and take beautiful pictures. Lightweight fabric in a hot Umhlanga climate is ideal. It is essential to stay cool on the beach. Plan a casual look for the groom and his best men on the beach.
