Living on a tropical country has its perks. You can wear clothes fit for summer all year long. You can get an all year long tan and the best of all you can have a beach wedding any time of the year.
A Beach wedding in the Philippines spells a lot of fun and one of the most inviting things. In fact, a lot of couples do this because it’s intimate and relaxing. One advantage of the beach wedding is you can have the ceremony and the reception in one place. It saves you the hassle of having to ask your guest to move to another location for the reception. Imagine the sunset on the background, the warm sand at your feet, the sound of waves crashing – these are just a few of the things to expect.
Planning for a beach wedding is fun because you can get creative with the theme, the wedding favors, the food and the decorations.
Here are some tips and thoughts on a beach wedding:
Theme colors such as Aqua, Coral, and Teal have been associated with beach theme. These colors can be used on the invitations, decorations or even on your wedding cake! But you do not have to limit yourself on these colors. You can also have a color palette if you have 2 to 3 colors that you want placed in on your big day.

Attires for your guests or even for your bridesmaid can range from formal to informal. Same goes for their footwear. They can go barefoot or a simple flip flop. How big of a saving is that!

Wedding favors for your guest can be as simple as flip flops, sunglasses or can be as creative as a message in a bottle.

Venue. It is recommended that you contact a beach resort for the venue. You can ask them that you want your wedding to be only you, your groom and your guests. You will be assured that you will have the private ceremony.

Menu. Seafood such as shrimps, saang (Spider Shell), or fish can be the highlight of your menu that you serve to your guests. Barbeques are also a good idea to serve especially Lechon (roasted pork).
Weather. One disadvantage on a beach wedding is the weather. If it will rain on your big day, you can always ask the venue to prepare a tent or move your event to a room. Another thing to keep in mind is the wind. Winds can be unpredictable so plan accordingly.
After all that planning and organizing, I think it’s best you deserve an after party. You can have a bonfire at the beach and dance the night away with your husband and your guests. Or you can have a small intimate “hang out” moment and cook some hotdogs or s’mores. But I am getting ahead of myself.
I recommend you talk to a wedding coordinator and give your ideas on how you want your wedding to be. Joyful Weddings (http://joyfulweddings.ph/wedding-packages/) have some packages and services that you might consider to make your dream wedding come true.
And lastly, Congratulations!
