Are you planning on getting married by the ocean? If so, the beach may play a big role in how you plan for your big day. Whether you need programs or wedding invitations with a beach theme, Wedding Paper Divas has a wide selection of stationery. However, when you are getting married on a beach, you have to think about more than the invitations you’re going to send out.
5 Tips to Help Your Beach Wedding Go Smoothly
The beach is a beautiful setting, but without the right planning it could spell disaster. Use these tips as you plan for your nuptials.
Bring along beach appropriate shoes. It can be hard to walk through the sand in heels. It may be a good idea to provide your guests with flip flops to make it easier for them as well.
Incorporate a sound system. Any outdoor setting will have a lot of noises competing for your guests’ ears. Using a sound system when possible will make it easier for everyone to catch the vows.
Expect a crowd. Depending on where you are getting married, you may not be able to have the beach to yourself on your big day. You should either expect a crowd or work with a resort that can privatize the beach for you.
Consider choosing a less formal dress. Many formal dresses are made of thick fabrics, which can cause a mess on a beach. You may also want to forgo a veil to ensure you are the center of attention for the right reasons.
Warn your guests. As you think about your own attire, you may want to let your guests know that the wedding will be on a beach. To make sure everyone is on the same page, you need to make sure the wedding invitation’s beach theme is apparent.
Beach weddings aren’t for everyone, but when they are done right they can be beautiful. With proper planning, your beach wedding may turn out well.

"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."

"This invitation was exactly what we were looking for! It has our wedding colors on it. I love how you can personalize it with whatever font you like. We ordered it on the shimmery paper and loved the turnout. Can't wait to get them ready and send them out! Thank you Wedding Paper Divas! They are beautiful."

"I really liked this design, but I was nervous that it would be hard to communicate my tweaks without meeting someone in person. I made a couple of tweaks, and the team was able to complete all of them and they made the product even better than I was thinking. Really easy process and the took minimal effort on my end!"

"Exactly what I had in mind! Absolutely perfect for our picnic in the park wedding. The paper is substantial, the artwork is exactly as depicted online and the text looks beautiful."

"I did extensive personalization with this invite. I had custom colors with the flowers and different font (also in different colors). I got my proof quickly and it matched what I envisioned in my mind exactly! When the invites were delivered they were beautiful and the colors were awesome. I just sent them out and have received lots of compliments on them!"
