Anyone get married on the beach and NOT use arches?

Recommended Posts

I am renewing my vows and I am using an arch. The reason I decided was since there will only be 6 of us participating, I wanted it to not look empty. It is basically going to be greenery with tropical colored flowers in 3 different spots. When I find the pic I will post it.

 

Also, I found another thread on the next page regarding arches and it had a bunch of pics.

Yeah, I decided to forfiet the arches. I think I will do a petal aisle and a sand ceremony table, that's all. I reallllllllly love the look of the arches, but I just can't justify that expense when there are so many other things that I want to do!

Here's a picture of our setup:

Not sure if your resort has this option, and I didn't think I'd like it, but after seeing it in person, I really like how the palapas frame the setup.

I am having the EXACT same issue. I really wanted a pretty chuppa with white line linens, then I got the quote and about had a heart attack. So I need some serious inspiration too....

We are not getting married in the sand but rather on the grass overlooking the sand and the water and I refused to pay for the arch because i'm el cheapo! :)

 

So this is what we are doing instead...2 large flower arrangements at the front of the chairs by us to set the "alter" with the table off to the side for the sand ceremony and thats it....$100 for each arrangement was much cheaper than the the arch.

I know what you mean. I am getting married in Maui (i think) and they all are public beaches but Maui beaches need permits to set anything like arches or chairs. My WC suggested for a ring of flowers and I wouldn't get charged for the permit, but I am so set on having a arch that I said i rather pay $.. but You could do that. It's pretty

I really like the idea of no arch. I like the scenic view of the ocean and its FREE!

 

I just don't feel the $$ they are asking for is worth the look of the arches. I find most of them ugly.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
