Beach Ceremony - noisy or too public?
Posted 19 March 2008 - 07:31 PM
Anyone who has had a beach ceremony or been to one, I'd love to hear your thoughts! I don't know if it makes any difference, but we're having the wedding in Wailea, Maui, and the officiant is booked for 5:15pm.

You can usually search YouTube or even just google a photo site like Photobucket and if someone named their video or photos with part of your resort name, you'll get some visuals.
I had a beach wedding in Cabo and we had onlookers as I walked down the aisle but everyone was very respectful and I didn't notice anyone but my DH once I was up there.
It is something to be concerned about.

i can't speak for maui, but we had a pretty private ceremony. it was in front of a restaurant, but the restaurant wasn't busy b/c it was too early. there were actually people on the beach, still sitting in the palapas and our photographer took a picture of the couple as they read their books next to our ceremony...according to my guests, the couple didn't even look up! we had a microphone and speakers so everyone could hear.
we did have a few crashers at the reception...but my bm was on crash patrol and kicked all crashers out - even the ones i invited down from the balcony on the hotel!

We had our wedding on the Medano Beach (main beach) in Cabo where everyone is.....and yes we had random strangers in our pics in the background but we didn't mind, you couldn't see them all that much and also if you have a good photographer you can photoshop them out. We didn't mind having the strangers there, they all were cheering for us and clapping out loud when we got announced that we were husband and wife
My BF also sang for us and we had a random stranger cry out loud at the end and say how beautiful it was.....
This of course depends on you.....if you want random people or not.

there was a guy in speedo who propped himself against a tree and watched our wedding. i so wanted our photog to catch that in a picture because i thought it would have been funny, but she shot around him.
there was also a little girl, about 7, who kept flashing us her butt while we were doing after ceremony shots. again, my photog edited her out! i thought that would have been hysterical to have in our wedding pictures!

I still think that beach weddings are so pretty though. I wish I could have been more laid back about it, but I know myself better than that!
