Beach Ceremony - noisy or too public?

Recommended Posts

Very nice choice Sherry. I'm like you in that I knew I would be stressing about the unknown. The Marriot is quite close to the Seawatch anyhow, so I'm sure it will be just gorgeous!

We tried to book our ceremony at the Seawatch, because we'd already booked our reception there, but unfortunately, we'd waited too long, and it was all booked up already for the ceremony. Our wedding coordinator recommended a few other spots, including the Wailea Marriott, and we decided to go with it. The pictures they sent us look really pretty, and we will still have the water as our backdrop, so it seemed like a good compromise.

We switched from the beach too. All along I really wanted a beach ceremony, but would not have been OK with a hoard of people around watching and being in the background of my wedding pics. Our ceremony will be in the gazebo, and we'll take pictures on the beach afterward and that was a good compromise for me.

Don't listen to the naysayers.

Have your wedding where you want it. Of course there will be wind, it's the beach, and ocean waves, too, but don't let it deter you... it comes with the territory!


I think that is the whole point of going to the Caribbean or Hawaii to get married... to wed on the beach! So do it however you want! :)


Don't let people bring you down. It's your day. Do it how you want!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
