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!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
