On the Beach Reception??
Posted 05 May 2009 - 05:08 PM
1. it's not a popular option for brides on here (from what I've seen at least!)
2. it's not something offered at a ton of places (also from what I've seen)
I just love they way they look, I'm not sure if it's practical though! I wanted to see if the places you picked offered it and/or why you chose or didn't choose it!
Thanks in advance for the help/insight

2)The windy like someone else had said. 3) You have to pay more for thing i.e. a dance floor maybe moe lighting if you don't like what they already have. Do get me wrong I have seen some very pretty Beach Receptions, but it just wasn't for me.

Honestly, so many things could go wrong during the day that I am not the least bit concerned...and looking very much forward to our beach wedding

Most resorts offer beach receptions (or will bend if you ask), but of course, will attach a 'nominal fee' to it. I think mostly due to the extra lighting and setup they would have to do.
I lucked out and had my reception on the night my resort had its beach party, so lighting was already set up and since we had less than 25 people, we were able to be moved far away from the beach party but still close enough to take part in it (if that makes any sense,lol) + we had our own security guards (which were standing in the distance). I also used some paper luminaries I bought from home that the coordinator used as decorations to line the walkway to our table. After the reception dinner, we just joined in the beach party festivities and pretty much partied all night long!
The only thing, I don't have many pics of the reception setup, b/c we only booked our photographer for so long + it was really dark. So keep that in mind as well.

1. there were a lo tof mosquitoes at night and
2. we wanted a dancefloor
3. walking around in my dress on the beach would annoy me all night long.
So we had a beach ceremony and then did our cocktail hour and reception on land.
