Opinions & Advice needed - Beach wind

Recommended Posts

Hi -


I am having my rehearsal dinner right on the beach (on the sand) at sunset in April. All my guests are invited (45-50 people) for a 3 course meal with open bar for 3 hours. I'm hiring a fire dancer to surprise everyone. I think this will be a cool thing that most of our guests will remember.


Second I want to do a slideshow of FI & me growing up and our families/friends. A lot of ppl do this during the reception but I just want ppl to party during the reception so I'm doing speeches & slideshows at the rehearsal dinner.


My wedding coordinator said they don't usually recommend it because of the wind. She told me they'll do it if I want to and they'll figure something out.


Has anyone had a slideshow at their beach wedding? or have you been to one where they've done it? Has wind been a problem? I really, really want to do this but I want to know if wind will really be a problem.

I know what happens to umbrellas in the wind. I think it would be difficult to do a slide projector set up in the wind. Also, what about the lighting during the day? Usually you need to dim the lights to be able to see what is projected. If it is still daylight I think the light and the wind are going to be factors on a good slide show.


I love the idea though. We are doing ours at the AHR.


Maybe some other folks will be able to share better success stories!

I have seen instances of projectors set up on the beach for karaoke purposes, so I'm sure you can have a slideshow too. The wind makes it harder to hear though...


Perhaps you can choose 2 sites and once you get there (assuming you arrive a day before the rehearsal dinner) you can see if you think it's still practical/preferable to have your dinner on the beach? If not, you have your plan B?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
