Do what makes you happy!  It's okay if it's not on the beach! Your guests will have the rest of their time down there to enjoy the beach! :)

Thanks you gals are the best! I believe I've made my peace with it... it also helps a great deal that I'm doing a TTD session the next day aaand I'll be there for 7 days...so that'll be more than enough sand for me. Plus A7XTrish reminded me,it's only 20 minutes.

    I'm having my ceremony on the rooftop terrace of the Beach Palace. The beauty of the ocean without any sand in my shoes!

      Lucky you! Getting married in a garden was actually my first choice, until I realized that a private villa was NOT in the financial cards!

      I have been going back and forth with this question too. My resort offers at least 3 different locations, so we really don't have to be in the sand.

        Let me list pros and cons since I've been through it and REALLY wanted the wedding on the sand.

         

        Con's:

        * You have lookers that will stop.  In the moment you won't realize they are even there until the man who has no business wearing speedos is in EVER SINGLE SHOT. 

        * You can't wear fabulous shoes

        * You get sand on everything.  When I say everything I mean EVERYTHING

        * The wind will mess up your hair

        * Did I mention SPEEDO?

        * Sun beating on your face - you will squint. It's unavoidable unless you do glasses

         

        Pro:

        It's different then a scene from a venue at home

         

        We went with a fountain setup that had a gazebo my FI and I were under - our bridal party was not.  We were happy too it was the hottest day of the week.  Our pictures came out beautifully and we had the area blocked off.

         

        As a compromise after the wedding we took pictures out on the sand.

        We are getting married in Fiji, and we are not going to have the ceremony on the beach! We are getting married in the tropical forest, and then have the TTD on the beach.

        You're not crazy. It's your wedding, and you decide how and where you want it :)

        I've dreamed about Fiji all my life, and neither me nor my FI wanted a big wedding. We didn't really see the point of using lots of money on something we didn't want, so we arranged a trip around the world, and combine the wedding with the honeymoon... We'll be gone for 1,5 months, and it's our perfect vacation/wedding/honeymoon. There will only be the two of us, with two photographers, a videographer (both from New Zealand) and my makeup artist (local from Fiji).

        We save a lot of money, and the money we do use, is only for the two of us! Gone all out with the best hotels and resorts, and one of the most important thing is the photos and video for our parents and friends (and of course ourselves).

        I'm posting photos when we come back! ... That will be in august ^^ We leave Norway in june... Can't wait!!!
