    I love the “just beach” option but maybe since you are having your recpetion on the beach and your FI wants it to be in a “church,” you should comporomise and have it in the chapel?

    Personally, I like the the gazebo on the beach.  Honestly, it’s yours and your FH’s wedding, unless his family is making a financial contribution, I’d do what you two are most comfortable with.

    I love the church and the dock. But with thr church, maybe just stand where the people in the picture are.. it is a wonderful backdrop and that way you are still outside on the beach. at the end of the pier might be loud if there is wind and microphones involved.. everyone might not be able to hear.. but then again you would be far away from any sun bathing old men in speedos out there! It amazes me when people don’t give you space on a beach during a wedding. (I was at one in Jamaica and people kept walking in behind the arch, along the water during the ceremony!!!)

    They do a great job with decorating the locations! I am not a arch lover either… the circle is cool… I wonder if that is an option for out on the pier too.

    I like the pier option.  It’s different than doing a standard “on the beach” wedding and I love the view.

    Ooooh, I so agree with RedeemedRebekah. 

    The chapel is gorgeous & a nice compromise would be to use the front steps of the chapel as your altar.  This way you have the beach as well as the church and everyone ought to be pleased.  Plus that would negate the skinny aisle inside.  πŸ™‚ 

    ETA – whatever you choose, they are all gorgeous locales!  Keep us posted!

    I voted for on the beach because the trees & the backdrop are lovely! My second choice would be the pier… it’s a unique & awesome spot to get married! The chapel is adorable too! Man, I get why its such a hard choice for you. πŸ™‚

    I would stay away from the gazebo because it seems like thats where every destination wedding has their ceremony…

    I voted for “just beach” but I really like the pier too. The water is such an intense color that it would be gorgeous to have that as your backdrop.

    I love the pier and the gazebo on the beach. I see what you mean with the pier though….the thatch roof sticks out a lot. But still think it would be really beautiful right on the water like that!

    See, I’m a sucker.  I would probably end up doing the church ceremony to please his parents.  I just don’t want to go into the wedding with bad blood.  But I really like the 2nd and 4th options.  Its so tough because you don’t want to offend anyone but you want what you want on your wedding day.  I think if you talk to his parents, or have your FI talk to his parents, maybe there can be some kind of compromise?  Like if you have the wedding outdoors, maybe you can be sure to incorporate more religious aspects than you had originally planned.  Good luck!  Tell us what you decide πŸ™‚
