I think you’d be better off without it; it kind of reminds one of a tiki bar. The benches and shells on the sand are enough!

ambartlett:  i like just the beach in the background.  We had a structure at our beach wedding but it was only an arch so behind us was the beach.

We’re getting married on the beach without anything. Like not even chairs, but we’re only having about 12 guest. We’re getting married in Hawaii and you can’t have any structures on the beach so we don’t really have a choice. But I think it’d be Pointless for us anyways. Plus the ocean and mountains are good enough!

ambartlett:  I am getting married in Jamaica too at the same place you are (I recognize that structure haha) and I am choosing not to use one. Same reason people said, the beach will be beautiful enough on it’s own!! I would save the few hundred extra dollars and put it towards something else ๐Ÿ™‚

I like it better without. The beach is such a beautiful background! We’re getting married in a park and I don’t think we’ll have any type of structure, just me, Fiance and the officiant. Everyone will probably know which direction to look without a structure guiding their eyes ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’re getting married in Dominican Republic in November. We are having a similar structure, and we chose to add white “veils” on it. It’ll add a softer touch and sway as the wind blows. ๐ŸŒŠ

We were going to get the same structure for our wedding at Sandals Negril last April, but at the last minute we decided to use their gazebo on the beach instead.  We ended up saving a good chunk of money by scrapping the structure on the beach because the gazebo was free, although we did pay for some decorations (curtains, flowers, etc.)  I’m also glad we went with the gazebo because it was very bright out during the wedding and my eyes are super light sensitive so I would have been squinting throughout the whole ceremony.  For our pictures in the sun, they actually had to have me close my eyes and then open them when they counted to three in order to get me with my eyes open!

Can I ask where in Jamaica you are getting married? We’re looking at venues and locations, but we’re still a ways out. Thanks!

BeachBride2015:  I have the same problem, always squinting.  Really considering a beach ceremony but maybe if it’s in the evening it won’t be so bad?

islandtime:  An evening wedding probably wouldn’t be so bad with the squinting from the sun. We were supposed to have an evening wedding, but because of the weather patterns bringing in evening rain for the days leading up to our wedding we ended up moving up the time of the wedding to late morning just the day before the wedding!

We are doing a ring of flowers in the sand and that’s it!

I saw a wedding on the beach once and it was extremely breezy. I don’t know what those strings of things are made of, but if it’s breezy/windy, they could be quite distracting. If they’re shells I think it could get quite noisy – think dozens of wind chimes.
