    OMG I Would die for that beach!  We are also planning on being at the beach, only beach side.  Have you considered trying to find a holiday house with a private beach, and have the ceremoney/reception in the grounds on the grass between house and beach? 

    I like the idea of private beach because then you won’t get randoms in the photos. 

    Also now that I think of it and see the pics, is that on the western side of Tassie?  If so, I can only imagine how beautiful sunsets could enhance the day…

    we had a beach wedding and absolutely loved it.  it was what we wanted from the start and it was amazingly easy.  

    we had limos for our guests that picked them up from the hotel, drove them to the beach ceremony, and then drove them back to the hotel area for the reception.  Everyone really enjoyed it.

    As for tips, don’t wear heels on the beach, no good comes from that 🙂 Also, let your guests know ahead of time so they can dress appropriately and not have dresses they have to hold down or hard to remove shoes.  Visit the day before to make sure you have the best spot for standing and pictures and everyone knows which way you’ll be facing.  It usually gets very windy by beaches so when we went the day before, we realized that i would need to stand on the other side of Darling Husband so the wind wasn’t in my hair the entire time.  If you don’t have a beach front property that you are renting, you may want to look into having some friends/friends kids stake out the spot for you.  my younger sisters friends were more than happy to spend the day at the beach in that spot and they left when everyone was getting dropped off.  worked out great and we probably didn’t need them to do that, but they were more than happy to help.

    here was our beach wedding:

    Biggest PRO: beautiful scenery does not require much decor.  Here was our simple beach wedding decor.


    Biggest CON: The wind. It was really annoying blowing my hair/veil around.  However it DID make for nice photos with the veil afterwards.
