@sunkissed19:  We got married a few weeks ago on the beach and our reception was on the beach too, we had water for everyone before the ceremony and the reception was under a pavillion type thing with overhead fans. While it was hot, everyone was wearing appropriate clothes (shorts, sundresses, etc.) so they were a lot better off than us, but DH and I were pretty uncomfortable. I think you will be ok, but for the cocktail hour, people might burn if they are just in the sun the whole time.

I would say, make it clear to men that they’re not expected to wear suits and have cold water and lemonade for everyone.

closer to 7 pm it shouldn’t too hot to have a cocktail reception outside

where in the beach?

There will almost always be a nice breeze by the beach.

Besides water, you could have a basket with a few parasols for the use of your guests.

I probably would move the cocktail hour inside. Those guests who want to be outside can always carry a drink out on the pier.
