@daisy-chain:  Could you not have the wedding in your reception area?

Or I am sure if this is a sponsored venue, they have other arrangements on the beach for rain — like tarps or canvas or something?

I guess it depends how hard it normally rains there.

If its just a light sprinkle, you could use umbrellas, and it would make for some super cute pictures. You could also use large stand umbrellas [like the ones for patio tables, although they are costly], to cover a more chairs at once.

Is there any way to you’d be able to pop up a tent? Since its just for the ceremony you shouldn’t need a gigantic tent, and you can hold it down with cement bricks [unless it gets totally windy].

Do you have a wedding planner or a contact at the reception venue? I would get in touch with them and develop a contingency plan in case of rain (like, if it is raining on the morning they can set up seating for a ceremony).

I planned everything inside for mine (getting married in Australian winter, in Melbourne where the weather is notoriously unpredictable) but my plan for photos/getting in and out of cars is just to bring a bucketload of umbrellas.
