5 Tips for your destination Wedding by the Beach
Beauty & Styling
Bridal makeup and hairstyle
The weather in the Caribbean is hot and humid, even in winter so we recommend you use a natural make up to highlight your best features and think about an updo hairstyle to avoid frizz.
Bridal gown and groom’s attire
Choose the dress wisely, go for lighter and fresh fabrics, avoid the big ballroom, princess dresses because you could be uncomfortable.
The groom doesn’t necessarily need to wear a suit, if you want an elegant wedding choose light color suits like ivory, light gray, beige or if you are having a more laid-back event he could wear just the vest or perhaps a linen shirt (guayabera with cotton or linen pants.
If your wedding is by the beach, don’t wear high heels or because the heel will get stuck in the sand. Choose a cute and comfy pair of sandals or even barefoot with a lovely piece of foot jewelry.
Give useful welcome bags
Welcome bags are a great way to say “thank ou” to all the people who traveled to be with you on your special day, but what to include? Think about what you and your guests might use before or after the big event and sometimes they forget to pack like bug spray, sunblock, lip balm, hang over kit with aspirin, maybe a powder Gatorade, pepto-bismol, alka-setzer, band aids, gum, Mexican candies, mini bottles of tequila or mini hot sauce bottles, sunglasses, hand fan, flip flops, map of the area, a list of thiNgs to do or tours, welcome letter, wedding program and anything you could think of that may be handy or fun for you guests.
Consider making a seating plan and assign if not every seat, perhaps the table where your guests will seat otherwise it may be chaos at the beginning of the reception when they try to figure out what table they need to go and who are they going to be seated with.
