Hawaii Beach Wedding


Planning a beach weddings doesn't have to cost you the earth nowadays - You can go to your dream beach location for less than $10,000. Here I share some of my best tips for keeping the costs down when planning a beach wedding that won't make your day any less romantic.
1. A ceremony can be as simple as you, your man, an arch and just a few guests on the day. Or it can be just the 2 of you. Beach weddings are great in that they can be as 'relaxed' and informal as you both want them to be.
2. You've got the opportunity to go barefoot when planning a beach wedding. Just make sure you bring towels with you to wipe your feet, though! This is the route my good friend Amy went with -- She had these little feet jewelery that were simply painted on, on the day. They really were beautiful. Another option worth trying is to use simple ankle bracelets.
3. The beach wedding favors you choose can just be simple, or you can save cash and forget them altogether on the day -- They're really not essential, girls.
4. Start to get creative! Get your girl friends 'round to the house and make your own beach wedding invitations, name cards, table plans, cake, music etc. Here's a tip: why not make a list of your fav. wedding songs and put them on a blank CD? This is a nice personal touch.
5. Planning a beach wedding with flowers? To be honest, this can be really expensive, depending on what time of year when you plan to get married in. The good thing is, you don't really need many flowers at the beach though. So my advice is to have something simple like a small bouquet for just you and your bridesmaids.
