When people think of a Naples, Florida Destination Wedding, the first thing that comes to mind is the beach. What many people don’t know is that a large majority of brides and grooms choose to skip the beach wedding. Yes, it looks perfectly romantic in the movies and on the cover of the latest wedding magazine, but the logistics of a beach wedding can be extremely tricky. Not to mention costly.
Is a beach wedding a good idea? Here’s a few reasons why you might want to reconsider:
Privacy: Be wary of anyone advertising a private beach wedding. This is a hotly contested subject, but essentially all ocean beachfront is public property. You may be sharing your wedding location with tourists and locals.
Permitting: Remember to research any needed permits and ordinances. Regulations vary by location, so you will need to check locally, but there may be size limitations. Even a small intimate beach wedding will require a permit.
Expectations: It’s important to have a realistic expectation of the beach experience. The wind and waves will make it hard to hear the ceremony, the weather will affect your hair, and sand will get everywhere.
