Be Flexible

Always have a back-up plan in place for whatever she throws your way. Mother Nature works in mysterious ways so you don’t feel compelled to organize the day on a time schedule; if you need to be on a rain delay for a couple of hours, the rest of the day can still proceed as planned.

Work with the Known

Work with a bridal consultant who specializes in beach weddings or a wedding planner in the area where you’ll be assisted in particular beach’s requirements. Planners also serve as expert eyes for finding and overseeing local vendors.
