As seasoned wedding event planners well versed in curating magical celebrations, we understand a couple’s desire to choose coastal wedding venues around Massachusetts. But working by the sea or on the beach presents challenges, from navigating tidal shifts to ensuring guest comfort amidst shoreline winds. However, these environmental factors are nothing to fear if the proper planning and talented team are in place!

Join us as we explore the logistical considerations and details contributing to the seamless execution of waterfront weddings.

Beach Weddings: Navigating Tides and Shorelines

When selecting a beach as your venue for your special day, a savvy wedding planner will research the local climate, tidal patterns, and the particulars of the desired beach location; this will help couples select the best times of day to exchange vows and celebrate amidst the shoreline’s natural beauty.

Securing Permits and Accommodating Guests

The logistical requirements of beach weddings often entail securing permits for hosting events on public shorelines. Additionally, accommodating guests’ needs, such as providing clear instructions for beach access and offering amenities like complimentary sunscreen and hydration stations, helps the overall guest experience be as pleasant as possible and fosters a sense of comfort and convenience.

Ensuring guest comfort is paramount at any type of ceremony, but it holds particularly true for beach weddings. Providing your guests with options for temporary shade and beach-centric amenities like flip-flops for sandy ceremonies, complimentary sunglasses, and refreshing liquids are thoughtful touches that enhance the enjoyment of your seaside celebration. Moreover, staging temporary shade for musicians is also necessary so that band members can play in comfort without risking sun-related illness. 

The sand is the focal point of a beach wedding, and working with sand is non-negotiable. Planning the seating at beach weddings almost always calls for innovative furniture solutions that can be planted firmly in the soft terrain. For example, opting for benches over traditional chairs ensures stability while adding a touch of charm to the coastal ambiance.
