Beach-friendly Decor

The most fun part about planning an Indian beach wedding is selecting the decor that compliments your style as a couple. Lanterns, seashells, anchors, driftwood, starfish, sea-glass are all ocean-inspired elements that you can use for the beach wedding decor, but by no means are you limited to this theme. We can decorate in any style to reflect your personality, such as bold or chic or rustic. Having a beach wedding doesn’t mean you’re stuck with beach-themed decorations (unless you want to be!)

Luckily, with a beach ceremony, your backdrop is the ocean, and according to Delta Airlines survey Cancun was voted number 1 wedding destination so you can get away with a lot fewer details and furnishings. As a wedding stylist, we plan around your personal aesthetic. With a seaside affair, we also consider weather factors like the breeze; we ensure that lighter decorations are properly weighted down so you never have to worry about items blowing away.

Indian Beach Wedding Attire

Choosing beach Indian wedding attire can get tricky.

Here’s a quick guide for the couple and their guests that will help them

to decode their outfits for a beach wedding:

Indian Beach Wedding Outfits for the Couple

  • Wind – Consider how a breeze will make your outfit and hair blow around and ensure that however you style your hair and whatever style of garment you wear, it’s able to withstand the wind.
  • Head & Humidity – Breathable fabrics are best for a hot day outside, such as georgette, chiffon, crepe, organza or linen which will keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Shifty Ground – Although dress shoes and heels will work fine during an indoor, rooftop or patio reception, they might not be the best choice for a ceremony on the sand. During the sand portion of the event, consider sandals, Khussa or Jutti Mojari shoes. The bride can choose to wear lehengas and sarees with light embellishments. Whereas, the groom can go for a light colored a sherwani and to not forget to wear a 100% cotton underwear. Just ensure the fabric is a fit for the outdoor environment.

Choosing a Dress Code for Guests

Mentioning dress code on the wedding invitation is usually encouraged as it lets the guests know exactly what to expect and wear to your wedding. It’s important to tell them that part of the event will be held on the beach, so there are no surprises.

Select a dress code for your guests depending on the climate and how formal the event is. Weather at the beach can get sticky and humid, keeping that in mind, choose a light-weight and light fabric dress code for your guests that makes them feel comfortable sitting outside potentially in the hot sun or in the wind. Suggest or provide comfortable sandals or loafers as shoes.

Pros & Cons of Getting Married on the Beach

There are various reasons that a couple desires to host a beach wedding, it could be subjective or personal- maybe the sea holds some sentimental value for you and your fiance. But, there are a few pros and cons of planning a beach wedding that you must check out.

Pros

  • Spectacular view of the ocean- Even if it’s cloudy on the day of your wedding, the open water will always look romantic and dreamy.
  • A relaxed beginning to your new life- Planning a wedding can get really stressful, but the ocean breeze will calm you down, especially when you exchange vows with your beloved. It will all be worth it!
  • You don’t need heels- Without a solid platform to walk on, wearing heels is not the right choice. You can use your beach wedding as a perfect excuse to wear comfortable shoes or no footwear at all.

Cons

  • Lack of privacy- Mexican beaches are a federal property, therefore they are considered public, onlookers might distract you from your ceremony or wind up in photos. Fortunately, as your Destination Management Company, we will do our best to keep away all those curious people during your wedding time.
  • Weather is unpredictable- Depending upon the climate, there could be tropical storms, heavy winds and squalls. Even a normal sunny day could be uncomfortably hot for you and your guests if you don’t plan around it. Don’t worry though; Latin Asia has ways around this. First off, our destination of Cancun and Riviera Maya is typically very comfortable most of the year. Second, if it’s a warmer time of year, we can always plan an earlier ceremony to avoid the hottest part of the day. And in case of rain we always have a plan B.
  • Sand – Obviously if you’re getting married on the beach, you’re going to get sand on your feet and clothes, but you already knew that! Luckily, it brushes off quickly and easily, so this shouldn’t be a deterrent.

Seasonal & Travel Considerations

There are various factors that you need to consider while planning an Indian beach wedding. The two most crucial things that you must take into account are your travel plans and the season during which you are planning to conduct your dream wedding. First and foremost, avoid planning wedding dates that coincide with heavy travel days, for instance, during Christmas, Spring break, Winter holidays or New Years. This would make it difficult and expensive for guests to get a plane ticket. Secondly, choose an appropriate season so that the temperature is tolerable and comfortable for guests to sit on the beach during your wedding ceremony.
