While most people know we’re the perfect spot for your next Laguna Beach vacation, not many know that we’re also the perfect place for a wedding on the beach. Have you and your special someone wondered what it would be like to get hitched with a bright sunny sky above you, an ocean breeze around you, and sand under your feet? Sounds more interesting than being stuck inside an old church, doesn’t it? And if you thought this kind of thing only happens in the movies, in California, we can make it happen.
So how do you plan for a wedding on the beach? First, call the city of Laguna Beach at (949) 497-0716 and tell them that you want to setup a wedding on the sand. Next, call us at (949) 461-1497 to arrange for accommodations and your wedding reception on our viewing deck. You can then call a wedding planner in Laguna Beach who’s done these before to take care of the details. Here are a few final things you should consider while making your plans…
This may seem obvious, but make sure your guests know that by “wedding on the beach” you mean “on the sand” so they can prepare accordingly. Tell them to bring sun glasses, hats, or visors. Squinting if the sun happens to be in their eyes during the ceremony is very uncomfortable and distracting. Also tell them that you will have a shoe valet that they can leave their dress shoes with in exchange for flip-flops, and that the valet will have a de-sanding station (soft bristled paint brushes) for when they need to put their shoes back on. If your wedding is in the warmer months, be sure to have bottled water available. If it’s the middle of winter, you’re probably okay, but who has a beach wedding in the middle of winter?
We hope to see you on your special day, and your next Laguna Beach vacation.
