If you are planning on having a beach wedding then you should really consider holding it at a private resort, otherwise there may be local laws that impact holding a ceremony on a public beach. As the comfort of the wedding party and the guests is very important, that is further impetus for holding Tampa beach weddings in a private resort. As the weather may not be in the couples favor on the day, a nearby alternative is available, if the day is beautiful and wedding proceeds as planned, the guests can stay shaded in the resort until it is time to join the couple for their marriage.
Tampa beach weddings can be a simple or elegant as the couple wants; the fact that the ceremony is being held on the beach rather than in a building has little or no impact on this. Although this is true, many people who decide on a beach wedding make it an informal affair, suggesting to the invited guests that they should dress casual even to the point of wearing slippers as they make walking in sand much easier and safer.
If the wedding is held on a public beach there may be concern over rules and regulations that impact the couple’s thoughts. If the day is to be capped off with a luau with open fires, this may not be acceptable. These problems do not exist when the wedding is held on a private beach within a resort, any special requirements are all part of the services that you can ask for and get.
The major problems are the unseen issues which are weather related. If the day is miserable; overcast and rainy, the wedding venue will obviously have to change. When the wedding has been planned in a resort, if this should happen there is always a back-up plan available. As a matter of fact, this will be an integral part of the whole planning process.
In many cases the couple will want to also have the reception on the beach, this will mean that the set-up will need protection for the guests from the sun and wind. Many resorts will erect a large canopy on the beach where the reception can be held out of the elements, the area can also be provided with electricity for a sound system for when the dancing starts.
