Bayside elopements and backyard beach weddings in melbourne

So, you have your mind set on a wedding with all of the coastal vibes: sandy beach and the sound of the waves as you say your vows with your family and friends on your wedding day. Here are a few things for you to consider while planning your epic day:

  1. Double check the permits and regulations, each council will have their own permit and reservation process:

  2. Melbourne weddings and the weather: Always have a plan B in case it rains and remember to have a little bit of shade if you have any elderly guests. You can also have water in an ice bucket for the guests.




  3. Provide clear instructions to the guests on how to arrive to the ceremony point and consider how far the parking area is from the ceremony. Keep in mind amenities (toilets) and access for disable people.

  4. Double check with your celebrant if they have a sound system, don’t take this for granted and make sure that you let them know about your plans.

  5. Remember that The melbourne coast can get windy, so maybe look for options to have your hair up to be more comfortable on your day

  6. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, it would be wise to avoid hills for the ceremony and you can put them on when you get to the reception or choose to wear sandals on your day.

  7. Styling your partner for a coastal wedding: Keep in mind that the beach and coastal vibes go hand in hand with light colors for your partners attire and also for the relaxed and smart casual kind of attire, so avoid black on the day.

  8. Melbourne Coastal wedding styling and renting props for your day. This will give a boost to your day. If you are considering renting Arbours or furniture for your wedding that is on trend, then visit the guys from On Trend Event.
