Avoid a Wind Blown Beach Ceremony

08 Jun
June 8, 2012

Getting married on the beach makes for a grand ceremony. It’s a beautiful backdrop, and it’ll save you a few bucks on the venue. But with that being said, being married on the beach isn’t quite the same as getting married in the church. We’ve already discussed the dangers of losing your wedding ring in the sand previously. Now we want to mention one of the more prominent features of the Outer Banks.

Any Way You Want It

When getting married on the beach, take into consideration the direction of the wind. Tradition says that the bride should stand on the left and the groom on the right, but if the wind is blowing the bride’s hair into her face and her vail is slapping the groom’s face, there will be no good pictures during the ceremony! The answer – switch sides! It really is okay! After all, you have already broken “tradition” by getting married on the beach – the place where YOU wanted to be married.

Tradition is grand, but awesome wedding photos are more important than which side your standing on. And there’s not much you can do about the wind. It’s what brought the Wright Brothers here, and is a constant part of life on the Outer Banks, so you learn to cope with it. Besides, a nice breeze will keep you and your guests cool, and make for a pleasant ceremony!

Ring In A Box, Not In The Sand – Important OBX Ceremony Tip

24 May
May 24, 2012

Having your ceremony on the beach makes for a beautiful wedding. There are few more romantic settings than the seaside. while you may have everything scheduled and planned out, make sure you take the little things into account so you don’t have any accidental blunders on your big day. Believe it or not, one of the biggest things you need to watch out for is your wedding ring!

A Ring On Your Finger

If you are getting married on the beach, always leave your rings in their boxes until you are putting them on your finger. Another officiant told me about an incident during the ceremony when the groomsmen and best man decided to get a little cute during the ceremony passing the bride’s ring down the line. Unfortunately, the ring got dropped into the sand on the beach and took almost 20 Pokies minutes to find, upsetting the bride. Another time, the best man was just taking the ring out of his pocket and dropped it in the sand. The lesson learned: If you are getting married on the beach, either leave the rings in their boxes or bring a metal detector to the ceremony.

OBX Wedding Officiant

It can help to have some local wedding vendors on hand to see you through the big day. There are few unique situations that someone hasn’t seen before, and having that know how on your side can save you from any embarrassing mishaps.
