Start planning early – You’ll want to give your guests’ at least six months notice to make travel arrangements and schedule vacation time. And many prime dates (July 4, Christmas, etc) and sites (on the beach at sunset) get booked early. Make sure you know all of the routes to the wedding location, and be sure you provide directions from nearby airports and train stations.
Timing and Weather – It may seem obvious, but make sure you select a month with the most consistent, good weather.
Choose your site, and then choose attire – Be sure to let your guests know about appropriate attire, for both your tastes and the environment. If elegantly relaxed, but not too casual is your desire, tip guests off and include the dress code on the invitation. Don’t wear an elaborate wedding dress – keep it simple. If you wear a veil, make sure it’s got something to hold it down in a beachside breeze. The groom can wear a white dinner jacket or even khakis and a blazer.
Lastly, don’t forget the sunscreen! You want that healthy glow to be your happiness, not sunburn.
