Today I will share with you how we prepare for each of our beach weddings. From start to finnish. Here we go:
Two weeks before the wedding one of our coordinators (Annely, Me or Janet) will call you to go over the last details of the beach wedding. At this time we will finalize colors, number of chairs, and flow of the ceremony. We will also let you know what time to show up and what to bring. All last minute questions will be answered at this time (obviously you can still call us if you have more questions, but main things will be ironed out at this time).
The day before the wedding our staff loads the car with all decorations, checks the music, and goes over final details with all the vendors involved (usually photographer, officiate, coordinator and set up person).
On the actual wedding day we show up about 2 hours before the start of ceremony. Chairs and arbor go up first, followed by chairs sashes, sand ceremony table, aisle way decore and shoes basket. Raking of the sand is done last.
Sometimes our kiddos come to assist 🙂
When everything is ready and looking gorgeous, our photographers (Mayya, Edina or Ivana) take few shots of the set up.
At this point guests are staring to show up and the show begins….. Here is post about what happens during the actual ceremony.
After the last pictures has been taken and all guest are gone, we start the tear down. Everything is loaded back to the car and we are on our way home. Tired but happy for another successful event.
The next day linens and bamboo arbor chiffon gets washed and prepped for the next beach wedding.
And so it begins all over again…….
Now you know what happens not just during the ceremony but before and after 🙂
