California is a beautiful state bordered by the Pacific Ocean, which serves as a gorgeous backdrop for all types
of activities and events year round. The smell of salt water, a soft wind blowing, and sand between your toes as
you sit listening to the waves rolling in. Absolutely rejuvenating yet relaxing all at once. Even if you’re
surrounded by people, you’re having a unique experience all your own that will remain with you forever. This is one

a recent web site visitor:-
I see that 'Steps to Get Married' is recommending beach weddings. This is a good
idea. Let me tell you of my wedding.
As a little girl, I loved the beach. I loved sitting on the beach just staring
out at the ocean. I found it to be incredibly serene and powerful. I always imagined myself getting married on the
beach. From the time I was 10 years old, I was determined that someday I would be having a beach wedding. I carried
that idea with me all the way through my college years. So, when my boyfriend slipped a ring on my finger, my mind
was already thinking ahead to how I was finally going to have my dream beach wedding.
My fiancé wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea of a beach wedding. The closest
beach to our hometown was three hours away. While I realized that having a beach wedding would mean it was limiting
the number of guests that would actually attend, I was still determined. After debating for several months on
setting a date, he was still not thrilled. However, since he knew that it would make me happy, he caved in. I was
celebrating - my beach wedding would finally take place!
I found a lovely inn that was located directly on the beach. In order to have my
wedding there, it was required that I reserve all of the guests rooms for the weekend. That wasn't very cheap but
we were in love with the little inn, so we agreed.
I was assigned a wedding coordinator who was more than happy to take control of
my beach wedding plans. She began to go over lots of details with me that I had never thought about when it came to
exchanging my vows on the sand.
She said that I really should get married in the morning because of the position
of the sun. No one wanted photos taken with everyone squinting and the sun being in our eyes the entire time. Or,
she said that it would have to be late evening since I had chosen the summer to get married. In the late evening,
the sun wouldn't be much of an issue either. While I knew that there is usually always a breeze at the beach, I had
not thought about that in regards to how it would affect a beach wedding. I hadn't thought about my hair blowing or
my dress not staying in one place. I hadn't thought about the sand blowing around either.
Because of all of the factors that had been brought to my attention, I had to
adjust my thoughts on buying a dress and how I'd wear my hair. I bought a dress that was a bit more form fitting
and didn't have a long train. I opted to not wear a veil and wore my hair in an elegant bun. I chose to not
decorate the chairs with flowers and ribbons, but decorated the inside reception instead. I made everything taking
place on the beach very simply and hassle-free.
Our wedding turned out to be absolutely perfect. If you're planning a beach
wedding, make sure to plan accordingly. You may have to adjust some of your plans in order to make things as simple
and perfect as possible. Trust me though, it is worth it.
