7 Tips For Your Bahamas Wedding On The Beach
- If you are renting folding chairs be sure and get either plastic or wooden chairs. As metal chairs will get extremely hot in the sun and you do not want to risk burning your guests.
- Be sure to schedule your wedding early in the day or late afternoon to avoid the afternoon heat. A 3:00 pm or 4:00 pm start time is good for the afternoon
- You should always provide some shade with tent, patio umbrellas, beach umbrellas or parasols. As there is always the likelihood of a passing shower
- Get fans, as give away wedding favors. And you can even decide to order paper fans with your monogram or wedding program printed.
- Rent outdoor fans and put them on a low setting to keep the noise level down.
- Provide water or other beverage when guests arrive. But be sure to stay away from alcoholic drinks as they tend to cause dehydration.
- Be sure and have an air conditioned room nearby where guests can retreat if the heat becomes too much for them. Not everyone can handle the brisk Bahamas sunshine.
