With hundreds of beach weddings going on up and down the Emerald coast many brides get pushed into very bad times of the day for their beach wedding. Many wedding services will try to tell you that in the afternoon is a great time for a wedding but in fact it is the worst time of day for a beach wedding.

Why. For many reasions first in the summer on the coast all day you will have hundreds of people on the beach walking and sitting all over the place and many people bring beach tents or other beach items. Do you really want you wedding to look like it was at a water park with hundreds of people you do not know all around you? Also people tend to walk behind the wedding as it is going on drinking beer or just lot looking like what you want as part of your wedding photos in the background.

Another down side to having your wedding in the mid morning or afternoon is the heat. In the summer on the beach it is very hot (Pass out Hot) Over the years we have first hand witnessed wedding guests pass out from the heat at beach weddings held at the wrong time of day. It can be so hot that you and all your beach wedding guests will be swetting from the heat. We have seen the bride get so hot she had to run off the beach right after the wedding to get out of the wedding dress and the groom is soaking wet. Wedding guests are all very uncomfortable from the heat. After the wedding your photos will show everyone very wet and unhappy if they even stay for the photos. Also on the beach in the afternoon the sun is very very bright and it hits our white sand and bounces back into your eyes making it very uncomfortable on everyone’s eyes unless they have sun glasses on. Do you want everyone in your photos to have sun glasses on I would think not.

So the best time for a Destin beach wedding or any wedding on the coast is to start one hour before sunset so you wedding is ending as the sun is starting to go down. You will enjoy much cooler weather and our amazing sunset. The beach water looks amazing at sunset and the beach will not be very crowded like it is in the afternoon.

You beach wedding photos will look much better as you can keep your eyes open and you are much cooler feeling great. Your guest will be much happer and look better in the photos as well. After the sun sets and all your wedding photos are done it is then the perfect time for your wedding reception and then dinner making for a all around great beach wedding.

they are the beach wedding cake maker for you. You can only get suggestions from other wedding vendors and everyone has their own taste . All cakes can be pretty , but can they be pretty and taste good too or does it really matter what it taste like as long as it’s pretty.
