Finding Your Beach Venue

The Essential Guide to Planning a Beach Wedding (1)

What makes a perfect beach wedding venue? Is it that picture-perfect view? There are many places around the world with spectacular beach views, so the trick here is to find one that means something to you, especially if it’s somewhere you’ve been before, or a place with direct flight connections, such as Koh Samui.

Budgeting For Your Beach Venue

The Essential Guide to Planning a Beach Wedding (2)

A budget can make or break a wedding plan, so keep this in mind when planning things out. When preparing your budget for a wedding venue, consider the following points:

  • How much are you willing to spend?
  • Who else is contributing to the wedding budget?
  • What are you willing to compromise on?
  • What time of the year will you get married?
  • What kind of wedding venue do you want?

While each beach wedding is different for couples, these are some of the most common questions that couples should ask themselves. An additional question you might want to ask yourself is if the venue has some packages for a wedding, which may be able to cut down on some of your expenses.
