Tips for Planning the Perfect Venice Beach Wedding

When it comes to destination weddings, few surpass the beauty and majesty of ceremonies set on a beautiful beach. For those who love oceanside views, Venice Beach is one of the best.

If this is what you want, then get in line! It turns out hundreds of couples get married in Venice every year. With this in mind, the following tips will help you plan the perfect day:

Getting the Basics

Couples can focus on the glamour a little too much when they’re planning their wedding. Planning the perfect wedding starts with the basics. There’s a lot to consider before you start planning things. First, if you’re going to be having a wedding in Venice Beach, you have to figure out how much it’ll be. To have a wedding there, you have to get a permit from L.A. County. This usually costs about $175 if you’re only having 50 people attend. It might be a good idea to figure out if you’re going to have a small or big wedding. You’ll want to make sure your wedding happens when the weather is nice.

Work on the Theme

Weddings are whatever people want them to be, but they shouldn’t just do anything. You don’t want things to look disorganized. Use your destination wedding dream as the jumping-off point. Allow this to give you the theme for your wedding so that you create a cohesive plan. Doing this can help narrow down your choices for things like invitations, making the process less overwhelming. You have many choices for a Venice Beach wedding destination. Options include travel themed wedding invitations as well beach and bohemian themes.

Deal with the Dress Code

You have an idea of how people will look at your wedding. You know how you want to dress, and that’s wonderful, but you’re going to have to make a few adjustments here and there. Again, it’s important not to lose sight that this is a destination wedding, and you’re going to be in Venice Beach. Southern California weather ranges from comfortably cool to scorching, so bulky clothes are not a good idea. The wedding gown should be light along with bridesmaids or groomsmen. Stilettos and high heels will be problematic on the sand unless you’re planning to add a temporary boardwalk. It’s a good idea to figure out the dress code for your guest list so that you can give everyone clear suggestions on what to wear to be as comfortable as possible.

Address Parking

Venice Beach is a public space, and that could present a problem when it comes to parking. With everything going on in your mind, parking is probably not too important to you, but it needs to be. Your guests are going to care about this. If people can’t find parking, it might delay your ceremony. You could talk to a local business near the wedding space to see if they’ll allow your guests to park in their parking lot. You’ll have to pay a significant amount, but at least you’ll know that your guests will have a place to park that’s reserved just for them.

The Restroom Issue

One thing that could mess with your wedding is restroom access. At some point, someone is going to need a restroom. Weddings taking place on the beach might take place far from hotspots where most toilets are. This means your guests will have to walk pretty far to go to the restroom, which isn’t so great. You’ll want to rent a portable restroom for your guests. You know that these places will be close and clean. Renting one of these isn’t usually part of the planning, but you have to think about it since you’re going to Venice Beach.

Now, you’ve got a few tips to help ensure you don’t miss anything while you plan your Venice Beach wedding. It might be a good idea to hire a professional wedding planner in the Venice Beach area so that you can get all the help you need.
