Things to think about:
Permits – Many of the beaches do not require permits, but keep in mind that it is on a “first come, first served basis”. Check with the city/town for any required permits that you may need to purchase.
Tide Chart - This is a must because you do not want to be swept away!
Inclement Weather – You will want to have a Plan B. There are many beach venues that can accommodate you both outside and inside.
Parking - If you are doing your own planning, this is an important matter to consider.
Older Guests – There are places that are easier than others to accommodate. It is hard for older guests to climb steps and walk a long distance in the sand.
Unity Candle – Unity Candles are not a good idea. Air movement blows them out or blows the candles over. There are other special ceremonies to incorporate such as the sand ceremony, fisherman’s knot, etc.
Sound System – If you provide a sound system, please keep in mind the wind noise.
