If you’re looking for the most impressive of wedding ideas, a beach wedding is hard to beat; not only is it the best way to escape from the usual stress associated with wedding planning, but if you choose a luxury beach resort, you can also benefit from specialist help – meaning most of the arrangements are taken care of by someone else! We’ve been catering for beach weddings here at the Columbia Beach Resort for many years, so here are our tips for ensuring a magical day for you and your guests.
First of all, you want to think about the location; choosing a beach wedding doesn’t necessarily mean you have to take your vows on the beach itself – in fact, some people are averse to the idea because of the sand. However, you can still make the most of the sunshine and an outdoor ceremony by choosing a garden setting which uses the beach as a backdrop. This gives you the best of both worlds, as well as providing a gorgeous setting for your photographs.
Any beach resort worth its weight will have a professional wedding team who can help you with the legalities and finer details. Living hundreds or thousands of miles away from your wedding location can cause a great deal of worry – but if you’ve got an expert to deal with wedding licenses, organising the celebrant and dealing with the catering and entertainment arrangements, you can literally just call the shots over the phone or by email and leave all of the hard work to someone else. All too often weddings are marred by the stress of having to plan and implement all of the many different elements required, so by choosing a beach wedding in a luxury hotel like the Columbia Beach Resort, you can wash your hands of the hassle and just turn up and enjoy your day!
We also recommend thinking about the time of day you want the ceremony to be held. Older people and children can often struggle in the heat, and with summer temperatures here in Cyprus being particularly high, you may be better off choosing a mid-morning or late afternoon slot. Of course, you always have the option to hold your beach wedding in the low season- which could also be cheaper for you and your guests in terms of flights and room rates.
If you’re not sure whether or not a beach wedding is right for you, the staff at our beach resort are always happy to listen to your questions and provide as much help and information as possible to help you make a decision. You can contact the Columbia Beach Resort here or browse our website for more information regarding our services and facilities and the offers available for your beach wedding.
