Sep 4, 2008
Canada is blessed with its natural beauty that makes it a popular destination for couples looking for a place to have a wedding filled with the aura of romance. Canada with its rocky banks, snow-covered mountains and lush green mounts is almost a dream setting for a romantic wedding.

Canada too has some of the most beautiful beaches. Arbutus Cove, Hanlan's Point Beach, Long Point, Wasaga Beach, Jericho Beach and Sunset Beach are just some of the spectacular beaches in Canada. With these beautiful beaches, beach-themed weddings are certainly something to seriously consider.

The gentle breeze on your face as you watch the waves crashing into the sandy beach and the sun setting is a sure way to lift the romantic mood in anyone. Weddings on beaches are not all as relaxing as the atmosphere for careful wedding planning is needed to make it happen and here are some of our tips to for you to follow.

Decide what atmosphere it is that you want to create- formal or informal.

A formal wedding might require you to wear a traditional wedding dress but an informal one allows you the freedom of choosing the dress you like be it sea-inspired prints or colored attire.

Wedding arches are must have décor for weddings however, if you predict that the wind will be very strong, you better do without it. Candles should be skipped altogether for it will not lit up completely in the presence of wind. You can have torches instead of candles but make sure that the strength of the wind is no more than 10 mph.

Wear the proper footwear. Shoes are not advisable to wear if there is no runner, otherwise, shoes will be filled up with sand.

GO for colors that blend in with the environment.

Don't forget to provide chairs for your guests. No one is keen on having to stand around the whole time.

If you're having an evening beach wedding, be sure to have power source available so that your ceremony can be equipped with proper lighting. Having a wedding in the dark will not be thrilling. The pathways should be cleared of all wirings so that accidents can be prevented.

Don't have the wedding in the middle of the day when the Sun is at its mightiest. This is not good for everyone because of the harmful sunrays. You don't want your elderly guests to suffer from sunstroke. Early morning or late afternoons are the best times to hold the wedding. It's good to have a tent or tiki hut standing by for shelter.

There are many beach or sea-inspired wedding favours to give to your guests. You can choose from seahorse and starfish frosted glass coasters, shell-inspired spreaders, candleholders with resin shell base, starfish bath soap, sailboat picture frame, flip flop floating candles to engraved rock paperweight. All these will create fond memories of your wedding in the minds of your guests.

A bride wearing pearl jewelry will always look stunning and elegant. No matter if you're having a formal or informal wedding, pearl can work for any type. Pearl is great for beach wedding because it is sea inspired. Pearl jewelry can match just about any wedding gown too.

Pearl necklaces vary depending on the length. It may be a choker, rope, princess, collar, matinee and opera. A pearl choker is 14-16 inches long. The pearl rope is 40-72 inches or longer. The princess is 17-20 inches which looks good at both plunging and both necklines. The collar is 12 to 13 inches comprising of three stands of pearls at the least. The matinee is 20-25 inches and it looks best on high necklines. For brides who'll get married for the second time, matinee is ideal. The last is opera which is 27-36 inches. This pearl is long enough to reach the waist so it can be wrapped into two strands to create a choker.

Don't just consider pearl necklace as there are pearl earring that you can wear too. You can wear the classic stud pearl earring for the elegant looking gowns and wear dangling ones for the simple gowns.

Thoroughly plan your beach wedding in Canada, select a practical and enduring wedding favor and look fabulous in your pearls.
