Beach wedding

A beach wedding cannot be improvised, especially if the organization is planned on a white sand beach. Private beach or public beach, a minimum of preparations is required. For a wedding on a public beach, only the ceremony can be celebrated there, but with prior authorization from the town hall. A word of advice, do it well in advance so as not to end up without any alternative. For a wedding on a private beach, you must request permission and prices from the owner of the place. Depending on the mood, a wedding planner to plan the ceremony and organize the various and varied planned activities, such as jet ski, boat or water ski rental, can be of great help.

Activities to practice during a wedding on the beach

Like any wedding, the activities offered to the guests participate in the success of the latter. Some of them are not specific to the wedding venue (the beach in this case), others are. Let's take a look at these first. Indeed, distractions in harmony with the location of the wedding will enhance the enthusiasm to participate, while being original for some.

Aquatic activities

Getting married on a beach obviously means enjoying a setting like no other, the sand, the sea and the setting sun. In short, a panorama which, if all the conditions are met, can leave you and your guests with unforgettable memories. So, if the weather, weather conditions and tides are right, several activities are available to you. Jet-skiing, paddle boarding, towed buoys, or even parasailing, activities that will require a certain budget. Indeed, the rental of jets-ski or the provision of a boat and its driver for parasailing or buoys (banana type), are not cheap activities. So choose preferably a private beach for your wedding, which also offers this type of service. You can then negotiate in the form of a “package” (beach, dinner and activities).

A firework

Before the wedding cake, on a clear starry night, what could be more exciting than a short fireworks display to immortalize this moment? If the idea excites you, know that municipal authorization is required. Forget the idea of releasing lanterns after dark, though. The reason ? These will fall back into the sea and pollute the latter while being real traps for the fish which will take them for food.

The games of our childhood

Power 4, Pictionnary, Jenga, who never played this during childhood or adolescence? And why not in an XXL version on the beach? Indeed, many companies offer to rent or sell these games in a human-sized version. Installed on the beach, you will be able to entertain your guests who will find their child's soul and can even challenge each other. An ideal way to break the ice between guests who do not know each other.


This is one of the big trends in weddings. While your guests sit enjoying the beach reception, why not entertain them with some pretty sleight of hand. Nothing could be easier, call on a magician who will be happy to entertain your guests. A moment which, again, will arouse wonder in the little ones and a moment of joyful incomprehension and giggles for the older ones.

A tattoo bar

Again very popular, the tattoo bar can also be part of the activity options offered. But let's be clear, these will obviously be ephemeral and mostly minimalist tattoos, an option that follows the current tattoo fad, the latter becoming more and more discreet.

Prepare for the ceremony on the beach

To always be impeccable at the reception, there's nothing like being able to remove the troublesome sand after the activities. Prepare a nice basket well presented and arrange a few AFTER Beach Winter White brushes to allow your guests to remove the annoying grains of sand stuck on the feet before putting on their shoes. Surprise effect guaranteed!
