Beach Wedding Essentials

Beach weddings are all fun and pretty smiles when you look back at it, but a lot of work goes into making it perfect, and we have a few must dos when it comes to a beach wedding.


When one thinks of a beach wedding, the first idea that pops to mind is a dreamy Maldives island wedding at resorts the likes of Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas. The main rule to follow for the best wedding pictures is, lighting. Natural lighting is what you have to depend on at an outdoor wedding, therefore, time your wedding just right. Also, you can always have lights strung above the wedding if you don’t want to exchange your vows at noon.

Make it fun

People love dressing up for weddings, and that means shoes. But, nobody wants to walk around with sandy footwear, so make it fun for the guests by giving a shoes optional invite.


This is a win at beach weddings unless the winds decide to blow harder during the shoot. Regardless, the pictures almost always end up looking amazing because of the panoramic scenery around.

Table Deco

Be it a canopied event or just plain outdoor beach weddings, the table decorations can amp the whole beach vibe if you choose right.
