Maldives Wedding

If your plan for your big day involves sand, water, and sun, you have already agreed to make a remarkable difference. There are some special aspects to focus on when you are planning a beach wedding.

Attire considerations

If it’s a beach wedding, you should say no to heels. You may wear sandals, wedges or even choose to remain barefooted. About the dress, be mindful when you are selecting the material of your dress. It should make you comfortable.

Dress codes for guests

Let the guests know in advance that it’d be a beach wedding. If you are giving away invitation cards, you may also mention the dress code as casual or semi-formal.

The setting

Hotels such as Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa offer the perfect settings for beach weddings in Malaysia. Since there’s enough space, the wedding planner can even include fun games and activities to do during the ceremony.

The preparations
