Weddings are the result of years and years of hard work, planning, and enthusiasm put together. It is everyone’s ultimate dream to have the perfect wedding. If a dreamy wedding by the sea is what you have in mind, here is a checklist for beach weddings to make it easy for you.

First things first!

If you’re planning a beach wedding, choose a theme that suits a beach vibe. Essentials first, get your wedding rings, vows, outfits, and the guest list ready. The outfits must match the wedding theme, of course! These require much time to finalize, so plan well in advance. Make sure both the bride and groom are on the same page about the final decision to avoid any hassle!

The venue is everything!

A wedding will never look right in the wrong place. If you want the perfect beach wedding in Malaysia, resort such as Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa would be a great option to consider. With the breathtaking ocean views and the summer vibes, along with the right decorations in place, the chosen venue will look out of this world. It is important to make sure to decorate the venue while sticking to your wedding theme.

Wedding Vendors

If the food, music, lighting, and decorations are to be outsourced, find the best and the most reasonably priced vendors for you. The vendors play a major role in a wedding by carrying out their delegated tasks so that you don’t have to worry about it. As a final note, do not forget to adhere to the COVID-19 regulations while planning the wedding and on the wedding day!

Legalities of the Wedding

You should know that for non-residents, a wedding here will not be legally binding. Because of this, many couples opt to get legally married in their home country and celebrate it with a symbolic ceremony here or vice versa. When it comes to a renewal of vows, Maldives is an ideal destination for it too and you will not need any legal documentation for such ceremonies either.

Resort & Location

Be it for a wedding or a renewal of vows, choosing the right private island resort is important. Ideal options include properties like Kandolhu Maldives that provide sublime coastal backdrops, bespoke planning and the services of a wedding coordinator. For the ceremony location, a secluded beach is always a popular option, though you can even consider a private yacht at sunset!

Package Inclusions

Ideally, check to see if the resort offers a special wedding or renewal of vows package that will feature not only the planning and coordination aspects but other additions too; these can include a decorated beach venue, a master of ceremonies, a cake and bottle of champagne, photography session and even local ‘bodu beru’ drummers who will add a Maldivian touch to the event.

Best Period

The good news is that there’s no bad time to have your Maldives wedding! That said, the peak season from November to April is when you can experience the best weather with plenty of sunshine; bear in mind rates will be higher too. The off-peak season from May to October sees the arrival of rains though not all the time so you can still host your ceremony, while rates will be less too.

Say bye to the traditional wedding concepts and discover new wedding themes that are increasingly becoming popular in the world. One of the latest trends is the ‘beach wedding concept’.

This is a new wedding concept for Malaysia as well. Properties such as Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa are just awesome for hosting beach weddings in Malaysia. Other popular destinations include Langkawi, Penang, and Sabah.

Wedding packages

Generally, beach wedding packages offered by resorts include pre-ceremony refreshments, welcome signage, decorated altar, petal aisle, and the wedding cake. Some resorts also go the extra mile to offer a romantic dinner for the couple.

Wedding planners

Getting the support of a wedding planner or not is a decision that the couple should make. If more decorations and other additional items are needed, a wedding planner can help you out. But the couple will have to pay a fee for his/her job.

General costs

In addition to the basic requirements, there can be other necessities such as sounds and lights (if it’s an evening function). Serving liquor to the guests also will be charged separately.

Embark on a Dhoni Cruise

A dhoni is a traditional boat and certain resorts have modified such vessels ideal for romantic cruises with a private crew to take care of your needs. You can catch a gorgeous sunset or spend time stargazing while sharing wine or champagne and even spend a night aboard, dreaming amidst the rhythmic songs of the sea.

Enjoy Romantic Dining

There are plenty of idyllic backdrops in which to enjoy an intimate meal with the one you love. Private dinners on the beach or by the pool overlooking the Indian Ocean are not to be missed; for something different, you can savour dinner on a secluded sandbank for two or aboard a dhoni as you sail into the horizon.
