The Philippines is home to many beautiful beaches, it is a sanctuary of breathtaking sceneries. Having a wedding right there on the powdery sands of the warn shore that snuggles in between the ties, would be the perfect setting to start a long lasting commitment. But planning a beach wedding requires more time and effort. Even the weather seems to be a great factor and so couples who want it, may need much time on their hands for the planning process.
Beach Wedding Philippines
Unlike traditional weddings where the seats, tables and caterers are available left and right, beach weddings may not have the same luxury. Although many resorts have readily available facilities and equipment for the occasion, couples may still need to talk with several suppliers like photographers and florists for the extra fees they may need to charge for the travel.
Then there goes the season. The Philippines is a tropical country which have the best summers and the worst rainy season. No matter how excited the couples are to get married, they need to consider the month least likely to rain like the usual summer season from February to May. As for the time, sunsets are always the best time. Aside from the fact that it sets the best romantic mood, it is also the least humid making it the most convenient moment for the occasion.
Couples should also allot more time for the preparation. Most weddings require six months for the well-planned traditional weddings but for beach weddings, it may require longer than that. It would also entail a lot of out-of-town trips to the location for pre-wedding preparations and oculars. A couple should also prepare spending a bit more since beach weddings require more staff and since it requires travel, some of the most important guests’ transportation might be expected to be handled by the couple.
The good news is, since it is a beach wedding, it is less likely to be formal. The guests wouldn’t be expected to wear extremely formal dresses and suits, instead, the wedding could go with a hula-inspired reception where everyone can just let go and have a good time.

Couples today are getting more and more unconventional. Some like to jump off a plane while saying their vows and some even like to swim underwater with marine life witnessing their love. Unconventional weddings are the new trend, but excluding the too extreme options, couples can have other options that may not be too traditional but still remain sacred and solemn.
For the couple who is environmentalist and appreciates the great outdoors, the La Mesa Eco Park is the best bet. The 33 hectare environmental wonderland offers five different areas, all of which presents a view that could make the couple more at par with Mother Nature. And since it’s only located in Quezon City, couples wouldn’t have to go on a long trip to get close with nature. It wouldn’t cost too much as well since the park offers its facilities starting at Php 5,000.00.

Every soon to be married couples try their best to have a solemn and romantic wedding venue to set everyone’s mood and to make their guests feel the love they have for each other. That is why churches are decorated with beautiful flowers.
Filipino Catholic couples are now open to ideas such as bringing their wedding outdoor and still celebrate the matrimony with a Catholic priest. The wedding venues evolve to having it celebrated on beach resorts and after the wedding rites, everybody would not go elsewhere for the reception. The guests may even enjoy the water after the reception and a wide variety of “gimmicks” can be done to entertain the newlyweds and the guests like having a fire dance performance or a hula dance. Miles away from a traditional wedding is having everyone travel after the wedding rites in the church to the reception hall, have a little celebration, and maybe have a singer/performer serenade everybody.
Fun and unique souvenirs may also be given away following the beach motif, like flip-flops or beautifully crafted seashells.
But of course, budget wise, beach weddings are twice as expensive as having a traditional one. Since most couple would need to have their guests travel from the city to the beach resort. Sometimes an accommodation for everybody would also be needed since the occasion would eat up their time for everybody’s preparation.
Good thing is that some beach resorts offer a package for wedding ceremonies and reception which has an accommodation for everybody too! Try the beach resorts at Batangas where the sand is white and the water is clear. Taal Lake and Taal Volcano is a romantic set for wedding also. Most of them would offer the whole resort for private use on the date of the wedding. This costs less and more fun!
