No matter what time of year it is, you will want to start as early as possible planning your summer seaside wedding in Southampton. There is much to organise and do, and one of the only ways you’ll get it all done in time to relax and enjoy this long-anticipated day is to get as much done early on. Here are some fun ideas for that seaside wedding which you can really set into motion quite easily.
Why Choose a Venue When You Have the Beach?
One of the greatest concerns many couples have is finding the right venue at the right cost. While there are amazing venues with full-service staff, why not have everything from the nuptials to the post ceremony celebration right there in the open air? What could be lovelier than a wedding on the beach where fun and games and a good bit of laughter come quite naturally? While the best beaches may not be exactly ‘in’ Southampton, they are near enough to Southampton itself for the next fun idea you’ll want to explore.
Are You Off Your Noodle?
According to the Urban dictionary, and longstanding as an idiom for your ‘brain,’ you might be asked if you are off your noodle, or out of your mind, not having a catered affair. But why would you want to spoil the fun at a seaside wedding with that extra bit of formality that a catered event portrays? Why not be literally ‘off your noodle’ by having delightful and sinfully delicious meals delivered from one of Ned’s locations, from the famed Noodle Bar menu so that guests can pre-order what they’d love to eat? How much fun is that? It certainly isn’t the normal fare for a wedding feast, but it sure will be some of the best food and most fun you can imagine!
Do You REALLY Want to Wear White?
While many girls dream of that bridal gown of white silk and roses with a long train and the ever-present veil, if it’s a fun wedding you are after, you must decide right up front if you really want to wear white! Yes, white is both the traditional summer and wedding colour, but you aren’t confined to choosing that as the colour, or absence of colour as the case may be. Why not choose pastels or even cosplay attire to liven up the day a bit more? There is nothing in the “rule book” that says brides must wear white, so choose a theme, choose a non-traditional gown, and this will be a fun-filled day you’ll always remember.
When all is said and done, this is your day. You don’t want to get married in a cathedral, and you certainly don’t want a catered affair. You want a laid-back day where there is little ceremony and lots of fun. That’s why you’ve chosen the beach, after all, so why not make the most of it? In other words, you don’t need to be restricted to anyone else’s idea of what a wedding should be. You know what you want, so go for it! (Just remember to have a Plan B in case Mother Nature is not on your side!)
