Beach parties are a popular option for weddings, birthday parties, and other events thrown during summer time. The sun is out, it’s warm, flowers are blossoming, and the outdoors is the most beautiful it can be. Therefore, there is no reason to have parties indoors and have a large number of guests stuffed inside one room when everyone can be outside and enjoying the good weather. One of the most popular options currently is the concept of using beach as location for special occasions. The first step is obviously finding a perfect location. For example, if you’re throwing a wedding, you will need to look into beach wedding venues that allow you to hold large gatherings and maybe even put up a marquee. If you’re party is smaller, you might be able to get away with it on a public beach. However, you should definitely research and get some information on whether you need an event permit or not.
When it comes to selecting a date and time, check the weather forecast to ensure that the weather will be favourable. Further, it is important to factor in wind conditions when picking a time for the special occasion. Winds can be rough later in the day, so make sure to make decisions based on that as well. The next step is finalizing your guest list and making the invitations. Ideally, you shouldn’t impose a strict dress code. In fact, you should encourage your guests to wear free and comfortable clothing. It isn’t fun to walk around on a beach whilst wearing a three-piece suit. If it is a beach event, your party venues will demand comfortable clothing. When it comes to refreshments, you should opt for food that is easy to eat. Finger food is the best option as full meals will be difficult to eat at seaside parties. Keep the food simple and light, as that will match the theme of your party. Beverages should also fit in with the overall theme. Keep the drinks light and refreshing, as your guests will definitely need a thirst quencher after being exposed to the sun. For example, hydrating drinks such as watermelon juice or mojitos are good options.
Additional tips include adding pieces of décor that fit the theme. You could add little umbrellas to the drinks or create beach themed party favours for all the guests. Further, you could include music that also fits in with the overall theme. These small tips can make a large difference when it comes to solidifying the atmosphere you want to create at a seaside party. In conclusion, if you follow this tips, your guests will definitely get an amazing seaside experience at your party, and be thankful that you decided to make good use of the favourable weather.
