As a bridegroom, you want your bride to look nothing less than a princess. However, the cost of the princess gowns can take a toll on your pocket. Does it mean you would compromise on your dreams? Certainly not. The better brand you go for, the more you would be paying up. This is unnecessary spending. You can cut down on this. When you buy branded gowns, the cost of the brand name contributes much more than the actual fabric. Therefore, you can go for custom made marriage garments. Ultimately, the craftsmanship is what matters the most.
It is inevitable that some of your wedding guests will show up wearing impractical high heeled shoes to your wedding on the sand. This is why it is a great idea for the hosts of a beach wedding to put out a basket of flip flops and a shoe check station. Your guests will definitely feel more relaxed when they are not struggling to walk over the sand. Providing flip flops is such an easy thing to do, and it can really help to get your guests into the laid-back beachy frame of mind. Set out bottles of water next to the shoe check station so that your guests will have a cool drink to sip as they await the start of the marriage ceremony.

Shop thrift stores for your wedding gown! There is no shame in saving money. Think about it. Expensive wedding gowns are typically worn for only a couple of hours and then they are discarded.
