One wedding idea that is common is the use of wedding candles during a wedding ceremony. Many brides and grooms who get married in beach weddings often want to light a unity candle during the wedding ceremony. A unity candle is a wedding tradition that is usually done indoors.
My experience is that the windy atmosphere of a beach wedding does not mix with the fragile flame of a unity candle. Many of my clients who ignore my wedding advice NOT to light a unity candle outdoors often have to fake it when the flame of the candle ultimately goes out. There have been those couples who thought they had it figured out by buying a long necked main candle holder to protect the flame, however, when trying to grab the flame with the smaller candle, that smaller candle flame will often meet it’s demise or the couple will burn their hands trying to dip into the long candle holder. Even more awkward is when you must use a long necked lighter to frantically light the candle. This is not the feeling that most people want during their perfect wedding.
In my opinion, if you want to include a ceremony addition during a beach wedding there is an easier wedding tradition: a sand ceremony. I have done many wedding sand ceremonies and the mix of the wind and the sand is very dramatic. Also, what is wonderful, if you choose a beautiful container and your favorite colors of sand, you can have a nice wedding vessel as a great memory of your wedding.
