Say 'I Do' to a Beach Wedding

Everyone loves an outdoor wedding in the fall. The temperatures are cooler, but not too cool, the morning skies seem bluer and the sunsets are a radiant blend of pinks and oranges. If you're planning fall nuptials, consider the sugar-white sands of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach for your destination wedding location. Whether you say your vows on the sand or from the deck of a beachfront cottage, the natural surroundings will provide a picturesque backdrop for your special day. Make your event a day to remember with unique touches that only a beach wedding can provide.

• Send a love letter afloat with your wedding date in a message in a bottle.

• Send guests home with a little piece of the beach. Sprinkle a little sand in a clear goodie bag with seashells in it for guest favors.

• If your nuptials will be in the sand, provide each guest with a pair of flip flops.

• Consider a departure from the norm and use starfish for boutonnières. Another plus to beach weddings in the fall are the off-season lodging rates.
