You are one of many getting married in 2021 and have been debating the wedding time. Since you are getting married on the beach in Perdido Key, Florida, you should seriously think about the sunset. Why? you ask, why not midday? The simple answer here brides- the sun is going to be very bright and hot midday. Makeup will melt, guests will be thirsty, flowers will wilt, and you, in a lovely dress, walking across the sand, will sweat. That is surely not the dreamy wedding you had in mind. The Sunset is a different moment.
Picture this, the sky with all the beautiful colors of pink, peach, yellow, and purple, playing with the gentle blue that will be lighting up your wedding sunset. The temperature will have dropped a few degrees, and a light breeze is blowing in. Not only will you be happy, so will your guests. As you glide across the sand and down the aisle, many happy faces shall be smiling at you. And you will be more comfortable because you will not have the sun beating down on you, which will put you in a better mood. Now isn’t that better than midday? You know it is!
Another reason to consider a sunset wedding is there will not be as many people on the beach. Most people visiting Perdido Key will be here for a vacation and enjoy the beach during the day. You may even be doing it yourself before your ceremony with your sweetheart. Most visitors leave around 4 pm in the summer to get cleaned up to go to a local restaurant for dinner. Fewer people on the beach will add to your ceremony’s ambiance and be a moment where the two of you bond deeply.
Photography at sunset cannot be beaten! The soft blush of sunset complements all skin tones. Not only the bride but mothers and grandmothers will look beautiful in photos as well. The picture of the bride and groom walking into the sunset and the beginning of a life together cannot be matched. We’ve seen some beautiful sunsets on the beach with happy couples, and it’s a moment in time you will never forget.
By now, you are getting the message. Sunsets are glorious here. If you have never seen one try to book your accommodations a couple of days early so you can sit on the beach and enjoy the beauty yourself. Have the person you love beside you and together watch the last rays of the sun fall into the sea. Now that’s romance.
Looking forward to seeing you on the beach!
