Prep Your Guests Make sure your guests know that the wedding is actually on the sand, so they can dress appropriately. This can be communicated with the wedding invitation (included with the map/directions), on your wedding website and through word-of-mouth.
Be aware, most beach sites are public. If you want complete privacy, rent a beachfront restaurant or hotel, or an oceanview private estate.
