    5 Do’s and Don’ts for a Charleston Beach Wedding for 2020

    5 Do’s and Don’ts of a Charleston Beach Wedding

    Charleston Beach Wedding Dos:

    Do hire a wedding coordinator.

    Not only will the coordinator be available to setup your Charleston Beach Ceremony, he/she will know and understand the tides, lighting, permit requirements, along with all other technicalities that come along with a beach wedding. Not hiring a coordinator will leave your setup crew hot and tired as dragging decorations and setting up in the sand is no easy task.  It’s really a lot of work.

    Do provide transportation for your guests.

    With many beaches, parking is at a minimum or a premium price.  Providing transportation for your guests cuts any worries out and ensures everyone will be there on-time.

    Beach Wedding

    Do prepare for wind.

    Beaches typically have wind!  Take this into account with your hair style, veil, and dress unless you want to recreate the all so known famous Marylin Monroe pose!

    Do hire business professionals.

    Did you know that anyone getting compensated must have a business license to be able to conduct business! So if you find a great photographer at a discounted price, make sure they are licensed to conduct business where your wedding ceremony will take place.  If not, they may be asked to stop conducting business which would leave you without services or getting hit with a hefty fine.

    Do let the guys go informal.

    The beach is just too hot for tuxedos and heavy suites.  Opt for light weight fabrics such as cotton pants or even Bermuda shorts.

    Charleston Beach Wedding Don’ts:

    X Don’t have your beach wedding in the middle of the day in the summer.

    Not only will the sun be beating down on you and your guests, there will be many beach-goers around that may make it into your wedding album or worse, cheering for you like their favorite team just won the Superbowl.

    X Don’t wear heels.

    Heels and sand do not go well together. I recommend wearing flat sole sandals or even no shoes.  Having on heels will make your strut down the aisle look quite funny.

    X Don’t bring glass on the beach.

    Think about it.  Can you have glass at your neighborhood pool?  Same applies to the beach as it wouldn’t be fair if it broke and was left for someone to get cut or worse, an animal to eat it.

    X Don’t use a runner on the beach. Charleston Beach Wedding

    It does not work out well at all!  No matter how even the sand is prior to its placement, sand moves and thus so does the runner.

     

    X Don’t use artificial flower petals

    Artificial (faux) floral is bad for the environment and not allowed on Charleston beaches.  Remember earlier we mentioned wind at the beach, well the flower petals will eventually blow around or be taken out to sea by the tides.  If using flower petals, real petals will have to be utilized.

    Be sure to check out our Beach Package and let us help you plan your dream beach wedding.

    COVID-19 Tips on Rescheduling Your Wedding

    Guest Post by Kate Thornton of Captured by Kate

    We were in the process of writing a blog regarding rescheduling your wedding, but then read our friend Kate Thornton’s and completely agreed. Without further ado, below are 6 Tips on how to go about rescheduling your wedding due to the Corona Virus.

    First of all, my heart goes out to you. This is such an important time in your life and the current situation can be stressful.

    TIP 1. Contact your venue about future availability. Most venues will be happy to transfer your deposit to a price comparable date. Ask your venue to give you three dates that are open and work with your schedule.

    TIP 2. Once you have the three possible dates, create a Google Form Link and survey your current vendors’ availability. Then pick the date that the majority of your current vendors have open. Most will transfer the deposit to the new date.

    TIP 3. Be aware you’re vendors prices for 2021 may be higher because they released their 2021 pricing before the Pandemic and were expecting a busy year already. You may be asked by your current vendors to make up the difference if rescheduling in 2021.

    TIP 4. If you reschedule to a date that your current vendor is not available, they are in their rights to keep the deposit. However, they may be willing to give you a partial refund. Remember they have been turning away business on that date because of you.

    TIP 5. Consider rescheduling to a Weekday or a Sunday. These will be easier for your current vendors to accommodate and let’s face it, your guest list has an abundance of work vacation days to use up.

    TIP 6. Think positively. I personally can not wait for the massive celebrations when we can all get together again. Warning, you may get 100% of your guest list! Think about how excited everyone is going to be for your wedding. It’s going to be a truly EPIC party!!

    Learn more about how we can make your wedding day epic by contacting Reynolds Treasures today.

    Why Day-of Coordination Doesn’t Really Exist

    Why Day-of Coordination Doesn’t Really Exist  

    Lately, we have been getting lots of inquiries asking for just “Day-of” services.  Day-of Coordination doesn’t really exist.  Month-of Coordination is the service that is required.

    Many couples believe that they can plan their own wedding and simply have a coordinator show up on the day of the wedding and jump in.  Then came the newer planners, who decided to offer this service at a lower price to build a portfolio.  Long ago, we admit we did the same thing, but not for long as we realized that this simply doesn’t work. Keep reading and I will explain.

    Experienced Wedding Planner

    Experienced Wedding Planners have been in business for years and are professionals at identifying every potential issue that can arise at your wedding. They are able to manage all vendors prior to and on your wedding day.  They are also very resourceful, problem solvers, and calm under stressful situations. They built relationships with many of the vendors in town, along with venues.  Most importantly, they are licensed and insured.

    Inexperienced Wedding Planner

    They are most likely starting up their business and may only have a few weddings under their belt.  Knowledge of contracts and timelines is lacking along with insurance and being licensed.

    In order for a Wedding Planner to be successful at your event, the following should be considered:

    1. Your Planner needs to know who all of your vendors are and have read the contracts. They also need to understand each of their duties, what exactly they were contracted for, setup times and start times.  I can’t tell you how many things we catch just by reading the contracts.
    2. The Planner should know all of the aspects of the venue. This is a MUST!  It is mandatory that the planner have a walk through with the venue manager prior to the wedding to finalize the floor plan, load in and out location, electrical outlets, extra equipment, etc.
    3. Planners also are in charge of drafting a timeline for your wedding day. This is distributed to all of your vendors to follow, but may also need to be adjusted in real time if problems arise.
    4. What about rehearsal? Your Wedding Planner will direct your rehearsal.  Do not expect the venue manager to do this unless they are specifically contracted to do so. 
    5. And then there are your wedding decorations. The favors, welcome table, cake serving set, escort cards, etc.  Your Wedding Planner will obtain these items from you ahead of time so that they can review and inform you if there is anything missing.

    Costs of a Wedding Coordinator

    So the most popular question asked is, why does it cost so much? Let me break it down.

    Contracting Vendors and Obtaining Contracts

    3 Hours

    Review of Contracts

    3-4 Hours

    Venue Walk Through

    2 Hours

    Timeline Creation

    3-4 Hours

    Rehearsal

    1 Hour (usually everyone is late so 2 hours realistically)

    Floor Plan Creation

    1-2 Hours

    Other Pre Planning

    1-2 Hours

    Wedding Day

    10-12 Hours

    Total Hours

    24-31 Hours

    Note that this doesn’t include business expenses such as assistants, insurance, licenses, and other overhead costs. So next time you ask a Wedding Planner to drop their pricing, you are asking them to work for an average of $4 an hour. Providing Month-of Services allows us to provide the correct level of service and professionalism that allows you to have the best day of your life.

    Be in the KNOW…South Carolina Beach Wedding Tips

    Destination or Local? Who doesn’t love the beach?

    And what better place to have a wedding! Great scenery and if you decide to marry at sunrise or sunset; then what an amazing sight! But before you run out and start picking out the perfect beach spot to have your ceremony; there are something’s you might want to consider.

    Wild Dunes Wedding Reynolds Treasures

    Time of Day

    First, what time of day are you considering for your beach
    wedding? This is important because of the tide and lighting for photography.
    You should know that at high tide you may NOT have much if any beach to have a
    ceremony on. In addition, parts of the beaches are more crowded than others.
    This is something that your wedding planner will already know!

    Secondly, the time of day will also be important; especially
    in the summer because it can get HOT; even on the beach. You might think the
    beach brings a breeze. That is true but at times it seems like the breeze has
    been overtaken by the sun. Your best bet is to hire a wedding planner to
    coordinate that for you! OK, so you picked the absolute perfect beach location
    or have you?

    Isle of Palms Beach Wedding

    What about your guests?

    Consider the guests for a minute. I know this is your DAY and
    it’s all about what you want but have a quick reality check.  How are your
    guests going to get to this beach location? Walk there, right? Great, but do
    you have older guests that may not be able to walk a 1/2 mile through the sand
    to get there? It’s not like they are walking on a solid road. They are going to
    have to walk through sand. Not only that, but how far are you going to want to
    walk with your hair and make-up in the heat to get to that “perfect beach
    location”? So KNOW that a beach ceremony location with easy access usually
    works best.

    Beach Chairs

    Do you want a beach ceremony with chairs, decorations and an
    arbor? OK, but what about that breeze? Regardless of time of day; there is typically
    a breeze. Sometimes it can be ever so slight and perfect while other times it
    is so blustery it can knock you sideways.  With that in mind, what do you
    want to set up? Chairs?  Chairs can be done, but again the location can
    hinder that timing as well as the amount of chairs you want. (side note: most
    rental companies have a minimum spend amount which is usually $500 that is not
    hit with just chair rentals). If you rent chairs yourself for setup, it can be
    very tedious treading through the sand having to carry or wagon half a dozen
    chairs at a time. Speaking of time, it is time consuming. So KNOW to plan
    enough time to have the beach location set before guests arrive. Or better yet,
    get a beach package where you can add
    on these options so you everything is done for you!

    Folly Beach Wedding

    OK, so what about an arbor? Same thing goes. Plan for enough time but also plan for the fact that depending on the amount of breeze/wind that arbor could come tumbling down. On the other hand why would you want to “decorate” the beach? It possess a beauty all its own. Why cover it up? And then there is the issue of “getting ready”. If you are getting married on the beach, you have to get ready off site. Either at a hotel, rent a beach house or other location you choose. No beach facilities to do that at. Sorry, its a beach! After all is said and done just remember to let your guests KNOW that shoes are optional!

    Contact Reynolds Treasures today for your all-inclusive beach package.

    Perfect Honeymoon Destinations

    Honeymoons can be whatever you and your partner want them to be, travelling, skiing and even city escapes are becoming common choices for honeymoons, it’s all about what is most memorable and fun for you as newlyweds! If you’re looking for a sunny beach holiday as the honeymoon destination then this is a look at the 5 choices that offer just a little bit more than a beach and cocktails.

    Mexico

    One of the most popular Hollywood holiday choices, Mexico is a beautiful country full of beaches, booze and entertainment. Most resort areas are constantly opening new hotels and a lot are offering special packages that cater for honeymooners. Spas, golf courses and pool areas are likely to keep you most entertained throughout the honeymoon and it’s all supported by perfect restaurants in the evening. Areas such as Cancun go all out with entertainment too, famously, there’s a pirate ship dinner that you can go aboard and whilst you’re eating, another pirate ship comes next to it and a full evening of entertainment is shown with pirates flying across on ropes from ship to ship.

    California

    Known for its sunny beaches, California is a growing choice for newlyweds. Places like Santa Barbara are available for peaceful romantic days but the option for a busy day out in L.A is also on the cards. It’s ideal for any couple wanting to relax or go on an adventure. Snorkeling, hikes and even sea kayaking are all common day trips in California, and you never know, you might bump into a couple of actors on the beach.

    Greece

    Mykonos has been dubbed the new St. Tropez, a relaxing holiday that never seems tire from the perfect blue views. It’s become a famous craft beer location spot for holidaymakers and premiered the largest pool in Europe in 2017. It’s like booking a few weeks in paradise if you looking to relax for an extended amount of time.

    Thailand

    It’s becoming a well-known factor that Thailand is a dream honeymoon location. The country is full of festivals, drinking and lazing on the beach daily, and best of all once you get there, it’s a cheap place to part with money. Again, it’s a perfect location for laying on the beach daily, but for also exploring the local towns and remote islands. A lot of people come to Thailand to learn and embrace natural beauty, to be able to do this as a newlywed will only enhance the experience. Just be sure to pack a comfortably fitted tracksuit for the plane journey, it’s a long one.

    South of France

    Staying in Cannes is a perfect place for any honeymooner, it’s a seaside town full of luxuries, beach restaurants and lively bars. There’s plenty to do in Cannes itself but if it’s a long honeymoon, it’s a town that neighbors Monaco, Nice and St. Tropez and each town offers their own unique take to life by the sea, from a quiet seaside town of St. Tropez to the busy city of Monaco. Ideally, you could hire a car for your stay as most of the neighboring towns are less than a thirty-minute drive.
