Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular in the 21st century, one of the best being beach weddings. Kenya boasts some of the best beaches in the world from Mombasa to Kilifi, to Malindi and Lamu.
One reason as to why you should consider a beach wedding is it’s an easy way to incorporate an adventure into such a special ceremony. It could most possibly involve travelling and other beach activities such as snorkelling, jet skiing, boating and most importantly, romantic relaxation on the beach. These types will help in bringing a group of friends and family closer together as you’ll get to spend more time together than the few hours you would have at a traditional wedding.
Beach destination weddings are also more relaxed than your traditional wedding. As a bride, they will offer you the chance to have a light, airy yet elegant dress rather than an embellished one. This would also be the chance for you to acceptably ditch that pair of high heels and opt for a comfortable pair of sandals. Amandadress.com.au offers a wide selection of Beach wedding dresses in Australia; this should give you an idea of what we mean.
Not to mention, beach weddings make it much easier to have your honeymoon. Think of it as a two-in-one vacation if you may. This is fantastic as you will already have your first week as a default ‘vacation’ and it would be much easier for you to just extend your time away, in order for you to have your honeymoon.
Kenya’s coastal locations such as Kilifi, Lamu, Watamu and Diani, offer you multiple activities that would be sure to keep you and your guests entertained if you opted for a beach wedding. There are exciting tourist destinations such as the ruins of Mnarani, the Vasco Da Gama Pillar, the beautiful untouched Swahili town of Lamu which offer timeless, breathtaking adventures for all.
