Hello, I am having a beach wedding and I know that the venues and catering is going to be the most expensive.I wanted seafood though I understand I will have to make some sacrifices. Does anyone have food suggestions or any ideas about how to keep this wedding cost as low as possible?
I have shot beach weddings where the couple rented a condo just as was mentioned above. The groom loved to cook and he and his bride prepared the meal for their guests. Another had a lovely beach reception on the sand behind a resort where they were staying. The resort did not charge them for the space. They rented tables, brought in their own linens and decor, rented a couple of tents. They did use a caterer but the meal was a simple Mexican buffet. They arranged it all long-distance. Both were destination weddings.
....Also, I have had bridal couples who DID rent a condo, and then friends/family prepared the reception meal right on site, for consumption after the beachfront ceremony. This option also allows a "Plan B" location for the ceremony in case of inclement weather. (How many people are you expecting? And what date?)
Do you also need an Officiant? I'm available, schedule allowing. Please check out my listing under Eventective's OFFICIANT category. Congratulations! (And P.S., check out mobile caterers for delivery of pre-cooked stuff, perhaps for consumption right on or adjacent to the beach [local ordinances allowing....].)

Instead of going with a caterer that will charge a huge amt. if you are just going to have seafood, i would suggest to go to a distributer seafood house , and see if they would broil or bake part of the fish, In my home town we have that option. Research for this type of food will save you lots of monies.
How about fish tacos!! Delicious!!!
