Ocean City MD Beach Wedding
Polynesian Princess Beach Set Up & Extra Chairs

Maryland’s gorgeous beaches should consider renting a beach set that includes an archway and white chairs.  In addition to “marking your territory”, a beach set up adds structure and romance to your ceremony. The wedding runner and and chairs create an
aisle.  The archway, palm trees and tiki torches help the wedding party line up correctly.  The visual effect alerts other’s on the Ocean City beach that a wedding ceremony is in progress (Especially for joggers listening to their i-pods or  old men with metal detectors and headphones) .  For the best visual effect, try to place the archway as close to the ocean as you can without any chance of getting wet.  Early

The best bet for a successful beach wedding set up is to keep it simple.  The first measure of success is not blowing in the ocean.  You may see pictures on the internet of elaborate archways with billowing sails of cloth.  While that may work in the Caribbean or the South Pacific, that approach is usually unrealistic on the Ocean City MD beach.   Our strong breezes are great for keeping the wedding party cool on a warm day, but wreak havoc on flimsy or overly ornate archways.
