Long Beach Wedding
Conveniently situated in Los Angeles County and bordering Orange County, Long Beach is the ideal location for an enchanting wedding. Long Beach brides have easy access to the trendy couture bridal boutiques near Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills, but can still enjoy the beauty of a quieter Long Beach wedding.
Long Beach Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations
Boasting a balmy Mediterranean climate, Long Beach is wedding perfect all year long. Summers typically enjoy temperatures in the low 80s, with gorgeous evenings in the 70s. Even the winter months are comfortable, generally averaging temperatures around 60 degrees. Rain isn’t too big of a worry for Long Beach brides. When rain does occur, it’s primarily in the winter while the summers are usually dry.
Long Beach Wedding Planning: A Destination Wedding
Even if you live in the area, the Long Beach Wedding Center offers convenient packages for simple weddings. Out-of-town couples can receive a marriage license at the chapel and hold their ceremony the same day. Commitment ceremonies and vow renewals are also available at the chapel. All packages include the marriage license, use of wedding accessories like a bridal bouquet and flower girl basket, and a posed photo. Photo packages, flower arrangements, and other accessories are available for an additional fee.
Long Beach Wedding Planning: Eco-Friendly Options
Long Beach, along with most Los Angeles and Orange County cities, promotes eco-friendly practices for both businesses and individuals. Planning an eco-chic wedding isn’t too hard in this area. Many Long Beach caterers use locally sourced, organic ingredients and there are a number of cake designers that do as well. Have your wedding dress custom made using hemp, bamboo, or organic silk fabric – or better yet, rent your gown or visit a local bridal consignment shop.
Whether you’re an eco-conscious Long Beach local or an out-of-town visitor arriving for a romantic destination wedding, your big day can be a beautiful and memorable event with a little planning and help from the right vendors. Be sure to order your dress and rings several months in advance, and secure the services of a caterer, florist, and cake designer plenty of time ahead for a stress-free Long Beach wedding.
