Why a Beach Wedding is Right for You
It's a unique experience for you and your guests a beach wedding allows you more creative freedom. It's a chance to actually spend some quality time with your guests. You can have a mini vacation for 3 to 4 days with your guests before the wedding. As soon as you are pronounced husband and wife you will already be on your honeymoon. No waiting, no travel time. You are already there! You have freedom to make your wedding truly your own. It can be traditional, untraditional or a combination of both.
Why a Beach Wedding May Not be Right for You
You probably will not have as many guests at your wedding as you would at home. Not everyone will be able to take the time or have the money to spend on the trip. This may save you some money, but if you dreamed of the big wedding with hundreds of guests, you might be disappointed.
You will have to learn to be more laid back and relax about some of the details.

Carlsbad is a coastal resort city lying along the Pacific Ocean in the North County San Diego section of Southern California. The 2009 population was estimated by the California Department of Finance to be 104,652. Carlsbad was incorporated in 1952, in large part to generate sufficient funding to connect with the water pipeline running through San Diego County, but also to avoid being annexed by Oceanside. The city is mainly known for shopping, tourism, a booming high-tech industry, and resort living.
The city has drafted ordinances protecting sensitive wildlife habitat, becoming one of the first municipalities in the State of California to do so. The city has also pledged to protect a specified amount of land within the city limits from development of any kind and spends significant funds to restore habitats destroyed by newer development projects.
Carlsbad is located 87 miles (140 km) south of Los Angeles and 35 miles (56 km) north of downtown San Diego. High property values, above average median family incomes, and high education levels have made Carlsbad one of the wealthiest communities in California and in the United States. A low population density, coastal location, thriving commercial sector, and an award-winning school district all contribute to the high cost of living in the area. It is one of the highest income places in the United States.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 40.8 square miles (105.6 km²) of which, 37.4 square miles (97.0 km²) are land and 3.4 square miles (8.7 km²) are (8.24%) water, the majority of which is contained within three lagoons and one lake.
The northern area of the city is considered to be part of the tri-city area, which consists of northern Carlsbad, southern Oceanside and western Vista.
Most of the current city area, including many of its boasted attractions, has been annexed from neighboring unincorporated areas since the 1970s.
