So your guests don't melt under the hot sun, plan on an early-evening ceremony. (Bonus: The prettiest ocean views occur approximately 15 minutes before sunset.) Once the sun goes down, you'll need to provide some light—set up rows of lanterns and candles on the beach so everyone can smoothly make their way to the reception.
Mix it up during the party by including beachy music—think calypso, reggae, steel drums, or even stilt dancers to add Caribbean flavor to the night. If you're hiring a DJ, you may need to rent equipment (speakers, microphones, amps) should the venue's sound system be insufficient.
