Five Super Myrtle Beach Tips For the Destination Bride!

Weddings In Myrtle Beach has a special environment. There are some key bits of information you should be aware of. Here are some helpful tips for the destination bride;

1.   If you're set on having a beach wedding, keep in mind it's only allowed non-commercially. This means you can say “I do” on a public beach if your officiant does not receive payment. There are also many public places such as parks and some residential areas as long as you have a facility-use permit.

2.   If you plan on having a sand ceremony, you'll have to substitute plastic alternatives for any glass items such as vases or bottles. Neither glass nor fire is permitted on the beach at all, you can use candles and tiki torches as decoration only.

3.   There are several venues to choose from to get married. Your options include the beach, a country club, plantation estates or private resort gardens. No matter where you decide, planning ahead is vital. It's best to be aware of seasonal weather patterns especially hurricane season. Summers are warm and humid and are famous for daily showers. Temps range from the 60's in January through March, and 70's/80's in the spring and fall. It's highly recommended to have a backup plan in case of inclement weather such as a waterproof tent, a pavilion, or a banquet hall.

4.   Destination weddings usually involve traveling for most if not all of your guests, so try to offer a range of hospitality locations to accommodate different budgets and tastes. You may also want to include an extra, special event prior to or after the wedding day to really make the trip worthwhile. Many couples combine the ceremony with the honeymoon as a package deal.

5.   A couple bonus tips for the bride to be; Make sure the wedding gown is of a light and breathable fabric for comfort. If you decide to have a train, consider the type of ground you'll be walking on, whether it's sand or grass, you don't want to stain the train! One last thing to think about is getting a professional makeup artist. You want your makeup to hold all day without caking or streaking in the heat. A professional photographer would also be ideal.

So what are you waiting for? Myrtle Beach is calling!

Virtual Wedding Mall Myrtle Beach Press Release

Download Links:   Google Play
                                iPad (available spring 2013)

App Category: Lifestyle

About The App: The Virtual Wedding Mall Myrtle Beach is the first and only app designed specifically for weddings in Myrtle Beach SC. Brides who plan to be married in Myrtle Beach can plan the wedding in one place using their smartphones. By providing brides with a comprehensive and localized mobile app to plan her wedding, VWMMB will elevate Myrtle Beach’s status as a ’wedding destination’ and generate increased revenue for Myrtle Beach businesses.
Before VWMMB, brides who wanted to get married in Myrtle Beach S.C. had few mobile resources and no hyper-local focus to assistant in planning the wedding. VWMMB wanted to reach brides where they are so we concentrated on the one device over 500,000,000 brides worldwide have on them at all times! Destination brides were left with the choice of hiring a Myrtle Beach Wedding Planner, (not in the budget for some), have a friend or relative in the MB area to help, or rely on information found on the internet. Frustration occurs for the bride to be as she scours the massive web. One link leads to another link, then to another and before she knows it, she has viewed 385 websites and blogs, confusion sets in in and many hours have been wasted! Choosing a vendor for an out-of-town wedding is hard. A bride will make her selections based on a website, images online, social media and customer reviews.  Then she hopes for the best! The stress of not meeting vendors until they arrive or fear of unknown is a problem. There is no “do over” with a wedding.  You have one chance to get it right. The VWMMB solves all of these problems. Brides who download the free mobile app available for Android and iPhone & iPad, will have confidence in knowing that each business has been prescreened for credibility. Due to the quick access to exactly what she is searching for, the savvy bride to be will soon find that they can save time and money using the VWMMB. 

VWMMB was created with the bride in mind. Give her what she wants! She wants quick relevant information that fits perfectly on a mobile device with no banner ads or marketing messages bidding and buying for her attention.  Beautiful quality images, rich media video tutorials, DIY, tips, and social media integrated in harmony, kept in one location. No searching, no clutter, no confusion. The VWMMB has a gift registry, music library, camera, calculator, gps and more.  The vision for the app came from the developer who had an extensive background as a wedding photographer. Working with wedding planners as a colleague and listening to brides as a vendor, the experience became a blueprint and inspiration for the development of this app.  VWMMB brings the pieces of the puzzle in one place. VWMMB made sure to include each vendor by category alphabetically, so that it would be easy to find. This app has an idea gallery and a Pinterest page within the app to help brides create planning boards and accessing them all in one place to share and save.  New updates and features are added as new technology becomes available allowing the VWMMB to stay relevant to the needs of our on the go brides.
