There is something very magical and romantic about a sunset. It’s the moment when different colours merge together to create a breathtaking vision for the person witnessing the view. That’s why sunset weddings are a major hit — for their cheesy and dreamy view.

So, if you too are planning on having a dreamy sunset wedding then we have the perfect guide for you here. Scroll below and start taking notes!

Your Complete Guide on How to Have a Dreamy Sunset Wedding

Choose A Fantastic Location

Well, this one’s a no-brainer. Your sunset wedding has to have a fantastic location like a beach, a rustic terrace, or the perfect view of the mountains. Basically, someplace from where you can see the sunset properly. Ladies, trust us that your wedding is going to be stupendous if you pick a fantastic location with a breathtaking view of the sunset!

Timing is Key

Sunset times change throughout the year, so make sure to choose a wedding date when the sun sets during a convenient time. Knowing the sunset timing is not just crucial for your schedule for the big day but also so that the photographers can capture the perfect shots that every bride dreams of!

Color Coordinated Bridesmaids & Best Men

Well, you may have a stunning backdrop of the sun setting but you also need some harmony amongst your guests’ outfits to achieve the perfect theme and get dreamy photos against the sunset. Color coordinate your bridesmaids and best men or have them don matching outfits. Mark our words, you’re gonna get pictures that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Capturing the Dreamy Setting

Another crucial thing to keep in mind is hiring a photographer who has shot a sunset wedding in the past and is good with it. The harsh light of the sun can be tricky to control in the camera which is why we recommend going with someone experienced who can click photos that will always be close to your heart.

Don’t Forget to Prioritise the Weather

One of the things you should keep in mind when planning a sunset wedding is the weather. Ideally, you would not want to have a wedding when there is peak summer or when the weather is humid. Pick a time when the weather is in your favour and the sun is also on your side!

Focus on Decor and Aesthetics

Another great way to achieve the sunset wedding of your dreams is by focusing on the decor and overall aesthetics. You may have the sunset perfectly timed but to complete the dreamy factor, colors such as soft colours reminiscent of the setting sun are equally important.
