Parting Notes

Is there anything better than a summer beach wedding? Well, perhaps a summer beach wedding in Perth! You can expect little precipitation during these months (but make sure to ask if your venue has a backup or plan B for inclement weather, anyway). Perth is warm year-round but try to avoid winter weddings as evenings can be cooler and there is quite a bit of rainfall—which might put a dampener on an outdoor beach wedding!
