Hi, I wouldn't rent chairs, big waste of money. If the ceremonty is going to be less than 30 min, most people wouldn't mind standing. But be mindful of elderly and bring a few chairs for them, letting your guests know they are reserved. Pretty ribbon will work to rope off an area for guests to stand. If you want chairs for everybody, local firestations are usually glad to help, the almost always have them.
 As far as music, download Pachabel's Canon and the wedding march, use Canon for your attendants to walk down your "aisle" to and the wedding march. Put someone in charge of your music, as soon as your bridesmaids get to the alter, switch to the wedding march.
 You can use a portable CD player.
  If you don't have an alter, draw a huge heart in the sand for you and your groom to stand in. Good luck!!!

I just got married in a small ceremony and took pictures in my dress at the beach--heels (however small) + sand = sinking. Wedges are the way to go--I got a pair of these at payless in a gold tone (http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?productId=64389&lotId=067631&selectedSegment=Adult&width=8.5,Regular&size=8.5,Regular ) and changed into them for the beach shots and they were perfect--comfortable, gave me a little height, and didn't sink into the sand.
For the favor tins, an easy way to add your initials would be: print your initials and the date onto cardstock, cut out (or punch out with a large craft punch) a cute shape the size of the tin, secure to top of tin with glue or double-sided tape (they sell these little sticky foam dots for scrapbooking that would be perfect)
Good luck, congratulations, and be sure to let us know how it goes!

For shoes, I'd go with flats. you can get silk or satin ones that would go well with your dress, unlike flip flops, but they won't sink in and give you problems like heels. my hubby's cousin got married in flats because they're Ukrainian and their ceremony is almost 2 hours (all standing), and they looked just adorable on her, and not at all out of place.

I also agree that blankets or beach mats would be a sweet touch and good seating if your guests don't want to stand, but as others mentioned, all beach weddings I've seen have people standing, except for the very old or very young.

good luck and congratulations!

Imnot as nervous as I though I would be but I am stressed. Ok so we decided no chairs and we just rented an arch. The isle will be marked by theseheart shaped glass containers igot at walmart today for adollar each. I'm going to put tea lights in them so you can see them better. Ok soooo I got my hair done and I'm going to wear a birdcage veil and now my question is, when we kiss does he lift it a little or just wear it right below my nose so it's not a problem?
Btw, thanks guys for all the advice!!!!

I went a little overboard making reusable nursing pads Tongue PM if you want to swap for some.

I think the vision of a barefoot beach bride is beautiful, but don't forget how hot Texas sand gets in the summer.  (I forgot if you mentioned when you're getting married but anyway.) I think wedges would be great, but possibly a little difficult to walk in.
I personally hate standing around all the time, so since you're not renting chairs, you might want to think about buying/borring blankets for people to sit on. If you decide against that, you might want to remind people to wear comfortable shoes.
Oh and I looove birdcage veils! When I've seen them, they've always been above the mouth so it's not in the way.
