Florida beach weddings are a popular choice when looking for a destination beach wedding experience
Treasure Island, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2018 -- With the escalating costs of a traditional wedding, couples in the US and overseas are increasingly seeing Florida destination wedding packages as a refreshingly natural place to say "I Do". The beaches are a popular choice for vacations and indeed many families find they fall in love with the area and return year after year to their favorite spot. When a place becomes a firm favorite, it is only natural to consider celebrating such an important occasion on the beach. As a venue, the beach has more to offer than a picture-perfect setting. The family-friendly nature of a beach wedding is an important consideration when young children will be in attendance or part of the ceremony itself. The environment is less intimidating for a young ring bearer or flower girl and fun aspects can be incorporated easily such as throwing beach balls after the presentation of the happy couple, blowing bubbles in place of confetti, or letting each family member participate in the Unity Sand Ceremony using different colors or sand or different types of shell. Another flexible aspect of a beach wedding is the dress code, so from tuxedos to casual shirts, every dress code is acceptable. Beach brides need not compromise on the dress of their dreams yet they can still embrace a wedding with 'sandy toes'.
Florida wedding packages are offered to 'bundle and save' some of the most important parts of the day; the photographer, the minister, the aisle, and the arch. Increasingly couples are also hiring a wedding day coordinator to manage the small details of the day, their local knowledge is invaluable when timelines are slipping or something unexpected happens like the cake being late or a rain shower. For the bigger wedding parties, an optional wedding rehearsal is also popular, usually the evening before the wedding. This is also a great kick-off to the pre-wedding dinner which is traditional. Local wedding planners are also able to recommend suitable places to eat or accommodation where the group can stay together and celebrate in a group of suites or at a beach house wedding.
For smaller ceremonies, typically Florida beach vow renewals or couples eloping in Florida, the packages could include a heart of fresh rose petals in the sand or a simple two post arch. For most ceremonies, a permit will be required and that fee can be added to the ceremony proposal.
Florida wedding packages can be tailored so they fit a couple looking at eloping in Florida, or a gathering of up to 200 guests. Beach wedding receptions are permitted on some of the beaches and as an alternative, there are several accommodation options where the wedding party can stroll back from the ceremony and host a cake and bubbly reception in a courtyard or around a pool area.
Treasure Island Weddings, St Pete Beach weddings, Siesta Key weddings, and Clearwater beach weddings boast spectacular sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico, perfect for couples who want sunset wedding day portraits. Florida beach weddings and reception packages can be purchased which includes the ceremony and also the party to follow. This may include items such as a DJ, a custom made cake, a coordinator for the wedding and a professional beach wedding photographer.
