Having a Small Daytona Beach Wedding

Are you looking for an intimate, small Daytona Beach Wedding ceremony? All of our beach wedding packages can be tweaked to fit your guest limit.

If you are looking for more colors and more traditional wedding choices, such as having a bridal party, an aisle-way, and more guests, our Nautical Knot is also an ideal choice. 

Florida Simply Package

Our Florida Simply Package is our budget friendly Daytona Beach wedding package. This package is only good for the bride and groom and up to six guests. It includes the bamboo canopy draped in your choice of white or ivory with the option to have a strand of starfish across the top of the bamboo canopy. We also include a unity sand ceremony, officiant and a ceremony photographer to complete everything you need for your beach wedding ceremony in Daytona to be a success. 

How to make the Florida Simply Package even more special

We believe in making your small Daytona Beach wedding just as eventful as any other wedding. We have the option to add additional photos for an additional charge. This keeps the photographer at the beach for up to 45 minutes (including the ceremony) to take posed photos of you down by the water. You will receive all the photos via digital download link, or you will have the option to have a CD of the photos mailed to you for an additional charge. We love this option for small Daytona Beach Weddings, so you make sure you have the best photos to bring home with you and show off to your friends. 

Adding a first dance is another way to make sure that your small Daytona beach wedding is unforgettable. You and your significant other will share a dance to the song of your choice in the most beautiful setting under your bamboo canopy.

Our Simply Deluxe Beach Wedding Package has it all! What makes the Simply Deluxe Beach Wedding package the ideal choice for your small Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony?

This beach wedding package has a guest limit of 6 as it is meant for small Daytona Beach Weddings, and as with  all of our Simply beach wedding packages we do not allow any bridal party.

Hotel Weddings in Daytona Beach

Hotel Weddings in Daytona Beach, Florida

Hotel weddings in Daytona Beach are one of the many attractions for a Florida beach wedding in Daytona. Daytona Beach is one of the only places in Florida with an abundance of hotels DIRECTLY on the beach. Many hotels will claim to be on the beach, but will have a long walkway, or even a street blocking you! In Daytona Beach you have the option to have a wedding at your hotel that is directly on the ocean.

Hotel Weddings in Daytona Beach- Are they right for you?

Convenience– Hotel weddings in Daytona are the most convenient way to celebrate your Florida beach wedding ceremony. With a true one-stop-shop option, you can rest assured that your day will run smoothly. You can get ready at your hotel room, walk down to your Daytona Beach wedding ceremony and then head right back up to your hotel to enjoy your reception. Don’t stress over coordinating travel plans, including directions, and hoping your guests arrive on time. This is also a great backup option for rain! 

Affordable– Having a beach wedding ceremony in Daytona Beach at a hotel can be a huge saving for you. On top of the savings of having a destination beach wedding, you will find that choosing one of our Daytona Beach Wedding Packages will not only be cheaper than having a ceremony through your hotel, but will also give you beautiful decor. Some hotels charge more than our most expensive Daytona Beach wedding package, and give you nothing but a couple of chairs! Save money and get more with our beach wedding packages. 

Crowds– While hotel weddings in Daytona Beach do take place in less secluded beaches, the guests are courteous and will be in awe of your beautiful Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony. There is nothing quite like having the guests cheer for your from the distance of the pool deck as you officially start your new life together.

Less stress– We do our best to make your Daytona beach wedding ceremony as stress free as possible. However, having one of our Hotel weddings in Daytona Beach can eliminate a whole other level of stress. Forget about coordinating transportation, providing directions, worrying about where to go on the beach, when you need to leave to arrive on time, traffic and so much more. Get an ocean view room and easily be able to see your Daytona beach wedding ceremony setup on the beach outside of your hotel, so you know exactly where we will be.

Mini vacation– Many hotels around Florida will claim to be “on the beach”. However, with long walkways and sometimes even roads blocking you to the beach, you really aren’t truly oceanfront. There are a wide variety of hotels directly on the beach. This makes it easy for you and your guests to truly enjoy all the beach has to offer. With pool decks overlooking the ocean, and just a quick walk across the pool deck until your toes hit the sand, it is easy and convenient to soak up as much time on the beach as possible (but don’t forget your sunscreen!). Your guests, especially those with kids, will love the convenience and easy access of getting to the ocean. You and your guests can also kick back, have a meal or a drink on the pool deck and enjoy the cool ocean breeze, views of the ocean, and get a true feel for paradise.

Daytona Beach Wedding Ideas

Daytona Beach Wedding ideas 

Are you thinking of having a Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony? We have compiled a list of our top 5 favorite Daytona Beach Wedding ideas for your destination Florida beach wedding ceremony with us. 

  1. Chalkboard hashtag sign- Coming up with your own unique and fun hashtag has been a growing trend in weddings. With all the beauty that your Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony will have, your guests won’t be able to help but snap away with their phones and cameras. Make sure you can easily see all the photos by letting them know your hashtag- after all, you did spend days coming up with the perfect wedding hashtag! This is also a great way to look back at photos on your anniversaries. 
  2. Salt Water Taffy Jars- We love the idea of including salt water taffy into your Daytona Beach Wedding. Whether you have a little jar for each couple at the ceremony or welcome gifts at the hotel for your guests. These jars will make the perfect addition to get the true beach wedding feel to your Florida beach wedding ceremony. 
  3. Take Advantage of the Scenery- The beaches of Daytona have many beautiful spots for wedding photos. We highly recommend hiring Forever in Love Photos if you plan to take full advantage of the scenery. With beautiful wooden walkways, views of the lighthouse, and even photos on the jetty for your adventurous side, you can rest assured that you will be able to show off the most beautiful beaches back home. 
  4. Add a first dance under the bamboo canopy- Of all of our Daytona Beach Wedding ideas, adding a first dance has to be one of our favorites. Did you know that with all of our Daytona Beach Wedding packages you can add a first dance to the song of your choice under the bamboo canopy? Can you imagine a more romantic place to share your first dance? This is especially great for couples who will not be having a traditional wedding reception and this may be your only chance to share a first dance in front of your friends and family. 
  5. Beach Sand for your Sand Ceremony- All of our Daytona Beach Wedding packages include a sand ceremony, where you and your significant other will blend 2 sand colors into one jar signifying the joining of your lives. We love the option of taking the sand right from where you stood at your Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony as one of your sand choices. This will make the sand ceremony even more special.
