Quick Guide: Beach Micro Weddings Made Easy

In 2020, the one thing COVID-19 hasn’t canceled is love. The micro-wedding trend that we blogged about earlier this year continues to pick up steam and will likely continue to grow as social distancing practices continue. Less than 50 guests, and more often 20, seems to be the new normal for weddings. On the Florida beaches, wedding ceremonies continue and your guests can feel comfortable attending an outdoor wedding. The bride and groom can save money at the same time since the package cost for a micro-wedding ranges from around $1100-2,500, depending on party size, beach venue and other customization. The average size of a traditional 2019 wedding was 131 guests and about $30,000 according to a survey by TheKnot.com. Why not consider a Florida destination wedding instead?

Couples who don’t want to put their weddings on hold or have a courthouse ceremony are considering their options for smaller weddings. With a micro wedding on a Florida beach, brides don’t have to give up their dreams of beautiful decorations, wedding arches and walking down an aisle. It’s a more intimate ceremony with fewer people, therefore couples can use more of their wedding budget for a memorable wedding and honeymoon.

Although many of our all-inclusive wedding packages will work for micro weddings, here are a few of our most popular:

Personalizing Your Beach Wedding Accessories

Accessories from head to toe (literally):

Hair Accessories: Have you chosen the perfect wedding hair style yet? Or maybe you are looking for your dream hair accessory as a spring board for your hair style. It’s best to stick with head bands or clips rather than veils. Even on a calm day, there is usually at least a slight seabreeze. And a windy day will leave you readjusting your veil to no avail (pardon the pun). Click the image for purchasing information.

 

 

Jewelry: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Maybe you have a cherished family necklace/ring/bracelet. Or maybe your mom/aunt/cousin/friend has the perfect beach accessory that you’ve been drooling over for years. Don’t be afraid to use your “something borrowed” card here. And we also have a few, just right beach jewels for that “something new.” Scroll down and click away!

Garter: Surprise your groom with one of these fun garters!

Did you meet your groom in college? Or maybe you have major school spirit. Check out these fun garters. Shown here: Gooo Gators (it’s only appropriate for a Florida destination beach wedding)!

 

Toes in the Sand: Well, we’ve made it all the way to the feet. Bare feet are fair game for a beach wedding. Or you could add a little sparkle with these fun barefoot sandals.
