What makes Daytona Beach weddings so special? Not only it our most affordable wedding location in Florida, it is also one of the best locations on the East Coast for your destination wedding in Florida. The beautiful sun and sea, the white waves of the Atlantic Ocean and natural dunes add a tropical feel, making your ceremony and pictures unforgettable. With some of the cleanest and bluest water on the East Coast of Florida and light sand, Daytona Beach is a favorite wedding venue among our couples.

If you are looking for ease, we have a list of hotels where you can have your beach wedding ceremony with us at. You can get ready at your hotel and simply walk down to the ceremony where your Daytona Beach wedding officiant and guests will be waiting. Eliminating the travel keeps your ceremony even more stress free. There are also many unique dining locations for you and your guests to enjoy for your wedding reception. Our dedicated wedding planners are ready to help you plan your special day!
Daytona Beach is a fun-filled experience, especially if you will be traveling with kids. Enjoy the beautiful beaches, take part in some of the Daytona Speedway experiences, spend a day at the outlets shopping and more.

Hotels for your Daytona Beach Wedding Ceremony
Deciding where to stay for your Daytona Beach Wedding destination can be one of the hardest choices when planning your wedding venue. Depending on the beach wedding package of your choice, we may be able to perform your wedding ceremony directly behind your hotel if it is directly on the beach. While this is a great option for eliminating travel, the beaches do tend to be busier behind hotels. We recommend this option for the “off season” months, smaller beach wedding packages and weekday weddings.
The Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa is one of the largest hotels on the beach in Daytona. With an amazing pool deck complete with evening s’mores, an outdoor heated pool, a kiddie pool, restaurant inside for easy dining options, the ability to have your reception there and more, this is a great choice. We recommend having your beach wedding at this location during the “off season”, weekdays or for smaller weddings. The beach can get busy behind the hotel, umbrellas may be setup and there is driving on the beach.
Private Homes for your Daytona Beach Wedding
If you will be having a more intimate or small wedding, a private home should be the first choice on your list. Once your wedding date is reserved with us, we have recommendations for local private homes directly on the beach where we can perform your beach wedding ceremony. The house shown above has an amazing pool deck overlooking the ocean where we would perform your ceremony, a fire pit overlooking the ocean, plenty of bedrooms, hammocks and more. This would be a great place to get ready, enjoy your day and have a relaxing reception following your ceremony. If you want to have a true pool party reception, you can even opt for a morning beach wedding ceremony to truly enjoy a full beach day reception.
Wilbur Beach is our go to choice for your wedding in Daytona Beach. This is one of the few beaches in the area that doesn’t have driving on the beach, has a large parking lot making it great for all wedding sizes and doesn’t have vendors on the beach (umbrella and chair rentals, ice cream trucks, etc.). Parking is free and plenty, making this easy and convenient for you to say your vows with your guests.
Ponce Inlet Beach Weddings are complete with wooden walkways, beautiful dunes, and views of the lighthouse in the distance. We recommend adding adding our exclusive wedding photographer, Forever in Love Photography, to really experience all that Ponce Inlet has to offer. We recommend this area for weekday and small beach weddings. There is an entry fee per car to enter the park, and parking is limited. There is driving on the beach at this location as well.
Reception Venues for your Daytona Beach Wedding
Caribbean Jacks has beautiful sunset and river views for your Daytona Beach wedding reception. Complete with private dining options, unique drinks, fresh seafood and an unforgettable experience, you can’t go wrong. Our couples love continuing their celebration at Caribbean Jacks to keep the Florida Beach theme going from their ceremony to their reception. Take your guests on an adventure and let them truly enjoy all Florida has to offer for your wedding day.
Chart House Daytona Beach is an upscale and fine dining restaurant on the river. If you plan to elope, look no further for the perfect wedding dinner. The food is unlike any other around and the sunset views are breathtaking. This will be the perfect ending to a perfect day. We do recommend keeping this to small elopements as it is a pricey restaurant.
When is the best time for a Daytona Beach Wedding?
Winter: Weddings during the winter month will be something you look forward to. As you can see, Daytona is truly a piece of paradise with the warm winters. You and your guests will enjoy escaping the cold and possibly even the snow to vacation on the beaches in Florida. You and your guests will love the break from harsh winters and truly enjoy a slice of paradise.
Spring: The spring is one of the most beautiful times. With more sunshine than the winter, you will get to truly enjoy some beautiful beach days while visiting.
Summer: Summer is the ideal choice for vacationers. While the days can be hot, we perform our weddings in the late evening to avoid as much heat as possible. Summer will allow you to truly enjoy the sunshine and ocean. The Atlantic Ocean can be too cold for most swimmers during the early spring. So, if you are looking to take a true beach vacation, summer is the month for you.
Fall: Fall weddings consist of the perfect weather. Not too hot and not too cold. The beaches also tend to be less busy as school is back in session and there are no major breaks or holidays to crowd the beaches. A perfect time to enjoy the sun and sea!
