Daytona Beach Weddings

What makes a Daytona Beach wedding so special? Not only is it our most affordable wedding location in Florida, it is one of the best locations on the East Coast for your destination wedding. The beautiful sun and sea, the white waves of the Atlantic Ocean and natural dunes make your ceremony and pictures unforgettable. The “golden hour” with soft pink sunsets is a time of day you won’t want to miss.

With our most affordable all-inclusive wedding packages, reasonably priced hotels, and affordable dining options, you can have your dream wedding without breaking the bank. Also, in most cases there are no permit fees, keeping your costs low. 

If you are looking for ease, we may be able to perform your ceremony on the beach in front of your hotel. You can get ready and simply walk down to the beachfront ceremony where your wedding officiant and guests will be waiting. Afterward, return to your hotel for a wedding reception. Eliminating travel keeps your wedding day even more stress free. 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 and the water park, then take part in some of the Daytona Speedway experiences, spend a day at the outlets shopping and more. It is also just a short drive to Orlando: home of Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, unique dining, and endless entertainment.

My wedding was everything I dreamed it would be, thanks to Pam and her company! The whole ceremony site was set up just the way I wanted it. It was truly beautiful. My pictures came out great as well. Making the decision to have Pam do my wedding was the best decision I made.

Hotels for your Daytona Beach Destination Wedding

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. 
Daytona Beach Weddings at the shores resort and spa hotel on the beach

Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa

The Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa is one of the largest hotels on the beachfront 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 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 Beach House Wedding Venues

Once your wedding date is reserved with us, we can recommend local private homes directly on the beachfront. The house shown above is the Toronita Surf Club which has an amazing pool deck overlooking the ocean where we could perform your intimate beach ceremony. It offers a fire pit overlooking the ocean, plenty of bedrooms, hammocks and more at a reasonable price. If you want to have a true pool party wedding reception, you can even opt for a morning wedding on the beach to truly enjoy a full oceanfront day with friends and family.

Chart House Daytona Beach

Chart House Daytona Beach is an upscale and fine dining restaurant on the river. If you plan to elope in Florida, look no further for the perfect wedding dinner. The sunset views are breathtaking. This will be the perfect ending to a perfect wedding day. We do recommend keeping this to small elopements as it is a pricey restaurant.

Daytona Beach average weather temperatures

What is the best month to have a Beach Wedding? 

Winter: Weddings during the winter month will be something you look forward to. Daytona is truly a piece of paradise with the warm winters. 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 sun and the sea. 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 get married on the beach!
