The Very First Thing You Need to Know

Florida beach weddings are popular. People from across the US use Florida as their destination wedding location because they are almost guaranteed to have a beautiful day for their wedding. They don’t call it “Sunny Florida” for nothing, and with the recent social distancing recommendations, smaller, outdoor weddings are more popular than ever. Therefore, the first thing you need to know about getting married on the beach is that you should book early. The sooner you book your date, the less stress there will be. Once you have your date locked in than you can start your planning full force.

You want to always keep an eye on the weather. It is important that you know what to expect, and if changes need to be made to your plans, they can be made ahead of time. It is always a good idea with any beach wedding to have alternate plans just in case the weather is not cooperative on your big day. While Florida experiences the most sunny, warm weather, you do want to have a plan B in place just to be safe. Most beach wedding venues have optional indoor spaces or outdoor pavilions that you can use if you must. Your Beach Wedding Specialist will help you with this plan.

Let the beach wedding venue know if there are any special accommodations that are needed for anyone that is disabled. It is important that you alert the venue if anyone in your party is in a wheelchair or needs other accommodations. Again your Beach Wedding Specialist can assist you with this.

Number 5

Plan everything. Plan the amount of time it will take you to get ready: the experts say do not get dressed until 35-45 minutes before the wedding ceremony. Plan your transportation while you are in town. Share your plans with your guests so they know when to arrive. Plan EVERY detail so that your beach themed wedding will come together perfectly. Remember you can choose any of the Tampa Florida beaches or Orlando beaches. We want to help with your plans so contact us today to book your Florida date!
