Beach weddings on the Gulf of Mexico are affordable, fun, and relaxing. You get glistening blue water and a white sandy shoreline as the back drop for your wedding ceremony compliments of mother nature, especially in locations like Fort Myers, Siesta Key or Clearwater. But what can you do to make your beach wedding extra special? How do you add your personal touch? The Florida Beach Weddings company has over twelve years of experience perfecting the classic beach wedding look and we love discovering new ocean-inspired beach wedding decorations. Elopements, vow renewals, wedding parties both large and small, we have the beach wedding set up for you. But let’s take this a step further and add another layer of uniqueness, and fun.

 Personalize Your Beach Wedding with these Simple Ideas

Before the Wedding: If you have guests traveling from out of town or this is a destination wedding near Tampa, Florida, nothing says, “Welcome to my Beach Wedding” better than a beach-themed welcome bag. Set the tone for your paradise wedding weekend and make your guests feel extra special. What to put in it? How about a handwritten welcome note, a snack, mini-sunscreen or bug spray, sunglasses, hand cream or even a mini-umbrella.
