true or false beach wedding


1. Destination Beach Weddings are affordable. 


Our beach wedding packages begin at $699 and that include EVERYTHING you need for your beach wedding ceremony. Not sure what that means? Check out this packages page for a clear and detailed description of all that entails (think officiant, photographer, set up, break down…). And the top end packages cap out around $2,500 (with photography). We’re talking all the bells and whistles and high guest count. Now if that doesn’t say affordable wedding budget, then I don’t know what does. Try Daytona Beach: it’s the most affordable option!


2. Destination Beach Weddings are hard to plan.


Our Florida Beach Weddings Company has been in business for over a decade. At night, we dream about ocean tides, sand ceremonies, and perfect wedding photo ops. 🙂 Wedding planning is our native language. So all inclusive beach wedding planning means just that. You and your guests show up and we do the rest. We make it easy for you to plan everything from the comfort of your home. After you have reserved your wedding date, you will receive the link to your private client portal. This portal is unique for each bride and will include all of your important documents such as: your contract, selections worksheet, invoices, optional additions and more. With easy and convenient e-signature on all items, planning a beach wedding ceremony has never been easier. Your beach wedding coordinator is always available through email or phone. You can find a detailed description of everything we do by package HERE. With years of experience in the wedding business, we’ve scoped out the best beaches, set ups, ocean tides and permit regulations. 

3. Destination Beach Weddings are hot.


Okay, so yes, it’s Florida. Yes it gets hot. HOWEVER, the mild fall, winter, and pleasant spring all make for perfect beach weather. We don’t recommend a mid afternoon wedding in the middle of August, but the sunset hour is beautiful. And the ocean breeze on the east coast of Florida can cool even the hottest of days. So if you are set on a three piece suit and ball gown dress, consider any October-April date and you’ll be cool as can be! And if you’re a northern bride, kiss those winter boots, heavy coats, and snow shovels “bye-bye.” How about a nice pair of flip flops and sunglasses on any Florida winter day? Maybe even add a cruise after a Cocoa Beach wedding to experience the sun and sea!

4. Destination Beach Weddings Limit My Guest List


Come one, come all. Or, just the two of you: with our beach wedding options you have a choice! The great thing about a destination beach wedding is the pressure of the guest list is gone with the ocean breeze. Destination Beach Weddings are ideal for stress free elopements. But we also have packages for up to 50+ guests. So invite the whole gang or sneak away and exchange vows with views. You pick and there’s no pressure for who to invite or not.
