Research indicates that the average wedding costs the same as a new car. When you add up the services required to make your wedding day at home special, it is not surprising that it can total over $20,000. That’s why the beach is the perfect choice for an affordable, beautiful and intimate ceremony. All the elements of a traditional ceremony can be included: elegant decor, vows, a wedding officiant, photographer, music…even your first dance as a married couple! Not to mention the cheap cost: Florida Beach Weddings packages start at $699 and at the top end average $2,500. Very affordable and with less stress!
The key here is the word “package”. Our beach wedding company packages all the things you need to make a perfect wedding ceremony for you. We do the work – not you. The hardest part is browsing each package online and choosing the one you love the most. We think you will love quite a few of our decor ideas, and you will definitely love the price!
Although we have all inclusive packages for small weddings and elopements, let’s take a look at a couple of our most popular, complete wedding packages so you can see how much it costs to get married on the beach:
The cost of the Rustic Romance Package before any extras you may wish to add to your package is about $1625. You may purchase extra chairs. Depending on where your ceremony takes place, a beach wedding permit is extra. This package is complete with a large, wooden canopy elegantly draped with flowing material and a cascading floral topper (Kayla in the photo below is holding only half of the topper!). Greenery aisle-way with wooden accents at the entrance add to the beauty of this package, and up to 18 deluxe white chairs at the ceremony site with your choice of colored spandex chair sash or 18 bamboo chairs included. There are more extras here.
The Nautical Knot Package price is about $1275 before any extras you may wish to add to your package. The wedding canopy consists of three bamboo poles (one on each side and one going across) draped in two of your color choices from our selections. You can decorate the aisle-way from your choice of tiki torches or natural bamboo poles: connected to each other by starfish or small white seashells, tropical tiki torches, or tropical or pastel flower garland placed in the sand. Up to 18 white deluxe chairs with you choice of optional spandex chair band from our selections are included. Find out more about this package here.
CLASSIC DISTINCTIVE DESIGN
The Classic Distinctive Design Package cost is around $2295.00 before any extras such as photography you may wish to add. These packages come with 32 chairs. There is an option to purchase extra chairs. There is a four post bamboo canopy with your choice of white or ivory draping. Elegant greenery with pink and white floral arrangements on the sides of the bamboo pole arches is part of the neutral decor. The bamboo pole aisle-way with coordinating white or ivory flowing material and coordinating flowers is a breathtaking touch. Many extras including a chilled water station for your guests can be found here.
Permit prices vary with beach locations. Let’s say you want to get married on the main beach in Siesta Key. There is a pavilion you may rent if you choose for an after ceremony reception, based upon availability. There are required beach wedding permits for that area in the amount of $185.00. We would obtain this for you and add the cost to your package price. We will also provide a recommendations list that will be in your welcome packet once you pay the deposit to reserve your package, location, date and time. Parking may be extra. In Clearwater Beach, the permit fee is $250 and you will likely have to deal with parking fees as well. Other beaches may be cheaper so if this cost is part of your budget, our beach wedding specialists can advise you on the best beach location for you.
All of the photographs you see on our website and social media are taken by our professional staff photographers. They are professionally trained for outside beach wedding photography conditions (light, mist, sunsets) to capture the perfect pictures of your special day. It is only $325 to add our ceremony photography to your day and includes up to one hour at the beach ceremony site. This will include the ceremony, followed by a group photo with the couple and all of the guests. Next, the couple and their immediate families. Then, we will take the bride and groom, and any bridal party down towards the sea, and take more poses, followed up by more poses of just the newly married couple. You can even get in the water with your dress!
