There are so many quizzes out there that you can take to determine your wedding style: are you modern, rustic, classic, natural? However, there is still one category missing: beach weddings. Certainly, our Florida Beach Weddings company can accommodate all the styles listed above (and more) but choosing the beachfront venue is often the hardest part of the destination wedding planning process. Why? Simply because there are so many beach locations to choose from in Florida and they all have different features and vibes!

Tropical Vibe for Lively Beach Couple

Clearwater Beach has soft, beautiful sand and vibrant water. Many visitors report this area, as well as St. Pete Beach, features a “younger vibe” and offers recreation at your fingertips. Boat rides are available from the marina, jet ski rentals, speedboats, dolphin sighting cruises, and sunset party cruises. There is no shortage of things to do in at a Gulf of Mexico wedding in Clearwater! The couple below customized our Destiny wedding package to their color theme and you can too.

Silvery Sand for Active Couples

The Daytona Beach area on the Atlantic Ocean extend several miles along the coast and offers the perfect beach environment for biking, walking and jogging. The beaches are wide with firmly packed sand that is perfect for any activity, as well as being pretty with sunny skies. This is your best budget bet for a cheap beach wedding in Florida.

When the tide is out, there are little lagoon areas which children can play in or couples in love can lounge in. In many areas down the coast, such as Wilbur-By-The-Sea, you can find  silver, white sand dunes that provide a stunning backdrop for beach wedding photographs. This is a great beach for families: there is always something going on that is great for kids. Romantic couples can dine, shop and swim together after their beach wedding and have an enjoyable honeymoon.

Big Waves and Cruising (when it returns)

Cocoa Beach is the closest beach to Orlando and it is famous for surfing and the Kennedy Space Center. Again, a wonderful choice for families to enjoy tons of activities near the ocean. The sand is darker but the blue ocean, greenery and quaint bridges add charm to this location for our brides. We marry couples in a beautiful park that results in unforgettable wedding pictures. Once cruising returns this is the beach you want to get married on before you set sail.
