Not only are Florida beaches relaxing and picture perfect, several are named in the top 25 Beaches by the 2018 Traveler's Choice Awards.
Our very own Clearwater Beach took top honors for its sugar fine white sand and dolphin sightings. Not far behind were Siesta and St. Pete Beach, with all the gorgeous gulf front views you may be wondering why you haven't already started to plan the perfect beach wedding.
1.It's Simple. Most beach weddings have pre-designed wedding packages that are easily coordinated and customization. Swap white folding chairs for chiavari chairs, shoes optional, have your ceremony on the beach or a separate destination. All of these items are easily adjusted and not difficult to orchestrate as you already have the most stunning venue.
2. It's Relaxing.Weddings are notorious for being stressful and overwhelming. Remove all this unnecessary stress by just going to the beach. Escape the stuffy indoor ceremony and reception venues and opt for Mother Nature's natural scenery. Not only will the continuous sound of waves lapping in and out calm your nerves, it will also allow your guests to enjoy the moment and really be present for your big day.
3. It's Affordable. Beach weddings are affordable. Break free of required minimums and hefty decoration costs. There isn't much required in order to make some of the nations top beaches prettier. Throw in some extra flowers, maybe an arch paired with your classic wedding dress and that's about all the decoration needed to plan your dream beach ceremony.
Local brides are fortunate to have the option to plan a beach wedding so close to where they call home. Florida beaches are world renowned, why not plan someone's version of a destination wedding in your back yard?
