The beaches of Florida offer a perfect backdrop for
outdoor weddings. The coast of Florida is characterized
by white sand, bright blue water, and well-manicured parks
with palm trees and grass. Florida beach weddings can
take place at one of the all inclusive Florida
resorts or an secluded location on the beach. There
are many companies that offer beach wedding packages in
Florida, in destinations such as Key
West, South Beach, and Venice Beach. Beach wedding
packages in Florida will include most of the details that
go into planning beach weddings in Florida, from the transportation to Florida to the honeymoon following the wedding.
One advantage of having Florida Beach weddings is being able to have your honeymoon immediately following the wedding. There is no need to take extra time to travel to your honeymoon destination following the wedding because you will already be there! Many Florida resorts offer special incentives for honeymooners, such as room upgrades and complimentary champagne. You might save even more on beach weddings in Florida if you use the same hotel for your wedding reception and honeymoon.
Many of the large hotels in Florida have large facilities that can accommodate Florida beach weddings of any size. Depending on how large the hotel is, most will have a team of wedding coordinators that will help you select flowers, seating arrangements, music, food, and all of the details of the ceremony and wedding reception. They usually offer a reduced rate for hotel rooms for you and your spouse as well as your guests.
There are a few legal requirements that need to be met in order to get married in Florida. The marriage license needs to be applied for in person at a local courthouse or town hall. Once you've decided on where you want to get married, call the city clerk's office and find out where to go to obtain a marriage license. The form requires that you present a legal birth certificate, passport, or driver's license. If you aren't a resident of Florida, there is no waiting period between applying for the license and making it official. In fact, many people fly down to Florida and get married immediately after receiving their license. If you're a Florida resident, you must wait for three days after receiving your license to get married. This can be waived by taking a four-hour marriage course. After the ceremony, both spouses and a witness must sign the marriage license. Even if you're considering purchasing one of the beach wedding packages in Florida, you should note that the packages don't include the marriage license.
The best place for Florida beach weddings depends on
your style. If you wish to avoid overcrowded beaches,
avoid the beaches in the Miami and South Beach area. These Florida
beaches, while beautiful, can be especially crowded
in the winter. Key West, a scenic chain of islands in
south Florida, offers some of the most beautiful and private
settings for beach weddings in Florida. With the proper
planning, Florida beach weddings can create wedding memories
that will last a lifetime.
