We'll talk specifically about this, but we like to mention it so you can plan for this in your travel and deciding on what day you want your wedding.

How to Plan Your Beach Wedding

What are the steps for planning a destination wedding at the beach?

  • Welcome to Florida Sign

    When would you like to come to the beach?

    Consider a date range to get started. Not sure of when you'd like to visit? Spring, Summer, and Fall are all great. December, January, and February can be a little cold, but still beautiful.

  • White Sand Beach

    What Beach Town would you like to Visit?

    All of the beaches here are beautiful! Each beach community has it's own style and character. ​We're up in the Panhandle of Florida, the Northwest portion on the Gulf of Mexico that's under Alabama.

    We cover from Mexico Beach, Panama City Beach, 30a, through Destin, Okaloosa Island (Fort Walton Beach), Navarre, and Pensacola Beach to the West.

  • Names Written in Sand

    Pick a Date!

    Choose a date that you want to get married! When picking your date, consider that you'll have to get your Florida Marriage License before your wedding. It's a simple process. Click "learn more" to read about the details. We're available any day of the week, not just the traditional Saturdays. Once you know your date, reserve it with a wedding company like us!

  • Bride escorted by Father

    Find Lodging

    Now that you know when you'll be here and what day your wedding is, it's time to find your lodging.

    Do you want a beach house, condo, hotel? There are lots of options in a range of prices in our area, use our vendor list for ideas or stay somewhere familiar if you've been here before.

    Once we know where you're staying, we'll use our knowledge of the area to make a recommendation on the best spot for your wedding. We think having your wedding right where you're staying or as close as possible is ideal. When looking at lodging on the beach, you'll always want to ask if weddings are allowed and if there's a fee.

  • Rose Bouquet

    Wedding Details

    We provide the things needed for the ceremony itself. Officiant for the ceremony, photography, decoration, and ceremony coordination. You may want fresh bouquets and boutonnières and a hair or makeup stylist. Use our vendor list to get suggestions for this and more..

  • Newlyweds Dancing

    Fun with your Guests!

    You have most of your plans in place, what are you planning for after the ceremony? The beach wedding doesn't have to be as traditional as plans back home.

    Many couples reserve space at a local restaurant, some have a party on the beach. Use your rental to host a party, most condos have party rooms they'll rent or include.

    You can choose how much of this you'd like to do yourself or hire people to help you. Once again, our vendor list has ideas for these services.

  • You Did It!
    Enjoy
    The Beach!
