Florida Vow Renewals and Florida Beach Weddings on a Budget can include a traditional or beachside reception
Treasure Island, FL — (ReleaseWire) — 04/25/2022 — Beach weddings are a popular choice for couples looking for a stress-free day with nature providing the backdrop. The west coast of Florida is a popular choice in particular because of the sunsets, so not surprisingly, sunset is the most popular time of day for couples to say “I Do”. When looking to plan a sunset wedding, using the published sunset time as the ceremony time is not ideal, for although the pictures when the vows are being said may have the setting sun as a backdrop, subsequent pictures will be dark as the light has already faded. The ideal time to plan a ceremony for great sunset portraits is about one hour before the published sunset time, depending on how big the wedding party is. For particularly large groups when there will be a longer session of group photographs, slightly over an hour should be allowed for the ceremony and congratulations and the portraits of the wedding party and the couple with their family and friends. By doing this, the couple is free to walk down to the water’s edge as the sun is setting for the “Golden Hour” portraits. If the couple has any special requests during the ceremony like a recital, live music, or reading their own vows, these details should be shared with the wedding planners in advance so the detailed timeline can be worked out. Other considerations include accessibility and the distance the wedding party may have to walk out to the arch on the beach, as well as the proximity to parking spaces. Doing a rehearsal the day before the wedding enables the couple and their wedding party to familiarize themselves with the location and work out where cars can be parked. For larger wedding parties, the rehearsal is also the perfect opportunity to practice the processional and understand who will walk with who in which order down the aisle. This is the perfect time to get rid of any jitters and often acts as the lead-in to a pre-wedding dinner where it may be the first time members of the two families have met each other, especially if the destination wedding is bringing together two families from different states or even countries. Another way to ‘break the ice’ on the day of the wedding for family and friends who do not know each other well is to abandon the tradition of seating families on opposite sides of the aisle, and instead invite guests to mix and mingle. Suncoast Weddings, premier wedding planners based in Treasure Island on the west coast of Florida, frequently rent out beach wedding signs as part of their wedding packages. The most popular sign reads “Today two families are becoming one, Pick a seat, not a side.” They also have a wide range of other signs and decor items which can be chosen as part of a beach wedding package or as part of an a la carte beach wedding. Another popular trend is to host an unplugged beach wedding, where guests are invited to be fully present with the couple as they celebrate and switch off their cell phones and cameras. Adding a reception to the wedding package to make a joint wedding and reception package with Suncoast Weddings extends the celebration and can help with budget planning as combined costs can be presented in one simple to understand proposal. With one point of contact at Suncoast Weddings to coordinate any last-minute changes in the number of guests or dietary requirements, there is a further opportunity to simplify the arrangements and reduce the stress in planning, making the run-up to the wedding or vow renewal a pleasure as opposed to a chore.
Permits are required at most public beaches and should be submitted for approval as early as possible in the planning process to make sure that the location and date can be secured. Suncoast Weddings can help with the permit application process and will add the cost of the permit to the personalized proposal, as the cost varies from city to city.
Florida Beach Weddings on a budget may start with a search for cheap beach wedding packages however there are many other outgoings that need to be tallied, like the dress, the travel budget, and certainly the reception. Affordable Florida beach wedding Packages typically take several elements of the ceremony and offer them at a reduced price when compared to building the wedding from scratch. This effectively ‘bundles and saves’ which offers the best value for money for the services delivered. Planning the wedding and reception together as part of a package helps to keep the costs totaled in one place and easier to track. A popular alternative to a traditional reception is a dinner cruise reception sailing the inland waterways around St Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, and Clearwater. This affords a great view of the dramatic and ever-changing scenery as the wedding party enjoys the reception fare. With a choice of paddleboats and sleek modern boats, couples can choose a package and location which suits their style and budget.
Treasure Island Weddings, St Pete Beach weddings, Siesta Key weddings, and Clearwater beach weddings boast spectacular sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico, perfect for couples who want sunset wedding day portraits. Florida beach weddings and reception packages can be purchased which include the ceremony and also the party to follow. This may include items such as a DJ, a custom-made cake, a coordinator for the wedding, and a professional beach wedding photographer.
