Affordable Florida Beach Weddings and Receptions on a Budget Can Be Planned from out of State

Florida beach wedding packages simplify the planning process and can also be booked for beach vow renewals.


Treasure Island, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/20/2021 --Planning a Florida beach wedding and reception or vow renewal on the shore is often a way to combine a vacation with a celebration. Friends and family from out of state or outside the US fly in for a week or two in Florida, with the big day an integral part of the planning. Couples and their guests typically fly or drive to Florida a few days before the ceremony to relax and adjust to the jet lag if they have come from overseas. For families who have not met before, this is the perfect time to exchange anecdotes and stories so that everyone knows each other in time for the "I Do's". One of the most popular wedding signs that can be rented from Suncoast Weddings says "Two families are becoming one, so choose a seat, not a side". This is a reference to the tradition of seating one family on one side of the aisle and the other on the opposite side. Instead, the sign asks everyone to sit wherever they choose as everyone will be in one big family after the vows. Without the restrictions of a traditional venue, other seating plans can also be considered like a spiral, a semi-circle, or a full circle enclosing the arch.

One couple chose to have their chairs arranged in the shape of the Big Dipper constellation as it held a special significance to their love story. There are a couple of traditional ways to gather when planning the wedding or vow renewal, one is a rehearsal dinner typically the night before the vows, the other is a rehearsal of the wedding ceremony at the wedding location. This is a time when bridesmaids and groomsmen can practice which side they will be walking down the aisle, and what signals will be given by the wedding planner to let everyone know when it is their turn to start walking down the aisle. This is typically a time with lots of laughs, although it does also quell the nerves, especially if there is a large wedding party or if there are children involved and they are a bit daunted by their upcoming starring role as ring bearer or flower girl. Suncoast Weddings, premier wedding planners on Florida's west coast, are based in Treasure Island and perform beach weddings, vow renewals, elopements, and empowerment ceremonies on the beaches between Clearwater to the north and Sarasota to the south. Rehearsals can be added to any of the beach wedding packages which are designed to take the guesswork out of planning, whilst bundling and saving elements for an overall cost saving compared to building a wedding a la carte.

Keeping one total for the costs helps with budget planning if a reception is planned too. Receptions could be on the shore, indoors, or in a pavilion, with beach house weddings typically using the back yard as a reception space if the back yard is large enough to accommodate the guests. The dance floor may be sandy and just steps from the Gulf of Mexico. Suncoast Weddings have a choice of venues, menus, and price points. They are also a great resource for finding the best local vendors, from florists to DJs, and from wedding cake bakers to make-up artists and hairstylists. With years of experience working in and around the Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, Clearwater Beach, and Sand Key area, they are able to secure the best deals from the finest local providers. They are also able to help advise on local restaurants, entertainment for the family, local attractions, and accommodation.

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. 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.
