Treasure Island, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/15/2023 --Now that 'engagement season' is officially underway, newly engaged couples start the planning process to set a date and say "I Do". For some, the planning and lead time can be in the order of months or even over a year, whereas others choose to plan a wedding day in the near future. With traditional venues, a short lead time can be a problem, as some popular venues may be booked a long time in advance, particularly when the day chosen coincides with a weekend or a holiday. Planning a beach wedding can be simpler as securing a location at a particular time is as easy as getting a permit from the city if the beach is a public beach on Florida's west coast. Couples have many choices over which particular location they want for their beach wedding and securing the permit is a sure way to comply with local rules as well as making sure that nobody else will be using that venue at that time. Florida beach wedding packages by Suncoast Weddings, premier wedding planners on Florida's west coast, are designed to take much of the guesswork out of the planning process. Couples are invited to participate as much as they want to, ranging from leaving all of the details to the Suncoast Weddings team, to making each decision on the details for the big day. Logistics include what type of arch to use - Suncoast Weddings have a two-post birch wood arch, a two-post bamboo arch known as the Suncoast arch, and a four-post bamboo arch known as the tropical arch. Some couples, who may want a very simple ceremony with no arch, can opt for a heart of fresh rose petals in the sand or no decor with the 'Toes in the sand' package. One of the details that sets Suncoast Weddings apart from others is the ability to customize and tailor a package so that it aligns with a particular theme. Themes are commonly based around a color scheme or a particular type of flower, however, themed weddings can revolve around mermaids, superheroes, Halloween, fancy dress, or a favorite sport. It is also possible to weave elements from a traditional wedding into a beach wedding and the reception. Confetti is not allowed on the beach as it is bad for the environment, fun alternatives that tip a nod to the tradition of throwing confetti but are environmentally friendly include throwing beach balls instead as the couple walk back down the aisle, or blowing bubbles, with small bottles being left on the chairs for family and friends so they are ready for the end of the ceremony. One of the traditions of a wedding reception is to cut the cake. A light-hearted and practical way to stick with tradition and add a modern twist is to have a small top tier of cake to cut, with a cupcake tower stacked on tiers beneath. This perfectly portions cake for guests and offers a good opportunity to follow the theme of the wedding when frosting can be added in the chosen colors.
One of the most important decisions to make when planning a beach wedding is the 'where and when'. Once that is agreed and the permit has been granted, the rest of the details can be locked down as the day approaches. With detailed planning coordinated by Suncoast Weddings, details such as the type of aisle decor, the color of the sashes on the chairs, the music that will be played throughout the ceremony, the number and arrangement of chairs, the colors of the sand for the unity sand ceremony, beach wedding signs around the ceremony space, and last minute additions like a crystal drape, chandelier, or palm trees to surround the arch, can all be adjusted and tracked.
With so many images to browse on the Suncoast Weddings website and social media, some couples see an image from a previous ceremony and ask that their ceremony match that. Couples can also request various elements from different prior weddings to be brought together for their big day. Sharing an idea with an image can speed up the discussions rather than trying to explain everything verbally, a picture is worth a thousand words!
All ceremonies can be tailored with Suncoast Weddings, to individualize the decor and details. From small ceremonies for couples looking at eloping in Florida to lavish ceremonies with a hundred guests, ceremonies can be made to be unique.
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 and reception packages 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 that 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.
