Affordable Florida Beach Weddings and Receptions on a Budget Include Beachfront Venues.
Treasure Island, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/23/2021 --Suncoast Weddings, premier wedding planners based on the west coast of Florida in Treasure Island, specialize in beach weddings, elopements, and vow renewals from Clearwater to the north to Sarasota to the south of their office. In addition to beach ceremonies, weddings can be arranged at other venues such as beach houses, yacht clubs, local parks, gardens, and recreation centers. Each venue has something unique to offer, some brides, for instance, want to be surrounded by water without the sandy setting, in this case, a recreation center on the intercoastal offers great views, the prospect of dolphin sightings, a venue which can host the wedding as well as the reception, and a solid path instead of the beach which can offer advantages such as improved accessibility for wheelchairs. Booking a reception in addition to the wedding is a way to extend the celebration into the evening typically, although breakfast and lunchtime receptions can also be arranged, and maybe easier to book at a venue at short notice, as the busiest times for weddings and receptions tend to be weekends, and holiday weekends in particular. Mid-week weddings, especially in the morning, will typically be easier to book in advance and the beach is likely to be less busy on the big day.
Another advantage of a morning wedding is the cooler temperature as well as the improved chances of getting beautiful blue Florida skies. Sunset remains the most popular time of the day for ceremonies, with a starting time of approximately one hour before the published sunset time being the perfect fit for a relaxed wedding followed by group portraits and then romantic portraits of the happy couple as golden hour leads to sunset, with the sun dipping over the horizon of the Gulf of Mexico. Booking the wedding and reception with one point of contact simplifies the process and also helps keep track of the budget as the grand total can be consolidated in one place. Suncoast Weddings offer a variety of beach wedding packages including their signature Suncoast package which includes (at time of publishing); a professional wedding minister, a specialist wedding photographer, an online photo album, 50 photo images of your choice on a photo CD with printing rights, ceremony music of your choice, their two-post bamboo arch draped in chiffon, accented to match your colors/theme, up to 10 white folding chairs, a custom aisle (straight or sweeping) lined with coordinating aisle markers, standard aisle markers include conch shells, sea-grass, starfish, tikis, tropical tikis at the beginning of the aisle, a Unity sand ceremony with keepsake bottle, a Wedding day ceremony coordinator from Suncoast Weddings, unlimited email, telephone, and personal wedding consultation, and complimentary filing of your marriage license.

Beach wedding signs are a popular choice as they add a personalized ambiance and welcome family and friends to the ceremony space.

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.
