The Finishing Touches You Need for a Perfect Beach Wedding

You’ve got the ring and your partner, and you know you want a Florida beach ceremony, but you still need to put the proverbial “icing” on your wedding day. With the buzzing energy around wedding planning, stress levels can run high and some details might be missed. Use our tips and tricks to ease your mind and leave you with beautiful, life-long memories of your perfect day.

Invitations

The days of sending traditional save-the-dates and following up with formal invitations are over. Most couples are opting for an eco- and budget-friendly one-and-done approach to wedding invites. Ask your guests to digitally RSVP on sites like www.zola.com. This app allows you to create an entire website with your wedding details, registry, and cash funds. Their handy checklists make sure you don’t miss a thing.

Decor

With a Florida beach wedding, you don’t have to overthink your wedding decor. Our ocean-side venues already have all the natural beauty you could need. Opt for simple, minimal touches. Here is some inspiration from our previous brides who used custom wooden signs, keep-sake pineapples, and rustic lanterns with a feminine touch. For flowers, our brides and grooms have opted for both subtle hues and bright blooms. Pick what works for you! You can tie these elements together in your wedding altar arrangement.

Favors

With a Florida beach wedding, you definitely don’t need to overthink (or overspend on) wedding keepsakes. Take a cue from our couples who gave away fun coastal-inspired gifts like these Koozies, bottle openers, beach towels, and sunglasses. From poppin’ bottles to having fun in the sun and sand, your wedding guests will carry the party with them from the beach and beyond.

Beauty

Your ceremony and reception are picture-perfect, now what about sprucing up the bride or groom? A lot of our brides prefer bare feet and sandals for their stroll down the sandy aisle. Our grooms pick footwear that will take them from the beach to the dancefloor. Our couples keep hair and makeup simple for their outdoor weddings. Add a special nautical touch with your dress and suit designs or keep it casual in cargo shorts and button downs. That’s the beauty of a Florida beach wedding, you make it your own!
