Beachside weddings conjure up images of the receptions that hit the highest heights of “high-end.” Luxurious, breath-taking and very clearly designed to break the bank, most of the shots you’ll see of beach weddings push the idea of every having one completely out of the minds of many interested couples—especially those on a budget.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way! Affordable beach weddings are completely possible and a growing business in south Florida. Weddings and wedding receptions are universal, and that means that the pricing for such an event has the ability to serve all budgets.
But it’s important to know that part of helping keep your budget in line is to do some research of your own! Contact wedding planners and ask about the differences in prices between various locations before you commit to any one beach.
It’s also enormously important to know how many guests you’re going to have. Contact everyone you intend to invite and get confirmations ahead of time. You’ll help cut down on a tremendous number of costs when you know you have around 50 confirmed guests as opposed to 300 invitations sent out with replies pending.
If you’re looking for an affordable beach wedding in Florida, be sure to run numbers on the prices for different beaches and look up images of weddings held across each of them. A famous beach may be picked for reasons beyond just beauty – many times, you may find a beach is chosen simply because so many other people have chosen it.
Don’t be afraid to go off the beaten path and opt for less common beaches. Likewise, be mindful of booking volumes—sometimes a popular destination is seeing a lull in reservations which could mean you’ve found yourself a steal!
Keep your eyes open for these sought after destinations, you never know when you’ll find one for a bargain. Some of the most popular Florida beach wedding locations are as follows:
- Hollywood Beach
- Fort Lauderdale Beach
- Pompano Beach
