A beach wedding?! What a dream!! A dress, the groom, and the water! That’s all I need right?! Well, not exactly.
Getting married on the beach is a little more complex than you would think. But, with a little guidance from a planner who knows the ropes of a beach wedding, it’s all smooth sailing from there.
Currently, our favorite and most romantic beach wedding destination is Destin, Florida! There are several different locations ranging from ceremony to reception and everything in between when we are talking about a Destin wedding. Assuming you want to get married on the shoreline, a big thing to consider is rentals. In most cases, you’ll want some kind of arch and chairs for your guests. Fortunately, Mint Events has some friends in Destin for all of the support to make it absolutely seamless.
Next, cocktail hour and reception. There are a few places for a Destin wedding that you can choose that offer the beach ceremony location, with a beautiful cocktail hour and reception space that is within walking distance of the beach. They do book out at least a year in advance and the process can be a little tricky, especially if we are talking about a destination wedding. But that is another area that we happen to be very familiar with.
Last, but quite possibly the most important, ins and outs of permits and marriage licensing for a Destin wedding. This is very dependent on many factors, like if you live in Florida or are doing destination, and what property of the beach you choose to be married on. Different beaches require a permit from the state, some venues offer permits included with packages, and in some circumstances, you have to file with the county.
Now, I know this seems like a lot. But we can’t tell you enough how absolutely worth it a Destin wedding is. With Mint Events, it will be the dreamiest walk into the sunset anyone could dream of.
