Clearwater Beach Wedding Permits
Clearwater Beach is a very popular beach and does require a beach wedding permit in order to be able to be married on their long stretch of beach. There are 6 spots along their stretch of beach that allow reservations for a beach wedding. The wedding permits are approved for a one hour time frame. Two hours for set up, one for the actual ceremony, and one for the breakdown of your beach wedding setting. The fee is 100.00 on any day of the week. Holiday weddings are not allowed at this beach, so there are exceptions. They only allow one wedding per spot per day to be reserved for a beach wedding, so please keep this in mind and reserve your beach wedding package early. There are two spots we frequently use which are preferred by many couples due to the landscape and a little further away from the main crowds. The time to process your beach wedding permit varies as to how back logged the permit office is. It may take a few days to a week or more. Cherished Ceremonies will process your permit as a courtesy, we make it simple for you!

Some couples have a reception to run to after the beach ceremony so this fits right in with their plans.
