About Cherished Ceremonies Weddings
Wedding planner and beach wedding specialist in Tampa Fl serving couples with services such as wedding planning, wedding coordinating, beach weddings, all inclusive wedding packages, wedding officiant services, wedding design and decor services, and more!
Planning a beach wedding in Florida and are undecided as to whether to keep it simple or make it elaborate? Many couples love the idea of just a basic beach wedding with just the Officiant and the back drop of the sunset for photography. Other couples want it all, the decor, the music, the flowers where guests will be amazed at the beach wedding setting. Here are a few tips to help you decide.
If you are low key and private, and hate the lime light, then an elopement on the beach may be perfect for you. Even more so, if you as a couple want to share this special day only with each other, then this would be your ideal wedding. If you fantasize about a dream beach wedding and love the luxury that would be yours on your wedding day, and cant wait to showcase your beautiful beach wedding with family and friends, then a simple elopement for two with the beach as your backdrop just will not do. The most important thing is to make it your day the way you imagine it to be.

One of the most common questions a beach wedding planner gets asked by couples is the best time to hold a beach wedding. The most popular time is at sunset when you have the beautiful sky as a backdrop with all the colors and depth a sunset can provide for your photography. The weather is cooler, there are less people on the beach, the humidity has lessened, and most of the time most of the rain has passed through by this time. Florida is known for Sunset Beach Weddings across the state, its just something provided by nature at no cost!!!! Having a beach wedding during the day is not recommended as the beach is crowded, the heat is stifling during the summer, and the humidity is relentless. Avoiding high noon and afternoons would be a good bet for beach weddings. The second most popular time is early in the morning a bit after sunrise, and these work out well before the crowds come on to the beach, the heat starts to rise, and people start to swelter. Florida beaches can be very hot during the summer months of May, June, July, and August, and cooler in the months of December, January and February, and temperate most of the year. The beach wedding should actually begin one hour prior to sunset time, giving you enough time for vows and then photography right around sunset. Please contact us for any questions you have planning your beach wedding and we will be happy to help you arrange a perfect beach wedding in Florida!
Are you a Gazebo Bride? Here are the top 5 questions to ask yourself to find out if you'll love saying I do in an all so romantic gazebo:
1. Do you imagine yourself getting married outdoors or indoors? If the answer is outdoors, you may be a gazebo bride! Many of our couples who dream about getting married outdoors love being surrounded by nature and imagine a garden like atmosphere for their wedding!
2. If you said yes to loving the outdoors, would you prefer the beach or do you prefer not to mix with surf and sand? If you enjoy collecting seashells or taking a stroll down the shore line, a gazebo ceremony might not be for you. However, if you love the melody of birds chirping, a canopy of trees, and a variety of different plants and flowers as your backdrop, a gazebo ceremony might just be the right fit!
3. Do you prefer a more intimate, private setting? Every beach in Florida is a public beach so there are no beaches that can be reserved privately. The gazebo locations are totally private, and there are no other weddings being performed at the time of your wedding which is a plus factor for some couples desiring an intimate setting.
No matter if you are a beach bride or a gazebo bride, Cherished Ceremonies has the experience and packages to make any dream wedding come true!

When a beach wedding package is purchased through us, brides and grooms are often confused as to what time of day it should be scheduled. The best time would be one hour prior to sunset in order to capture beautiful sunset pictures by the shore and give you enough time for the ceremony itself. If you are scheduling your beach wedding for the morning it should be early enough to stay away from the glare of the sun around noon time. The middle of the day is when the sun is most direct and may cause some issues with your photography. The sunsets here are beautiful, the weather is cooler, and less people on the beach to hold a sunset beach wedding, there is no other backdrop needed other than the glorious sunset sky.

A beach wedding in Florida is a special kind of celebration. It can be planned year round because of our temperate climate. Even a Christmas Beach Wedding is possible here as well as a July Beach Wedding. But there are things to consider when planning this beautiful event.
1. Decide on a beach that is suitable for you. Whether you want a secluded spot or a lively type of beach, there are many choices in this area.
2. Make your plans with any accommodations you may need for family and friends that may be attending.
3. Obtain your marriage license by mail ahead of time if this is what you prefer, or make plans to visit the courthouse to obtain your marriage license in person.
We make everything easy for you, but working these things out will reduce your stress level as it gets closer to your wedding day.

Its such a thrilling experience to capture the surrounding landscape on your beach wedding day, from a perspective not possible from the ground.

Its the brides style that determines the beach wedding decor she envisions for her wedding day. There are no set rules for a wedding on the beach. Go with your own instincts, and we will will take care of all the beach wedding details for you, affordably and with care.

A beach wedding in Florida can be beautiful, exciting, and sad to say, expensive. Couples need to do their research to plan a beach wedding that wont get out of control financially. Between the beach wedding ceremony set up and the vendor searches and possibly hotel accommodations, its a tightrope to balance everything without becoming overwhelmed. There are hundreds and hundreds of beaches in the state of Florida, there are hundreds and hundreds of beach wedding companies, and you may be going in different directions all at once. The first thing to do would be to narrow your location to where you would like to be married, whether its northern Florida, central Florida, or the south. Do your research on the beaches in the area, if they require permits, if they are heavily populated, if they are well maintained and what restrictions or regulations every wedding couple has to abide by. This step is already taken care of by us, as we are familiar with the beaches in the area, what is allowed on each beach, what permits need to be pulled, and how to make your beach wedding a lasting memory. All you have to do is pick your colors and decor and we take care of everything else!

One of the biggest expenses for wedding reception decor is ceiling draping and a bride on a limited budget should not attempt to include this unless she can handle the costs involved. Here are some tips for the brides who are considering this
1. Ceiling draping should only be installed by a professional as there are many things that can go wrong in the installation at a wedding reception venue.
2. Ceiling draping is usually charged per panel or arm and the more panels you use the more expensive it becomes.
3. Ambience lighting is not included and would also be an additional cost to consider.
4. A lot of details need to be handled for this particular service as installation takes more than a few hours and venues need to accommodate for this, and sometimes this is an additional cost for couples.
5. The most common fabric used for this is chiffon but wedding vendors may have different options.
6 .Measurements should be taken for the height, length and width of room in order to get an accurate quote.

If ever there were so many choices in the wedding world then centerpieces would be on the top of the list. But with all the possibilities of beautiful centerpieces, they all come with a price tag. Centerpieces can be as elaborate or as simple as your budget allows. The pricing is according to how many flowers are being used, what type of flowers, the labor costs involved and the type of vases being used. A simply done centerpiece can be just as elegant as a candelabra with a large floral arrangement. We will work with you to create a wedding centerpiece that is within your budget and style and colors.
