Planning a Destination Beach Wedding



When you are dreaming up a destination wedding at an exotic beach location, this is everything you need to know about planning for the occasion, such as venue, décor, reception and all the important details that should never be overlooked. When the bride and groom are seeking a romantic and unforgettable destination to say their ‘I do’s', the perfect way to add a little extra fervor to the nuptials is to plan a destination beach wedding. Searching for a unique venue at a romantic and meaningful location is the first step to planning some of the most important elements of the adventure you are about to embark.


Best Beach for a Destination Beach Wedding

When planning a destination beach wedding, the first choice to be made is location. The romantic coastal city of Clearwater Beach is the perfect place to host a destination beach wedding. Its white sandy beaches, beachfront promenade, surrounding resorts, street performers, and nightly festivities on Pier 60 bring visitors all year-round for parasailing, jet sking and entertaining. It is no wonder that the title of Best Beach in the United States is commonly bestowed upon this romantic beach location.


Ceremony and Reception of a Destination Beach Wedding

Your ceremony and reception can be at the same location or you can choose a wedding on the beach and the reception indoors. Couples that choose a beach wedding frequently opt to hold the ceremony by the water and host the reception inside at a formal setting. Finding a venue with the versatility to accommodate the transition between the outdoor and indoor décor and space for both elements of the wedding in one package can prove to be essential to the success of the event. Crystal Ballroom Clearwater is a rare wedding venue that affords the opportunity and flexibility to accommodate the offsite décor on the beach location and to host the elegant ballroom reception of your dreams.


Timing of a Beach Wedding

Timing is critical when it comes to a ceremony of such importance, especially when planning a destination beach wedding. It is crucial to find a venue that offers a package with a wedding event coordinator or has a list of trusted vendors to guarantee every part of the event transitions in an organized fashion and at a low key measure. An outdoor event can be affected by climactic conditions. Having a venue with a wedding event coordinator that works together with the venue to facilitate last minute changes without interruption or detracting from the event is critical. The timing of the wedding party, the groom and the bride’s entrance should be planned without awkward delays, and the departure of each and the guests should be coordinated to flow flawlessly. Crystal Ballroom Clearwater offers day of event wedding coordinators and all-inclusive packages to help you plan for a successful destination beach wedding.


Offsite Decor

It is essential to select a venue with versatility and inventory to create the destination beach wedding you envision. Every detail, unique touch, and special flair you choose to add to your unique theme on the beach should transpire according to how it was imagined. This is why selecting a wedding venue with a dedicated design team as a part of your wedding package is so important. Bringing the elegance from within a ballroom to an exotic beach location such as Clearwater is the specialty of the designers at Crystal Ballroom in Clearwater.
