FAQ

Common Q & A about a Florida Beach Wedding

I would like to have a Beach Ceremony w/ Tent Reception

The Tent reception may not be what you expect.

Keep in mind: only certain locations allow this and additional fees apply for permits, tent rental and additional insurance. The cost varies depending on the size of the tent and location. Keep in mind, the local wildlife (birds) will be joining you and these areas are often the most crowded sections of beach.The best solution is to have the ceremony at a remote, more private location and the reception nearby (within 5-10 minute drive).

Most of the guests coming into town for the ceremony will be renting a car regardless and can carpool.

We do offer a Wedding + Reception Packages at our new reception facility on St. Pete Beach (6655 Gulf Blvd, St. Pete Beach, FL):  www.affordablebanquet.com

This is arguably the best options since it has a built-in back up plan in case of inclement weather!

Please Contact Us via email or call (727) 475-2272 for more options!
