A beach wedding in Miami comes with three guarantees: gorgeous beaches, crystal blue ocean waters and year-round warm weather. Sure, other places might boast the same, but Miami offers that in a sexy, cosmopolitan destination with exceptional hotels, fabulous restaurants, the world-famous nightlife of South Beach, great shopping, tropical attractions and a modern international airport to get you on your honeymoon quickly. Your wedding party will never get bored in Miami.

Enjoy the Tropics 

A ceremony on the beach can be simple and understated, or glamorous and over-the-top. Choose locally available fresh orchids on tabletops, lanterns filled with sand and seashells, and even a palm-wreathed arch to say your vows beneath – the sky's the limit when it comes to creative and elegant tropical weddings in Miami. 

Couples who want to keep things simple can hold the ceremony directly on the beach and treat their guests to an elegant Champagne brunch afterward at one of the many local outdoor restaurants with live music to fit the theme.

For an even more laid-back wedding ceremony, you can hire a notary public to perform a beach wedding ceremony just for two. The notary helps file the marriage license, assists with selecting vows and arranges for digital photos of the ceremony. How's that for stress-free nuptials?

If you are a bride that craves a bit more glitz for thier beach wedding, pick one of Miami's many stunning oceanfront hotels for your ceremony. Say your vows under a flower draped arbor facing the ocean, followed by sunset cocktails and canapés by the pool. For your reception, a moonlit dinner followed by dancing under the stars makes quite a romantic statement.

Other upscale options include having your wedding reception aboard a luxury yacht or hosting a pre-wedding party at one of Miami's hot rooftop lounges. To put everyone in an island mood, you can even hire a reggae band or steel drum quartet.

Covering The Details

Your choice of beach wedding locations in Miami also will never be boring with options that include a hotel on its own private island, glamorous oceanfront resorts or a charming Art Deco hotels.

Many Miami hotels offer complete wedding packages and will be happy to take care of every detail, including helping to arrange for marriage licenses, working with quality caterers and florists, and hiring entertainment. While the professionals are busy taking care of the details, brides can focus on finding the perfect dress at one of Miami's many high-fashion bridal shops in Coral Gables or enjoying a spa day with the girls.

A beach wedding in Miami is an unforgettable way to start your life together and an unforgettable trip for your friends and family to share in the excitement of your one-of-a-kind, tropical destination wedding.
