It might be just a dream of yours. Or, at least a gauzy vision inspired by a romantic movie.
You awaken in your beachside hotel that overlooks the azure Atlantic ocean with warm beige sand. That swirl of white crescent wave and bit of blue out your window couldn’t be more calming. That’s because I’ve come here to get married—and the scene set by the beach and ocean is nature’s altar and wedding decoration.
At Ideal I Do’s, south Florida’s premier wedding company, you will find all sorts of beach wedding packages to suit your needs and budget. Whether it be a celebration for 2 or 200, this is your day, my stay at this gorgeous beach to celebrate your big moment, seems more like her wedding gift than a ceremony.
Set amid the United States’ longest state shoreline, far flung enough from the snowy north, the serene ocean beckons as a haven. It’s the place for a bride and groom to hide out (although, if you visit, you’re like to glimpse one) for honeymooners hankering to focus on one another, and for families who understand the concept that sometimes doing nothing at all is really doing everything.
With 175 hotels to choose from — some that dot the very edge of the beach from high-rises to a colonial styles, and a handful of two-and-three-or five bedroom villas to rent for a week, scatter down the shoreline like tide-deposited seashells, South Florida makes the perfect place for a destination wedding of any size.
Our couples do bring smaller groups, 10 – 50 or so, and hold ceremonies on the beach, on the verandahs of sea-facing hotels, and in the gardens and parks in the area. Some brides and grooms come alone, choosing to make this their day alone, and letting the Ideal I Do’s wedding-planners organize every romantic detail.
There’s plenty to amuse kids here as well. Besides sandcastle-building, South Florida offers a bevy of beach toys and activities, from stand-up paddleboards, to sailboats, jet skis to bikes, and we can organize scavenger and outings to kid-pleasing places such as Jungle Island, and the everglades as well.
Wedding guests, groomsmen and maids can likewise entertain themselves. Besides the hotel pools, often ringed by linen-capped day beds, Ideal I Do’s offers to organize daily fitness walks on the beach with breakfast, and customizes itineraries to include sunset cruises, snorkeling expeditions, diving outings, and deep sea fishing adventures.
