Have a Tropical Miami Beach Wedding Before Your Honeymoon Cruise
by Monique N. Gilbert
Discover why couples who want an affordable destination wedding and honeymoon, are eloping to Miami and having a marriage ceremony on the beach before they go on a cruise.
Looking to find a way to fit a beautiful wedding and honeymoon into your busy lifestyle without going broke? Savvy brides and grooms-to-be have discovered a wonderful and affordable way to say "I do" that is full of romance and adventure.
An increasing number of couples are choosing to have romantic tropical Miami Beach weddings before they go on their honeymoon cruises. The notion of getting married away from home, and combining the marriage ceremony and honeymoon has become extremely popular as more couples plan and pay for their own wedding celebrations. The ease and cost savings of having a destination wedding and honeymoon are two main factors for this new trend.
One of the main attractions to this type of destination wedding is that non-Florida residents and foreign couples can get a Florida marriage license quickly and easily. They can fly into Miami, get their Florida marriage license in person, and have a beautiful ceremony on South Beach; all before they go "bon voyage" from PortMiami.
Florida also allows out-of-state and international couples to apply for their marriage licenses by mail and get all the paperwork straightened out before they arrive in Miami. This convenience is most appreciated by busy couples who are short on time and want help arranging their wedding.
The convenience of coming into town, having your beach wedding ceremony all arranged and getting married before leaving on a cruise, sets the right mood for a happy honeymoon departure. Most couples arrive in Miami and have their wedding ceremony on the beach the day before they depart on their cruise. They stay at a luxury Miami Beach hotel and have their marriage ceremony on the beach behind their hotel or at a public beach by South Beach. Other couples prefer to have their wedding ceremony the day that they arrive into town.
Either way, couples love the idea of getting married on South Beach before leaving PortMiami as husband and wife. When they step aboard the ship, they are already celebrating their joyous occasion, and are looking forward to continuing their celebrations throughout the night at sea. They get to be causal, carefree and leave their worries behind. Romance is all around them and they are all set to start their new life together in an exciting and loving way.
The appeal to having your honeymoon at sea is that with all the cruise ship activities and amenities, you will have plenty to do and fun to experience. You get to eat, drink, and be merry. You can kick back and relax by the pool, or you can partake in the various onboard recreations like rock climbing, skeet shooting, dancing and the like. You also can go out on tours and adventures when your ship docks at various ports.
The economical cost savings is the other attraction. Couples can apply the money saved by having a destination wedding to their honeymoon festivities. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for a one-day traditional wedding and reception, you can have a romantic beach marriage ceremony and a one-to-two week extravaganza with money to spare. You can have a romantic wedding, travel in luxury, dine like royalty and create an assortment of memories that will last the rest of your lives.
Join the many couples who want to have memorable, affordable and intimate nuptials, with a newlywed adventure afterwards. Take charge of your destiny and elope to Miami Beach before you set sail.
