Florida beach wedding Ceremonies

Florida beach wedding ceremonies can reflect an aspect of your heritage and your past and as the words are spoken on a sandy Florida shore, they are really all about your promises for the future. You are unique and as you celebrate your love for each other, there are many ways to make the service uniquely yours. It could be a family member playing an instrument, a reading or a song, it could be you have written your own vows or would like to enjoy a variation on the unity ceremony, involving children. As Suncoast Weddings, we’ll help plan every detail so that when your big day comes, everything can proceed as you want it to. You’ll be able to relax and savor the experience.
If you are looking for inspiration, we’ve included more information about some of the ceremonies it has been our pleasure to conduct at Suncoast weddings. See the range of Suncoast Weddings packages and themes to inspire. The unity sand ceremony and the blessing stones ceremony could be combined with any of the other formats.

The Unity Sand Ceremony

Symbolic of the two lives being joined together as one. The blending of the sand represents the union not only of the couple, but their friends and families as well. The sands, once poured into the unity vase, can never again be separated. This is the perfect opportunity to include children in your ceremony if you wish.

Handfasting

Across the centuries and across cultures, the symbolic tying of hands is one of the oldest matrimonial traditions. In everyday speech, we recognize “tying the knot,” “bonds of matrimony” and “hand in marriage”, all of which derive from ancient traditions of twisting the bride’s and groom’s clothing together or wrapping their wrists with braided cords, grasses or vines.
