Florida is affectionately known as the Sunshine State due to its almost yearlong sunny weather and lovely beaches. If you are thinking of an easy breezy beach wedding, Florida is likely one of the top choices. It is easy to obtain a marriage license from any courthouse in Florida and it is valid for 60 days. While there is no waiting period for out-of-state couples, Florida residents need to maintain a three-day waiting period or undergo a four-hour counseling session.
With access to 825 mi (1327.71 km) of coastline, engaged couples can easily find their perfect beach wedding spot along with a beachfront mansion for the festivities. If you are planning a destination wedding, make sure to encourage your guests to visit exciting attractions such as Discovery Cove Orlando, The Dali, or Castillo de San Marcos National Monument.

Close to the beach, without being directly on it, this property allows couples a chance to celebrate a dreamy beach wedding. The house is just 500 ft (152.40 m) from the beach if you wish to host your wedding on the shore. Another excellent alternative for hosting a small affair is the lush tropically landscaped backyard. The space can be expanded to include the side garden, while drinks can be set up at the backyard tiki bar for an evening of celebration.
While the property does not allow parties, it hosts weddings and special events, but the number of attendees might need to be registered prior to the event. This rental follows quiet hours from 11pm onwards for the convenience of the neighbors.
Standout features: Early luggage drop off and beach access
