The Ultimate Beach Wedding Question: WHAT IF IT RAINS?
(A): You have a few options: We offer "rain insurance" which guarantees you a wedding if it rains out on your date for $250. This means we will reschedule you. OR (better yet) we go to where you are having your reception an hour early and have the wedding there.
This is the tropics. It rains. Our policy is that we set up once. If it is raining during set up - we will not set up the electronics. We will set up tikis, unless the wind is such that it is lifting the sand off of the beach.
How Much Deposit do I need to hold my day?
We generally require a 50% deposit to hold your day. The balance is due 2 weeks before the wedding. Deposits can be made via paypal or check.
Can we do it at a private beach?
There are no private beaches in Florida or anywhere. There is only private access to a beach.
THERE ARE MANY FACTORS THAT CAN CHANGE ON A BEACH. YOU MUST BE FLEXIBLE, IF WE NEED TO CHANGE SOMETHING, IT IS FOR THE GOOD OF THE WEDDING.
What does the contract cover?
IDID is responsible for setting up your beautiful wedding ceremony which will be ready 30 minutes before start time. We do our best to stick to the contract, however, we may make on the spot decisions due to factors that are beyond our control that are best for your wedding. We will communicate these to you as best we can before the wedding. We cannot control other beach visitors, the weather, traffic, parking, construction or anything other than your wedding ceremony.
(Q): Can you recommend sites?
(A): South Florida is blessed with some of the most beautiful locations in the world to have your beach wedding. Not only do we have some of the best beaches in the world, but also an array of activities and attractions nearby to keep you and your loved ones busy while you get ready to take the plunge (no pun intended). These are the most popular locations for beach wedding, please contact us if you have a location that is not on this list.
You must inquire as to each locations rules and permit requirements.
(Q): Do you only do traditional weddings?
(Q): What religion are you?
(Q): How much do you charge to officiate a Miami wedding?
(A): It depends on the package you choose. At Ideal I Do’s, we have wedding packages starting at $99, so we truly offer weddings for every budget.
(Q): Do you do beach weddings?
(A): That is our specialty. Our advice to engaged couples on a budget: get married at the beach. Beach weddings are romantic, beautiful, and they can be affordable. True, you can spend a fortune on a Florida beach wedding at a posh resort, but will the Florida sunset be any more colorful if you are eating caviar? Does the call of a seagull sound better if you are surrounded by ice sculptures? We think not. All of this may be nice, but it detracts from the simple elegance of the beach setting. Our elegant beach weddings are about the love of you and your partner, not about a show of opulence.
(Q): Do you offer a military discount?
(A): Our prices are already the best in the area - and still we support our troops (active and veterans) by giving a 10 percent discount for the military.
(Q): Does Ideal I Do’s offer wedding photography and video?
(A): Yes. Our best wedding packages include one hour of unlimited digital photography and every one includes a high definition video of your wedding ceremony.
