As an example, what if the location you choose requires a beach wedding permit, will that be included. Or, better yet, are there additional charges for booking the permit on your behalf?
We are clear to point out in our beach wedding packages that none of them include the beach wedding permit. Because, not every location requires one. Yet, the span in cost is significant in some cases. Therefore, it’s hard to include those costs into the pre-designed Florida wedding packages.
However, what we never do is charge additional for the permit! This is where some companies get you! What would cost you $100.00 to file on your own, the wedding company is charging you $150.00 for.

What Are The Cancellation Fee’s?

The same thing isn’t true with other companies. The minute you book the package and they run your card, you lost it all! Plus, in extreme cases, they charge you above the refund amount. Just like a bunch of crooks would do!
Will Someone From the Company Be At the Beach?
This is a big one, and we can’t figure out why. However, there are several wedding companies offering beach wedding packages that only send the vendors to the beach. And by vendors, we mean people who are sub-contractors of the company and not directly employed by the company.
This is horrible! Someone who works directly for the wedding company should be on site. This guarantees things happen the way they are suppose to happen.
