Reserving Your Special Day!

Emerald Coast Beach Weddings, Inc. is family owned and operated by sisters April, Wendy and Jodi. Our Florida Beach Wedding Packages are for the sophisticated bride and groom who desire a "Coastal Elegant" beach wedding. We put our heart and soul into creating a day that you, your family and friends will always remember. Our promise to you is this---your wedding day will be handled with professionalism, honesty and our sincerest wish for your beach wedding dream to come true. With our guidance, assistance and dedication to you, it will!

To reserve your wedding date contact us by filling in our beach wedding planner (see contact us) or call 850-387-5460 with the beach wedding package and wedding date you have in mind. Your wedding package price is broken into 3 separate amounts which are spread out over the length of time between the booking date and the actual date of the wedding.

First, a "Booking Fee" paid by credit card is required to secure your special day! Emerald Coast Beach Weddings accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover (these cards may also be debit cards) for this initial deposit. This "Booking Fee" holds your date and allows us to secure the vendors and crew for your wedding.

The next step is the "Good Faith Deposit" which is due about half way through the time frame of the booking of your date and the day of the wedding. This second deposit may be made by credit card, money order or personal check.

The remaining balance of your package, "Final Payment", is due 30 days prior to the wedding date. You may pay the "Final Payment" with credit card, check or money order. Make checks or money orders payable to Emerald Coast Beach Weddings. If you have paid your "Final Deposit" and need to reschedule your wedding, you may do so one time without any further cost or deposit required by Emerald Coast Beach Weddings (some special vendors will require a new deposit-if this is applicable we will tell you before your wedding date is rescheduled)

Your contract with all due dates stated will be emailed to you once your date is secured with your "Booking Fee". We will also send you the Panama City Beach area free referrals, wedding itinerary and your beach wedding vows at this time. We may send you invoices for the amounts due prior to the due date—you may pay from the link provided in the invoice, or send us instructions on how you would like to pay the amounts due.
