@littlebeachbride:  I think it sounds lovely. The only thing is you need to look into whether you’re allowed to get married on the beach. I’d start by contacting some wedding officiants in that area. I know that in my city you need to ask permission, even if it’s in a public place and there’s nothing to set up. It might not cost any extra money, and it IS a public beach, but your wedding officiant will need to follow rules… so I’d double check to be sure.

It actually sounds lovely, you will be surrounded by the people you love the most and at the end of the day you’ll be married! Sounds perfect to me! Good luck with everything!

@littlebeachbride:  

I googled permits on St augustine beach weddings and found this:

So if you have less than 15 people it’s ok! more than 15 it’s a $100 permit fee. Hope that helps. I think your idea sounds lovely, I think it would be a really nice gesture if you could pay for the dinner. Congrats!

We had a very similar wedding on Tybee Island in May of last year and it was great! We had 8 guests (just the closest family) and it was GREAT!! We loved the intimacy of it 🙂

We having a double ceremony beach wedding. Very small then we are taking a dinner cruise in Clearwater.  Very simple very easy to plan, like you not renting chairs or arches or any of that, just 2 brides and 2 grooms and a handful of people.

I think it will be amazing.  Beach ceremonies are always so lovely.  Congrats and congrats again on the new baby.  Motherhood is wonderful.

It sounds wonderful! I would be sure to let your guests know that they will be responsible for their own meal just so that there is no confusion.

I love it!  The historic downtown area is great and the beach is perfect for a wedding ceremony.  Enjoy!

P.S. We’re saying “I do” on the beach in St. Auggie too.
