Summer Weddings in Florida

Summer is a great time to get married in Florida, and we have the tools to help you get hitched without a hitch.  We have a list of the best places to get married in Florida; and we offer a premarital course that enables you to save $32.50 off your marriage license and will allow you to avoid the three day wait in Florida to get married. For more information about our Official and Certified Florida Premarital Course, CLICK HERE.

A summer day in Florida may sound hot! But choosing the right location and set up will make your special day work out perfectly. An inside wedding during the summer is ideal for those who do not want the risk of weather interfering with their special day.

If you enjoy Florida’s warmth and want an outdoor wedding during the summer you can reduce the risk of weather interfering by doing a few things. Choose a venue that offers indoor and outdoor spaces so that you have a backup plan if the weather is not ideal or it can just give your guests the option for AC! Also the use of tents, umbrellas or a pavilion is a great way to keep dry or be under some shade!, offers some other great tips for those wanting to have an outdoor summer wedding.

Also before choosing your wedding date and location in Florida, consider taking a Florida premarital preparation course. Again, this course allows you to avoid the three day wait requirement, saves you money and prepares you for your marriage.

D’Arienzo Psychological Group offers the Official Florida Premarital Preparation Course for $19.99. Our premarital course has been certified in all 67 counties in Florida. This premarital course saves you $32.50 on your marriage license and gets you ready for your special day.
