If you are planning a beach wedding, you may receive some unexpected, but welcome benefits. It is sunny in southern Florida, so you can count on nice weather most of the time – except during rainy season (late May to early September). A beach wedding is fun for brides and grooms and guests because it is casual and you do not need tuxedos with tails. You can save some on the rental bill, but it does not mean casual wedding needs less planning if you do-it-yourself wedding.
