Hello from Newbie (& slightly panicked) Tampa bride

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I'm new and just got engaged. My fiance and I live in upstate NY and had already had a 2 week FL vacation planned. Since we don't want (and really can't afford) a wedding, we decided to tie the knot in FL. The first week of our vacation we will be at a resort in Orlando (my wonderful parents gave us a week at their timeshare) and then we're off to Tampa where we'll set sail on a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise.

 

Oh, did I mention that this is happening in the middle of April, just 2 months away?!?!

 

So, I'm trying to figure out how to make this happen. We will have a couple friends with us and would love to get married on the beach. No reception makes it easy, but not being from Tampa, I'm nervous about finding an officiant when I can't meet with them in person.

Anyone have advice?

Hi and welcome!  So it would be just the two of you?  Sounds very romantic.  Here are some links and tips that might make your time here on BDW more enjoyable.
 
If you have not done so, you may want to:
 
  • complete your profile (upload a photo, add profile details, etc.)

Congrats and welcome!  Is our resort on the beach?  If so, I wuold talk directly to them.  Actually, I would start with them either way, they might be able to point you in the right direction to find someone to help you pull it together.
