FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW FAR AWAY IS COCOA BEACH FROM ORLANDO?
Orlando doesn't have a beach; it's located right in the middle of the State. Cocoa Beach is Orlando's closest beach, and the drive might take you anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on where in Orlando you are staying.
HOW DOES EVERYTHING WORK?
Our clients tells us they cannot believe how simple and hassle-free the process was! This is how it works:
Once you are ready to book your date with a signed agreement and your payment, contact us to check availability for your date.
Once we confirm availability for a date that works for you, we’ll prepare an electronic agreement and invoice to book your day.
As soon as you sign the electronic agreement and pay your retainer, we secure your vendors for your day, send you a step-by-step email with due dates and all the information you need to get ready for your day.
You are welcome to reach out via phone, text, or email, with any questions you may have throughout the entire process including if you need help finding additional vendors!
Two months prior your wedding, you will complete a short questionnaire we’ll send you to choose your flowers and tells us a bit about your ceremony preferences. Also, your final payment is due at that time.
The day of the ceremony, we’ll meet at the venue with flowers in hand ready for your ceremony! Yes, it’s that simple!

DO WE MEET UP IN PERSON TO DISCUSS OUR CEREMONY / IS THERE A REHEARSAL?
No. Everything is discussed via phone, email, and text.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I HAVE?
The elopement for two is for couples eloping without guests. We do make exceptions for couples eloping with their children.
WHERE IS THE CEREMONY HELD?
Ceremonies are held at a public beach in the Cocoa Beach area. We've been hosting ceremonies at that location for many years.
CAN I GET MARRIED ANY DAY OF THE WEEK?
Beach ceremonies are available Monday through Friday only.
HOW DOES THE MARRIAGE LICENSE BY MAIL WORKS?
Elope to Orlando is authorized with our local Clerk of the Courts to help our couples obtain a Florida marriage license in absentia ahead of time. This service is provided free of charge as an added value to our clients, however, it requires a few weeks advanced notice. This is how the process works:
The couple completes a special marriage license application that we give them
We take that application to our local Clerk of the Courts
The Clerk of the Courts will send us the couple's Florida marriage license for processing
The couple receive their license via email, and they need to sign the license in front of a Notary, then send it to us via postal mail.
We take the signed and notarized license back to the Clerk's Office and get it finalized and stamped, ready for their wedding!
The day of your wedding, we'll give the license to the Officiant. You don't have to do anything else!
WHERE DO I GET A FLORIDA MARRIAGE LICENSE IN PERSON?
You can get a Florida marriage license at any Florida Clerk of the Courts office. It's a simple and quick process. US Citizens would need a Driver's License or State ID and their SS number. Non-Us Citizens all they need it a passport. If either of you have been married before, you would need to know the divorce date of your previous marriage. No documents needed - just the date.

I LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE/COUNTRY. DO I NEED A MARRIAGE LICENSE FROM FLORIDA?
Yes, you do. To get married in Florida, you need a Florida marriage license regardless of where you live. Your marriage is valid anywhere in the United States and most countries, included the UK. You don't have to do anything else. After the wedding, you will receive a Certified Copy, which is your marriage certificate.
CAN I BRING MY OWN OFFICIANT OR PHOTOGRAPHER?
No, sorry. Our company is owned and managed by a ceremony team with the purpose of providing our ceremony services. The advantage to hiring us is that you are saving time and money from the cost of traditional wedding planning service.
DO YOU ARRANGE VOWS RENEWALS?
Absolutely! All of our packages are suitable for vows renewal. They only difference is that you don't need a marriage license because you are already married.
DO YOU PERFORM SAME-SEX CEREMONIES?
Yes, we do!
CAN WE HAVE/BRING CAKE AND/OR CHAMPAGNE?
No. You cannot.
HOW LONG IS THE CEREMONY?
The entire event, including arrival, the ceremony and photos, usually takes about an hour to 90 minutes.
IS THERE A PLACE TO CHANGE INTO MY GOWN AT THE VENUE?
No. You need to arrive dressed and ready to start the ceremony.
WHAT TYPE OF FLOWERS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE PACKAGES?
Packages include a nosegay (hand-tied) bouquet with fresh roses in your choice of rose colors and a matching boutonniere OR a tropical bouquet with florist’s choice of flowers and matching boutonniere.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
There is NO backup in case of rain. If it rains, you would have to wait for the rain to move away, as it usually happens, to continue with the ceremony. There is a covered pavilion on the green areas of the park that may be used if the rain doesn't move away, subject to availability.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF A HURRICANE?
On average, Florida gets hit with a hurricane only about once every three years. Additionally, depending on the strength and the path of the storm, Central Florida might not feel the effects except for some rain. Therefore, it is pretty safe to say that the chances of a hurricane coming through Orlando the day of your wedding are very slim. That being said, in the event of a hurricane, we'll try our best to work with our team to make your ceremony happen. If you don't live in Florida and you are getting married during hurricane season (June-November), we suggest that you arrive at least two days prior your wedding and you don't schedule your departure until after a few days later, in case we need to move your day.
HOW FAR OUT CAN I BOOK MY ELOPEMENT?
No more than a year out.
WE WANT TO ELOPE! HOW TO WE START?
