Beach Wedding W. Palm Beach

I just discovered that the hotel we are staying at will not allow our wedding photographer there bc he is not on the list of "preferred vendors".

So I plan to NOT use the hotel's wedding planner and simply plan our small ceremony myself.

But I don't know if a beach permit is required to have a ceremony on the beach at the Ritz or Four Seasons.

Does anybody know the answer to this question?

Hummmmm.......you are required to obtain a permit when getting married on the beach in Palm Beach county(I think it is 90.00). You do not need the permit if you get married through a hotel. My concern is that will the Ritz or Four Seasons allow you to get married on their property beach front w/o at least using their facilities? The permits are required for public beach ceremonies. That is completely silly that you are not allowed to bring your own photographer. Have you considered other hotels? I know of three that would be much more accomidating......

Marriot Delray Beach


The Resort, Singer Island


The Hiton, Singer Island


I got married on Singer Island, and my wedding was fabulous. I had no hassles. Let me know if you need any info. Thanks
