IF YOU DO NOT PRESENT US WITH A VALID MARRIAGE LICENSE FROM THE STATE OF FLORIDA BEFORE YOUR WEDDING, WE CANNOT LEGALLY MARRY YOU! OBTAINING A LICENSE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
Cruise Ship Passengers: It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to know which time zone you are going to be in when planning your wedding. Please know that any ships departing from New Orleans, Louisiana or Galveston, Texas are an hour behind Key West, Florida time. Please plan your wedding time accordingly. If you book the wrong time and we are waiting for you, your wedding will NOT take place!
To be fair to the number of couples who would like to book their wedding with us and in order to accommodate as many as possible, we have had to institute these policies:
The most important decision is to select your preferred wedding date, and reserve that date as soon as possible to ensure availability with your Initial Payment. Payments may be made payable to Southernmost Weddings via, personal check or through Master Card, Visa and Discover Cards only. All other details will be coordinated after you have reserved your desired date and time.
If you are booking your wedding within 30 days prior to the wedding date, payment is due IN FULL.
BOOKING FEES/DEPOSITS and BALANCE PAYMENTS ARE NON-CONTRACTUAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE.
There are NO REFUNDS of any payments for cancelled weddings, no matter what the reason. Payments are the good faith monies required to reserve, book, retain, and secure your desired wedding date and time and/or the vendors. Payments are applied towards final balances if wedding proceeds as scheduled. Reservations and payments are non-transferable.
FINAL PAYMENT IS DUE IN FULL, 30 days prior to the scheduled wedding date or Southernmost Weddings reserves the right to cancel the scheduled wedding without notice unless satisfactory arrangements for payment have been made. All payments made to Southernmost Weddings are non-refundable.
Certain Holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day may be subject to a holiday premium.
All pre-coordinated packages INCLUDE site-prep, set-up, take-down, and clean-up of the wedding ceremony.
Southernmost Weddings is not responsible for inclement weather, natural disasters, man-made disasters or site restrictions. Southernmost Weddings reserves the right to change time and/or location to provide our client with the beach wedding that they have reserved. Be aware that when planning any outdoor event that inclement weather is always a possibility.
In the event of a mandatory evacuation due to a hurricane, you will have the option of rescheduling your event with no penalty, except for incidentals such as cake and flowers if they have already been prepared. We strongly suggest that you purchase "Wedding Insurance” to cover any expenses incurred due to postponement or cancellation of your wedding. Refunds will not be issued.
Please review our "Inclement Weather Policy” by clicking here or on the Inclement Weather Policy button on our home page.
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU TURN ON YOUR CELL PHONES AND HAVE AT LEAST ONE WITH YOU…AT ALL TIMES.
**** PLEASE NOTE****
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled wedding, we will not wait. You will not be entitled to a refund and any payments that you’ve made to Southernmost Weddings will be forfeited.
A few minutes is no big deal. More than 15 minutes late becomes a problem.
Bridal couples/clients (including other responsible parties or agents) who book with and sign a contract with Southernmost Weddings are acknowledging that they have reviewed, understand and agree with the terms and policies of Southernmost Weddings, regardless of who assumes payment for booking fees, deposits and final wedding balances. Wedding contracts are subject to the Terms, Conditions and Policies of Southernmost Weddings.
