Mermaids aren’t just a myth at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel, where couples can have an underwater ceremony with mermaid entertainment and a tail-wearing photo shoot.

The Underwater Mermaid Wedding package is perfect for couples looking for something a little different for their wedding day. The package includes a legal wedding ceremony on a private beach with an officiant. The couple can exchange their vows in a picturesque setting with white chairs, a carpet runner, microphone, speaker, and iPod dock. Couples can choose from having the ring or vow exchange, first kiss, or the first dance underwater with a mermaid, while guests view from The Wreck Bar. The package also includes a 1.5-hour reception at The Wreck Bar with a champagne toast, appetizers, and a buttercream cake. Before the wedding day, the couple will be fitted for mermaid tails to flaunt in a personalized photo shoot, and learn aquatic training from the hotel’s mermaid. Rates start at $95 pp for a 30- to 50-minute ceremony for at least 30 guests. Room rates for August start at $119 per night. For more information, visit sheratonftlauderdalebeach.com.
