Florida: Couples can now take their nuptials to new depths with mermaid wedding packages — which come complete with ‘his and hers’ tails.

The unique underwater ceremony lasts just 10 minutes while the bride and groom exchange their vows using large waterproof signs in the swimming pool of a hotel in south Florida.
The bride can choose to wear either a full traditional wedding gown or opt for a more revealing mermaid bra-and-tail outfit.
The groom, on the other hand, can also opt for a mermaid tail or a more traditional tux. The pair are assisted by their own mermaid officiant who will help guide them through the ceremony in the deep end of the pool which is approximately eight feet deep.
In the lead up to the big day, the bride and groom are fitted for tails and are given aquatic training from the hotel’s own mermaid.
