      Hey Menc, welcome to the forum!! :)

      A wedding in Florida, hey? Is it going to be on the beach, in Disney or where?

      My FI and I will be honeymooning in Florida and we found this awesome villa (which we've stayed at before and LOVED) called Regal Palms. It's really cheap if you're staying a week+

          Thanks, I would like it to be at a resort on the beach w/ a spa, pool, etc.. The works. I am having a tough time finding one in Florida, in the Miami area.

            Welcome! My MOHs sister got married at the Delano in south beach. It wasn't on the beach but it's a super fab location.

                I know of a planner down there (friend of the family) who is really good. I have her website info at work and I can send it to you tomorrow...

                We had considered Florida for awhile. The only drawback was that we really wanted a resort (FI especially wanted AI resort) and we couldn't agree on any, except of course, the one on a private island that was $10K per night... :)

                  Welcome to the forum! I love the idea of getting married in FL - none of the hassles of getting married in a foreign country, and you still get all of the benefits (warm, beach, vacation, etc.).

                  When I was in Miami Beach last, we stayed at the Fontainebleau Resort Hotel. It's right on the beach, has a couple gorgeous pools... and very nice dinning. I really enjoyed it.

                    Welcome! Florida sounds absolute fabulous. Since you mentioned Miami I will throw some places out there for you:

                    1. Four Seasons
                    2. Delano
                    3. The Setai
                    4. Sagmore Hotel

                    I know none of these are all-inclusive but they are soooooo nice. Would you consider having it a private estate? Or do you have your heart set on a resort? Let us know how we can help with your wedding planning.
