Key West vendors

Recommended Posts

I was in Key West on the 16th and our cruise ship was leaving at 5:00pm. I returned to the ship about 4:00pm and saw a wedding taking place outside at Ocean Key so I thought maybe it was yours since you got married in Key West on the 16th.

Hi! I am getting married this January in Key West at the Marriott Beachside hotel. Do you think I made a good decision on where to have the ceremony and stay? It is still not too late for me to change things. Thank you!

Ali, I just got back from visiting several resorts in southern Florida, including 3 in Key West. Two of those resorts gave me their lists of preferred vendors. I would be happy to share the names of those vendors if you'd like! I'm sure they're at least decent if the resorts recommend them :)

We married in Key West on May 21st. Our vendors were:

 

1. EZ weddings in Paradise - officiant, photographer - a GREAT pacakge deal with VERY reasonable prices. This is a husband and wife team. She is the officiant and he is the photog. By the day after the ceremony I had all pics on a CD PLUS hard copies as well as an electronic release.

 

2. Cake - Crossiants de France - DELISH!

 

3. Hair and makeup - Marie Pierre. I can't say enough about airbrushed makeup!

 

4. Location - our hotel, the Gardens Hotel

 

5. Reception - Lattitudes on Sunset Key

 

Good Luck! PM me if you'd like more info.

I was married in Key West on May 3rd. Ceremony was at Fort Zach. (which I can't say enough great things about Kirsten. She really puts your mind at ease and makes the whole process fun!) Plus they have a package deal where you can get your flowers ceremony decor set up break down steel drummer officiant at one price. You can tweek it to meet your needs too. Reception was at the Ocean Key which is a beautiful location. I made my own centerpieces, menu cards,favors,seating card(shells) and a bunch of other personalized stuff and she put it out perfect. Our photographer was John Hunter. Amazing!!!!!! Very professional and friendly. My husband who hates getting his pic taken loved them. DJ Jimmy from Soundwaves. I think the only time the dance floor wasn't filled was during our father/daughter dance and mother/son dances. Cake was a publix cake which is the grocery store in florida. There cakes are excellent and pretty. I couldn't see spending 1000s of dollars on a cake. but thats just me. Our cake was perfect. Let me know if you need anything else. I can send you pics too.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
