    I am having a destination wedding in Siesta Key. But I don't know if it is cheaper to do an all inclusive wedding package for the ceremony that some companies have or find a wedding planner & do it all seperately. My budge is approx $6,000 for the ceremony + reception with approx 30-35 people. I know it is very do-able but I'd love to keep it way under $6,000 if possible.

    Also, I was thinking of having a simple reception at the Beachhouse I believe in Sarasota/bradenton beach (one of those areas), but I didnt know if anyone else knows of another place. Appetizers/drinks is all we need :o) Nothing too fantsy.

    And anyone know of a decent hotel in Siesta Key or close to the area. I've been doing lots of research but I feel like I've been in circles!

    We are also trying to plan a honeymoon out of those too....oooh boy!

      Hey I don't have any helpful information for your situation, but I wanted to say I am also looking at the Siesta Key area for a DW. I am in the process of picking a package or a coordinator--not sure which one either. Good luck with your planning though!

        I am getting married at The BeachHouse in November! It is very reasonably priced and they don't nickle and dime you for extra costs (i.e. cake cutting, heat lamps, etc).

        Contact them on their website and they'll send you pricing.

        As for accomodations, we are suggesting Shorewalk Vacation Villas in Bradenton. They are 2 bedroom units (sleep 6) with full kitchen, laundry, livingroom.

        Please let me know if you have any questions on The BeachHouse.

          Hi...I'm getting married on Siesta Key beach next May. The reception is at the Ringling. I'm not sure of too many other places...however, I'm planning to go there in August to see other vendors. I'll be sure to keep you updated if I find anything, and let me know how it goes.

          I do have a photographer and DJ booked too...but not sure if your having the traditional wedding. If you'd like I can give you there contact info!

          Best Wishes,
          Kristi

            Hey just curious...who are you going through for the wedding--as far as decorating (if any) and taking care of the ceremony?

              I too am planning on a Siesta Key wedding. I'm using Alafia Ceremonies.net She is doing my ceremony, super cheap. Planning on renting a beach house and a small dinner reception following.
