    Inanna, I would love to see more pics of your wedding but I don't think I have the option to PM you yet. If you don't mind, I would really love to see more pics. My email is Kimzwedding@gmail.com. Have you heard of Pierre's? I am still debating between Cancun and the Keys. Thanks so much for sharing!

      When my mom and I went to Key West in May for a planning trip we drive from Miami and stopped in Islamorada and ate at the Islamorada Fish Company....it was wonderful!! We originally stopped at the Cheeca Resort b/c I had considered getting married there, but it was WAY too snobby and they were rude to use when we got there so we went to the fish co. and it was sooo worth it.

      Im getting married in Key West in Aug. and I am staying at the Southermost resort. I love it b/c it's right by Duval st so I can walk to all the fun bars and restaurants, but the hotel is in a quieter part of town. It has a private beach and cafe. We have some people coming who want to drink and have fun and other who just want to relax and enjoy the quiet, I feel like In KEY west you can do both. YOu make it waht you want. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get married in the Keys. There is something for everyone and tons of great places to stay and eat. I felt like the other keys locations didn't have a whole lot of things for people to do. I also didn't want people to have to drive or rent a car if they didn't want to.

        Huongii - I'm emailing you a links to a slightly bigger wedding album (250 pics).

        Pierre's is absolutely STUNNING! If we hadn't chosen a private estate for our wedding, Pierre's would have been at the top of our list. Right next to Pierre's (same owner) there's also Morada Bay Cafe, which has the same amazing views, but is more casual and affordable.

          Hi! I am new to this website. I live in Islamorada. I am actually planning a small wedding in Costa Rica, but I would love to help any brides planning a wedding in the Florida Keys. I now understand how hard it is to plan a destination wedding! =)

            Is anyone running into random fees for weddings on the beach?  We are looking at booking 2 houses and the rental company told us there is a $1,000 fee for events on the beach and that we'd pay that anywhere else.  The fee doesn't include anything...its just the fee.  I feel if we're paying $12K for 2 huge houses we shouldn't have to pay an extra 1000 to use the beach in front!! thoughts??

              Yes, this is pretty common everywhere.  I somewhat understand the logic - accidents are much more likely to happen with big gatherings, esp. for celebratory events where alcohol is involved (this is why many rental houses don't allow weddings at all).  We rented 2 beach houses in Islamorada for our wedding, but the owner agreed to waive the $1500 event fee...this was in 2009, so I doubt they waive this fee anymore.  Back when I was looking at properties, it seemed like newer owners were more willing to negotiate. Most rental agencies I contacted required a $1000-2000 event fee and were not willing to negotiate.

                I am getting married in Islamorada in December at Pierre's.  Do you have any recommendations for hair and makeup?  Any advice at all would be so helpful!  Thanks!

                  We are getting married at The Islander in June. My fiance and I go to Islamorada about once a month so we are very familiar with the area. We are having a very small wedding about 30 people and from what I found the Islander was the only place willing to negotiate the price, Casey has been great so far! Hair and makeup I am going to try Blue Bamboo, its only about a block away from the Islander and looks like a nice place, we will probably do our engagement pictures in Dec or Jan down there so I will let you know how my hair turns out. I read someone mentioned Case Morada resort for a wedding. We went there and talked to someone who was willing to work with us for such a small wedding up until we were ready to book then told us we needed to rent the entire resort, I thought that was very unprofessional and disappointing. Hope this helps and if anyone has questions feel free to ask, like I said we are there about once a month and also planning a wedding so it's nice to hear ideas or suggestions.

                    I ran into the same issue about the $1000.00 fee but when I explained that we were not having a caterer or anyone but the JP coming to the house. We are getting married in the backyard the only people coming to the wedding will be staying at the house....they agreed to waive the fee. This probably wouldn't work in you are having a larger wedding but I'm planning a backyard BBQ so it works for us :)

                      I would love to hear about your experience with Pierre's. We are looking at doing our wedding there next year.
