I just wanted to take a moment to share how happy I am with my FL wedding destination! I just got back from a long weekend of planning down in Delray Beach, FL where my wedding will be in May at the lovely Sundy House. What a fun and funky little town! The main drag, Atlantic Avenue, is chock full of cute boutiques, restaurants, and fun bars. No chain shops except for a Starbucks-- everything else seems unique to the area. Love that! The beach is great and there are many sightseeing activities to entertain our guests. Close by are several hotels at various price points. You can fly into Fort Lauderdale, Miami or Palm Beach airports-- all within driving distance to Delray. There is a free shuttle that takes people from one end of Atlantic to the other, though you feel like you could walk to most places.
We chose the Sundy House, just a few blocks away from the activity of Atlantic Ave, because of their beautiful gardens that will (hopefully as long as it doesn't rain) provide a lovely backdrop for our ceremony. They have 3 choices for reception rooms, 2 of which open out into separate sections of their gardens. The Sundy House also has a gourmet restaurant, and the food is truly excellent. It isn't the cheapest game in town, but so far the staff has been very helpful and patient.
Months ago when I first started planning I looked all over the Southern US, Mexico and the Caribbean and this place fit my check list of priorities the best... easy access, unique feel, tropical setting, good food, and affordability. Just thought I would share my find with all of you!
I heart Delray Beach, FL!
