    Hi ladies,

     

    I was originally going to have my small wedding in Key West then since we where going on a cruise we thought maybe  St.Thomas might be easier BUT now we are back to key west because this way a couple of are close relatives that want to join us but cant cruise could be there... Plus! we really wanted Key West to begin with so now i need to figure out what WC i am going to use i have been looking at weddings to go key west has anybody used them? also find a nice hotel for anyone that will join us and us as well, and we are not planing on having a big reception but wanted a place to have dinner and drinks since it wont be that many of us....Any Suggestions???? Thanks in advance..

      I just returned from my wedding/honeymoon in Key West and LOVED every second of it! Her are the people and places I used and/or recommend.

       

      WC- I orginally was going to use EZ weddings in Paradise, but they referred me to someone else when I said I wouldn't need the photographer. I Ended up using Cathy at The HIp Tourist and she was AMAZING!! I could not have been happier! She does more than just wedding and will arrange anything your guests might want or need. Some of my guests wanted to do a snorkel trip and she set it all up for them.

       

      Photographer- Nora Bohanon. She isn't from Key West but I won her free photo contest on here. she was great!!

       

      Dinner- We went to Louie's Backyard for dinner and everyone RAVED about the food and service. They were wonderful and the food was some of the best I have ever had. If you are staying on the other end of the island I recommend either the Commodore or A&B Lobster House .Both are very good .For a more laid back feeling The Conch Republic is a good one too.

       

      Hotel- We stayed at the Southernmost on the Beach. Several of my guests stayed here too and every loved it. The location is great and the hotel is beautiful. 3 pools, bar, restauarant, beach etc.

       

      I hope that helps! Good luck planning. Let me know if you need anything else :-)

          The beaches are decent. They aren't the pristine white sand beaches you would find in Mexico or the Carribean, but they are nice. They are clean and water is beautiful. There was a lot of seaweed when we were there, but that was from the recent storms they had. I liked Smather's beach the best for a couple of reasons 1. it was FREE and 2. it was a lot less crowded than the beach at the state park. Depending on the hotel you choose, they may have a private beach for weddings.

            Here is a pic that a friend took at the wedding. It was on Smather's Beach. I also chose this beach b/c of the Palm trees, the state park didn't have palm trees, it was mostly pine trees :-(IMG_4395.JPG

                  I am also thinking about a small wedding in Key West. We are taking a cruise with stops in Key West and Cozumel. I had my heart set on Cozumel but it will be easier to actually get married legally in Key West. I looked into Weddings To Go, their prices were okay. I am also looking into having a lunch reception at the http://www.rooftopcafekeywest.com/. The lunch prices were great. I would like to offer lunch, drinks, and cake right after are mid morning vows.

                    The rooftop cafe is really nice. And a great place to people watch if you eat on the deck. I LOVE helping other bride's with wedding ideas so if you want more pictures, tips, ideas etc. please feel free to ask. Good luck!

                      I got married in Key West on Smathers Beach two weeks ago today. We just had 6 people including myself and now Husband. We used Southernmost Bride for the ceremony, photography and flowers! They were great! We then had lunch at Margaritaville. Since I wanted a morning ceremony we then went on a sunset dinner cruise with Dream Chaser Charters. We had the whole boat to ourselves and then they served us a gourmet dinner of lobster, steak ect.... The boat only holds six and it was perfect. Since we were a small group we decided to get a 3 bedroom cottage at Parrot Key Resort. I absolutely love this hotel. It is beautiiful and quiet as you are about 1 mile away from Duval Street. We did have a couple of meals at Conch Republic during our stay and the food was great! There are so many choices in Key West it can be mind bogling! Good Luck! :)
