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.

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! :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
