So I'm a newbie to this, but I'm looking to get some information/help from anyone who can give it! My fiance and I decided to go with a Key West wedding next August with about 30-35 of our closest family and friends in a laid back, less stressful manner!! I have been looking at different places online for the ceremony and receptions, but haven't committed to anything yet. I really like Southernmost on the beach for the ceremony since they have the wedding arch and chairs and everything included, but would like it even more if it wasn't priced so high. I noticed that a lot of people are talking about Smather's Beach, but I was wondering where you got the arch/chairs from for your guests. Since we are having close to 30 people, it would be nice for them to be able to sit down. Also, I noticed that a lot of places have officiant's included in their wedding packages, but I was wondering who you used and how much the rates usually are.
I've never been to Key West, so its hard for me to decide on where we are going to have the reception. Us, along with the rest of our family and friends are from Michigan, so since everyone is going to being making the trip for our wedding I would like to be able to pay for the reception dinner.....but not go broke doing so!!! Any help and input is greatly appreciated!!!!
