Any Ideas for A One Stop Shop Beach Resort?

Recommended Posts

So I live in Texas and want to plan a destination wedding at a beach resort in Florida. Was thinking somewhere along the west coast of FL. My dream is to find a beach resort where all my quests can stay, where we can have our ceremony overlooking the ocean, have our reception, and then have everything else done through them (cake, dj, flower, hair/makeup, ec)...... We are looking to keep the budget very reasonable and wasn't sure if anyone had any suggestions???

You can check out the Sandpearl resort or the Sheraton Sandkey - both are in Clearwater.  Their websites look nice, although you need to submit an RFP to get a price quote so I have no idea on budget.

I got married in Islamorada at the Islander Resort in July and was really happy with it.  It was affordable (well if you can call anything wedding related affordable! haha!)  The Islander is right on the beach and has plenty of space for guests.  We had the ceremony and reception on their beach.  Right across the street is a restaurant/bar called Lor-e-lei that has amazing sunset views and had my rehearsal dinner there.  My guests were happy that they didn't have to drive anywhere once they got there (it's about an hour and half drive from Miami.)   I rented a party bus for about 20 friends that wanted to see Key West.  It was a blast!

I'm also getting married at the Islander in Islamorada florida. So far Casey has been great and was willing to work with us on prices since we are having a small wedding, about 30 people. They don't supply a cake, DJ, flowers and such but they do send you a booklet with recommendations and that helps A LOT! We are having the ceremony and reception there and rhey supply table decorations, tiki torches, ect. I make it to the Keys about once a month and researched a lot before deciding the Islander was the best place for the price. Hope this helps!

I am looking for the EXACT same thing and the best deal that i have found has been the club med sandpiper. They offer a free wedding package if you have 20 adults stay for a minimum of three nights (at $170 per person per night). It is an all inclusive resort so you do not have to host your own private reception if you want to save money (since all of your food and alcohol are included with your stay you can ask them to reserve a section of one of their restaurants for your reception, but that means no private dance floor/music) but we want to do our own private reception and for an open bar for four hours, cocktail/appetizer hour, and 3 course meal i was quoted $106 per person and DJ for four hours for about $1200. I am not sure about decorations/centerpieces and such, but it does include the tables, chairs, plates silverware, bartender, servers, ect. Dont know if this is what you are looking for, but thought i would share! Let me know if you want any more information about this option!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
