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!

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
