We're honeymooning there, but would love to hear all about the resort and see pics when you return!!!  Sorry I'm not much help!  I've found some great reviews on tripadvisor though! :)

We just got married there. I hated it and loved it... It's such a long story. Pm me if you are interested. I will post pics and stuff soon.

I've stayed at the hotel, so I can comment on that. The hotel is breathtaking. Excellent service, good food, beautiful beach. My only complaint is that it was somewhat BORING! I'm positive it has to do with the price, there just weren't a lot of guests when we were there. I like to people-watch and there wasn't much of that to be had. It would be a great place to honeymoon, though wink wink! I'm sure if you're bringing the party there, you will love it. It really is an amazing property.

I am planning on getting married there but have been running into some BIG problems with a complete lack of communication between myself and the wedding coordinator....to the point where I am having serious reservations (after visiting there twice and LOVING it) about getting married there.   Anyone else having a problem with these people??

Yes I got "married" there. It would have been perfect if the WC didn't try to scam us. Read my past posts. I still don't have my marriage license. They keep emailing me asking for more legal documents. They said the judge will make an exception for me (6months after the ceremony). I hope they rot because they ruined it for us... I spent our wedding night crying in the lobby because of their shenanigans. Now I am spending all this money to prevent identity theft. My advice... Get married at a hotel with US headquarters (where consumers have rights) or simply do the symbolic ceremony on your own or go to Mexico... I wish I did.

We were actually planning on just doing the symbolic ceremony - I didn't feel like going through the hassle of bringing our documents there and now I'm double glad!  I'm sorry you went through all that :(  How was the wedding planner there for you (aside from everything else?)

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
