St. Pete Beach

Recommended Posts

Any St. Pete Beach brides out there?

I'm having my wedding at the Tradewinds Resort (Sandpiper) and am looking for any good suggestions, general information, good vendors, etc. I live in VA so I'm doing this "sight unseen". Fortunately my aunt and cousin scouted out the venue and gave it the thumbs up, but planning from far away will surely be a challenge!

Hi! I wish I could help, but I've just begun my planning for a wedding at the Tradewinds in March of 09...but please keep me in mind if you come across anything worth sharing. When's your big day?

Oops didnt see this thread before I posted on the other one.

 

I think you'll be happy with the Sandpiper and St. Pete's in general - such a great area!. There are a lot of great options in that area too for any guests who aren't able to stay with you (for whatever reason). Just down the beach there are some great condos that are super reasonable, especially if there is a group of people who want to go in on one together.

Hi KellyandMatt08,

Where in Clearwater Beach are you getting married? What company are you going through?

A great place to get married would be the Grand Plaza Resort on St Pete Beach. The Presidential Ballroom has a 180 degree view of the entire coast! The sun sets right over the water there as well!

 

As far as a DJ....Dan at Sunset DJ is THE best. I've worked with him several times, and even had him DJ at our wedding. He keeps things going, and even when something goes awry, he picks up and keeps going without missing a beat.

 

A great place to hold the rehearsal dinner would be Crabby Bills. It's almost walking distance from the Grand Plaza Resort, and right on the beach. Right next store there are several little tiki huts on the beach...with several bars to boot! Great food, with a smashing view!

 

Let see what else...if your into having a violinist...I know a great one that I've worked with before. Her name is Carol Stickers. PM me for her email, as I am not sure that she would want it posted on a forum. I have to respect her.

 

For floral, theres Flowers by Design. For a baker theres Cakes by Carolyn. For a MUA who does nails as well...her name is Jen. Her email is jgpanagos@hotmail.com. I know she wont have a problem with her email being up here.

 

Hope this helps you guys out a bit! Good luck with the planning and congrats!!! So super exciting!

Hi! We got married at the Hilton in Clearwater Beach. We didn't go through anyone. The hotel has a coordinator and did some research on my own. Let me know if you have anymore questions! Our wedding was perfect!! pinkie.gif

Clearwater Beach is amazing. This was actually my 4th trip down there in the past 5 years!! Everything is within a mile so we recommened to our family and friends to not get a rental car. We had one for the first day just to get some of the bigger things done (cake and marriage license). We flew into Tampa Airport. They have shuttles there that can take to you Clearwater for $21 pp.

Our wedding was on the beach at the Hilton with our reception inside the hotel. I wanted everything in once place! It was definitely less hassle that way.

No pictures yet! But if you go to the hotels website you can find plenty of the beach and hotel. I would definitely recommend that hotel. We got a great group rate for our guests too.

Let me know if you have anymore questions. I would love to help!!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
