In regards to the reception at the Hilton in Clearwater, from what they sent me the food starts out at $100pp. We were wanting something cheaper and simpler do you know if they do anything for less?

Hilton is a little expensive. Would you be able to recommend any other places for a small but elegant reception?

Hi. I'm having my wedding in Clearwater in October. We are also having our ceremony in Sand Key Beach! Our reception will be at the Wine Cellar a few miles down the road in North Reddington Beach. We are having a smaller wedding around 60ppl, but the Wine Cellar is a restaurant that can hold over 100 people in their reception hall. They have several wedding menu options, the least expensive one being $50+ per person. You can check our their wedding packages on their website the Wine Cellar Fine Dining - Award wining Fine Dining Restaurant North Redington Beach Quality Service and Gourmet Food- Weddings, Special Occasions, Catering and Banquets. They also have a reasonable charge for the room. After looking around at reception places in Clearwater/St.Pete area, we found that hotels were just out of our budget.

 

How many people are you planning on having at your wedding? There were other places I looked into but they were for smaller (<75ppl) venues. If you want more info let me know.

 

I may have some pictures of sand key beach if you would like me to post, and if i can figure out how to do that wink.gif

 

Hope this helps!

I'm based here in the Pinellas area and know of a few great vendors to recommend.

 

Makeup by Donna Camposecco. She worked for many years on the sets of HSN and had specialized experience makeup that will hold up in hot, outdoor conditions AND look great on camera. If you'd like, pm me, and I can send your her info.

 

D.J. Chris Craze - worked with him at a wedding recently and he was a lot of fun, very lively and had great music selection. He also DJ's at the Floyd's Nightclub inside the Seminole Hardrock Hotel & Casino in Tampa. I think his site is DJ/VJ CHRIS CRAZE TAMPA , FL

 

Florists - I've heard rave reviews and seen amazing work by the Redman Steele Floral Studio.

 

That's about all I can think of right now, though I'm sure there are more I'm missing! :)

 

Best of luck to you in your planning! I'm sure it will turn out beautifully. I know the Tradewinds has gorgeous beachfront and is a well know resort here. :)

Tee... also forgot to mention, if you're still looking for a reception venue in the area, there is a really cool, modern space at the Nova535 Art Gallery in St. Pete. It is a very urban-chic, renovated 1920's loft-style space with exposed brick, hardwood floors and 18 foot ceilings. I know that they also do menu planning and food service, though I have no idea about their pricing. They have that info on their website though, I'm pretty sure. (Some photo galleries there too that show the space.)

 

Overview : Space Rental : NOVA 535

 

Just an idea, though I'm not sure where you're specifically looking for a reception venue. :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
