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?

I don't think they offer anything cheaper. But their food was great! Everyone loved it!!

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.)

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

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
