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!!

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. :)

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
