Trying to find our Florida location -- help?

Recommended Posts

After trying to plan a monster wedding back home for 200+ people near Pittsburgh, my fiance and I are now heading back to one of our original thoughts - which was a Florida wedding.  Trying to decide on a location that has some of the following attributes -- any suggestions?

 

- Affordable beach houses around for family

-Things to do other than just the beach so they can make a vacation out of it.

-Would love to be near a Royal Caribbean cruise port

- love the white sand beaches

- places with some privacy options to minimize gawkers to our ceremony

 

 

After all this we were looking at Siesta Key but it seems like a NICE but small place according to some things I am reading online.  Also picking a place to run the ceremony is SO hard. There are a lot of them and really hard to make the best decision.  We would prefer a real pastor over an officiant but want to work with someone to set up the ceremony -- any places that you know of allow this?

I'm having the same problem. Would love a Florida wedding but don't know where to start. I would like to make it a family vacation as well so a beach near Disney would be great. Anyone?

Ludlow - closest beach to Orlando is Cocoa Beach. It's 1 hour.  I did look into Beach Weddings by Joanie in Cocoa Beach and she was really nice.

 

If you dont mind the drive, Siesta Key is 2 hours away and was rated the most romantic beach in Florida, #1 beach in the continental USA, etc. Seems beautiful.  If we do this in Florida, I am pretty sure Siesta Key is where it will be.  It's close to Tampa, and a lot of things. 

 

 

I would look into Cocoa or Siesta.  Cocoa is on the atlantic side and Siesta Key is on the gulf.  Siesta key has the white sand beaches and everything.

 

It's a tough decision I agree! But Siesta Key seems popular.

Please let me know what you find. We are also looking into a small family wedding at either Coco or Siesta Key Beach. Our wedding is a year away but we would like a house we could just walk out and be on the beach. Siesta Key is beautiful . Pleases keep me informed. Thanks
