Siesta Key? St Pete?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to this site & just joined! (: Anyway, we are planning a destination wedding on West Coast Florida from Michigan. I have visited Siesta Key several times & would absolutely love to get married on that beach! However, I cannot find a reception area. (Considering renting the pavilion located on the beach but not sure) We have a small budget & I want the reception to be on beach as well. We will only have approximately 30 guests. One option I've come up with is the Helmsley Sandcastle Hotel, which is on Lido Key Beach (never been) but their banquet room doesn't have any view of the beach/water :/ As a result of not finding much, I am also considering St Pete Beach. Our wedding will be in October of next year. If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know (:

Oooo! That sounds great! I have only been to Siesta Key once and it was beautiful. But I can't recommend anything - sorry!


I am getting married in Naples in January - so glad to see another Florida destination bride on here! Good luck planning! Let me know what you end up finding!

I've never been to Siesta key, but spent a lot of time around naples. Sometimes you're hard pressed to find venues on the beach in the keys because of real estate... you could always try further north, like Naples or Sanabel.


I also did a bunch of research into Ft Lauderdale venues, if you'd be interested in info on those :)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
