Plan a Destination Wedding in Miami

  1. 1. Weddings have the potential to be the most exciting experiences of our lives, that’s why we take such great care in creating that special day. Will it be a small affair or major extravaganza? Traditional religious ceremony at a place of worship or destination wedding? Scenic weddings are constantly gaining in popularity because they contribute a naturally beautiful backdrop to such unforgettable moments. You don’t have to fly halfway across the world to enjoy an incredible destination wedding. With year-round warm weather, beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife and lighthearted atmosphere, Miami is a lovely place to exchange vows. Many couples choose to say “I do” in forest clearings surrounded by nature and still more prefer the soothing atmosphere of the beach. Whether having the ceremony ocean side or in the stunning ballroom of a nearby luxury hotel, a beach wedding could be the perfect fit and requires some very detailed planning.
  2. 2. There are so many beaches throughout the country to choose from! Maine, Virginia, Maryland and California are all fabulous locales for seaside weddings, but so is Florida. There are some truly amazing venues in Miami, such as the DoubleTree by Hilton Ocean Point Resort & Spa, so consider adding it to your list of possibilities. Regardless of whether the wedding ceremony, reception or both with be on the beach or in the hotel’s event hall, it’s worth considering when your wedding will actually be. Miami's beaches experience heavier traffic during the winter, spring and fall so setting a date after Memorial Day and before Labor Day will be less hassle and provide the benefit of lower costs without sacrificing lovely and sunny weather during the trip.
  3. 3. Let’s face it: planning a wedding is hard work! Never fear, though, you needn’t go it alone. Destination weddings require travel arrangements for the couple and guests, the possibility of having to obtain permits for a large number of attendees and so much more. That’s where a wedding planner comes in. Your planner can help you plan the event budget, select venders such as ceremony officiates and local DJs, coordinate with hotel caterers to design your reception menu and set up special decorations like flower arrangements or tents outside. Through it all, a wedding planner will ensure that your beach wedding is both flawless and enjoyable.
  4. 4. When it comes to your wedding dress, beachside festivities do play a role. Remember to bear in mind where you’ll be celebrating when choosing a dress, as long and heavy ball gowns probably aren’t ideal for warm weather or walking in the sand! Try for a shorter styles and lighter fabrics, and don’t forget practical shoes! Whether saying “I do” or partying the night away on the sandy beaches, high heels do not get along with beach terrain!
  5. 5. Uh-oh. You’ve spent so much time and effort on organizing each detail of the event that you almost forgot about wedding gifts. If you and your guest will be travelling a lengthy distance to your wedding venue in Miami, transporting gifts back home becomes a concern. There are, however, a few easy fixes. First, consider bringing extra, empty luggage to pack wedding gifts in. If you have an extensive guest list and believe the majority will give gifts instead of cards and cash (or you registered for very large items), it may become necessary to pay for transport of these items. You may opt to send your gifts home or arrange for a truck to pack everything into.
  6. 6. What better way to usher in a whole new life than in the upscale, wonderfully relaxing surroundings of the DoubleTree by Hilton Ocean Point Resort & Spa? This resort hotel takes the concepts of rest and relaxation to exciting new levels. The suites here can more aptly be described as apartments. After all, they feature sprawling floor plans, full kitchens, private terraces and washers and dryers.

After tying the knot, spend a few blissful days enjoying the upscale services of the spa. For fine dining, you don’t even have to leave the premises. Our distinctive Miami Beach restaurants are guaranteed to satisfy even the most sophisticated connoisseurs.
