Hi bees, I’m getting married in Key West Feb. 2014 and am in a bit of sticker shock as to what the vendors are charging for wedding related services. I guess since it’s an island, they’re capitalizing on the fact we dont have many options to price shop.
Please share what vendors you’re using and if you’ve had any luck negotiating?

@chic_and_fabulous: We’re having our ceremony/reception @ the Hyatt Key West. I initially wanted to have it at the Audobon House near Mallory Square, but they dont allow for tents in case of rain and I coudlnt bring myself to risk it. I had little to no luck negotiating with KW vendors, but I shopped around A LOT so I feel like I explored all my options. lol These are the vendors I’m using:
Photography: Bob Care Photography
Florist: Love in Bloom
cake: Cakes by Karol
Chair Rentals: Prestige
Hair & Makeup: Studie Marie
Let me know if you have any quesitons!

We are doing a beach wedding for a very small number of guests with key west weddings to go– but hair/makeup for me and maid of honor is studie marie, cake is coming from Publix, and dinner is at the Strip House at The Reach. We are staying at Casa Marina. Our photographer is coming with us from New England.
Our package actually includes a cake from Cakes by Karol, but we wanted to save the top layer, so we are having that one packed to be frozen and we are cutting a publix cake.
Cocktails after dinner at Sunset Pier. We are only having 12 guests, so we couldn’t book a formal reception anywhere and that is fine. We plan to take it from Sunset Pier to Amigos Tacos after that for late night.
