FutureMrsKHBD:  You can sill have a lovely wedding. My first wedding was a dry afternoon wedding and reception because both my parents were alcoholics and I didn’t need the drama that would ensue with two drunk parents at a typical evening dinner and dance.

A dry wedding is perfectly acceptable.

FutureMrsKHBD:  Have you looked for park venues?  That might work for what you want!

From the Yelp link posted above:

– Market 17 is amazing! Just over the bridge from A1A, super close to your hotel. They also offer a dark dining experience. Not sure how wedding reception friendly that is. HA

– Seasons 52 is good, but it’s nothing special

– 15th Street Fisheries is a great location

– 3030 Ocean is wonderful food, but it’s inside the Marriott Harbor Beach. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, just a tip. I’m not sure if they have private rooms or not. I’ve stayed there many times.

– Coconuts is lots of fun, but super casual. We’ve got a few friends who work there.

– The Capital Grille is similar and next to Seasons 52, nothing special

– Truluck’s, also next to CG and S52. Meh.

– America’s Backyard, STAY AWAY.

– Casablanca Cafe was going to be one of my recs to you. Not sure about private room. Delicious food, just moments from your hotel, and across from the ocean.

– Foxy Brown – great brunch, no private room. Closer to downtown than the beach

– The Field, you do not want to have your party there

– YOLO – don’t waste your time.

– Green Bar, this is a vegan juice bar place.

– Southport Raw Bar, super casual, more like an ale house

– Rocco’s Tacos – don’t bother

– Blue Moon – I love it, but it’s not that close to where you’re staying. I’m not sure if distance is a factor.

I hope this helps a bit!

FutureMrsKHBD:  Dry doesn’t have the mean dry.  There are several wineries that do amazing non-alcholic wines and sparkling ciders.  People are coming to watch you two get married, you don’t have to have alcohol in order to have a rockin party.

renwoman:  Dry means non- alcoholic. It doesn’t mean you can’t have other beverages including non -alcoholic wines and ciders, but it would still be dry.

I book private dinners all the time for work.  Why can’t you just have a consumption bar?  If only four people are drinking it can’t be that expensive.
