I am flying down the Florida next month to visit my sister and choose a wedding venue.
I’m looking for a venue on the beach (the whole “barefoot on the beach” rout). Any suggestions? I’m looking for anywhere in the Ft. Lauderdale / West Palm Beach area (and anywhere in between: Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, etc); I’m pretty flexible.
I’m fine with a “wedding package” place too.
I’ve looked at a few places online, but figured the locals might be able to help me out better!
I’ll probably only have time to look at 3-4 venues while I’m there, and I need to pick one right then!

Hey check out my venue! Woodmont country Club its very pretty he is amazing at negotiating he was also featured on Platinum wedding but doesn’t cost what a platinum wedding would! It is located in Tamarac which is near Ft Lauderdale just a little more west!

@FutureMrsChaney It’s pretty, but it’s not on the beach.

Here are a couple of places to check out in Delray Beach:
Crane’s Beach House: http://www.cranesbeachhouse.com
Wright by the Sea http://www.wbtsea.com
If you want an affordable wedding planner in the area (cheaper than most and she’ll get you great deals from vendors), check out http://www.weddingsandeventsfl.com. Priscilla can also officiate if you need that service. She would also know other places you might like.
There’s another beautiful place in Delray – Sundy House – but it’s not on the beach.

There is this place my planner recommended, Jupiter Civic Center, when we first spoke. It’s rustic but right on the beach. Just wrote a previous comment about my planner her name is Lauren Daversa with http://www.laurendaversa.com. She is really good.

A friend of mine got married at the Pelican Grande in Ft. Lauderdale, and it was just beautiful.

I settled on Coral Cove Beach in Jupiter FL.
@NotYourTypicalBride, I actually talked to Pricilla, my sister knows her! But when we crunched the numbers, we couldn’t afford even a resonably priced wedding planner. 🙁 She was really nice though!

i love coral cove park! I am in search of a venue too. How did it work our for you? Where did you have the reception? I live in Jupiter and have been struggling to find the perfect place so any suggestions you have would be fantastic!

@Jewel719 – It worked perfectly! Since it was just family and a few friends, we had a small dinner reception at Waterway Cafe after the wedding. (Then had a larger dinner & dancing reception back home at a later date.)
