I love Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama. It’s not Maui, but the beaches are pretty white and the prices for beachfront condos reduce significantly during the first or second week of August, so friends and family could stay at pretty nice places right on the beach for a good price.

Key West in December.  Check out the B&Bs for deals on wedding packages.  It’s cool that time of year but still warm enough to enjoy the beach, snorkeling, and golf.

San Diego!  One of the great things about SD is that the weather is incredibly consistent (aka always sunny, usually fairly temperate).  If I were to do a destination wedding there (which I might) I’d plan to hold it at a Hotel so that the guests could stay in one place and the hotel could manage most of the bigger logistics.  Hotels such as the following would be contenders

– The hotel del cornado

 – Tower23 

 – Pacific Terrace

@Paiger8:  Long boat key, FL


You can have your wedding at Longboat key Club there and there are plenty of places for people to stay that would be within their pricerange or they could all stay at the same hotel!

Key West/Key Biscayne, FL. Key West is very romantic and fun, it’s in the continental US yet feels like you’re in another country, very tropical. Easy to fly to from the east coast, a little cumbersome if you’re on the west coast, however. (If you fly into Miami, it’s about a 3 hr drive to KW).

  • Wedding: Central Park

Any beach along the Gulf of Mexico would work best. He sand is white and cool and the water is a beautiful teal. East coast florida is gray and dark blue and not very romantic looking.

I live in St. Petersburg, FL and work in St. Pete Beach, FL. SPB is gorgeous and pretty affordable. We’re getting married near the beach in July of 2013. But beware, Florida beaches in the summer are hot and full of people. A winter wedding in FL would definitely be more cost-effective and the beaches would be less crowded.
