- Wedding: October 2013
I am so frustrated at the moment searching for the perfect venue for my wedding on 10/19/13. My fiancé and I know exactly what we want but it just doesn’t seem to exist in Martin or palm beach counties.
We would like to have a ceremony on the beach or overlooking the water with a semi-formal to dressy casual reception near by. We do not want the standard cookie cutter ballroom or country club reception, but also don’t want to go with a budget venue that looks like we were skimping on our guests. While elegant palm beach locations are nice I cannot justify spending $150+ per person on food and alcohol. It seems so wasteful on a party when the ceremony is the true important part.
What are some fantastic middle of the road options in the area? We are willing to go as far north as vero beach or south to ft. Lauderdale. Would prefer to stay outside of miami-dade county, but will entertain suggestions if its a nice location. I was also thinking about a wedding in sarasota or st. Petersburg since the beaches are far more beautiful and you have the sunset, but my fiancé thinks it would be too complicated to plan from here (We live in Jupiter).
i have tried to whittle down our guest list, but can’t seem to drop it below 100. Any help for suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I would love to settle on the venue ASAP so I can finally move on to other things. Thanks in advance for the assistance!
