Just wanted some advice as I’m planning a wedding next November, but would ideally like to have a beach wedding and an outdoor reception – looking at venues in the Keys and also north of Naples. Am I crazy?! Will my guests all freeze and get hypothermia?! Any experiences welcomed!!

@misslots2do: Thought I would reply to this post as well. I think you’ll have better weather in the Keys than in Naples in November. It’s mid-November and the weather is still gorgeous in South Florida… low 70’s in the morning and low 80’s in the evening. It’s perfect. Though, after dark, it does tend to get a little chilly because of the breeze – but I am saying this because I am a Floridian and it’s made me a total wimp! Not sure where your guests are traveling from, but if its someplace COLD with SNOW, they won’t be complaining!! You could always rent a couple space heaters as well, just in case … all the rental places have them!

Youll be fine!! Sounds lovely! I was just in my best friends wedding 2 weeks in Daytona Beach and it just so happened to be the first real cold front of the season soo we were a little chilly but not “hypothermia level” cold lol.

I just got married in the Keys a couple of weeks ago and the weather was a bit chillier than usual, but still GORGEOUS. November is ideal in South Florida for a couple of reasons: it’s after the hurricane season, so rain is much less likely than at other times of the year, and it’s OFF SEASON so hotel and venue rates are lower.
I had the most SPECTACULAR wedding at the Coconut Palm Inn in Tavernier (upper Keys, between Islamorada and Key Largo). It’s a small, bayfront inn with 17 rooms. My wedding guests took over the entire resort for the weekend and we had a blast. This hotel caters to weddings – everything is outdoors, including the ceremony, dinner and dancing on the sand. You can bring your own caterer (I highly recommend Caribbean Caterers) and save $$ by doing your own liquor.
I’m uploading a few pictures of the place so you can see how beautiful it is… if you have any questions, don’t hestitate to message me!
