@Jmbldr:  While my Darling Husband and I were on our honeymoon, we saw a couple getting married near the beach of our resort. The ceremony was held on a pier that jutted out from the beach, in front of a beautiful gazebo.

It was a short ceremony that involved what appeared to be a very small number of people (8-10 maybe.) The bride wore a spectacular ball gown and a beautiful veil, and her bridesmaid was dressed in a gorgeous Caribbean-Sea blue dress. 

Later that evening, Darling Husband and I saw the bride and groom and their small group of guests having dinner at the resort’s finest restaurant.

Perhaps you could do something like that. 🙂

I would forego a “wedding venue” altogether unless you want to be married in a church. A nice restaurant (preferrably with a private room) would be perfect for the reception.

Most romantic resorts have marrying couples in mind, so they have what Brielle mentioned in her post.. A small gazebo area usually meant for smaller parties.  For starters, you can check out the following resorts for ideas (usually the websites guide you through the wedding process!).. Many of these resorts are chains, so they’re in various tropical locales..

Sandals

Secrets

Excellence

Couples Swept Away

@RoelJm:  Thanks! After our HUGE cake and punch reception, we are doing something similar. An immediate family-only dinner at a local Italian place.

Have you thought about a B&B? Some of the ones Darling Husband and I have stayed at have lovely gardens, etc, and with the size of your guest list, you might be able to rent out all the rooms.

This opens you up to SO many places in the US- Charleston, New Orleans (if we had eloped, it would have been here), etc.
