I know which beach I want to get married on… the problem is deciding where to go afterwards!!
Has anyone got any suggestions of reception venues in and around key west? Its so difficult to plan a destination wedding from websites!!

@misslots2do: Hi there! You sent me a PM under my other account – it’s supposed to be deactivated, but apparently not. 😉 Thought I would share some pics with you. We’re getting married in Key West in May! The B&B in the pictures is called Old Town Manor (http://www.oldtownmanor.com).
The first couple pictures are of the garden area in the back. That is where we will have our reception. The last picture is the side of the house, and this is where we are having cocktail hour. We’re getting married someplace else as well. We’ve actually rented out this B&B for 3-full days and our family/friends will be staying onsite with us (making a weekend out of it). You can see options and pricing on the website. I don’t know when you’re getting married, so I can’t tell if there is avail already.
The lady who owns the place is fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about her and the property! I saw several different locations in Key West for our ceremony/reception (its a 3-hour drive for me so we’ve gone often). I’ve got all my vendors booked as well! If I can help answer any questions, let me know!
Best of luck!!

Are you guys using private wedding planners for your ceremonies on the beach? I have contacted one “wedding in a box” type company and they were unprofessional and snarky. Any suggestions would be helpful! Planning for KW is stressful!

@liss54: I actually had the same experience when I reached out to a wedding planner. They kinda snickered at my budget and seemed to want to put together this pre packaged wedding that I would simply show up for… when I actually wanted to have more uniqueness than that. Long story short, I’m planning everything on my own. I’m working with several great vendors and I feel confident that everything willl come together. You’d be surprised how many people are willing to sort things out over email with you. If I can help in any way – let me know!

I recently got married in KW at FT. Zachary Taylor! IT was amazing…
We rented out Old Town Manor for 3 nights. We held our rehearsal dinner in the backyard and did a slideshow with the B&B’s projector. We catered in Cuban from El Siboneye and it was amazing!!!
We had our actual reception at Croissants De France. Their food and cakes are amazing. The staff is super friendly. I recommend both of these places….
