A traditional wedding is typically held at a church, home, or garden. But as Americans become more mobile with friends and family living thousands of miles away, a destination wedding in Florida has become more and more popular.
Rather than worrying about wedding issues, brides are now opting for a destination wedding in Florida. A destination wedding is one that is centered around getting married at a particular place that is not close to home. Often it is a tropical or romantic location.
Florida offers brides many options when it comes to weddings.
Miami is the top spot for destination weddings in Florida. The city offers a ton of affordable hotels for guests, lots of nightlife, and beaches. If you do not want to get married on the beach, there are many beautiful places that are non-beachside that are photogenic, and guests will love being indoors especially if it is windy or rainy.
The Keys come in second for the best place for a destination wedding in Florida. The Keys are informal, easygoing which makes planning a wedding almost stress-free! There are many meaningful places for an intimate wedding such as Ernest Hemmingway’s residence, a civil war-era fort, and many resorts.
Tampa, Florida is third and plays hosts to tons of attractions and activities. Tampa is home to 297 acres of animals, live shows, and shopping at Busch Gardens amusement park. Busch Gardens is less expensive than Disney World and includes many themed lands. Wedding guests can also visit the 20,000 marine animals at the Florida Aquarium which will take at least three hours to see everything.
Number four on the list is Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is a true beach town with plenty of beaches and beach activities for everyone. Fort Lauderdale is dotted with charming streets, food and drinks, shopping, and cocktails.
