Wedding Event Venues

Find the perfect setting for your special day to remember.

Event Venues

Our couples often choose the easy, simple & impressive Reception Cruise options and take advantage of our Reception Cruise expertise and booking services.   Our rates are the same as advertised by the cruise line. Yacht and Party Boat Reception options include sharing the dining room & the DJ; booking a deck for your group (called “Exclusive Seating”) or chartering an entire boat.

Ask our wedding concierge for pricing and much more. Want a whole boat to yourselves, but prefer not to pay the price for a dinner charter? The lunch charter is an amazing deal!  It includes the same features as an evening cruise. Although booking cruises provides one stop shopping, some couples prefer to do more organizing on their own & work with a venue that allows them to make more personalized choices.

Banquet Hall Receptions

Rather than all inclusive event venues, like the dinner cruises, brides who prefer the freedom of planning and coordinating receptions often opt for a banquet hall reception or a picnic reception. Banquet halls are free standing or inside a hotel or event center where the usual traditions of cake cutting and bouquet/garter toss can take place.

Couples who are talented with details and organizational skills find banquet halls; so they may decorate, choose all the vendors and coordinate their celebration. Like Reception Cruises, Banquet Halls allow have space for dancing and other entertainment.

Resort Receptions

Brides and grooms with larger guest lists and destination wedding groups often research Resorts for their event venues. Resorts have catering sales departments that provide catering services and vendor lists. Their suggestions include DJ’s, live entertainers and cake companies.

Within their wedding reception packages, hotel sales departments include tables, chairs, catering, bar service and linens. A few local hotels have deck space next to the sand for wedding receptions. Our Wedding Concierge will provide you with hotel and vendor suggestions.

Park Receptions

Rather than the more traditional experience of having a reception at a banquet hall, some couples choose picnic shelters for a more casual reception gathering. There are many beautiful parks in Pinellas County. These can be used for both the wedding and reception site. Check out Check out Pinellas County’s website for fees & restrictions please Pinellas County Parks for permit fees & restrictions please.

Friends may bring pot luck food, take out meals from places like Carrabba’s and Sonny’s BBQ or the family and friends can use the park’s barbecues for hot dogs, chicken or hamburger meals. Parks have restrictions on alcohol and availability after dark. Our Wedding Concierge can provide you with a list of local parks that are the right fit for you and your group. Ask our FREE Wedding Concierge for venue contacts as well, so you may make additional arrangements.

Unique Locations for a Wedding
and /or a Reception

Churches and municipalities also offer affordable pricing for banquet spaces. Couples who are budget minded, have time and are good at researching, coordinating and planning are most likely to choose free standing banquet halls. Ask our Wedding Concierge for lists of local places and services. These event venues are all inclusive and appealing to busy brides planning an easy and budget minded gathering.
