There are so many wedding venues down here in the Florida Keys. They all have different pros and cons and when choosing a venue there are many things to consider. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing wedding venues in Islamorada;
An obvious one but important. You don't want to kill your budget with the venue, there is plenty more to spend on from there. Otherwise you will end up with a great location and surroundings but you will have to skimp on things like decor, flowers and food.
You will need to have at least a rough estimate of how many guests you will be having because most all locations will have a maximum amount of people aloud on property. These limitations are for good reason, not only for safety but in some cases it just plain won't work.
When having a destination wedding here in the keys this will involve travel for your guests. Make sure it is with in a reasonable distance from accommodation that will suit your guest's budget. Also be sure there is ample parking available at your desired location. If you are having the ceremony at a separate location be sure it is within a reasonable driving distance and try to account for traffic. Make the drive yourself a few times to clock the time. Another factor here in the keys is oceanside vs bayside. While you will still see a colorful sky at sunset time on the oceanside you do not get a full on sunset like you do on the bayside. So if sunset is must then you will have to consider bayside properties.
Think about what type of event you want. Will your wedding be formal, informal, traditional or non-traditional. You want your venue to reflect this style.
