FL wedding receptionsPlanning on a wedding reception in sunny Florida?

Whether it's formal or casual, indoor or outdoor, Florida has everything you need to make your wedding one to remember!

From Orlando to Miami, or Jacksonville to Tampa/St. Pete, the Sunshine State offers some of the country's top choices in traditional hotel reception or banquet halls.

You both will probably devote about 50 percent of your wedding finances to the reception, so it's always best to shop around at least 6 months to a year in advance to find exactly the kind of reception venue that fits both your style and your budget.

Of course, a personal visit is always necessary to scope out exactly what a particular venue can offer. Besides the dinner and food sample tasting, also find out if the facility is big enough to hold all your guests. Is there enough parking?

In addition, can they recommend trusted outside vendors like florists, photographers or DJ's? Is there a backdrop where wedding photos can be taken? (And, on a more practical note -- you certainly don't want your perfect day to hit a down note with bathrooms or other amenities that aren't in pristine condition!)

Keep in mind unusual venues like historic museums, Orlando theme parks, beach wedding locations and other recreational sites available statewide — promising unique surroundings and tons of special photo opportunities for your one-of-a-kind wedding album.

Wherever you choose to have your Florida reception, keeping within budget is one of the most important considerations for pulling off a memorable wedding while still having cash left over for the honeymoon!

Cash-strapped couples especially should look into reception venues that offer flexible packages, or work with event coordinators to discuss various options that help to defray costs while still pulling off a reception that will be remembered for a lifetime.
