With so many getting engaged this season, thoughts of love began to ponder and that giddy feeling takes over the soul. Miami has many beautiful venues for weddings with a collection of stylish and sophisticated venues for any budget. Venue styles vary from romantic spots on the beach to elegant in door intimate decor under a breath taking chandelier, its all here. When it comes to beach preferred weddings its much easier plan through one of the city's many hotels, that offer wedding packages rather than gather permits and dealing the the hassle.
Outdoor wedding venues in Miami are popular and a personal fave, but you have to keep in mind the season. The gruesome hurricane season begins end of June through November, and a storm can disrupt either an indoor or outdoor wedding. It often rains during the summer or its very hot and humid, making an outdoor wedding between June and September a huge gamble with the expectancy of it all. Winter may seem like the safest bet, but you might run into a cold front in January or February. I think its safe to say creating a save the date is a pretty tough challenge, but once you execute a location it makes it that much easier. Here are some of the best Miami wedding venues, listed in no particular order. If the location made the cut trust its official!
