The Top 6 Most Affordable Wedding Venues in the Florida Keys

If you are looking to find an affordable wedding venue in the Florida Keys, you’ve come to the right place! But first, lets describe “What Does Affordable Mean?” and is it within your budget? 

Define ?

Usually, Affordable and Wedding or Wedding Venues aren’t really in conjunction with each other most of the time, and,  if anything, it is the exact opposite when it comes to a Florida Beach Destination Wedding.  Now we aren’t going to go into a blog like Nerd wallet discussing obvious cheap wedding venues like the Courthouse or Chapel. We are going to stick to desirable Florida Keys Wedding Venues and locations. 

Most Wedding Venues in the Florida Keys will spike up the price whenever you mention the word wedding. Somewhere, somehow, someone wanted to capitalize off two people being in love and it has stuck ever since. 

Don’t Despair, we are here to help you find an affordable wedding venue for your and your partner. 

 Affordable can usually vary depending on one persons budget to another. So here we will strive to focus on price average and price amounts rather than random ball park estimations. 

Before we dive into our Top 6 Affordable Wedding Venues in the Florida Keys, it’s good to know that there are several different types of weddings venues

Ceremony Only Locations

Ceremony Only locations are just that. Ceremony Only. These are going to be your most affordable options. Ceremony only locations are usually at some beautiful public beach parks and they require no site fee at all. These options are great for small (25 – 50 Guests)  ceremony only packages and then dinner at a nice restaurant. 

Ceremony & Reception Only Locations

Another Affordable Venue option are ceremony and reception wedding venues. These are great venues because they do not require any accommodations to be booked and everything is done directly onsite. Most Ceremony and Reception locations are going to be at Restaurants located directly on the water. These can be best for guest lists averaging at around 50 – 75. Your average site fee at these locations range from $1,500 – $2,000. 

Beach Resorts

Beach Resorts go into a little less affordable due to having a higher site fee but also there are several factors to include as well. Most beach resorts will require a “per night” stay allowing you and your guests to stay directly on site which can be alot of fun. The resorts will have a higher site fee most likely, but if they allow you to bring in your own wedding vendors, this is where affordable comes in to play. 

Beach Houses

Beach Houses are going to be our least affordable option, however, if you are needing a place to stay, and want to turn your wedding into a long weekend, these popular locations could be a great place. What makes beach houses affordable is that you can have rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and brunch all on site and not have to pay additional site fees.
