Why Choose a Florida Keys Beach Resort for a Wedding Venue?

Why Choose a Florida Beach Wedding Cottage or Resort over a Private Beach House.

What is a Beach Cottage or Beach Resort?

A Florida Beach Resort, or also called a Wedding Cottage, is usually referred to as a small hotel or “Inn”. Comprised of roughly between 4 and 12 different units that are on the property. Beach Cottages are known to be very quaint and low-key and can be hidden gems with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean or the Florida Bay.

How much does a Beach Wedding Resort or Cottage Cost?

Unlike a Private Beach House or Resort Style Wedding Venue, A Beach Wedding Cottage or Resort may be a more practical and affordable option than the two mentioned above. 

Usually the site fees are pretty reasonable. Between $2,000 and $5,000 (at most) and covers the entire weekend of having a Rehearsal Dinner Party or a Farewell Brunch. 

What is the Difference?

There are many different reasons people choose a cottage over a hotel or private house to get married. One of the main reasons why people choose a cottage can be price and flexibility. A cottage usually stipulates that you can rent out all the rooms and avoid a site fee or have a minimal site fee compared to a Resort. Most cottages have the flexibility to hire your own vendors and bring in everything from the outside which can be a plus if you are budgeting for food and beverage and maybe want minimal décor. Cottages also allow more guests to stay on site compared to a private house. A private house usually only has one location where guests can sleep. while a cottage setting has multiple different structures to accommodate guests.

The best time to schedule tours, if possible, is 30 minutes before Sunset so you can see the property during the day and see what the property has to offer for lighting at night. Most of these properties have little to no lighting, so seeing it at night will give you a better understanding of what areas may need to be lit for the wedding festivities. Pay attention to the venue as a whole: Check out everything, including the restrooms, the foyer, the dressing rooms, and the outdoor lighting. You will want to be sure your vision can be realized at the location. Take plenty of pictures and write the pros and cons as you are visiting each property.

Questions I should Ask?

These should be some obvious questions when inquiring at a cottage and that should be listed on the rental contract.

  • What is the wedding site fee?
  •  What does the site fee include?
  • What is the deposit amount and is it refundable?
  • What is the maximum wedding guest amount?
  • How many guest(s) in total can the venue sleep ?- This will give you an idea of how many of your wedding guests that can actually stay on site and how many will need alternative accommodations. 
  • What is the average nightly rate and do you offer discounts for my guests? 
  • Additional Events: Can you host your Rehearsal Dinner here as well as brunch? If so, is there an additional site fee charge?

Additional Questions


  • Is there lighting on the property or do we need to bring lighting in from an outside vendor?
  • Not having lighting available can require additional costs that you were not expecting. 


  • Is there an outdoor restroom that guests can use –  
TIP: You should have at least 2-3 restrooms per 100 people.
–  Not having any restrooms available for guest can require additional costs that you were not expecting .


  •  Is there parking on site? If so, is it complimentary? Approximately how many cars can fit on site?
  • Not having onsite parking available can require additional costs in transportation that you were not expecting.


  • Can the venue accommodate a DJ or live band? What time does the vendor music have to be shut off? Can we plug in our own music system after the cut-off time?
  • Check where the outlets are located in your event space, because that will help you figure out where the band/DJ can set up and where other vendors can hook up their equipment. You do not want the head table to block the only outdoor outlet.


  • If you are set on having a Florida Wedding Venue that offers sunsets, be sure to ask where the sun sets during the time of year you are considering. Some couples are set on having a sunset ceremony, but depending on the time of year and property, you might not be able to see the sunset.


  • What is the policy for garbage removal for the day of my event? This is something you should inform your Caterer/Bar of.


  • Can I hire my own vendors (caterer, coordinator, DJ, etc.), or must I select from a preferred vendor list?
