15 Reasons Why You Should Have Your Wedding in Palm Beach
Here are 15 reasons why you should have your wedding in Palm Beach!
Sun, surf, sand…The trifecta that makes even the most opinionated family and friends psyched about the idea of a ‘destination wedding’, when they had been pushing for something more ‘low-key’, and near by.
Palm Beach is so romantic. Walk along the ocean, or walk along Worth Avenue, and though the price tags might be alarming, the beautiful old world styled buildings and perfectly manicured palm trees set the perfect mood for a wedding away.
Palm Beach has hosted some of the world’s most decadent, fabulous, stunning, gorgeous (you get it) weddings for some of the most swoon worthy celeb couples. To name just a few, Donald and Melania Trump tied the knot in 2005 at the famed Mar-a-Lago on the island. Michael Jordan chose to marry his wife Yvette on the island in 2013. Both New York Yankee, Nick Swisher and talk show host Rush Limbaugh set there sites on the island for when they said ‘I do’, and The Breakers hosted them both.
Number 5 isThe Breakers. This resort features the best of all worlds and if you have the budget to accomodate the price tag, some might say, choosing this local for your wedding is a no brainer. The structure is reminiscent of old world europe, while the option to get married on the atlantic ocean is a major plus. The food, rooms, staff and food are all rave worthy, as are their grounds for pictures, pictures, pictures!
West Palm Beach is just a bridge away. West Palm Beach sits just to the west of Palm Beach Island and offers more low key, affordable and fantastic dining and hotel accommodations. The night life is more Florida-casual and can also be a little rowdier for guests looking to hit a few local bars the weekend of the wedding.
Cucina dell Arte is a fine italian dining experience the whole family can not just enjoy but savor. And then…the lights go down and the tables are moved to make way for a dance floor that will be jam packed from 11 pm until 2 in the morning on any given night during season (November-April). Patrons of all ages dance, drink and enjoy what regulars have come to expect from Cucina, an intimate yet lively night spot within a mile of the breakers and situated right on one of the main boulevards on the island.
The world class shopping along Worth Avenue would make any shopping enthusiast swoon. Anchored by Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue and speckled with superb high end designer boutiques, jewelers, and little restaurants up and down the street, Worth Avenue is an experience in and of itself even if window shopping is all you would like to accomplish.
Service, service, service. The Palm Beach community expects nothing short of 5 star service. And you too, will realize that service is an important factor when hosting an event such as a wedding. You and your guests will feel completely taken care of.
Palm Beach has the luxury of being close to a multitude of entertainment hubs. Miami, Orlando and the smaller cities in between are hosts to various acts and entertainment experts who are readily available for special occasions.

Get creative or cater to family and friends coming to celebrate from afar by offering authentic Cuban, Islander, South American, Spanish, Italian, and French cuisine.
