If you’ve always dreamt of a beautiful beach wedding, but you live in the Lone Star State and can’t exactly fly to the shores of Italy, cheer up! You have an absolutely breezy destination option in the “Venice of America”: the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel. Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, on the warm, sandy beaches of Florida, this landmark destination is only a plane hop away from Texas.
This iconic hotel was built in the 1950’s to appear as an ocean liner. Unique entertainment such as the Mermaid Show, could be viewed from The Wreck Bar. Today, this revitalized hotel will keep you and your guests in awe, not only with its contemporary décor and state-of-the-art technology, but also with the guest rooms’ panoramic views of the scenic Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, the hotel has photographs of its famous celebrity guests, such as Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio, on display in the lobby.
As if the perfection of the location wasn’t enough, the Sheraton offers to the happy couple these gifts: a personal event manager, a complimentary upgraded night of wedding accommodations, a bridal concierge to attend to all of your requests on the big day, a customized website detailing your special day, menu sampling and floor length linens and glass votives with candles, and a celebratory champagne toast.
You can choose from a variety of ceremony and reception options including, but not limited to a private sandy beach overlooking the pristine Atlantic Ocean, with white chairs and white carpet runner, as well as delicious dinner and cocktail packages, ensuring that your budget doesn’t hinder the luxury and style you deserve!
