The venues were all gorgeous! The staff was professional and very prompt in all of our emails and phone calls. The only reason I gave them a 3.5 for value was because they were asking for a large amount of money for the venue, and catering. It didn't include lighting, decoration, a dj, a photographer etc.. Beautiful venues, great people, but definitely for those who have a large budget to spend on their wedding.

We started planning our Wedding a year prior, so a lot of money and effort went into the "perfect day". My husband and I are not picky or high maintenance but we felt like we were taken advantage of immensely. A few months after planning with Brynn, the previous Wedding Coordinator, she had left for another job. Then we were introduced to Kristin, who turned out to be amazing and on top of everything. She made me feel confident that my day would go without a hitch. Plus after all the MONEY and TIME we spent planning this once in a lifetime Wedding, it was good to trust someone with your special day.
Two days before the big day I get an Email (NOT a phone call) that Kristin is going to be out of town because of a Emergency. So I was then appointed to her boss. TWO days before the day! The person I spoke to over months and months of emails and phone calls was not going to be at the Wedding I had planned for a year! You could imagine my how stressed I was.
Her boss then reaffirmed me that everything would be fine. So I took a leap of faith and trusted him. I knew I should of trusted my gut instincts instead... Well let me continue with the moments that went WRONG that weekend...
The Wedding Day: Everything went great until the end of the Ceremony when the "Wedding Coordinator" said his quick goodbye and left for the rest of the night. Kristin (my original Coordinator) told me that she would be around until Dinner was served to make sure everything went according to plan. Well that did not happen. When we got to the Rehearsal, there was no direction with food, service, or hospitality. My bridal party went a long time without food and drinks. I had to search for "someone in charge" to serve my Wedding Party. They had ONE bartender (very slow) for the whole Wedding. My guests had no direction as to when to come in to be seated. I should not be doing there job on OUR WEDDING DAY! This is what I paid thousands and thousands of dollars for!!!!!

I am being more harsh on my review of LBK, due to an issue with the beachfront and the lack of responsiveness on the part of Management. My wedding coordinator, Lauren Kincaid, was wonderful. I don't want this to reflect poorly on her, as her hands were tied. After the signing of my contract, the resort changed management. While this was a destination wedding for me, my parents live on the neighboring barrier island of Lido Key. We searched many other places, but chose LBK because of the privacy. I also fell in love with the long boardwalk that served as my aisle. Prior to signing the contract, we had asked about a contingency plan if the beach eroded. We were told that they planned on having a beach renourishment. One month before my wedding, my Dad took a friend down to show him the location. The spot where we were getting married was completely underwater, and my Dad had to be the one to break the news to me. I promply notified LBK, and they presented me with two other layouts - neither of them acceptable to me. We escalated the issue, and were told that they had planned to get a permit to work on the beach. This dragged out for a few more days. Long story short - the beach was partially filled in, to the best of their ability. In the end, it didn't take away from the beauty on my wedding day. I just didn't need the additional stress of a potential "Plan B". We also had an issue with my husband's room he booked on Friday. Scott's room wasn't even available until after our rehearsal dinner. The next day, my wedding day, I get a call around noon that they needed his room because it was booked. I had to go down to the front desk and explain that our wedding coordinator took care of the rooms, and surely she would have intended for Scott to have a place to get ready for the wedding. Since Scott was golfing, I had to pack him up and move him to another room. Since when does $370 a night equal a less than 24 hour stay?

I cannot say enough good things about Longboat Key Club and Resort. Cloe and her team were incredibly helpful and made sure everything went smoothly. The beach ceremony was beautiful, and the reception at the Island House was perfect, including the food and bar. The resort itself is a wonderful vacation spot. I would highly recommend this venue for a beach wedding.

We had our wedding at the Longboat Key Club and it was amazing. The location couldn't have been a better place. The ceremony was on the beach and the reception was on the golf course. However, I was a little disappointed with the people we were working with up until the wedding because they didn't really make an effort to accomodate our needs. On the other hand, everyone had a wonderful time at the wedding and said everything came out wonderful.
