We had the very best wedding day at the Pelican Grand! Janeth was so great to work with throughout the whole process, very responsive and helpful from the first time we looked at the venue up until our actual wedding. The venue and views of the ocean are absolutely beautiful and the food and service can't be beat! There is not one thing I would change about the experience and highly recommend it to anyone looking to get married in the Ft. Lauderdale area!

Excellent food, service and vibe that we couldn't find anywhere else. Chris & Kristi

Amazing venue! On ft. lauderdale beach there are not any hotels that compare with the Pelican for those that want a beautiful and intimate wedding along the beach of ft. lauderdale. We did our wedding on the South Rooftop and had our cocktail hour on the Verandah and Reception in the Atlantic Pavilion. The pictures from our wedding are BEAUTIFUL - views from the rooftop cannot be beat. Our guests loved the hotel because it feels like a secluded resort but is still close to downtown and beach place if your guests want to go into town. Janeth was an awesome wedding coordinator and the entire wedding staff was very helpful and on-point. Janeth was great with communicating and getting back to me throughout the entire wedding planning process - she was also very honest about recommendations on local vendors which was hugely helpful and saved my wedding day! thank you!

The Pelican is a true slice of heaven in every way. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and never stepped foot at the Pelican until the week of my wedding. After researching many venues, i came across the Pelican then spoke with Janeth. Besides the beauty of the resort, Janeth pretty much sold me. She is THE BEST coordinator a bride could ever want or ask for. She is so helpful, and quick to respond to the questions i had prior to the wedding.

The Pelican itself is magical. Words cannot describe the beauty of it, and staff became our friends. They were all so friendly and just awesome. Our whole group of 30 had such a wonderful time. We will be back over and over again. It is Perfect in every single way possible.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this venue. Janeth, the coordinator, was ABSOLUTELY fantastic and made sure that the entire day was a total breeze. We met with Janeth many times prior to our wedding, as well as emailed a gazillion times, with a side of numerous phone calls. She was extremely pleasant every single time. She also helped with tips and ideas for some things we had no idea on. My mother and I didn’t hire a wedding coordinator and we did it all ourselves, and Janeth actually thought we were the planners at first! Janeth was there on the Sunday of the wedding, all the way until Chaz took over at the reception. Chaz was outstanding and made sure everything was smooth and perfect for the reception. He even forced me and my husband to eat! Which is a very good thing bc brides and grooms never wind up eating and oh boy were we starving! Not a single thing went wrong during the entire day at the Pelican Grand, well actually, the ENTIRE weekend was perfect! We had a total of 35 rooms at the hotel, and not one guest had an issue. The entire hotel staff was so friendly and pleasant.

Beautiful venue for my intimate wedding with a guest list of under 20 people! We had the wedding and the reception in the same cozy A-frame house that overlooked the beach. The best selling point: the feeling of being at the beach, but with the luxury of air conditioning!

First of all, this place is GORGEOUS! I got so many compliments about how picturesque everything was. My friends called it a "Corona Commercial" because of how stunning the views, ocean, and hotel itself was. I can't imagine how this place could have been better. As a true testament to how perfect of a venue this was for a destination wedding, our guests didn't leave the hotel ALL weekend. There was that much to do. Ah, it was perfect!

Our coordinator, Christy, was 100% with me every step of the way. She was so great about working with me all the way form Ohio. I kept changing my mind about things I wanted or didn't want, and she was always so patient with me. We customized many aspects of our wedding and reception, and they assisted with every single step. Christy kept me calm and even sent us a heartfelt congratulations letter that she left in our honeymoon suite.

The food was fantastic! I ate a little of everything but not too much of anything because I was too excited! The serving staff went above and beyond to make sure my guests were happy. Honestly, I’ve never heard so many compliments about a location before. Everything went perfect. I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue for anyone with a wedding of less than 75 people. One word to sum it up: PERFECT.
