I would advice you to visit Pelican Grand to see why it's on the top list of Vendors in Ft. Lauderdale. When I first walked into the doors at the Pelican Grand, I knew this was the place for us to renew our vows. After contacting Janet and discussing with her our visions it was confirmed that we will be using the Pelican Grand. We stayed at the Pelican Grand a day before our event and after and we didn't want to go home. Each morning was amazing as we awoke to the rising of the sun as the rays beamed into our room off the balcony. The day of our event was spectacular. Our guest was speechless and continued to inquire about visiting the Pelican Grand. Our dinning in the Ocean 2000 restaurant was out of this world. The food was excellent from the appetizer to the desert. The staff treated us as we were king and queens and reassured us they had everything covered. Everything was just as we wanted it to be. This is a resort you will return to for many other celebrations. Thank you Janet, Derek, and all your staffs!

The top two things we were looking for in a venue when we started planning were bar and food. Well, the Pelican Grand delivered all of that and MUCH more. First, the hotel and rooms are BEAUTIFUL. When I went for the venue tour I almost cried it was so gorgeous. Second, you don't need a planner at all. The staff there made sure every moment was PERFECT. Third, our guests LOVED the food so much! We are complete foodies and every course was phenomenal! Cooked and seasoned perfectly. I wish we could relive the day over and over again, it was so amazing. Thank you so much Janeth and Chaz, we loved every second!

We had the most amazing wedding thanks to the team at the Pelican Grand. First off, the setting is unbeatable. The oceanview ballroom on the 11th floor has the most spectacular views of the ocean probably in all of Fort Lauderdale beach. Floor to ceiling ocean view! The staff couldn't be nicer, more flexible and more professional -- and it was like that from the first communication months before the wedding and all throughout the wedding day. For every little minor detail the answer was "no problem!" with a smile and they took care of it. We couldn't have been happier with the venue, and our guests felt the same way.

the Pelican Grand is a gorgeous place for a wedding! They have many different venues you can choose from at their location. The place is very well maintained and their staff knows what they are doing. It is one of the few hotels in Fort Lauderdale that is actually on the water and not across the street which is nice. The food was delicious. Janeth was our contact at the Pelican and she was GREAT. Always on top of things, very responsive, and catered to all our unusual needs.

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!

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.
