With love in the air, The Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort offers a variety of settings for your very own storybook wedding. With the assistance of our on-site wedding coordinators every detail of your dream beach wedding will be brought to life, creating an amazing experience for you and each of your guests. Whether barefoot in khakis or in the finest of formal wear, guests love the opportunity to participate in nuptials as the sun seemingly sizzles away, afterwards adjourning into one of several beautiful ballrooms.

The Imperial Ballroom, located only a few steps from the powdery white sands of St. Pete Beach, allows seating for up to 200 guests. Large arched French doors frame the perimeter; opening to an outdoor marble patio that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, this ballroom allows the beach atmosphere to flow into the room effortlessly. Perfect in setting the ambiance for a magical beach event!

The Presidential Ballroom sits on the 10th floor and Penthouse level of the resort. With floor to ceiling windows this ballroom offers the most amazing views of St. Pete Beach, capturing every color of the sun as it sets into the Gulf of Mexico. Seating up to 118 guests, draped in white curtains and furnished with enchanted chandeliers this ballroom creates a look of a fairy tale dream come true.

With the Destination Wedding becoming ever so popular our wedding packages offer couples the choice of mini ballrooms which seat up to 40 guests. Your choice of casual and tropical to small and elegant we are sure to have something for everyone. With many years of experience in hosting guests from near and far, the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort is making quite the SPLASH! Read less

Wow, how do I ever say thank you enough to the Grand Plaza for hosting my perfect wedding?? They are beyond amazing at what they do - and boy do they do a lot! This was the only venue we had an onsite tour of and we didn't have to look any further after that and booked the same weekend (and book soon - they fill up fast!). I never had to worry about a thing during the planning process or on the big day. Their ceremony sites are well maintained and beautiful for that picture perfect FL beach ceremony we all dream of. And their ballrooms - wow. You cannot go wrong with any of the options there. We chose the downstairs Imperial ballroom for it's open space and the attached patio that we used for our cocktail hour. Food is fantastic and Barbara the Bartender comes with our highest recommendations! She is awesome at what she does and just so, so nice. Most of the coordinators there had their own weddings there BEFORE they ever worked there! What does that tell you?? Best value on the beach - seriously, it's a steal for a FL beach wedding!

A very special kudos to our coordinator Tatyana Adams who helped calm my nerves on more than a few occasions and was always readily available to answer my hundreds of questions throughout the process. She is a true professional and I cannot recommend her enough! Seriously, request her - she is the BEST!!

My husband, Jeff and I, were married October 29,2016. We looked at 5 vendors. The grand plaza being our 2nd. I didn't wanna look any further after seeing the presidential ballroom at the grand plaza! I was in love. We had a morning wedding so a view of the ocean during the whole ceremony! We were upgraded to a penthouse at no extra cost which was awesome cause when we booked our room to begin with we wanted a penthouse and none were available. We worked with Amanda at first and then Tori who was AMAZING! she was very responsive! Helpful! Made suggestions and didn't mind my "stressed out bride" emails I would send.. freaking out about the little things:) they had a beautiful bamboo arch we used at the wedding ... centerpieces were included which was awesome cause they were exactly what I wanted to begin with. The staff was super friendly! I had people coming up to me 2 days after the wedding saying "we saw you and you were gorgeous!" "I loved your tiara!" "Beautiful wedding!" Which was exciting to me that they remembered who I was! My wedding was with the resort ... my reception was at the resort and we stayed at the resort and it was all PERFECT!!

There is just not enough good words to say here. We went to view the hotel back in February planning an October wedding. Tatyana was amazing, you could simply not be in better hands. She had all the time in the world for us, no rushing and answered our many questions in detail and is so friendly. We were sent up to the roof top bar after for a drink and WOW, it's amazing. We booked the next day! The low deposit is so great and payments make it easier to budget. Our food tasting was spectacular, they sat is in the revolving restaurant and the food was amazing - literally every single food item we loved. We were planning a small wedding but it might as well of been a huge wedding for the time and effort Tatyana put into helping bring everything together for us. I wanted to do mini cocktails with cocktail sticks in the them for table assignments and she had no problem helping making it happen. Our ceremony and reception area I was able to decorate early which was great. The hotel room view is amazing too with the balcony. The presidential ballroom is breath taking - there is no other word. We took Tatyana's recommendations for band and photographer and oh my god does she know her stuff, we are extremely happy with both and would highly recommend them too. We loved everything and even continued the evening on the roof top bar with our guests the reception ended. Everyone adored the venue and seriously I put a huge amount of peoples enjoyment down to Tatyana's help in making it an amazing day. I wouldn't change a single thing. Please don't bypass this venue in your search for a wedding venue as you will not find better and I can hand on heart say you won't find a better day of coordinator. I hope hotel management read this and recognize that Tatyana is worth her weight in gold! We viewed 5 venues in St Pete and not one of the other coordinators had a patch on her and none other hotels had the wow factor that the Presidential Ballroom has. Thanks, Lisa

We held our reception at Grand Plaza on October 15th in the Imperial ballroom and it was absolutely AMAZING! We are so happy with our choice to use Grand Plaza and would highly recommend this venue!! We had the pleasure of working with Amanda and Kate for our wedding and they both were very responsive & helpful. They were truly a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process! We did not have to worry about anything for our reception because we knew Kate had everything under control. The cocktail hour food, drinks and reception food were delicious! We had countless guests let us know how much they enjoyed everything! The staff at Grand Plaza was phenomenal and the ballroom looked perfect. We cannot thank Grand Plaza enough for making our wedding so special!!!
