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

On our first trip to the check out this venue, we knew it would be a great location. It has a very "Floridian" feel to it and our guests that stayed at the hotel definitely agreed. We had our wedding at the Presidential Ballroom and it was a great night. The hotel was very accommodating to our requests and questions throughout the process. We had our ceremony outside on the beach and they had all the chairs and arc setup bright and early the morning of for us to begin decorating. Likewise, the Presidential ballroom was also available to us the morning of to begin preparation. It took several of us 2-3 hours to get everything ready and when the time came, our guests loved the venue and the wedding was awesome. The sunsets on St Pete Beach were incredible ! We stayed a few nights at the hotel with some friends and family and we all enjoyed the hotel. The food at Bongos and Spinners were very good. The the customer service of the waiters and staff at the hotel were all excellent. The rooms in the hotel do need a little refreshing in terms of design but overall it made for an awesome wedding and a fabulous anniversary place to visit in future years.

Yes, the view is spectacular... as are the food and drinks, what makes this an amazing location is the staff! Tatyana was an AMAZING coordinator and addressed every concern we had (including several last minute, day of, completely out of the box requests from a few of our vendors). They include a cake from local vendor (Sweet Madness was amazing) as well a penthouse suite for a night.

But it was the little things: the ENTIRE staff from ground up were super sweet, kind, patient, professional, and helpful whenever possible. We had several family members with mobility issues, and they were so accommodating in helping provide transport and care. The room "rate" was very affordable for what is provided, parking priority for guests was appreciated, their coordination with vendor teams was outstanding [and their recommendations were appreciated]... and of course, accommodating our request to include a four-legged flower girl and have our pup join in the ceremony made it all worthwhile. If we had to do it again, we would not hesitate to book the Presidential Ballroom all over again.

Grand Plaza, Grand Plaza, Grand Plaza, Tatyana, Tatyana, Tatyana!!!! Oh my goodness, we had such an amazing experience with the hotel and honestly LOVED our coordinator Tatyana! The hotel is EXTREMELY helpful with any request/ wish you may have regarding your wedding. If it's possible they will make it happen! Literally every single staff member you come in contact with is so nice and very helpful. From Tammy at the front desk, to Rob the bell hop, to Patti at Bongos to Claudia (who approved our after-wedding-brunch) and many people in between- you are completely taken care of here! Above all, the most helpful, patient, easy-to- work-with, positive, upbeat, sweetest person we worked with was the best coordinator ever.. Tatyana!! She is amazing!! We must have exchanged 200 e-mails and dozens of phone calls! She was so quick to respond, and tried her hardest to get whatever we needed taken care of. She even pulled off the Brunch to end all brunches!!! haha She is truly a bride's best friend when planning a wedding. I also need to give some major props to another coordinator named Kate! She is so fun, helpful and easy to get along with. These girls are SO SWEET, any bride would be lucky to have either of these ladies helping to plan their wedding! Thank you so much Grand Plaza and everyone mentioned for all that you did to make our wedding the best day of our lives :)

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!!
