Florida Bride - West Coast Wedding {Clearwater Beach/Tampa area}

I need some recommendations for venue options and vendors!  I am starting from scratch.. .I have a small list of florists, cake places to call and ask for quotes but that's all!  I need vendor recommendations for a caterer, ceremony site (private/semi-private beach wedding), reception (looked at Carlouel Yacht Club, but we have to be members! Bummer!), rentals if not included at reception venue, day of coordinator, and lastly, music!  I already have a photographer and videographer in mind...


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Nicole,


I was raised in New Port Richey.  My sister got married on Honeymoon Island.  She used mainly friends and family as vendors, though.  If you're looking for a ceremony location, though, Honeymoon Island was perfect!  You can rent out the place so that there are no weirdos watching your wedding from the next blanket over!  Her ceremony was at sunset: It was amazing!


Also, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out Publix for your wedding cake.  They do a super job and are much more reasonable than most bakeries.  They have delicious cake, too!  :)  (my cake was a publix cake.)

BellaWed - I sent you a private message with my email address.  Or you can send me the vendors through private message on here, whichever you prefer! Thanks so much!


Tgdtobe - We've been to Honeymoon Island/Caledesi Beach and it is very nice.  The only thing with that is we would have to take a ferry out and I'm not sure how costly that would be to pay for all of our guests... but it is a possibility.  Also, I've heard nothing but great things about Publix wedding cake! I will have to look into it as a possibility! Thanks.


Does anyone know anything about not being a member of a private yacht club and getting sponsored?  I'm not sure how that works.  We really would love to have our reception at the Carlouel Yacht Club in Clearwater but we're not members.
