Set Sail From Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is just minutes away from Port Everglades.  With the ships setting sail almost hourly, so many Caribbean and international cruising options are waiting for you.  It is the perfect opportunity to have your Fort Lauderdale Beach Wedding.  Then set sail on a magical Caribbean Honeymoon.  A beach wedding offers more flexibility than getting married on a cruise ship.  It also comes with a better value. The cruise ships’ prices are so much higher.  Photography is also a huge thing to consider.  An open natural beach setting is ideal for photos.  An inside area on a cruise is not ideal for a picturesque wedding.

Further down the beach, another one of our favorites is The Hotel Maren.  Located close to everything, this is one of the newest hotels along the beach and is absolutely gorgeous.  So, if you want a ceremony on the beach and a laid-back style reception, we highly recommend Hotel Maren.
