I’m sure anyone currently looking to get married in the Florida Keys is reminded and wondering of the recent storm damage of Hurricane Irma. Places like Big Pine Key were severely damaged and still in need of help. Weddings as of now are being held mostly from Key Largo to Islamorada and also in Key West. Respecting the heavily hit areas is important the the local community but at the same time we are a tourist area with many small business owners that are back up and running. With the wedding industry being so popular in the Florida Keys, guests bring much needed business to the community. With fishing, water sports, restaurants and transportation all catering to our wedding guests and tourists we want to be able to show them the keys is still the same amazing place it always was.
Hotels in the Florida Keys that were located on the Ocean Side were hit the worst and remain closed until 2018. Luckily for Blue Water Weddings we were able to re-located allot of our weddings. In most cases there was no need to cancel any weddings in the Florida Keys at all. Luckily, there are many privately owned resorts in the keys that have reopened to tourists and are welcoming the overflow of business coming their way. Fantasy Fest which took place in Key West was also a positive reminder that the Florida Keys is open for business. Small resorts, private homes and hotels on the bayside (sunset side) are currently hosting weddings and have been since the keys was reopened. If you are looking for a place to get married in the Florida Keys below is a list of some wonderful spots to consider.
