The Packages & The Specials Versus What Do You Want?

December 20, 2013

All of us Wedding Planners post Packages on our Web Sites that offer a number of services grouped together. The Package price offers a discount compared to choosing each service at its individual price. Every Wedding Company offers packages that each hopes will entice you, the buyer. In discounting services in Packages, every company hopes that the […]

Accomodations and the Cost of Paradise

December 12, 2013

Just like all of you, I read the bride magazines and I watch all the wedding shows on TV. I must tell you, I laugh and laugh and laugh at the broadcasted cost of those weddings because, if you look at the website of ANY Key West wedding company, our prices are a total joke compared […]

A Month of Excellent Ceremonies

September 25, 2013

September 2013, has become, for me, a very special time, with very special memories. Why, you might ask? I’ll tell you………….. Let’s start with the fact that for us, every wedding or event is special, and every wedding or event deserves everything we can bring to it. And we do bring our best to every […]

The Marriage License

September 19, 2013

I’m not writing today to tell you how to get your Florida Marriage License. You can check that out on our website by clicking on this link: No, I’m writing because of something kind of crazy that I have seen happen more than a few times lately. I’m not going to tell any specific […]

Smather’s Beach

September 9, 2013

I’m sick and tired of people, who do not live here and who have not visited here, trashing Smather’s Beach. There are a lot of good reasons why Smather’s Beach is the most popular place for weddings in Key West. And I’m going to tell you all about them, along with pointing out some of […]

There’s Always Something……

August 29, 2013

We’re still shaking our heads over an incident at an otherwise beautiful wedding last week. Just when you think that everything is arranged and unfolding perfectly, there’s always “something” to challenge you. In this case, it was a morning cruise ship wedding and we had arranged for a large trolley to bring the wedding party […]

Being a Guest, For a Change!

July 29, 2013

I’m heading to my nephew’s wedding this weekend, and it is a destination wedding, although not to Key West. I think that I’m having the same feelings though, as any guest of a destination wedding to Key West. And I am understanding a lot of things that you, the bride and groom, can do to […]

Rocks and Hard Places

June 26, 2013

So here I am, owner of a Destination Wedding company in Paradise. OK, Key West, Florida, at least as close as you can get to Paradise. My nephew (actually I’m sure it’s his fiancée who I am under NO obligation to like) has chosen to have his (HER) destination wedding in Las Vegas, the last […]

Setting Things Straight

May 7, 2013

Key West Wedding Services is a company that is owned by the people who provide the wedding services, unlike many companies in Key West, We can keep our prices relatively low because of that. When you book a basic package and then ask us to add on ANYTHING, there has to be a coordination and […]
