Romantic reveries aside, the first decision you need to make is where the momentous occasion will take place. Will it be beachfront with a soundtrack of gentle waves upon the shore, a sophisticated hall with stunning decor or a historic landmark where art and architecture stimulate the senses? The choice is up to you, and the possibilities are endless.
A Seaside Haven
Acqualina Resort & Spa, a five-star property set on 400 feet of glistening Sunny Isles Beach shoreline, offers two customizable wedding packages—the Elegance Collection and the Opulence Collection—to make planning the big day as smooth as possible. No matter which package you choose, the resort has a bevy of extraordinary settings for ceremonies and receptions.

Nothing Short of Amazing
Conveniently situated in the heart of Dania Beach, the Gallery of Amazing Things is not your typical banquet hall. This venue, once an aged museum, has been transformed into an art gallery, cultural center and, yes, a one-of-a-kind event space to turn your wedding-day dreams into reality. The gallery’s 40,000 square feet of flexible space, covering two levels, is ideal for anything from an intimate ceremony to a lavish spectacle for up to 800 guests. 954.654.7739; galleryamazing.com
In the early 1900s, The Breakers Palm Beach was the destination for the “who’s who” of industry tycoons. Today, the resort presents a variety of venues—from gilded and frescoed ballrooms to sprawling lawns and panoramic courtyards—to capture the elegance of its past. Whether it’s brunch for 50 guests or a dazzling fête for 500, the experience is complemented by the help of seasoned wedding specialists who have unsurpassed resources at their fingertips, including award-winning chefs, master sommeliers and the resort’s full-service design studio. 877.724.3188; thebreakers.com
