Wedding Reception Venues

Wedding Reception Venues

Wedding reception venues in our area include many affordable options.  Wedding celebrations usually include a post ceremony gathering of family and friends.  We suggest couples research a variety of wedding receptions venues; then plan their day backwards.  We encourage them to choose one of the many wedding reception venues first; then determine their wedding location and lodging.

For larger groups, wedding reception venues in our area include yachts, a tropical party boat, banquet halls, hotels, decks, parks, a beach pavilion and a few restaurants.  A restaurant that can accommodate large group in Clearwater is the Island Way Grille.  In Madeira Beach, there is Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.   Large groups may also consider Gators Café and Saloon on the waterfront in Treasure Island. Large groups often choose lunch cruise charters.  These are a fantastic local reception deal.

Smaller groups from 2 to 50 often celebrate aboard one of the yacht or party boat dinner cruises we book.  These unique wedding reception venues sail from Clearwater or St Pete Beach.  

From Dinner Cruises to picnic shelters, our area offers an affordable variety of wedding reception venues.  Hotels offer banquet halls and beachside decks.  They include brunches, lunches, buffets and plated dinners served by their staff.  Parks have shelters you can rent and bring your own food.  Yacht and Party boat dinner cruises can be chartered or you couples receive a group discount.  Banquet Halls, such as the Verizon Event Center or the Magic Ballroom in Largo offer great prices, where you may work with a caterer or bring your own meal. Churches and municipalities offer banquet space that couples can rent for a steal.

Some restaurants are wedding reception venues too. To save money, small groups may reserve a brunch reception at a restaurant called Watercolour Grill House in Clearwater.  Larger groups may work with a catering sales manager at a restaurant, hotel or banquet hall to arrange an affordable brunch reception for their group. Restaurant receptions are also popular wedding reception venues for small groups.  Treasure Island favorites include The Sunset Café, Feola’s on the Gulf and the Pearl.  Two favorites in Clearwater are the Palm Pavillion & The Island Way Grill. Restaurants where exclusive seating & private dining rooms are offered for small groups include: PJ’s Oyster Bar, St. Pete Beach; Gator’s Cafe & Saloon, Treasure Island; Beach Rusty’s Bistro, Clearwater Beach; Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Madeira Beach; The Pearl, Treasure Island Beach Condo Resort, Treasure Island; Beach Crabby Bill’s Restaurant, St. Pete Beach.

There are 3 beach wedding reception venues in area the that offer reception options on the sand.  We would book one of our All Inclusive Wedding Ceremony Packages in conjunction with one of these reception venues booked by our couples.
