    Checked all the boxes

    We wanted a beach wedding with a great indoor reception. Lido is exactly that! I’m so excited to have a sunset wedding on the beach! Then cocktail hour is outdoor but covered so our guest will still enjoy the sunset. Then we go inside to an amazing ballroom! The price is definitely affordable as well! Karen is the best!

    Beautiful Venue

    Lido Beach Resort was the whole package! The beaches were beautiful, with gorgeous sunsets. Even though we were set to have a sunset wedding, it was drizzling the day of, but we were able to proceed with the ceremony on the beach! (They had an alternative for if the weather got really bad, and told us that it is up to us and that if it needs to be changed last minute they were on it). The beach was blocked off for our guests to sit and other hotel guests to stay back. The beach was cleaned and looked beautiful. We worked with Scott and Kara. Both wonderful planners! Responses were fast and provided all information we needed. It also included a cake, made by Cakes by Ron, which was coordinated and set up just perfectly at the venue. It also included a personal behind the scenes coordinator Swanky Soiree. They made sure everything was set up and that everything ran so smooth. It was a stress free wedding for us. We were able to come and taste test the food before the ceremony. The food catered was DELICIOUS. We also were able to pick the color schemes for the reception, which was also held at the hotel. Everything was perfect. We even stayed at the hotel, and received phenomenal service.
