We got married at the Opal Sands on 9/2/17 we had a fantastic experience from the minute we met with Diana. Since this was a 2nd marriage we didn't want all of the traditional things. Diana was able to accommodate the exact feel of what we wanted for our ceremony and reception. Unfortunately, it rained the day of the wedding so we had to move the ceremony inside. Actually, I believe that worked out for the best. We wanted a "party" feel versus a reception and a "party" it was. We could not have asked for a better experience with the venue and staff. I would highly recommend this location and I already have! (smile) Thank you! Lisa & Chris Choate

We are so happy that our wedding planner encouraged us to visit and consider the Opal Sands Resort as a potential wedding venue. It does not disappoint and the other venues we viewed simply could not compare. The majority of them were dated and tired looking so it was very refreshing to view such a beautiful, stylish and contemporary resort. After our first meeting with Diana Cardenas we booked Opal Sands and have not regretted our decision for a second.
Our wedding day at Opal Sands truly surpassed our expectations. The ceremony and cocktail hour took place on the pool lawn with its stunning water outlook and we then moved inside for the dinner and dancing. It was particularly wonderful that the banqueting room had a full length balcony and water view so our guests were still able to enjoy the sunset even during the dinner service and get some fresh air without straying too far from the party. The service and attention to detail throughout the event was exceptional and our guests are still raving about the quality of the food. We have frequently been told that it was by far the best meal our guests have ever had at a wedding and some guests even stated that it was the best meal they had during their two week stay in Florida; and they are five star all the way!
As a destination wedding, our priority was making sure our guests had the best experience possible so we are thrilled that Opal Sands made this a reality. There is truly nothing better than hearing your guests say how much they enjoyed the day and how impressed they were by the venue. A lot of the credit for the success of our day goes to Diana and her team. She was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the planning process and was always warm, professional and approachable. Diana was quick to respond to any queries and I thought she was very flexible and went above and beyond to make sure our vision came to life.
We cannot wait to go back and visit this gorgeous place again soon!
