    Best Venue for a Wedding

    The Grand Plaza Resort was the only venue we wanted for our wedding because of the beach ceremony, the views, and the ease of everything in one location while having your own wedding coordinator. It was very easy to schedule a tour to view the different ballrooms, discuss pricing, dates, decor, and other things. During the time we booked and our wedding day, they were always quick to respond to any questions I had that had come up. Once our day got closer, they were in contact with us to finalize everything and to make sure our day went off without a problem. The day of the wedding, we were able to stop in our ballroom early in the morning to decorate with the items we wanted to use and get the room ready. They had everything already setup that we got through them, we had some extra touches we wanted to add. The ceremony and reception went perfect and couldn't have asked for anything more. I would highly recommend the Grand Plaza Resort for your wedding!

    We have worked with the Grand Plaza Resort for over 17 years. The banquet rooms are Awesome! Be sure to check out the Presidential Ballroom - best on the beach. All employees are hospitable - they know how to treat their guests. The sales staff is attentive to brides' and grooms' needs and make their wedding experience perfect! You will be happy you chose the Grand Plaza for your wedding and reception location.

    The Grandplaza has the most spectacular view on St. Pete Beach from the Presidential Balllroom. I recommend this room for weddings less than 80 guests, however if you are having a larger wedding, the imperial ballroom is elegant and will wow your guests. The food is unmatched and the catering staff is friendly, professional, and attentive. I give them five stars and highly recommend the Grandplaza to my future clients.
