Garden wedding venues in Miami are a bit different than garden venues in other parts of the country. The Miami region is blessed with lush tropical flora (hello palm trees and orchids!), creating many unique (and stunning!) settings for your wedding day. As there are many garden wedding venues in Florida, you may want to expand your horizons and travel a bit outside of Miami to find some of these hidden gems. From European-inspired cottages to serene Zen gardens, the Miami region offers a variety of settings for a garden wedding.

Check out some of our favorite oh-so-romantic garden wedding venues in Miami.

Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale

A favorite among the garden wedding venues in Florida, the Bahia Mar hotel is conveniently located near the beaches in Fort Lauderdale. However, the Waterfront Gardens, where ceremonies are held, feels extremely private, serene, and full of natural beauty. There are also two ballrooms on premises, including the Grande View Ballroom with windows overlooking the ocean, and the Commodore Ballroom which can host up to 600 guests. Plus, (one of the benefits of getting married at a hotel!) your guests can stay on premises near all the activities and nightlife of Fort Lauderdale.
