When you think of Florida weddings, Miami beach wedding venues are probably the first locations that come to mind. And not surprisingly, there are quite a few Miami wedding venues on the water, whether you’re looking for a relaxed destination wedding or a more glammed-up style. When it comes to hosting a beach wedding in Miami, you’ll want to be sure to find a venue that has an indoor backup plan in case of inclement weather, too.

Check out some of our favorite Miami beach wedding venues to consider for your big day!

B Ocean Resort Fort Lauderdale
