Wedding Spaces The W South Beach Hotel Offers:

Although this hotel sits right on the beach, it has a variety of spaces both indoor and outdoor to cater to any wedding style! You don’t have to get sandy feet if you don’t want to.

Outdoor Spaces:

Beachfront: Perfect for couples that want to get married on the sand! Keep in mind that beaches in Florida are public, and curious bystanders may be around.

Couples that want to have a beachfront ceremony need to obtain a permit. The price of the permit varies depending on the number of guests and production details.
