Everything You Need to Know About Having a Key West Wedding

Key West is always a unique, subtropical paradise, but it’s an even better place to get hitched. The island boasts beautiful venues and all the options for catering, cakes, and decor that you could ever want, no matter your style or personality. So whether you’re a Key West local or in town just to throw the ultimate destination wedding, we’re here to work out the details with you. Here comes the guide…to everything you need to know about having the perfect Key West wedding.

The Basics

From marriage requirements to picking a date, we’re breaking down the basics to help you plan the Key West wedding of your dreams. Once you’ve established a budget and have a general idea in mind of the wedding you want, you’ll need to obtain a marriage license from the Key West Courthouse on Whitehead Street. Visit the Monroe County website to apply for a license, find an ordained officiant, and legally change your name.

To pick a date, you’ll want to be mindful of Key West’s weather. Typically, February (with temps hovering around 75 degrees during the day and low 60s at night) through May (with warm weather and warmer ocean temps) are the most desirable months. You’ll find a vibrant atmosphere in Key West no matter what time of year, but summer and fall months are susceptible to sweltering temps and rainfall.




The lush and spacious Sunset Green Event Lawn with vibrant landscaping and versatile amenities is an exquisite venue to say "I do." Located in between 24 North Hotel and our sister hotel The Gates Key West, the green space has a whimsical pergola to exchange vows under, plus our team can add anything from tents, dance floors, and even portable air-conditioning units to your ceremony.
