Destination Wedding Hotspot: Florida Keys

4:45 PM, by Unknown

Why get hitched here: This 110-mile chain of islands offers a laid-back tropical island setting with all the feel of the Caribbean at a domestic price and a more convenient location for guests.

The Keys have a distinct old-Florida vibe, meaning wildlife and nature abound (you may even spot an indigenous deer swimming from key to key as you exchange vows), and since the islands are surrounded by the clear-blue waters of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, there's no shortage of white-sand beaches.

Try Key Largo for an underwater ceremony, a low-key beach bungalow or dolphin-assisted "I dos" on Islamorada, or one of the historic homes and gardens on Key West, one of the southernmost points in the US. Or go for a luxe offshore private island resort accessible only by boat; you can also just get married on the vessel (choose from sailboats, tall ships, glass-bottom boats and yachts).

Best time to wed: High season is December to April, so you may want to try summer, when things are more affordable (and less crowded) -- but it will be hot. Though hurricane season runs from June to November, you should be okay if you avoid the more risky fall months.
