How To Choose Your Miami Wedding Venue

When looking for the perfect Miami wedding venues, you want to ensure your guests can enjoy themselves. And that means making sure the space is well-designed, the food is delicious, and the customer service is impeccable. Choosing the right Miami wedding venue is essential. You want to make sure that your guests have a fantastic experience and that you get the wedding reception space right for you.

The Rusty Pelican has been featured on Eater Miami as a top 10 standout Miami restaurant, so you can be sure that you will be getting top-tier experiences.

Determine Your Wedding Reception Size: Large or Small?

The first step is determining what size wedding reception you need—the more people who can fit onto a dance floor, the better. Remember, too, that having a smaller space will require more people to be seated on chairs rather than dancing in the middle of it—so this is something to consider as well.

You can choose from our five different space options:

  • Grand Ballroom can hold 400 people, including a dance floor; without, it can hold 550.

  • Biscayne can hold 165 people, including a dance floor; without, it can hold 220.

  • Pelican can hold 80 people, including a dance floor, without 100.

  • Coral Room can hold 40 people, including a dance floor; without, it can hold 50.

  • Vista Terrace can have 120 people, including a dance floor; without, it can hold 200.

Whether or not there are any other guests at your wedding reception, having an ample space will give everyone plenty of room to move about freely and get up close and personal with their friends and family members during dinner time. If everyone can fit into one ample space, there won't be any awkwardness from having them spread out over multiple tables at dinner time.
