Top 5 Miami Wedding Trends That Are Always 'In'

We’ve got big news for couples looking to get hitched in Miami - There’s no need to see what’s “happening” in the industry in order to plan your nuptials. Read on for five timeless Miami wedding trends that planners, event experts, and caterers can all agree on.

1. Getting Married On or Near the Beach

That’s why you’re getting married in Miami after all, isn’t it? Beach weddings are appealing not just for their setting, but in which they give you the option of keeping your wedding as simple, or as extravagant, as you’d like. We’d argue that the benefits of having your wedding near the beach is a better option than on the sand. Saying ‘I do’ at a beachside venue like The Sagamore Hotel not only provides an incredible backdrop, but it makes the beach accessible to everyone involved and provides shade, accommodations, and facilities for those who need it.

The Sagamore Hotel offers 18,000 sq. ft. of stunning beach wedding ceremony and reception space. Our unique spaces are ideal for small, intimate ceremonies and grand receptions of 450 guests or less. Not to mention, our newly enhanced and revitalized Penthouse Suite is the perfect bridal suite to lounge, gather, and prep before tying the knot, and we offer some of the largest standard rooms in South Beach that will keep your guests feeling well-cared for in comfort and style.

2. Bright Color Palettes

If you’re not one to shy away from color, your wedding concept absolutely belongs in Miami. We’re a colorful place. Also worth mentioning, our tropical destination is already vibrant, so maybe you’d prefer to keep it neutral and let the outside colors (lush foliage, flowers, ocean hues, and colorful skies) speak for itself. Textiles, floral arrangements, and décor is one thing, but when picking a wearable color scheme, be cautious of too much black and other dark colors. It’s too hot and the sun is too bright.

3. Fun Miami Wedding Themes

Anything goes in Miami. We have an entire guide devoted to the best Miami wedding themes that fit right in here in Magic City, including concepts like ‘Old Florida,’ ‘Havana Nights,’ and ‘Art Deco.’ Get inspired by your venue. At The Sagamore Hotel, we think outside the box. We’re where the visual arts meet music, dance, and fashion. Our beachfront Art Deco hotel will help showcase your style in an environment where you can feel Miami vibes in every corner.

4. Tropical Wedding Cocktails and Mocktails

Cocktails can set the tone of your wedding just as much as anything else, so make sure your guests are sipping on something slushy, fruity, or maybe both, to match the tropical vibes. Drinks like an aperol spritz, margarita, mojito, paloma, bourbon iced tea or lemonade, and rum punch are always a good idea. The more creative, the better. Personalized signature drinks always add a nice touch. And let’s face it, ice sculptures will never work for an outdoor Miami wedding, so perhaps a margarita tower could provide the fun photo moment you’re missing.

5. Non-Traditional Entertainment

If you want to break from traditional entertainment, Miami is your place. Think live art installations, a magic show, acrobatic or drag or fire performers, sketch artists, face painters, a steel drum band, and outdoor yard games. Design a scavenger hunt or a couple’s quiz, or head out on a bus tour. Miami is ripe for experiential entertainment.
