One really popular group wedding travel destination that we like to suggest is Florida's sunny Fort Lauderdale, a city sitting on the southeast coast known for its beaches, canals, outdoor eateries, bars, boutiques, and luxury hotels. With a 77 degree year-round average temperature and over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, not to mention 23 total miles of sparkling sand beaches, Fort Lauderdale truly is the 'perfect setting for a barefoot beach wedding'. What can we say, this destination offers your group a Lauderlove!!

With the combination of our help getting you and your large, or small, group of family and friends who will be in attendance for your big day to Fort Lauderdale and finding you a place to stay and Fort Lauderdale's own 'Ambassador's of Bliss' helping book venues, find formal wear, and cater food, we guarantee you will have the wedding of your dreams!

Check out all the unique places you can say I do while here!
