With Nobu Hotel debuting this fall, couples tying the knot will be saying "I do" in one of the newest venues on the beach, tucked inside the historic hotel dubbed the "Grand Dame of Miami Beach" in the '50s and '60s thanks its role as a playground for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Katherine Hepburn and Ernest Hemingway. One of the 15th floor panoramic penthouse suites will make for a serene bridal suite overlooking the water, and when it comes to the rest of the locales for your wedding day, you've got over 70,000 square feet of space to choose from, whether you'd like a moonlit dinner in the Ocean Garden or a toes-in-the-sand beach ceremony.

A team of onsite wedding planning pros and multiple ballrooms to choose from are just the start when it comes to throwing a wedding at the downtown high-rise, both indoors or al fresco on the terrace. And as for wedding photo ops, you'll be swept away with the views from 19th floor pool deck, which can easily transform into a cocktail reception giving out-of-town guests a picture-perfect view of Miami.

Just near by, the EPIC has practically everything you could think of for a wedding weekend, from the perfect place to pamper the bride-to-be (or squeeze in a quick barre class) at exhale spa to the panoramic 16th floor restaurant Area 31, which could double as a spot for rehearsal dinners and receptions. There's even a deep water marina for brides (or grooms) who want to roll up Miami-style to the ceremony. Read real brides' reviews here!

The iconic Coconut Grove hotel is just the place for couples who want a wedding on the water away from South Beach — Biscayne Bay views included. Greet guests with a cocktail reception in Asian garden for a zen-like vibe surrounded by bamboo and orchids, or take advantage of the scenery and sunset throwing a soirée in the Palm Terrace atrium, which also makes for quite a unique ceremony setting thanks to its glass-encased ceiling.

The Tides South Beach
When it was first built in the 1930s, the "Diva of Ocean Drive" was the tallest building on the beach. While that's no longer the case, the boutique Art Deco hotel still exudes glamour and retro décor — à la Kelly Wearstler. A favorite for more intimate destination weddings, The Tides can host parties up to 60, starting with a poolside reception and then taking the ceremony up to the 10th floor rooftop terrace for 360-degree views.

A variety of venues for parties of all sizes — from 10 to 1,000 — is what makes this all-in-one hotel a winner — plus it's sitting smack dab in the middle of South Beach so guests can quickly stroll Lincoln Road in between festivities. Take your pick of water views, whether you'd like to exchange vows in the garden or on the sand, and then party poolside or in the oceanfront penthouse suite, surrounded by the Art Hotel's museum-quality collection.
