Boutique Hotels

If you want the flexibility and convenience of a hotel wedding, but are turned off by the institutionalized feel of multipurpose ballrooms, then the stylish decor and more intimate vibe of a boutique hotel may be a perfect alternative. The boutique hotel scene, which began in Miami’s South Beach, remains one of the hottest around. For a sexy and glamorous feel, consider the Hotel Victor, 1144 Ocean Dr., 305-428-1234; hotelvictorsouthbeach.com. Hold your ceremony on their second-floor terrace area, overlooking Ocean Drive and the beach, then dine on Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine in the glass-enclosed dining room with sensual colors and sumptuous drapery. Afterward, you can return to the terrace for alfresco dancing. Seated capacity: 90–100.
