South Beach is filled with stunning seaside resorts, but there's a bevy of boutique hotels lining the shore that are just as charming. These five spots are sure to impress guests with wedding day options, from the rooftop to the seashore.

At Surfcomber, water plays a constant theme when it comes to weddings, from beachfront nuptials to poolside receptions. The hotel has its own team of planners to manage all the details with plenty of picture-perfect back-up for parties from 25 to 100 — rain or shine. Read real brides's reviews here!

The new all-suite wing on South Beach just across from the Gale shows off views over the Frank Gehry-designed New World Symphony from its rooftop terrace — the perfect spot to host post-wedding brunch or cocktails. Suites offer plenty of places for bridal parties to prep before the couple says "I do" during a sunset ceremony in the sand. Even better, out-of-town guests can snag an affordable stay at the nearby Gale.

Set up a ceremony under the stars at one of Ian Schrager's newest spots on Miami Beach's skyline. The fourth floor La Vista Terrace looks over the Atlantic and can double as a reception venue with specially crafted menus by celebrated Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten — great for brides who'd rather skip the sand but still have the ambiance of the ocean.

Just because your wedding is at a boutique hotel doesn't mean you need to narrow down your guestlist. The 1950s-style Shelborne can set up an aisle in the sand hosting ceremonies for up 1,500. After your vows, take the party up to the Marine Deck for picturesque views of the Atlantic and dishes whipped up by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto — who you can fly in just for the occasion.

Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach
Art Deco chic Metropolitan by COMO is set on a more secluded stretch of Miami Beach, so your wedding will be close enough to South Beach's action minus the noise. After tying the knot, sit down for an elegant poolside affair with the sounds of the waves in the distance or take the party indoors for a sit-down dinner in the retro-inspired restaurant.
