Picture your own beachside villa in the style of a stately mansion, and you have The Betsy. With 61 rooms, the luxe hotel is a top pick for a complete hotel buyout with a staff of 200 taking care of all your guests' needs — adding to the beach house feel. The hotel also serves as an all-in-one for both wedding and weekend planning, with the hotel staff organizing the ultimate Miami itinerary that can include everything from concerts to deep sea fishing trips.

When it comes to location in South Beach, Hollywood transplant The Redbury is about as good as it gets — and even offers discounted rates for bridal parties. The 69-room boutique beauty may not be beachfront, but guests can run across the street to the iconic Raleigh Hotel and get priority beach access or sit poolside on the roof and take in the action happing on Collins Avenue below. Brides going with a vintage wedding theme will also love The Redbury's retro rooms which are outfitted with record players and a vinyl collection, so out-of-towners can keep the party going long after the wedding is over.

A throwback to Miami Beach during the glamorous 1930s, the Tides South Beach only has 45 rooms, but they're the largest you'll find on South Beach — and all offer ocean views. Brides can take over one of the three penthouses, which can double as a bridal suite or setting for an intimate cocktail gathering. With views over the entire Art Deco District (at the spot Marilyn Monroe once called her favorite hotel on Miami Beach!), this hotel is iconic to say the least.

Inspired to feel like an upscale beach house, the recently opened Nautilus Hotel on South Beach has plenty of cozy areas for your guests to gather in — from the sunken lobby bar to the saltwater pool and lawn with Bolivian hammocks hanging from palm trees. And if you want to host a dinner prepared by a celeb chef, you're in luck — Alex Guarnaschelli is behind the cuisine at new restaurant, Driftwood.
