Wedding Ceremonies on the Beach
The El Caribe Resort hosts weddings on the beach year round, which can be held directly on the beach sand or on the grassy courtyard area overlooking the ocean and beach, directly outside the Caribbean Ballroom. Outdoor weddings have become more popular as couples search for alternatives to traditional chapel weddings.
"I wanted to do a Florida-style wedding on the beach because my fiance and I are both beach people and love the ocean. It allowed us to incorporate our own style into the ceremony, and all the guests loved it. Plus the weather was beautiful! It wasn't hard getting our friends to travel to Daytona Beach to stay in an oceanfront hotel."
Wedding Receptions in the Caribbean Ballroom
Host your wedding reception in the Caribbean Ballroom, a 3,000 SF room which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and also has a large oceanfront patio area. The ballroom can accommodate up to 200 people in a banquet style setup and is an open, two-story, acoustically designed room with 12' high arched windows displaying a breathtaking view of the ocean. This banquet room is located on the first floor and has easy access for guests, with a large pre-assembly area that is perfect for your wedding gift table and guest greeting area.
'Flip Flops to Formal Catering' is the exclusive caterer for all events scheduled. Chef Jim Lee and his staff are committed to quality, affordable catering and banquet services with creative presentation backed by extraordinary service.
