Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples

Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we’ve personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay’s most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren’t created by fake accounts.

  • We were specifically focused on venues that could hold our estimated guest count, were close to our church, and were aesthetically pleasing.

    We love the history and charm that Hotel Flor holds. We knew it was going to be newly renovated and adopted by Hilton by our wedding date, and this excited us. We found their ballroom very beautiful and elegant and thought it would be the perfect spot to host our reception. We cannot say enough positive things about their service. Even amidst their Hilton transition and some staffing changes, they were very attentive to our hopes and dreams for the day, very communicative and prompt with our questions, and extremely accommodating and flexible throughout. All of our vendors also spoke highly of how great Hotel Flor was to work with!
