From grand receptions of 500 to intimate exchanges of vows and horse-drawn carriages, Hotel Galvez & Spa® makes every bride’s day perfect. Situated along the Gulf Coast beaches, Hotel Galvez offers couples a rich, elegant setting for a destination wedding.

Hotel Galvez has been creating enchanting weddings for more than a 100 years and features a history including presidents, legendary entertainers, and even an occasional ghost. The hotel now offers two outdoor venues for wedding ceremonies – the Oleander Garden and Centennial Green. For small ceremonies up to 150, couples opt for the Oleander Garden. Showcasing the Oleander City’s most abundant bloom and a flowing water wall, the garden offers a gorgeous wedding space in an intimate setting. Centennial Green, which is located just south of the Music Hall, features a classic pergola for ceremonies and is bordered by four charming fountains. Brides can make their entrance from the steps of the Music Hall down the length of the green to the pergola which offers a view of the Gulf in the background. This new space can accommodate ceremonies of up to 400.

The classic elegance of the Music Hall offers 4,550 sq. ft. of space with high ceilings, grand arches, ornate glass and gold chandeliers, and accommodates parties of 500 for standing receptions or 300 for a seated event. The Terrace Ballroom is well suited for small stylish receptions. The Veranda offers another way to enjoy weddings and receptions, overlooking the tropical pool, lush landscaping and Gulf of Mexico.  The Veranda combined with the Terrace Ballroom can host receptions of up to 350 people.

Despite the hotels’ historic grandeur, guests still enjoy today’s modern amenities. From room service and cocktails to a tropical pool with a swim-up bar and trolley rides around town, couples delight in everything new before and after “I do.”

The Hotel Galvez’ catering and staff is made available for the reception, creating buffet or reception-style meals. Wedding guests can also enjoy the hotel’s popular Sunday Brunch to send off the newlyweds, available from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. every Sunday.
