Every outdoor wedding event, at some point in time, is at the risk of being impacted by inclement weather. Because of the nature of our business, being primarily a beach destination venue, we understand the importance of being prepared for the unexpected. Hand in hand with preparation, our chief concern rests with the safety of our clients, their guests and our Southernmost Weddings staff and equipment.
After years of anticipating and responding to a variety of weather related issues, we have put an inclement weather company policy in place that, across the board, provides a reasonable resolution for all parties concerned. We rely on the most up to date national weather forecasting data, as well as reports from several surrounding communication facilities right here in the Keys. We always err on the side of safety, by never trying to out guess an approaching storm. In the Keys, there are also pop up storms that are not detected by radar.
We strongly suggest you purchase “wedding insurance” to cover any expenses relating to the postponement of your wedding.
If your wedding will be affected by an imminent weather event, please note that the following policies will be implemented at once:
Since the provisions of this policy are limited, please consider the following suggestions as a more proactive approach to making your wedding day less stressful:
Because you are only here “in port” for a few hours, we do make alternative plans for your wedding. You WILL leave Key West married! However….in regard to any and all beach decorations and set ups, we are not allowed to do set ups at alternate locations. You will have to forfeit those items if it rains and we must move to an alternative location as well. There will be no refunds for decor in this scenario. In addition, our vendors will not work in the rain or get their equipment wet.
