Weddings can be expensive, and one element that usually takes up a lot of the budget is the venue. It’s also one of the first decisions that needs to be made, which can affect the décor, menu, and entertainment options available to you. To save you some time, we’ve hunted out five of our favourite wedding venues in Tampa Bay area:
