What precautions should I take in case it rains on my wedding day?

You can rest easy. We’ve got you covered – literally! Since we only host one event at a time, we can offer you a last-minute plan B underneath our Lakeside Pavilion which is equally stunning. As a Vizcaya Villa bride, you can forget the stress of having to reserve and pay for a tent or make a weather decision weeks or days ahead of time. We’ll coordinate day-of to decide what will work best for you.

Can my flower girl throw faux petals down the aisle?


We're happy you chose this special little girl to be apart of your ceremony! We ask that you fill her basket with real petals, instead of faux petals as they end up in the lake with the slightest gust of wind and hinder our property from looking its best for your big day.    

planning to have a long veil?

Wedding dress shopping is one of the highlights of planning your wedding. If you're interested in having a veil as part of your wedding attire, keep in mind your walk across our 2 arched bridges is long and dramatic. As your groom, family & friends watch you make your way down the aisle the slightest snag of your veil could cause it to fall off. Be mindful of the layout of Vizcaya Villa when planning your wedding day attire to ensure a comfortable & unforgettable day. 

Can I have a ceremony rehearsal at Vizcaya Villa before the big day?

A one-hour ceremony rehearsal at Vizcaya Villa is included. 

Friday weddings rehearse Thursday at 3 - 4pm

Saturday weddings rehearse Friday at 1 - 2pm

I'm only seeing one package on your website, is this the only package you offer?

We have created the best possible package for our property giving you and your guests the best wedding experience.  While we offer our All-Inclusive package year round, from December through March we can create a similar All-Inclusive package for events, birthday parties, sweet 16's, etc.  For weddings during this time we can offer an indoor ceremony and accommodate weddings with under 100 guests.  Contact us for more information!   

How can I taste food and select my menu?

Vizcaya Villa hosts several tastings a year. Booked couples will receive two complementary seats. We are unable to accommodate private tastings so please clear your calendars in advance.   If you would like to attend a tasting prior to booking, want to add additional guests, or are interested in coming for a second tasting, please contact us for more details.
