1. Alfred I DuPont Building

169 E. Flagler St
Miami, FL 33131

On the second floor of the Alfred I. DuPont Building, downtown Miami's only art deco skyscraper, is a former banking hall with high beamed ceilings, rich art deco details, and even the old bank vault, perfect for a couple of urbanite dudes to tie the knot.

2. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

3251 S. Miami Ave
Miami, FL 33129

Because where better to put a ring on your man than a palatial italian estate built by a lifelong bachelor and his flamboyantly gay decorator?

3. Lords South Beach

1120 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(877) 448-4754

The 'appropriately oriented' gay hotel (It is not, we repeat, it is not a gay guest house. Put your clothes back on) Lords is a smashing place for a smaller gay wedding with its polar-bear-holding-a-beach-ball statue and other gay accoutrements. Or maybe get hitched somewhere else and rent out the penthouse for the reception.

4. The Fontainebleau

4441 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33140
(877) 326-7412

It's big, it's flashy, it's the most famous hotel in Miami Beach, and let's hope your man is (sugar) Daddy Warbucks, because it isn't cheap.

5. The Standard Spa, Miami Beach

40 Island Ave.
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 673-1717
Visit Website

The Standard Hotel, with its oh-so-hipster-fabulous vibe, gardens, and luxurious spa is a great place for a gay wedding, gay reception, or gay honeymoon. It's also a great place to show off your new beau. The hotel room bathtubs are on semi-private terraces. Peeky-boo!

6. Casa Casuarina, The Versace Mansion

Copy Link
1116 Ocean Drive
Miami, FL 33139

Because if Gianni Versace coulda, you know he woulda.

7. Elizabeth Taylor's Miami Lover's House

Copy Link
2555 Lake Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33140

This lovebird's nest in the Sunset Islands is no longer on the market, and thus quite unavailable for gay marriages unless the new owners are sweetie pies and say yes, but you just know you wanna fall in love where Liz did.

8. Esther Williams Penthouse At The Raleigh Hotel

Copy Link
1775 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 534-6300
Visit Website

The penthouse at the Raleigh, named after the synchronized swimming sensation who made the hotel's pool famous, has a grand, ocean view living room with terraces that would make a beautiful wedding venue. Or get married by that curvaceous pool. In your speedo.

9. Mondrian South Beach

Copy Link
1100 West Ave.
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 514-1500
Visit Website

Go super contemporary, minimalist with a pop, at the Mondrian South Beach. This is the kind of place where both grooms wear all white. And the wedding is officiated by a giant floating head.

10. Anywhere In Wilton Manors

Copy Link
2256 Wilton Drive
Wilton Manors, FL 33305

Because it's gayville U.S.A. Your options include The Manor, and the ever popular lunch spot Rosie's on the Drive.
