About Us

Affordable Banquet is a family owned business located in the heart of St Pete Beach. Founded in 2007 under Gulf Beach Weddings – we have performed, presided over, and conducted over 4,500 weddings in the Tampa Bay Area. Pass-a-Grille (Southern point of St Pete Beach) is our personal favorite location for beach weddings: Home to the Beautiful Sunset, Proximity to Hotels & Amenities, Crisp White Sand, Sea Oats & Boardwalks for great pictures make Affordable Banquet the ideal private yet affordable option for local and traveling brides.
As the company evolved we heard from more and more brides that they would like to hire us to handle both the Wedding & Reception through the same person. Thus, Affordable Banquet was born with the purchase of a Free-Standing 2,200 SF Retail space that has now been converted to a Reception Hall for private events (2014). We have outfitted this property with all the top of the line materials at a price that is affordable to almost 95% of brides today. You are also able to hire all your own vendors or we can recommend vendors that we have worked with for years – you are in Great hands on your wedding day!
