Maybe the correct question is…why not? You can come to Florida any time of year, Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter, and have a beautiful beach wedding because the weather is lovely almost all year round. Sink your toes in sand, watch the ocean waves and sunrise/set, and leave your winter coat, gloves, boots, and ear muffs behind. Florida’s mild winter temps will have lucky in love couples ditching the snowsuits for swimsuits any time of year. The west coast beaches can offer you everything you want to tie the knot.
The stunning, smiling couple in the photo above said “I do” right here in sunny Lido Key, Florida. And yes, it was winter and it was a gorgeous day all around. Beautiful couple, brilliant sunset, and 75 degree weather. It was the ideal beach for a destination wedding. They chose the “Nautical Knot” complete wedding package in the colors of their choice.
Our preferred Lido Beach wedding venue has a sandy walkway from the parking lot. This is also a shorter beach than the public access of Siesta Key, so your wedding ceremony will be closer to the turquoise Gulf water. This is not always possible with every location, but with Lido Key your professional wedding photographs will include sand, sun and sea. Let’s not forget the stunning orange and pink sunsets that set this location apart from many others. This makes it one of the top destination wedding locations for our brides to say, “I do”.
There is a Holiday Inn, which is just a short walk away across the street from the beach. Need a wedding reception venue? Nearby is Tommy Bahama Restaurant at which you can rent a banquet room that can seat approximately 35. More upscale, the Columbia Restaurant located in St. Armands Circle, offers private dining available for groups between 24-40 people. For family and friends, this can be a great option.
Your wedding does not have to be large for any of our beach wedding packages. Lido Key is perfect for any size wedding party: intimate elopement, smaller beach wedding, or a wedding with 100 guests. Maybe you’re on the fence if a destination winter wedding is for you. But I think this next comparison will help you with your decision. Would you rather be shoveling snow or walking down a white sandy aisle one your wedding day? If you really miss the shoveling we can find you a beach pail and shovel. Then you and your beloved can shovel sandcastles until your heart’s content
