Indian Rocks Beach Weddings


Indian Rocks Beach just 20 minutes south of Clearwater Beach, is a quaint but stunning destination spot.

Opposed to the busier cities in the area, such as Clearwater or St. Petersburg Beach, Indian Rocks Beach has that small beachtown vibe many are searching for!

This Gulf Beach wedding venue is a popular choice because you don’t need a permit to have your marriage ceremony (if under a certain guest limit). Eliminating what could be an expensive permit fee is an easy way to keep costs down.

Our weddings at Indian Rocks Beach are a cheaper wedding choice that gives you all the benefits you are looking for at a top destination wedding venue: white sand, vibrant Florida sunsets and unforgettable wedding photographs.

Indian Rocks Main Beach

Indian Rocks Beach Weddings at the main beach include a pay station for you and your guests to park as well as a nice boardwalk for you to walk down the aisle. While this Gulf beach can get busy during the day, it tends to clear out towards the evening hours: perfect for a sunset beach wedding! If you are having a large wedding, you may want to look into having transportation planned for everyone to eliminate the stress of parking. If you are having a reception at a venue within walking distance, you may be able to coordinate additional parking with them. This is a beautiful option for your beach wedding ceremony on the Gulf coast of Florida.

A Private Beach Venue for your Wedding

Beach House Wedding Venue: 3 Palms Retreat

If you are looking for the most inclusive option, the 3 Palms Retreat is an ideal location. This rental property has beautiful views of the ocean that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come. We absolutely love the sunset views and privacy that this beachfront house provides. What makes this house even more extraordinary is the separation of the main house and the duplex: it provides separate areas to get ready before the wedding. Plus, additional privacy for the bride and groom on the evening of their wedding. With the option to comfortably sleep 16, you and your guests can enjoy some quality time together during the visit for your Gulf beach wedding ceremony. We recommend this area for smaller beach weddings of 25 or less. All of our Indian Rocks Beach Wedding packages are great for this area.
