Sanibel Island as a Destination Wedding Location

Brides and grooms to be might want to consider Sanibel as a destination wedding locale. All the elements are there to make the wedding memorable for the intended couple and delightful for all who attend.

For six months or more out of the year, the temperatures are sunny with nice breezes and no humidity.

The Gulf is a beautiful back drop for a marriage ceremony.

And all the resources a couple will need from reception venues to florists and photographers are easily found right on the Island.

The bridal party and invited guests will have a wide variety of things to do together or independently as well as diversity of choices in lodging for the wedding, and hopefully to add some time before or after as their own vacation.

For engaged couples considering wedding locale options, Sanibel should be on the forefront for its beauty, romance, charm and even for the convenience of transportation for wedding guests.

Fort Myers is the closest airport, only 40 minutes from the island and a hub for planes coming from all over the country as well as much of Europe. Miami airport is only a 3 hour drive and services national and international flights. Sarasota airport is less than 2 hours away and Tampa is again, a 3 hour drive.

In addition to these 4 airports that can be the transportation connection for guests traveling by plane and from hundreds of locations, the highways into Florida are very good and easy to travel for guests who may be closer and wanting to use their own cars to get to the island.

Although Sanibel is the site for many weddings a year, it is still surprisingly relatively unknown as a destination wedding.

Considering the reasonable cost, convenience and appeal of a wedding on a small and well managed resort island, it would appear the ideal spot to tie the knot!
