Top tips for planning your beach nuptials:


  1. You can get a permit yourself by calling Sarasota Parks and Recreation at (941) 861-9930, or a

Laura Detwiler Events-Wedding Planner will offer that service for you.


2.  Decide which Beach Access is best for you? Consider if you’d like a remote part of the beach, a

section with amenities, or an area near shops and restaurants. Most wedding goers enjoy “Zone 1”

because of the newly remodeled area with a covered pavilion and restrooms. Another romantic option

are tented receptions at private beach resorts on Siesta.


3. Should you hire an event planner, make certain that she is familiar with the area. There’s a lot to

factor in, including selecting the right date, the weather, and other events that may be happening

at the beach that day.


4. Choose a wedding venue for the reception. After you’ve gotten married on the beach, you’ll want to find a suitable venue to entertain you, your newlywed and all your party guests. It’s important to find the right place that will cater to everything you need, do some research to find the right spot.


Whether you’re escaping the crowds, or bringing the families together, a picture perfect beach setting is a great way to kick off a lifetime of happiness together. Congratulations, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
