Planning your wedding on the beach is a very important task to complete and we start this step by step beach wedding guide by assuming you have already picked out someone to marry and spend the rest of your life with. The cool white powder sugar sand of Siesta Key Beach and the tropical blue water of the Gulf of Mexico will highlight this very special day. Planning your wedding day is the second hardest task in this process of getting married. The hardest and most challenging task comes later. So let's get started and see what steps you need to complete.
Your almost to the end of your pre-planning. One of the wedding planners made mention to me that it is sometime to an effort to get parking space at the beach. Beach parking is free, but on some weekends the Siesta Key Beach parking lot does fill up. There is parking on the street in front of the area where you have reserved space for your wedding ceremony, but this too can fill up quickly on a weekend. You will need a location to spend your honeymoon evening and perhaps others in your wedding party require accommodations and would like to turn your wedding into a beach vacation for themselves. Nann and I highly recommend that you consider reserving our one-bedroom penthouse condo for your honeymoon. With the open balcony you will be able to enjoy overlooking the site where your wedding took place while you enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or a beverage of your choice and savor the memories while you plan your futures. Additionally there are other one and two bedroom condos in our building at Sunset Royale that friends and relatives may wish to reserve for their own beach vacation while visiting Siesta Key.
For those that like the idea of spending their honeymoon on Siesta Key with the incredible views that our special condo at the beach provides, but still looking for a different venue for the wedding, we have a couple of thought for you. How about holding your wedding ceremony in a world class Saraota botanical garden known for their orchids and and beautiful location on Sarasota Bay. Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is very close to your honeymoon condo on Siesta Key and they provide everything you will need for a beautiful an memorable wedding and reception. They can also provide catering or you can arrange your own. Another intriguing wedding location and about one hour from the beach is the Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallion Ranch where you can arrange to hold your wedding at the Royal Lipizzan Stallion Ranch. Royal Lipizzan Stallion wedding and Sunset Royale Beachfront Penthouse honeymoon, it doesn't get much better!
One last item. I mentioned at the beginning of this page that I would tell you about the hardest task for your wedding, it's the marriage commitment of "for better or worse". These are not just words, but a vow that you both make to spend the rest of your life realizing that this beautiful day is the first day of your married life and the first day of give and take, happiness and sorrow that you and your partner must work very hard to always reflect on this day being the beginning of the best time of your lives. Every year on Valentines Day, February 14, Sarasota Country holds "Say I DO Again" on Siesta Key Beach. If you can't be there, always remember this very special wedding day on Valentines Day and let your partner know how wonderful the wedding day was. Nann and I would like to encourage you to plan on returning to Siesta Key throughout your marriage. This really is a magical tropical island and you both experienced a memorable wedding day on this incredible beach.
