Spreading Joy Through Beach Weddings
Gulf Beach Weddings currently services 6 out of TripAdvisors ‘Best of the Best’ Top 13 nationally recognized beaches in 2023, including 4 out of the top 5! In comparison, Florida currently holds 8 of the Top 25 spots – that’s nearly a third of the entire poll for the United States! Our exclusive Tampa beach wedding locations have been hand-selected over the years to provide the most beautiful and convenient wedding sites for a destination wedding! See all of our Florida Beach Weddings locations.
Privacy, ease of access, ample parking, lively boardwalks, areas for picturesque photos, palm trees and white sand, limited or no permit fees, and locations close to amenities (but far enough away from the busy beach-goers) are just some of the perks. Each location is geared toward the sunset ceremony; we have personally serviced hundreds of weddings at each of these locations, so you can be sure that they are proven and tested. Check out our Gulf Beach Wedding Reviews and what our couples have to say!
Keep in mind, we are not limited to the locations listed. Over the years, we have created beautiful destination weddings at condominiums, hotels, resorts, private beach houses, the beautiful Straub & Vinoy Park, and the Hyatt Regency on Clearwater Beach. We can setup just about anywhere with permission and access! However, we have found that the locations listed below are the most inviting and convenient in Florida for a destination beach wedding.

IS A GULF BEACH WEDDING FOR ME?
Here’s the thing…Beach weddings are not for everyone. Before you set your sights on a beach wedding, ask yourself some questions:
- If you want to have hundreds of guests, dreamed of walking down the aisle in six-inch heels and you just prefer rigid formality over a good time, a beach wedding may not be for you.
- If you have a mother, grandmother, aunt or big sister who is going to run the show and control every element, then a beach wedding may not be for you.
- If your idea of a good time doesn’t include lounging in the sun, enjoying the country’s best beaches and reuniting with family and friends over drinks at the beach bar, a beach wedding may not be for you.
- If you have no interest in water sports, outdoor activities, late nights, long talks, good friends and 60–75-degree weather in January, then a beach wedding may not be for you.
- If you are not interested in sand between your toes and own at least one pair of sunglasses, then a beach wedding may not be for you.
Still not sure if a beach wedding is for you? See all that apply:
- You rarely (if ever) are accused of being overly formal.
- You don’t take life too seriously and get a thrill out of seeing the people around you let loose and have fun.
- You love turquoise water, dramatic sunsets, alabaster-white sand, and natural beauty over anything man made.
- You don’t want to begin marriage with nothing in your bank account or (even worse) in debt. Use the savings to put a down payment on a new house.
