For many Americans who want a beach destination for their wedding, Florida's beaches are the first place to choose from. And Seaside, FL, offers an unforgettable time for the couple and all their guests as the best beach wedding destination in Florida.
The quaint town of Seaside is a unique star shining among the many choices, with luxury guest accommodations in walking distance from gorgeous wedding venues, in a community offering casually gourmet food and professional wedding services, and all graced with a lovely private beach.
Why Seaside, Florida?
Situated on the gorgeous Emerald Coast of Florida, miles of white sand fronting the teal waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Seaside is a gem in that necklace of oceanfront towns strung along scenic Hwy 30A. Impossibly quaint, designed for walking and with a true community of neighbors, Seaside also has the largest private beach along the entire coast, reserved for locals and guests.
For a successful wedding, you want perfect guest accommodations, professional services and lovely venues. Seaside has them all.
There are no hotels or high-rises in Seaside. This architectural gem of a town - the setting for Jim Carrey's Truman Show movie - offers pastel painted guest cottages with white picket fences, with a neighborhood feel where guests become locals instantly, in a welcoming community.
Time slows down here, in a safe and friendly community where you can walk or bike the whole town, discovering eclectic boutiques, eateries and galleries around every corner. Kids will love the Airstream Row food trucks, while the elders of the wedding party will enjoy the slow pace of life, with neighborly relations, a throwback to a quieter time in America.
Cottages can accommodate from 2 to 14 people, and guests can book cottages next door to each other, for a gathering that offers privacy and neighborliness. Pride of ownership shows in the well appointed cottages with beautiful furnishings and extra touches, as well as our complimentary gift packages to welcome you to town. And our Concierge team can assist you with anything and everything.
Getting to Seaside is easy, with a limo or shuttle from the nearby airport, and plenty of parking for those who drive. The surrounding region is pristine and superb, for guests who want to explore, but Seaside itself is an adventure simply to stroll through - most cars don't get started again until it's time to leave.
Beach Wedding Venues
Getting to the wedding is a stress-free appointment in Seaside, as the beach and the wedding venues are only steps away for all guests - you can't get lost, especially with friendly neighbors to show you the way, and our Concierge service to make sure everything is arranged to your satisfaction.
Wedding venues in Seaside can accommodate an intimate group of a very few people, or scale up to a formal arrangement for 200 people, and everything in between. See all the Wedding Venues available for your ceremony and your reception.
The Seaside beach can take up to 100 guests for a spacious and solemn ceremony under the skies - when love is just too big to fit indoors. And the Pavilions perched on the dunes offer the skies and the vast ocean views in the open air but from under a roof. Meanwhile a street or two away, larger events can be formally arranged on the Lyceum Lawn or the classically elegant Ruskin Square.
The beach and the town of Seaside are waiting, for you and your guests to enjoy the hospitality of its locals, your neighbors, in the perfect beach wedding destination.
Seaside is a popular place to get married in, and there are many experienced and professional Wedding Planners who can take care of the thousand details that make up that special day - the couple should give themselves a break for their momentous occasion, and focus just on the romance, while local experts make sure the event is perfect.
Wedding planners can often save on expense by working to a budget, and creatively keeping the love story of the couple front and center during the occasion. You want the best photography or videography for those memories, you want the perfect choices of food and drink for the guests, as well as any entertainment and last-minute beautician, seamstress or caterer assistance.
Seaside and its people will take care of everything for your perfect Wedding Day. While you prepare, your guests will be quite busy exploring all the amenities and discoveries that this hospitable, multi-generational town has to offer.
And after the ceremony, stay for the honeymoon. And come back, as many do, for anniversaries - and many of those, to be sure.
