Beach weddings are synonymous with serenity and peacefulness. You can’t beat the ambiance of our tropical island destination, featuring miles of shell-strewn beaches.
Our inspiring view creates an instant backdrop for your special day. Your guests will delight in the beauty of the scenery-which at Sundial, often includes dolphins, manatees and a host of shorebirds!

Our tips for hosting a dreamy beach wedding

  • Keep it simple – Don’t go overboard with décor! There is no need to compete with the beauty of your Sanibel beach setting
  • Let your guests know what to expect – Be sure to include on your invitations and wedding website that your ceremony is being held outdoors and on sand so that your guests can dress appropriately and be prepared for sunny weather.
  • Don’t try to please others – This is YOUR dream day. Have fun and be authentic to who you are.
  • Pick a theme – Choose a theme that pairs well with the beauty, simplicity and tranquility of the beach, and stick with it!
  • Celebrate your beautiful day with us – With beautiful white sand beaches and gentle sea breezes, pristine Sanibel Island, Florida is the perfect backdrop for your special day.
