Sundial Is The Perfect Sanibel Island Wedding Venue

DATE: March 17, 2016

A recent destination wedding held at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa had all the makings of a picture-perfect wedding, from beginning to end.

As your Sanibel Island wedding venue, we at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa are happy to share these ideas with you in the hope that it may offer inspiration for your own upcoming wedding.

Destination Wedding Headquarters

We really are your destination wedding headquarters. Bring your wedding party and all of your guests down to Sanibel Island for an unforgettable wedding weekend. We have a variety of venues that will work for each of the different events you are planning, from the rehearsal dinner to the farewell brunch and everything in between.

Welcome Reception

As your guests arrive to start the weekend celebration, you’ll want to plan a welcome reception. This is the perfect time to greet your guests and get everyone in the celebratory mood. Pass out the weekend’s itinerary and go over the details. Our covered terrace overlooking the pool makes the perfect spot for the welcome reception. (In the case of inclement weather, we always have an indoor space reserved for your function.)

Sundial Beach Resort & Spa is the perfect venue for your wedding!

The Special Extras

To make your wedding weekend really unique, how about a cigar roller at your welcome reception? Guests will enjoy watching him roll and make the cigars himself. Each can include a monogrammed band with what else, the initial of the bride and groom.  Everyone will be talking about your wedding!

Rehearsal Dinner

Our Waterview Private Dining Room makes the perfect spot for your rehearsal dinner with its panoramic views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Our catering staff can assist in planning the perfectly plated dinner or buffet.


Consider holding your wedding ceremony on our West Lawn. The expansive lawn overlooking the Gulf creates a romantic, tropical backdrop with its swaying palm trees and the soft whisper of waves. Or, exchange vows directly on the shell-strewn sandy beach with the blue-green waters surrounding you.

Cocktail Hour  

While the bridal party is busy with final photographs, your guests will relish the breathtaking views during cocktail hour on the Sundial Terrace. Like this recent couple, consider having a solo saxophonist playing soothing tunes as your guests enjoy passed hors-d’oeuvres and the terrace fire pits. Can you picture it?


Our Sundial Ballroom can seat up to 250 guests making it the ideal venue for your wedding reception. For an outdoor affair, Turtle’s Beach provides a private hedged beach location overlooking the Gulf.

Farewell Brunch 

For final goodbyes, plan a farewell brunch the morning after your wedding on our hibiscus bordered Lace Murex Lawn, which affords views of the Gulf in a verdant setting complete with tall palms.

With a multitude of location options for your wedding events, each of your functions can offer variety coupled with the convenience of never needing to leave the resort grounds. Create everlasting memories of your unique vision. Contact Tiffany Onischuk at 239-395-6009 or email and say “I Do” in paradise.
