Weddings and Special Events

Are you planning a Florida Beach Wedding? Perhaps a special event?

The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce is your one stop shop for all the information you need to pull off your dream wedding or special event. As unique as the love you share and the memories you create, an Anna Maria Island beach wedding or ceremony offers memories that last a lifetime! Imagine sauntering down the aisle with sand in your toes, sharing your vows as you hear the natural music of the waves from the Gulf of Mexico hitting our sugar sand shore line.  Watch a sunset as you reflect about your special someone on your anniversary. Enjoy the beach, picnics, biking, shopping and dining as you celebrate your birthday. Stay with your guests in our lovely island accommodations, including Anna Maria Island beachside hotels. The white sandy beach, blue skies and azure water create the ideal back drop for your memorable event. Anna Maria Island has all the services and amenities you need to support any celebration, large or small. Today, Anna Maria Island beach destination weddings are becoming so popular that many are referring to our perfect wedding setting as the “Beach Wedding Capital of Florida”. With all that our island offers, it is no wonder that Anna Maria Island brides come from all over the nation, and internationally to plan their weddings on a beautiful island where they can find anything they need to achieve that perfect island wedding. Be sure to ask to see the fine print when planning your celebration on the beaches of Anna Maria Island as you may encounter a few “surprise guests” such as dolphins, sea turtles and tropical birds!  Your dream wedding is awaiting you on Anna Maria Island.
