Siesta Key & Lido Key

Siesta Key

Siesta Key is known for having the whitest and finest sand in the world and for hosting Sarasota beach weddings every day of the year. Named number # 1 US beach by Trip Advisor in 2015, Siesta Key’s beaches are the beach benchmark for which all other beaches are judged. Located about 1.5 hours south of Tampa Bay. Very popular and crowded, so plan ahead to secure your slice of heaven on this beach. Sarasota Beach wedding permit is required ($185), with 3 zones to choose from at the main beach area (948 Beach Rd). Scheduling with the county is required due to the abundance of Siesta Key beach weddings each and every day. We can certainly suggest less crowded and free beaches for a romantic ceremony, but there are many couples that simply want to say they had a Siesta Key beach wedding-and so if that is the wish, we’ll make it happen! Lots of home and condo rentals on this island, plus 2 miles from the wedding location is a plethora of dining options all along Ocean Drive. Once you arrive, no need to leave paradise!  

Lido Key

Lido Key is just north of Siesta Key and a 1/2 mile south of St. Armand’s Circle, a well known strip for shopping and dining. Although smaller than Siesta, Lido Key’s beaches pack a surprising variety into a compact area. Three wedding zones to choose from, though our favorite is the southern tip of Lido, known as South Lido. Wander through winding paths in the park to a quiet spot on the beach for your nuptials. Lido Key is a more narrow beach than Siesta, also surrounded by tall pine trees and ground vegetation. Best of both worlds with the beach and park all in one location. Picnic areas throughout the park plus the nicest public restrooms we've ever come across! Beach wedding permit is required ($185). Definitely more secluded than Siesta Key!
