Winter wedding bouquet of red peonies and cotton

Tying the knot on a beach is a picturesque way to start the rest of your life with the one you love.

Florida is a fast-growing favorite for couples in search of a wedding location that has dramatic coastline views, impeccable weather, and accessibility.

During the winter months, Sanibel Island is a popular location for beach weddings in Southwest Florida. There is something magical about a wedding near the Holidays and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico waters; this makes West Wind Island Resort the perfect and enchanting venue for a winter beach wedding.

The décor at a warm and sunny beach wedding doesn’t have to scream ”beachy”.

A winter wedding introduces a variety of different colors schemes, including combinations of red, green, gold, silver, and white. While you can dare to be different,  you can still include traditional beach colors of teal, blue, and tan.  The beauty of a winter theme is it can include festive accents like warm-scented candles, dried cranberries, leafless branches, and stringed lights.

A winter-themed beach wedding can include all your holiday favorites without taking away from the beautiful seashore scenery. Don’t forget about the wintery beach themed party favors to accompany your special day, like initialed beach-inspired ornaments, ocean-scented candles, or coffee mugs.
