We have the ideal place to say “I do” . . . on the sugar white sands of Anna Maria Island or Longboat Key, along the Gulf of Mexico on Florida’s West Coast. Our islands are very popular destinations for holding weddings and vow renewals, particularly at sunset. With awe-inspiring sunsets, gentle waves and miles of soft, white-sand beaches, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key offer the perfect setting for romance. Our islands have a truly tropical ambiance with superb weather year ’round. The Bradenton Area Convention & Visitors Bureau can help you find your dream wedding location; assist with lodging for your family; and introduce you to florists, cake bakers, photographers, videographers, clergy and more.
