Wedding season is here in Southwest, Florida and mid-fall is a perfect time of year to select for your outdoor wedding in Naples and the surrounding areas of Marco Island or Sanibel and Captiva. The skies are blue, the temperatures are mild, and rain chances are low. For the cost-conscious among you, from the fledgling young couple picking up the entire tab yourself to the couple who may have done this before and want to do it right but not have to take out a second mortgage, you can’t beat this time of year…. the prices haven’t peaked either which helps us get you more from your wish list for your budget.

Because rainy season has basically ended, you’ll enjoy comfortable temperatures during your ceremony, you wont be sweating like crazy during pictures and cocktail hour, and reception will be absolute heaven. Did I mention the tiny little mosquitos we call no-see-ums are gone? Honestly, its paradise around here this time of year! However, Mother Nature can be unpredictable and when researching venues it’s imperative that you ask about their back-up plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate for your event.

Timing and seasonality are especially important if you’re on a limited budget. November through April is peak wedding season in Naples and surrounding areas because the weather is so perfect. If having a beach ceremony or outdoor wedding isn’t that important to you, consider an indoor ceremony and reception during the summer months when venues and vendors are more likely to have lower prices and greater flexibility with packaging. Hotels like the Marco Marriott, Naples Hilton, and Naples Bay Resort as well as country clubs like the Club at Grandezza and Kensington Country Club have large indoor spaces.
