Southwest Florida is home to pristine white sandy beaches and with nearly perfect year round weather, there is no better choice than here to celebrate your vows. The following destination wedding tips will help you get started planning your dream wedding with us. 

Wedding Season 

Wedding season is year round in sunny Southwest Florida! Many of our residents are snowbirds who come south for what we call season which runs from October through April. During this time, event space can be at a premium with all the events happening so make sure to lock in your vendors as soon as possible. The weather tends to be warm and mild October – April but don’t completely write off the months of May – September. While the area can be a little more rainy it tends to be in passing showers and the rest of the day is sunny and warm.  

Picking the right venue Crave Bites

Choosing the venue helps set the mood of your wedding and unique venues are plentiful in Southwest Florida for every style and budget. From our pristine beaches to beautiful and unique indoor spaces, Crave Culinaire works with many distinctive locations as their preferred vendor.  

The venue you choose should reflect your personality and make you feel comfortable. When you visit your site, make sure to take plenty of pictures and videos of the event space and grounds as well as learn who your point of contact will be. Videos and photos will help you remember what the space looks like so you can make decisions about colors, themes and layout. 

Including your Guests 

Destination weddings are a popular but expensive choice. Inviting friends and family to a destination wedding should be well planned and timely. Giving them as much notice as possible helps them make travel plans, request time off of work and find childcare if needed. Extending your guests’ experience outside of your wedding day is also a nice touch. If your budget allows, consider the following options: 

  • Coordinate a group activity at a local business like glass blowing or pottery 
  • Host a casual meet & greet at your home, a beach picnic, or fun cooking class by one of the Crave chefs 
  • Provide tickets to a local attraction like the zoo or museum 

Communicating all of the information about your wedding weekend to guests is critical. Make sure to keep your wedding website up to date and include information in your save the date and wedding invitations. 

Destination weddings are very common and becoming easier to coordinate and plan. Crave Culinaire works diligently to make sure our clients events run smoothly and are everything they expected and more.
