Affordable Wedding Destination in Fort Myers Beach, FL.

This is a sponsored post.

One of my hubby’s nephews got married in Florida four years ago around this time of the year. Both the bride and groom live in Illinois but the wedding took place in Florida. I think it was the bride’s choice. She wanted to have a beach wedding. I don’t blame her. The stunning beaches and fantastic resorts in Florida make it a great choice for special moments in life.

The sunshine state is teeming with both indoor and outdoor venues for magical weddings, no matter what theme or motif you are planning to have for your big day. Even though most people would think first of Miami or Orlando, there are TONS of superb wedding reception venues to choose from across many cities, especially on the state’s Gulf of Mexico coast. If I could do all over again, the one I would choose to tie the knot in is located in sunny Fort Myers Beach.

Pink Shell Resort and Marina, named both the Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice Award in 2017 and #2 Top Florida Resort by Conde Nast Travel Readers has received these accolades for a reason. The resort boasts a private white sand beach that is available to book your event or wedding as well as a tropical Butterfly Garden event space. To me, that sounds like a perfect kind of fairy-tale wedding venue! If the outdoors aren’t your preference, don’t worry! They also offer indoor ballrooms as a venue option.

Pink Shell can accommodate weddings from 20-150 guests and offer one- and two-bedroom condo suites for overnight guests. The resort is truly a wonderful choice for beach or destination weddings. You would surely want everything to be as perfect as possible, right? By choosing a venue here, you are already halfway there. And to get you the other half of the way, they have professional wedding coordinators on site to make sure your special day is everything you dreamed of. The coordinators are real wedding professionals, and their services are included with every wedding. They walk you through every step, from your first planning questions to being there for you on the day of your wedding!

The Pink Shell is a full-service resort. So after your event space and guest rooms are taken care of, they have plenty of options to keep everyone entertained and satisfied. They have two restaurants – one in the open air right on the Gulf and one indoors that is a local award-winner. They have a full-service spa, with every type of treatment you can think of. Their private beach has watercraft rentals, a marina, and activities every day for the whole family – even outdoor movies and stargazing with local astronomers!

The benefit of choosing a venue like Pink Shell in Ft. Myers Beach rather than more frequented destinations is not only getting the blue ocean and the powdery white sand beaches all to yourself, but also the affordability of seeking a more obscure, and in my opinion, authentic, destination than the usual Florida destinations.
