Best Beach Wedding Locations In Pinellas County

Clearwater Beach Weddings

When it comes to vibrant energy and a bustling atmosphere, Clearwater Beach stands in a league of its own. Known for its powdery white sand and crystal-clear waters, this iconic beach is a magnet for tourists and locals alike. 


If you’re looking for a beach wedding location that offers a wide range of accommodations, dining options, and entertainment possibilities, Clearwater Beach has it all. But keep in mind that the popularity of this destination means traffic can get congested, beaches will be full, and parking can be challenging to find, and, of course, the noise and rowdiness that comes with a touristy beach locale may affect the wedding experience. 


If you want to tie the knot on Clearwater Beach, it’s essential to consider the proximity of your ceremony location to where you and your guests are staying or where the reception will take place. Doing this will make it easier for guests to get to the ceremony and reception.


It’s also important to realize that the popularity of Clearwater Beach also means there will be many people around to watch your ceremony. If that’s a concern, look at one of the other ideas on our best beach wedding locations in Pinellas County list. 

And don’t get me wrong…Clearwater Beach is a fantastic beach ceremony setting, and if you stick around to the end of this post, I’ll reveal my number one secret location, which is the absolute best!!

Fort Desoto Park Weddings

For nature enthusiasts seeking a tranquil and picturesque setting, Ft. Desoto Park is an idyllic choice. This sprawling park encompasses stunning beaches, lush greenery, and even historic landmarks, providing a unique backdrop for your special day. 


While it provides a serene escape from the city, remember that Ft. Desoto Park is a bit further away from popular tourist hubs, so that it may be best suited for couples prioritizing seclusion over proximity to other amenities.

Fort Desoto weddings are an unforgettable experience, but there can be restrictions on dates, times, and what you can do on the beach, so it’s best to check with the park to ensure you can meet their requirements. Also, there is an admission fee to enter the park; keep this in mind, as it can impact the guest experience. 

Indian Rocks Beach 

If you desire a beach wedding location with a lower tourist count and a charming, laid-back atmosphere, Indian Rocks Beach is a hidden gem worth considering. This tranquil stretch of sand is known for its uncrowded shores and stunning sunsets. 


With fewer tourists, you can enjoy a more intimate and serene celebration with your loved ones. Indian Rocks Beach offers a variety of accommodations and dining options within close proximity, making it convenient for couples and their guests. It’s truly an excellent choice for a Florida beach wedding. 

Pass-A-Grille Weddings

Pass-A-Grille is an enchanting beach wedding destination for those yearning for the utmost privacy and seclusion. Nestled at the southernmost end of St. Pete Beach, this quaint and historic community offers a serene and intimate setting for your special day. Pass-A-Grille boasts a less crowded beach, allowing you and your loved ones to relish in the natural beauty without distractions. 

The name “Pass-a-Grille” is believed to have originated from the French word “passe aux grilleurs,” meaning “channel of the grillers.” It refers to the natural waterway that early fishermen used to navigate through the area’s sandy shoals. (you didn’t know you’d get a little history lesson today, huh?) 

Today, Pass-a-Grille retains its old-world charm with its narrow streets, quaint beach cottages, and slower pace of life. The convenience of nearby parking, just a few yards from the beach, also adds to its appeal, which is something other beaches may not have.

Sand Key Beach

Sand Key Beach offers a balance between tranquility and accessibility. Like all beach locations in Florida, this picturesque beach showcases pristine sands, inviting turquoise waters, and stunning panoramic views. While it is located near Clearwater Beach (just across the bridge), Sand Key Beach tends to be less crowded, making it an appealing option for couples seeking a more peaceful ambiance. 

But, the distance between the parking lot and the beach should also be considered, as it may impact convenience for guests. The stretch of beach on Sand Key is dotted with condominiums and a few hotels, so parking will generally have to be at one of them, so you may need to make special arrangements for your guests. 

St Petersburg Beach

Next on our list is St. Petersburg Beach, and what a stunner she is! Offering a vibrant and lively atmosphere, perfect for couples who want a beach wedding infused with a sense of fun and excitement, St Petersburg weddings never disappoint. 


With its expansive shoreline and energetic beachfront activities, this destination has much to offer. It’s not as busy as Clearwater Beach but does attract more tourists than other beaches, so again, you may want to explore other options if you want a more private affair. 

But on the flip side, St. Petersburg Beach provides many choices for accommodations, dining, and entertainment, making it convenient for wedding guests.

Dunedin Beach

Dunedin’s downtown area is a bustling hub of activity, filled with unique shops, art galleries, craft breweries, and various dining options. The Main Street corridor is lined with historic buildings, creating a nostalgic and inviting atmosphere. The town is renowned for its vibrant arts scene, hosting numerous art festivals, gallery walks, and live performances annually. 

These events and traits of the quaint town can make for an incredible and unforgettable wedding weekend for your guests, especially the ones from out of town. 

Nature lovers will find plenty to explore in Dunedin. The town is home to the stunning Honeymoon Island State Park, which offers beautiful sandy beaches, nature trails, and a chance to spot wildlife such as ospreys and dolphins. Caladesi Island State Park, accessible by ferry, is another nearby gem with pristine beaches and untouched natural landscapes.

Like Fort Desoto Park, Honeymoon Island, and Caldesi Island are state parks, so you’ll need to verify their restrictions for getting married there. You may want to work with a Florida wedding planner to help iron out the details and plan the perfect beach wedding. 


Madeira Beach

Madeira Beach is a popular beach destination in Pinellas County that offers a beautiful setting for a beach wedding. Like the others on our list of best beach wedding locations in Pinellas County, Madiera Beach is known for its soft white sand and crystal-clear waters, offering a stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico. All of the beaches in Florida are stunning. 


However, the beach can be pretty crowded during peak season due to its popularity, so couples should remember this when choosing their wedding date. The parking lot is just a short distance from the beach, but it can be busy during peak season, so couples should plan accordingly. 


But Madeira Beach is also conveniently located near several hotels and resorts, making it easy for guests to find accommodations nearby. 


There you go, my rundown on the best beach wedding locations in Pinellas County; it’s up to you to decide what’s important to you to determine which one is best for your “I Do’s.” Is the proximity of parking important, accommodations close by or minimal amounts of looky-loos most important to you?


Need help to decide? Give me a call; I can walk you through each location’s pros and cons. And as promised, here is my secret, the absolute best beach wedding location in Florida – Pass-A-Grille Beach; it is the most private and the best beach wedding location in Florida.

 The following terms (the “Agreement”) shall be effective upon execution of the purchase process by you (“Customer” or “You”).


Your Agreement with Beach Weddings with Style LLC (together with its contractors) will last for the term specified for your upcoming wedding.  NO TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY IS TRANSFERRED TO THE CUSTOMER IN THIS CONTRACT.


Beach Weddings with Style LLC contractor list is continually evolving. There is no guaranty that during the Initial Term or any Renewal Term any third-party partners that previously worked with Beach Weddings with Style LLC Network will remain the same. Partners may be added or removed at any time without notice to Customer.


Beach Weddings with Style LLC is constantly reviewing its product and service offerings to strive to provide its customers with the best options available. Beach Weddings with Style LLC retains the right to revise its product and/or service offerings, at any time. Additionally, Beach Weddings with Style LLC reserves the right to add additional products and services. Purchase of a current product or service does not guarantee the exact setup – our Wedding Packages are constantly evolving in a positive manner to offer our clients more for less.  You will not be charged for upgrades if we increase features (‘Amenities’) that differ from the original purchased package.


 Weather in Tampa Bay area is extremely unpredictable. Forecast may change throughout the day, hour by hour, we will always do everything in our power to work with you. Depending on the severity of the rain, you may not be able to have your ceremony as we planned. If there are any breaks in the weather, we will head out on to the sand for more pictures and celebration. If case a storm doesn’t let us have your wedding, we can decide to have your ceremony on the next day, or choose another date for up to 365 days from the original ceremony date (depending on our and vendor availability). Being flexible with your wedding time is something to expect as sometimes we may need to move the wedding time to avoid the rain. Having  Event Weather Insurance is great for hurricanes and storms. Having wedding insurance is essential since the weather is Florida is unpredictable. Should the wedding need to be moved into alternative location and it is available, this option is an accommodation and may not include all the setup materials originally included with your wedding package. There will be no ‘discount’ in this event as we will do our best to setup as much as we can accordingly. In all cases, we are not responsible for weather related events and their potential risks associated. We will always make every effort to have your Beach Wedding out on the sand!  


The Location and Time Booked is not guaranteed.  We are subject to different Municipalities, Cities, National Parks, County Parks, Local Government, and State Parks – we make every effort to ensure the original location is reserved as quickly as possible, however, this is an active calendar and last-minute bookings can occur.  Further, other events may take precedence (Festivals, Concerts, Food Rally’s, etc.) and we are subject to cancellation.  We ask that couples remain flexible as we always work in their best interest to find a suitable alternate location and date in this rare event.


All locations are subject to Public Parking.  Please plan accordingly for parking and unusual traffic patterns.  It’s always best to arrive early and stay in an air-conditioned car as we start promptly on time.  Certain locations include the Entrance Fee. We are not allowed to reserve parking spots.  That’s why we recommend avoiding the middle of the day on Saturday/Holiday weekends.  Most locations have metered parking and can range from $1.50-4/hour or a flat fee for the day.


Non-refundable deposit is required to start a planning process. By purchasing a ceremony package on our website your will get an estimate on how much can that be. You can pay right there on check out or via email link after our phone call. The remaining balance is due no later than 90 days before the wedding date. If the payment is 5 days late your wedding will be canceled.

You can reschedule your wedding by giving us a notice 90 days prior to the wedding date, and the new date needs to be booked within 90 days of original date.

If you cancel your wedding ceremony, the full amount for all payments made shall not be refunded.



Saturday or Sunday mid-day or even early afternoon is not the best time for a wedding (beach goers, parking, traffic, etc.).  We instead recommend before 11am or after 4pm to avoid the busiest time of the date.  If you will be in town for the week, we highly recommend Monday – Friday (non-holiday weeks)!  Certain locations provide more privacy than others.  Further, the only way to have a completely private location would be on Private Property facing the Gulf of Mexico. We recommend all guests seated during the ceremony.  There are several reasons for this:  Line of Sight for the Photographer and overall organization of the event/ceremony. The Permit obtained does not guarantee us a location. All of the locations we service are located in Public Beach & Neighborhood Access points, therefore not Private Beach.  If you have specific questions regarding this, please don’t hesitate to call/email us anytime.


 Customer may purchase products and/or services in a variety of ways including Self-Checkout or email with a sales quote and payment link. Minimum deposit is required to reserve the date, permit, and vendors, and all payments need to be paid completely 90 days prior to the scheduled wedding.
