The following are some of the concerns that you will need to keep in mind when choosing your Anna Maria Island wedding venue. Have the number of guests that you know will be attending in mind when looking for your perfect Anna Maria Island venue. Be prepared to accommodate up to 20 extra guests just in case there are some last minute additions. Be sure to ask about the availability of the chairs and tables. Do they supply dishes and linens or do you need to rent them from another source. Is there a kitchen on site or do the caterers need to have everything ready when they arrive? Is there a staging area for the food? Do you plan on having a D.J. or a live band? A band will take up more space than a D.J. will. Do you plan on having a bar? If so do they have any facilities for this or will you need to rent a bar station? Are there on site picture locations for your time with a photographer? What is their cancellation policy? Do they require a deposit and if so, how much? Will you need any permits or licenses? Most importantly, is the back drop of the location what you want for all your perfect Anna Maria Island beach wedding memories?

Anna Maria Island has many different types of venues to offer for your reception and ceremony. Any number of sites can make a perfect wedding reception venue. Here are some ideas. Restaurants and pubs can work out nicely. The food will be on site so you won't have to find a catering service. A restaurant or Pub will have limited space for guests so it is really more ideal for a smaller Anna Maria Island reception. Sailing or kayaking clubs will often have large rooms with great water views to rent. This may be a good option if you have a medium sized wedding guest list. Hotels and motels on Anna Maria Island will often be right on the beach. This is a good option if you have some guests that have some mobility limitations as hotels will be handicap friendly. Hotels will also have a kitchen. Find out if they have a chef that is capable of catering the kitchen or if you can rent the kitchen for a catering service. There are a couple banquet halls to consider as well as a few homes on the island that are larger and will allow for medium sized groups to have weddings. If you have in mind what you are looking for, you may consider hiring a local wedding planner to help guide you to the people that can help you out.
