Where to Get Married in Anna Maria Island

The first thing you need to nail down is your venue location. The venue we recommend more than any other is Club Bamboo. The club is a waterfront wedding venue for big parties that can also have a more casual beach setting. You can have the ceremony in our club cabana, and guests can stay at any of the numerous on-site Anna Maria Island vacation rentals, which allows weekend stays for flexibility and affordability.

It’s a dazzling way to welcome a lifelong commitment between two people. If you have any questions about how to plan your wedding at Club Bamboo and what to expect, contact our team today. We can help guide you to the right source.

We also have large homes that sleep up to 10 guests, which is another great option for some smaller wedding parties.

Consider the Size of Your Wedding Party

Whether your group is large or small, we can assist you in finding an Anna Maria Island accommodation that will fit your needs. You can grab a Bradenton Beach rental and have the reception party there, inviting all your friends and enjoying luxury amenities, like instant access to one of Anna Maria Island’s best beaches, a beautiful deck or balcony, and a fully stocked kitchen.

Anna Maria Island is specific in how long you can stay on the island. Due to popular demand and seasonal traffic, there are some limits to consider. Our rentals offer often difficult to find weekend stays so you can escape for the full three-day weekend and have a rewarding and memorable wedding escape.

You can also house your extended family in their own rentals while keeping the wedding couple in their own private romantic cottage.

With our varied list of vacation rentals, different family groups can stay in different areas, while all coming together for the big event. Many of our homes sleep 8 to 10 guests.

It’s an ideal setup for a big wedding, a family reunion, and any other large-scale special event.

Other Locations

Aside from hosting one of the best beach house weddings the island has ever seen, what are some other excellent options?

There are some restaurants that specialize in weddings. The largest and most iconic is perhaps the Sandbar Restaurant. Guests, quite literally, rest their toes in the sand as they dine on lobster, crab cakes, and more. The Sandbar can rent out an entire area for you to have the wedding ceremony on the beach and simply walk on up to take a seat in the expansive outdoor covered patio.

There are so many different ways to have a wedding on the island, from renting one or multiple homes to finding the perfect Anna Maria Island restaurants to have cater the event. What is the best approach for you?
