Have Your Wedding In Paradise

   By: Sandra Canfield

Southwest Florida is well-known for its wide sandy beaches, palm trees full of coconuts and warm winters. Did you realize that you can have a romantic sunrise or sunset ceremony right on the beach during the winter? Perhaps your dream is a garden setting, a gazebo, residence or yacht. It is your wedding your way in SW Florida.

As the Florida sun sparkles off the Gulf of Mexico , you are assured a fantasy wedding which is complimented by a spectacular tropical Florida sunset. Those wanting a tropical wedding in a lush garden or the extravagance accommodated by fine restaurants, resorts and hotels, will find it here in Lee County. Everything is at your fingertips. From formalware, entertainment, wedding photographers, jewelers, limousine service and caterers to wedding planners who can help ease the stress and professionally assemble your most cherished life event.

You and your loved one need only to visit the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court in any Florida county to apply for a marriage license. Both of you must have a valid photo identification, such as a driver's license, and your social security number. International visitors who wish to tie the knot in Florida must have a valid passport and a translator, if necessary, who has a valid U.S. driver's license. No blood tests are required for a marriage license, and there is no waiting period unless you are already a Florida resident-then you must wait three days. Once you have the license, you can get married at any time within the next 60 days. After that, the license expires and you must get a new one.

Unforgettable weddings in the most beautiful tropical locations that Southwestern Florida has to offer. I have compiled a list of full service wedding planners and related services in our area for your reference below.
