Getting married on the beach is a romantic way to pledge you love to your life partner. Here are some parks and civil rules for weddings.
Eighth Avenue South
The beach end at Eighth Avenue South often called the Wedding Beach or Wedding Park, has always been a popular location for a wedding. Reconstruction of the park several years ago took this into account, and the park was designed with space for seating, lush, picturesque landscaping and the appropriate backdrop of sand, sky and setting sun (at least if the sun is setting at the time of your wedding).
What this location does not have is parking. Parking is available at adjoining beach ends but cannot be reserved, so many wedding parties will shuttle guests in from other locations, such as the City Pier lot at 12th Avenue South, Third Street Parking areas or the city's parking garages on 8th Street South.
Other popular wedding locations include Vedado Way, Horizon Way, and several other locations.
The Beach Proper
Nothing stops you from walking onto the beach and having a simple small quick ceremony for under six people, no reservations or fees involved. You must find proper parking of course, and use a legal beach access point (there are many in Naples) to get to the beach, but no other requirements are involved. For ceremonies of six or more you must follow the reservation process as described below.
You cannot block beach access, reserve any beach area or obstruct the lawful use of the beach by anyone else. You cannot have live music or amplified sound and cannot set out chairs, standards or other fixtures which might obstruct the use of the beach. Great for an impromptu, informal wedding with just a few friends or relatives, unacceptable for a major function.
Use of a beach end or beach proper for more than 6 people requires a reservation and fee. Please contact Community Services at 239-213- 7120 or more information, a list of locations and to reserve the space. You may not have music or amplified sound without an approved permit. You cannot block beach access, reserve any beach area or obstruct the lawful use of the beach by anyone else.
