Planning a fall beach wedding on Sanibel Island

While the sandy beaches of Sanibel Island are popular destination year-round, the fall months are particularly enjoyable, boasting average lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s and 80s.

These rich autumn-inspired colors can be incorporated into accessories, décor and in-season bouquets creating a unique look that is in tune with the fall months.

The opportunities are endless!

West Wind Inn | Islander Essentials for the Perfect Sanibel WeddingWhen planning a beach wedding any time of year, it is important to take weather conditions into consideration. The month of October is popular for couples to say their “I dos,” as the potential threat of rain or hurricanes begins to ebb. Regardless, should any unforeseen weather arise, West Wind Inn provides indoor accommodations that will shelter you and your guests from the elements.

Sunny Sanibel Island during the fall season brings great weather that, unlike many locations, typically remains pleasantly warm during the day with a slight chill in the evening hours. Should the weather dip, heaters can be strategically placed to ensure that your guests remain comfortable during the ceremony and reception so that they can focus on what’s really important: the newlyweds!

Let our event coordinator guide you on the path to a flawless day. As year-round islanders, the team at West Wind Inn can provide insight into the typical weather conditions, which can help you and your guests plan for your wedding day.
