Florida is a dream wedding location for many reasons—great weather, amazing attractions, sugar sand beaches, and even historical sites. What more could you possibly wish for?

The Florida Panhandle has all of the amenities listed above and more, making it the ideal spot for weddings of any size.

Whether you want to say “I do” with your toes in the sand or underneath an old oak dripping with Spanish moss, the Panhandle can make it all possible.

Panhandle Perfection

Nestled between emerald waters and the lush, natural Florida landscape, the Florida Panhandle has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

While Florida has no lack of beautiful beaches, the ones in the Panhandle are typically less crowded than the more popular Daytona and Miami. But this doesn’t mean you’ll have to sacrifice the aesthetics of a Florida beach wedding! The powdery white sand beaches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico create a picturesque spot to become husband and wife or enjoy some fun in the sun during your [LINK] destination wedding [LINK to “How To Plan a Destination Wedding” blog post] weekend.

Fishing enthusiasts will find much to appreciate in Destin, known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” Charter a boat and take your groomsmen out for a bachelor party like none other!

The Panhandle isn’t all beaches, though. Ample state parks provide plenty of hiking and opportunities to get in touch with nature. Stop by Florida Caverns State Park to see the only air-filled caves in Florida that are open to the public.
