With amazing weather year-round, Marco Island is a great wedding location for locals and destination weddings alike, with loads of accommodation options and specials for rooms booked in blocks. Couples can sip mimosas in the sunshine as they prepare and get dressed, say “I do” in the sand while the ocean waves lap gently at the shore behind them, and party the night away at the reception for the happiest day of their lives.
