Ask Nancy

Is it possible to have a wedding and reception both on Lido Beach? If not, what other nearby beaches would be available that would accommodate this request? I am working on a budget.

Best Wishes, Morgan, on your upcoming wedding.

Yes, it is possible to have the ceremony and the reception on Lido Beach. You can have both at one of the resorts on Ben Franklin Drive. Or you can get a permit from Sarasota County Parks & Recreation and have both on the public beach (you may want an wedding planner to take care of all the details).

Have fun!
