Looking out the breezeway toward the Gulf, it is no wonder brides find this place so romantic.
Buffered by a sand dune with mature vegetation, The Pavilion is separated from the beach area by a wooden boardwalk.
The covered area next to the breezeway has picnic tables and keeps wedding guest lists small.
Fifty people would be able to mingle and circulate easily here. (If your list ballooned to 100 guests, that would make things a bit tight.)
Other nice features include a cool playground for small children, outside showers, clean and well-maintained restrooms, and a handicap ramp.
I support all couples taking an hour with their parents to visit this quiet beach area. Walk around the pavilion, feel the breeze off the Gulf, and envision an intimate ceremony with close friends and family.
Things to consider for your Florida beach wedding here
The one small drawback of having your beach wedding here is the absence of electricity. There are also no grills provided.
You will need to discuss with the City of Treasure Island FL (727-547-4575 ext. 237) about what to use to keep food warm.
Actually, this works in your favor for holding down expenses for your
Florida beach wedding.
Cold cuts and finger-food such as fresh cut fruit and vegetables done by family members, can save a huge amount over expensive catering.
Another thing to keep in mind if you plan a wedding at Sunset Beach Pavilion is that the beach itself is "renourished."
This means the finely-granuled white sand on it has eroded away and been replaced with sand dredged from the Gulf. There are millions of tiny shells and shell fragments intermixed with the beach sand.
While this is no big deal to local brides and their families because their feet are used to it, girls from out of town would be wise to walk the area where they will taking their vows.
Cute sandals may be the caveat to bridesmaids and attending female (or elderly) guests.
