So I am from Michigan and wanting to get married in the fort myres or surrounding area. The pink shell resort looks amazing..can anyone fill me in on this resort? Are there other nice places around the area? And also when would be the perfect time in Flordia to have an outside wedding/reception? And can you tell me some fun things to do in the area? Is there mini golf, zoos,parks,aquariums? And one other thing I would like to take my small wedding party 25-30 guests on a dinner boat cruise for the reception dinner..any sugestions????? Feel completley lost being so far away.. Any suggestions will help :)

Hi,
I am getting married this May on Ft Myers Beach. My parents live down there and have been a huge help in calming my fears, which sound like the same as yours. : )

Best weather check out this site --> http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g28930-s208/Florida:United-States:Weather.And.When.To.Go.html

So Pink Shell is EXPENSIVE! If you have money, go for it - it is beautiful!! The Holiday Inn was also a little pricey ($2,000.00 just to rent a reception room) and considering the beach is far away, so no 'beach front' rooms.
Now I will say, I have not had my wedding yet, but we are getting married on the beach in front of the Lani Kai and then using their Sabal Palm room for the reception. My parents said the place is a little older and may need some mending - due to the saltwater, but all my guests can afford it and they will have private balconies facing the beach! So far the coordinator there has been SOOO helpful and really helps put me at ease. Call Carolyn Epperson 239-463-3111 or her personal cell 239-895-3304... [email protected]

Things to do...I included this in my invites...
"Fort Myers Beach Pier, Fishing Charters/Boat Rental, Shopping, Golf, Sunset Cruises, Lovers Key State Park, Everglades Tours, Dolphin Encounters, Snorkeling & Scuba Diving, Captiva Cruises, Eco Tours, Manatee World, Express Cruise to Key West, Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Hall, Lovers Key State Park, Bay Beach Golf Club, Germain Arena, Jet Ski/Parasail, Caribbean Gardens Naples Zoo, Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track, Philharmonic Center For The Arts and much more!!

Good Luck! I'll post with feedback once mine is done.
