If a tropical setting and beautiful views top your destination wedding wishlist, set your sights on Fort Myers' islands, beaches and neighborhoods. Located on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, the white-sand beaches, lush islands and unobstructed sunsets make for an unbeatable backdrop for your ceremony and reception (not to mention the convenience for you and your guests since it's in the US!). Whether you're having a microwedding or planning a bigger celebration, the "City of Palms" and surrounding communities have a variety of indoor and outdoor venues—from beachfront locales and romantic gardens to renowned restaurants and historic buildings—to suit every type of event.
