The white beaches and turquoise waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast offer the ideal locale for your wedding or engagement party, sporting the perfect backdrop for creating memories to last a lifetime. Even though the beaches are similar to those in Florida, the more affordable pricing allows for more room for extras to make the beginning of this new chapter of your life all the more special! Additionally, the weather in early spring is perfect for an outdoor wedding.
If you want to keep the costs of your party down, there are plenty of public beaches to host your special event. With temperatures ranging from low to high 60s in late February through March, the beach offers the perfect combination of comfortable temperatures and beautiful scenery.
There are plenty of places along the Alabama gulf shore where you can arrange a romantic wedding party or celebrate your engagement with your closest friends and family. A place to consider is Florida Point, just east of Perdido Pass Bridge which promises over 6,000 feet of pristine beach, complete sand dunes and boardwalks to create the perfect setting.
Gulf Shores 2nd Street Public Beach is very similar, but with the added benefit of a covered pavilion in case your party needs to take cover from any spring showers that might pop up. If a party that moves into the hours following the sunset, the Gulf State Park Pavilion Area includes a fireplace to cluster around for warmth on those chilly spring nights, and exchange stories and laughs with your loved ones.
If you'd prefer to stay inside for the after-wedding party, Cotton's Restaurant offers the perfect venue. A former 1950s beach house, the restaurant offers a nautical feel with views of the ocean, and allows the happy couple to choose food options from the menu to cater to their preferences. Gulf Shores is full of beautiful restaurants with beautiful views, and a quick call to any one of them is answered with that infamous southern hospitality you will grow to love.
For the nights leading up to the special event, to the nights after, look no further than our Gulf Shores condos or Orange Beach rentals for your friends and family. This more affordable option provides your loved ones with a real at-home feeling, where you can all be together. With multiple rooms, more space, a kitchen, and easy accessibility, spending time together is not only easier and more intimate, but more enjoyable. Not boxed in by the typical hotel feel, you and your guests can have not only the perfect party or Gulf Shores wedding, but also the perfect stay.
