Are you planning a “Will you marry me?” in 2023? You’re not alone. The coming year is poised to represent a record comeback for the exchanging of vows. An estimated 2.5 million ceremonies are already scheduled nationwide — the largest number in nearly 40 years! So if you’ve got an “I do” on the horizon, then you’ll want to consider reserving your big day with us at TradeWinds. Read on to discover why we’re the home of the best St. Petersburg wedding venues, catering, and more.
Location, Location, Location
Your wedding is your big day — and special weddings deserve landmark settings. That’s why our oceanfront enclave is the choice of so many happy couples when it comes to beginning their happily ever after. Whether you’re a Florida resident or planning a decadent destination wedding, our grand gulfside resorts are ready to offer you a stunning spot to tie the knot. Imagine sharing your first wedded kiss with your toes in the sand, waves lapping against the shore, and the sun setting over the water behind you, and you’re getting there.
A Variety of Venues
Weddings take a variety of forms. Having an intimate, family-only gathering? A grand, ballroom-sized fantasy? Or an outdoor affair where the sea breezes gently ruffle the bouquet? No matter what your dream, TradeWinds has the ideal space. Stunning outdoor terraces overlooking the water? Check. Elegant ballrooms with crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows? Absolutely. Secluded, island-style hideaways? We’ve got you covered. Even better, each of these spaces is completely customizable to your unique specifications.
The Perfect Packages
Wedding planning can be a stressful endeavor. Cousin Eddie can’t sit anywhere near Aunt Marge for the reception, the florist may not have the colors you want, and — oh no — nobody called a caterer! That’s why TradeWinds offers all-in-one, stress-free, and extremely affordable packages where every detail is taken care of. Our event planning team has cumulative decades of experience when it comes to listening to your “dream wedding” vision, and then making it happen — regardless of your personal style.
As the area’s premier resort, TradeWinds knows how to help make wedding dreams real better than anyone. So when the “I do”s are done and it’s time to bring out the cake and entertainment, that’s when we really kick up our heels. Since we’re home to the best restaurants in St. Pete Beach, your always-on-point catering options will offer equal parts endless variety and peerless quality. We have years-long relationships with the best vendors in the area, florists, DJs, and even live show bands are always happy to make themselves available.
And of course, we offer flexible and competitive room packages for far-afield friends and loved ones headed in to be a part of it all. We even have fantastic breakout spaces perfect for wedding activities like rehearsal dinners, dress fittings, cake tastings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, morning-after brunches and much more.
