Wedding planning is easy when your big day is at Naples Grande Beach Resort. From lodging and transportation to ceremony venues and reception set-up, it’s all onsite. Once you check off these must-have items from your list, you’re on the way to a smooth wedding day.

Decide on a Wedding Venue

With eight distinct wedding venues, Naples Grande Beach Resort offers numerous options for wedding ceremonies and receptions of all sizes. Choose one of the stately ballrooms for a large, formal event. The largest of the venues, the Royal Palm Ballroom boasts more than 14,000 square feet, which can be divided into separate areas for the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner reception, providing a seamless experience for wedding guests. Hoping for an outdoor wedding? Say your “I do’s” on the lushly landscaped golf course or opt for a wedding on the resort’s beach. Once you have your wedding venue picked out, you can start planning the rest of your details.

Choose Your Wedding Menu or Catering Services

Across all cultures, food is an important component of social gatherings and milestone celebrations. Welcome guests to your reception with butler passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour, as well as wine, beer or specialty cocktails mixed with top-shelf spirits. For your wedding menu, choose from an array of gourmet options, such as classic filet mignon, herb-crusted seabass or poached lobster served with caviar pearls. The culinary team at Naples Grande Beach Resort can also provide customized menus for additional personalization, and custom catering services are also available for off-site wedding venues.

Select Your Wedding Flowers and Décor

Transform your wedding venue into the customized event of your dreams with the help of GlobalWorks Events & Destination Management, the in-house event planning team of Naples Grande. The expert team can coordinate all the details, such as specialty linens, table décor, floral arrangements and furniture rentals.

Plan on A/V and Music Needs

From first dances to all-out dance parties, your music will set the scene for your storybook wedding moments. Wedding packages include staging and a dance floor, and GlobalWorks can help plan the rest, whether you’re dreaming of brass bands, tribute singers or contemporary DJs.

Coordinate Transportation to and From Your Wedding Reception

When you choose an on-site venue for your wedding ceremony and reception, moving guests from one space to another is easy. For off-site ceremony venues, such as church weddings and religious services, rely on GlobalWorks and industry partner Dolphin Transportation for off-site transfers.
