Although we don’t plan wedding activities, we work with numerous Anna Maria wedding vendors and can provide recommendations for caterers, bakeries, photographers, florists, etc and if you book all 11 cottages at Anna Maria Beach Cottages you can host your rehearsal dinner, family party, reception, etc on the property. We are ideally set up for small group gatherings.
