On a recent visit to South Padre Island across from Port Isabel, Texas, I had lodging in a condo with an ocean front view at the resort. This is the second time I have stayed there and both times, a wedding was held along the beach and the reception was held in a special area of the resort.

As I viewed the wedding party walk from the resort, passing by the swimming and dining areas, eac of the brides wore a traditional wedding gown and the groom did not wear a suit. All the wedding party is barefoot, with the bridesmaids in matching cocktail dresses and the groomsmen in casual attire.
Just out of curiousity, I did a brief search and found there is an online site that appears to have many resources listed for anyone considering getting married by the Gulf of Mexico. I do not have any affiliation with them, but if anyone is interested, view http://southpadreweddings.com/
If you are thinking of going to the Island to plan your wedding or just to get away, fans of fireworks will be able to view a fireworks display on the Bay every Friday at 9:15 pm, from May 24th – August 31st.
Don’t forget the sunscreen for your trip!
