The place you exchange rings should be as special as you are. With that in mind, The Don CeSar offers three different types of locations for your nuptials. Choose from a Gulf-front beach, romantic courtyard, or stunning indoor location. We can host a service for just two or a ceremony before hundreds of guests on our expansive beach. Always dreamed of something a bit more formal? Our iconic ballrooms perfectly capture the grandeur and glory of The Don. From beachside casual to black-tie optional, we can create whatever suits your personal style.
After the main event, there are even more options for wedding receptions and dinners. From the charming boardwalk of our Sunset Pavilion to the sumptuousness of the King Charles Ballroom, there really is a location perfect for every couple. Of course, our staff Wedding Specialists will ensure that every detail of the décor rivals the setting — and is done exactly to your liking.
With the Pink Palace as the backdrop, our lovely tropical garden setting atop a staircase overlooking the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico is a beautiful place to exchange vows. Accommodates 25–250 guests.
Sink your toes into the sand with a ceremony set against the pristine blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A beach ceremony is the epitome of casual and simple elegance. Accommodates 25–250 guests.
