olipops:  I would use tripadvisor to find nearby attractions, their reviews are SO helpful!  Sorry I can’t be more helpful, that’s not an area of FL that I’m familiar with.

I love pasagrille beach, it is my favorite beach and spent so many days there as a kid. When are you getting married? As for activites, I do know there is John’s pass in Madeira beach which is not too far away. There is also the St pete pier. Those places may be kid friendly. I wish I could be more help, because I can tell you all the cool spots to drink and party 🙂

Also, I do not think you will be out of place at the Don Cesar in your wedding dress. That hotel is beautiful and really do not think people will look at you weird.

How dressy is your dress? Florida pretty much has its own dress code, which is very very casual. You may feel more comfortable changing into an upscale sundress or similar outfit, leaving your wedding makeup and jewelry on, for your evening activities. Everyone loves a bride so no one is going to side-eye you if you’re out and about in a formal wedding gown, so if you don’t feel like changing, you’ll be fine. That said, even in the winter months, Florida (especially the Tampa/St Pete area) can be oppressively humid. You might have great temperatures and brutal humidity that make a more formal dress stick to you like a wet washcloth. So, if it were me, I’d change to a lightweight cotton type outfit as soon as I could!

as for what to do in the evening, there are loads of charter boats in the area (not sure about the specific beach but Tampa/St Pete greater region is boating heaven). A moonlight cruise might be a fantastic way to end the day.
