Personalization is key to ensure that a couple’s personality is reflected in their wedding. Anything and everything can be personalized from the flowers, food, entertainment, lighting and decor. The sky’s the limit for how creative the details can be for your Destin wedding. Here are some of the rising trends for 2018 – 2019 weddings in Destin.

Less Is More for Destin Beach Weddings

One of the biggest benefits of saying “I Do” on the sugar white beaches of Destin Florida is that nature is your stunning backdrop. With the emerald green waters and ever-changing sunset as your wedding background, not much else is needed for decor. Our wedding planners suggest chairs for your guests and an arch with flowers of your choice but more of your wedding budget can be allocated to other things like your reception. Some couples choose an aisle smoother or a PA system so guests can hear their vows, but the good news is that less is more for Destin Beach Weddings.

Non-Traditional Ideas

Food will continue to be the centerpiece of receptions but the options continue to grow. While traditional catering options such as buffets and sit down dinners are still the norm, there is a rise in food stations scattered throughout the reception venue to get guests out of their seats and mingling. You can even do themed food stations such as a kid’s candy bar, a specialty bar drink, a mashed potato bar, fruit/cheese trays, chef’s carving station and more. Some couples are even opting to treat guests to a special creative dessert such as a Chocolate Fountain in lieu of wedding favors.

Also non-traditional wedding venues continue to become popular. Couples typically chose their wedding venue first but are shying away from traditional ballrooms and seeking venues with the ultimate WOW factor, such as the SOLARIS yacht, that offers an unforgettable experience for your guests.

Budding Flowers

Baby’s Breath is making a huge comeback in all wedding flower bouquets, from floral arrangements for the bride and bridal party to the boutonnieres, aisle markers and flower crowns for flower girls. The great news is that it is inexpensive and a beautiful, romantic accent to any flower arrangement or greenery.

Another huge trend is hanging flowers and custom floral chandeliers which offer a gorgeous design and give a more clean look and more space on tables.
