Destin area help needed

Recommended Posts

My fiancee and I are looking into having our wedding in the Destin area. I've been looking for sites to have a beach wedding and places to have a reception online, but I wanted to see if I could get some input from you guys on where we should look. Thanks!

I just found those online. But I have been to Destin and it is ssoo gorgeous. Do you live nearby? If so I would scout out the area and the beaches and find your dream location. I think a perfect setting would be a private beachfront house that you rent for a few nights and have the ceremony on the beach and reception right there at the house.

Hey what a great location. I actually live nearby the Destin beaches along Okaloosa island. Have you been here before? Tourist season is approaching fast so if you’re going to come for a site visit, I would recommend before May. June through September is crazy, I avoid the public beaches and stick to the private ones.

 

Have you looked into the wedding package that the Sheraton offers on Okaloosa island. Friends of ours were married on the beach there and it was amazing! They have such a great set up.

 

Also what about photographers? I know of a local photographer who is priced really reasonably (aprox $450 for the whole day with all digital negatives). I can find out her contact info if you would like. 2 of our close friends used her for their weddings and she did a wonderful job. Then there’s a Destin photographer by the name of Gwyne who is a BDW member too. I would check her out.

 

Let me know if you need any more info. I’d love to help.

Wow! Thanks for all the good advise. We just got engaged about a month ago, so we're just starting out with all of the wedding planing. We live in Gainesville, FL right now, which is about 4 1/2 hours away. We've been to the area before and absolutelyl ove it which is why we chose it as the location for our wedding. I'm going to look into the Sheraton on Okaloosa Island. Having a back-up ceremony and reception location is pretty important to us in case it rains.

Thanks!

hijacked.gif This has nothing to do with Destin advice, but I am actually from Gainesville! Its rare I meet somewhere who even knows where Gainesville is! I always have to mention something about UF, lol.

Ok, good luck & happy planning

I know where Gainesville is Christina cheesy.gif

 

I’m impressed so many people know about Destin. I didn’t know about it until I moved here lol. It’s such a beautiful place to live.
