Sandestin Hilton, anyone???
Posted 20 November 2009 - 11:23 AM
We changed the location for our destination wedding (again )... and now we're seriously considering having it at the Sandestin Hilton. We're planning on 20-25 people and very limited budget...
I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who had their wedding there or attended one... As well as suggestions on vendors and services...
I really loved the ceremony photos they have on the website and the ceremony package that seems to include everything, but the reception prices seem a little too much for us...
we're open to any suggestions and would really really appreciate any help

We also keep changing our date. I think we'll set it for some time in September 2010. Just hope the weather will be nice.
I was looking at Hilton, since they have an all-inclusive ceremony package, which sounds very convenient considering we're coming from Chicago and know nothing about the area or the vendors...
it would be nice to hear from anyone who's been there at an event or had their wedding there...
as for the reception, we're still looking for a place. Hilton wants $135/person, and it's a little too much for us... any suggestions?

I am from the Gulf Coast Area... Are you set on Destin?... since you are having a smaller wedding party, you might want to look into having it on Pensacola Beach, FL, it is just a beautiful as Destin, but is a much smaller community... just a 1 1/2 from Destin, The Hilton, Pensacola Beach is really nice and could accommodate the smaller ceremony/reception with no problems. Plus the area has plenty of hotels in many price ranges, the airport is a short 20-25 minute drive, which is much closer than Panama City or Okaloosa Regional. The area is smaller, with less restaurants, but has a few really great places on the beach, all within walking distance to the Hilton!! Just a thought for you. Happy Planning!!

Good luck and if you have any further questions about our area just send me a note.

I do agree that HIlton might be a little too big and too expensive. But considering the diversity of our guests, we're jsut not sure that a big house would be a good idea.
I'm wondering if we could hire a co for ceremony (small and simple, any suggestions?) and then go to a nice place for dinner...
how does it sound?

We've considered renting a house, but it doesn't sound too good for us.
I'm looking for a nice company/place to have the reception on the beach and a restaurant (not too far from the beach) for the reception. Considering we're only going to have about 20 people, I thought we dont' really need a big banquet hall or anything like that...
Can you suggest any nice places?
