    - Hair / make-up salon Destin
    - restaurant ( 20 people)

    Thank you so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      HI Galina, welcome to BDW. Thanks Trisha for the referral.

      Yep we just moved from Destin 4.5 months ago. I miss it dearly! It's a great spot for a wedding. Are you thinking about doing it at a resort along the beach? Or just the public beach there? There are so many resorts along that strip. I personally think the Hilton SanDestin has one of the best set ups for the weddings and they have the beach right there along with gardens and such.

      As for hair Brava Hair STudio in Fort Walton beach (just before the Destin bridge) does a nice job and across the street bella day spa Bella Day Spa That was my salon. Jason was my hair stylist. Love him!

      What type of beach decoration are you looking for? One of my past brides who got married there had the arch way and ordered all her flowers from hawaii. It was very affordable compared to the local shops. I also know Michael from Michael's Flowers he's kinda the go to guy in the area. But I think he hold his shop? Here is his site: http://www.floralsbymichael.com/ His flowers are gorgeous!!!! Umm here's the bride's wedding slideshow it may help you. This was across from the coast guard right before the jetties. I guess inbetween the crab shack/howl at the moon and McGuries/Emerald Grand. It was the perfect spot.

      If you need anything else let me know. I leave for Destin April 16 and I'll be there for 11 days so I can take some pictures of stuff for you if you would like. I don't mind since I'll be in the area anyways.
