Secrets to Planning a Warm, Oceanfront Destination Wedding

Does the cold weather have you dreaming of a warm wedding? We specialize in creating memorable, oceanfront weddings and have some tips for planning your destination wedding:

There’s a formula to planning an oceanfront wedding. It’s basically a three step process:

  1. Select a wedding destination to accommodate the ceremony, reception, and honeymoon.
  2. Hire a wedding planner, who specializes in producing wedding events in the area.
  3. Then fill in the other details (attire, invitations, and travel).

Location generally trumps the top criteria in selecting an oceanfront wedding destination. Note that the further the destination wedding, the more expensive travel will be for guests. For instance, Hawaii, the Virgin Islands and international wedding destinations can be off putting for family and friends, who do not have the wherewithal or a passport. (We are partial to staying stateside – St. Simons Island, anyone?)

At the oceanfront wedding destination, consider hiring a wedding planner to manage the flowers, centerpieces, cake, entertainment, and other local vendors near the wedding destination. (On the day of the event, a wedding planner oversees last minute details, alleviating any last minute fires for you to man.)

Review wedding destinations where the airport and other travel details offer the easiest logistics. The Jacksonville International Airport and Savannah/Hilton Head International are both convenient for guests flying into the area. The drive from either airport to St. Simons Island is less than an hour and a half.

Oceanfront honeymoon suite

A personal view of the Atlantic Coast is always a complimentary amenity from the Governor’s Suite at The King and Prince Resort!

Weddings, planned during off season, generally afford more value and savings. January through March is typically off-peak season at most resorts in the area. Because hotel properties have fewer bookings during this time, planning a wedding allows for less time and expense.

Don’t forget the honeymoon suite!

In addition to finding a location within a 2 hour drive from the airport, consider wedding destinations where there are plenty of stores to shop for last minute bride and groom needs.

The last secret in planning an unforgettable trip for your guests is to opt for one nearby tourist attractions, restaurants, and other amenities to accommodate everyone. Let this be a vacation for them, too!
