Start Your Wedding Planning

The ring is on and it’s time to start planning your big day! It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the details that go into a wedding. From cakes to your dress, decor, venues and more, there are many decisions to make. Follow our tips to start your wedding planning process off on the right foot and prepare for a day to remember.

Step one – breathe! You can relax remembering that your big day is ultimately about the love you and your partner share. Lean on friends, family and your wedding coordinator to help you through all of the details. It’s a great idea to browse the web and ask friends about their weddings to get a feel for what worked for them and what to avoid.

Destin Bay House ViewOne of the first steps in the planning process is selecting a date and a venue. It’s smart to book the venue 9 months to a year out so there’s plenty of time to confirm and finalize all the special details. Also, keep in mind that some popular venues will book out well in advance. Here at the Bay House™, our waterfront event venue in Destin, weddings are our specialty. Surround yourself with loved ones and walk down the aisle with a stunning backdrop. Once you decide on a venue, a great second step is to determine which wedding vendors you are interested in. Schedule short meetings to check out their work, taste potential dishes and more. At the Bay House™, we have¬†preferred vendors¬†who consistently make the magic happen.

It’s likely that many of your guests need accommodations during your wedding. Even if you hold your wedding locally, it can be fun for guests to make a special weekend out of it with an overnight stay on a unique property. Just across from the Bay House™, the Cottages by the Bay offer charming accommodations for up to 44 guests. When you book the Retreat, your guests can enjoy a private pool, event lawn, Bay access and more.

Remember to take wedding planning at your own pace. Everyone is different and there is no wrong way to make your decisions. As long as you and your partner are happy and plan for a wonderful time, expect the day to be a success. To plan your wedding in Destin, contact us today!
