Virtually Plan Your Wedding From Home – We live in a virtual society, where everything and everyone is “connected” to the web. This makes long-distance wedding planning a breeze. Sandestin offers a wedding website, and wedding blog, which couples can use to choose their venues through gallery photos and wedding video, as well as choosing their menu. Couples can also follow SandestinBride on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for the latest wedding happenings and to stay in the loop on wedding trends and venue details as well.

Mix and Match Is “In” – The wedding party is making a statement.

Sandestin’s Barefoot Princess and Island Clothiers offer just the outfits and accessories to make every wedding one-of-a-kind.
Save the Date – “Save the Dates” are informal invitations that inform your guests of your wedding date, location and are a unique representation of you and your special someone. From photos and magnets, to luggage tags and postcards, these trendy little cards have become the best way to showcase your unique personality, and provide your guests with the information they need to set aside time for your special destination wedding.
Don’t forget to include hotel information for your guests as well. This will allow you and your guests to take advantage of room block discounts, and group rates. When booking with Sandestin, just speak with your Event Manager, and she will give you the details you need to include on your save the date cards.
