1. Location, Location, Location!
Choosing your wedding’s location is the most important step. You can’t set a date or set the tone of your catering, invitations, or attire without it! Destin is full of beautiful beaches, but few areas offer the exclusivity and convenience of the venues at the Henderson Park Inn. The Inn can accommodate all your guests, your decorations, and your reception, making for an all-inclusive location. Visit our Destin Beach Wedding Packages page to decide which of our venues is right for you.
2. The Date & Time
When it comes to sending out invitations, booking a caterer, or even deciding on a dress, the date is the next item on your to-do list. If you want tulips in your bouquet, then you are probably looking at a late winter wedding. If you want the best pictures imaginable, then spring might your best bet. Florida is beautiful in just about every season, so you can have an incredible wedding on virtually any day of the year.
3. The Wedding Night
Once you have a location and a date, it is important to consider where you will spend your first night as a married couple. After the celebration, you are likely to be tired and will want to be pampered. When you choose to have your wedding at the Henderson Park Inn, you can transition from your wedding party to your private suite within seconds. Nothing beats waking up the next day to gorgeous views of the Emerald Coast!
4. Your Bridal Party
Every couple needs to make sure their nearest and dearest friends and family will be there to support them on their big day. Ask your bridal party as soon as you know when and where the wedding will be, so they can plan accordingly. A beach wedding in Destin is an event they won’t want to miss!
Your guests will know what kind of meal to expect based on the time of your wedding. If you have chosen a Saturday afternoon for your wedding, then you will want to request a light lunch. If you are thinking about a Sunday morning wedding, then a brunch is best. However, if you are planning sunset nuptials, then it’s time to settle on dinner choices. Our wedding planners are always available to suggest the best area caterers.
