2013 Most Popular Destin Beach Wedding Packages

0R2B0004 (2)

Hello all,

Serenity package has been one of our most popular packages for the last few years. This Destin and Jacksonville beach wedding package has everything you will need for your Destin or Panama City  beach wedding ceremony. It is elegant and chic.  But in 2013 we created Legacy Package and it quickly has been taking a spot light away from serenity package. The new curtain style arbor, tall shepherd hooks and vases filled with pure white hydrangeas with turoise Emerald Coast waters in the background create pure perfection. Turquoise, beige and coral dominated the beach color palette choices for 2013.

Here are the most popular Jacksonville beach wedding, Destin and Panama City Beach Wedding packages and colors:

What is Your Beach Wedding Style: Modern

destin beach wedding packages

Is your style modern? Classic? Helpless romantic? Or Extreme glam? Don’t follow anybodies friendly suggestions or opinions. Your future hubby fell in love with you and your style for a reason. That and well because you are simply awesome! So, just because you are having a wedding on the beach it doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style.

Modern Beach Wedding 

Modernism usually tends to more definite shapes, such as squares, circles, or triangles.  Dress: pick design with clean and straight lines.  When picking out your jewelry try and find some bright white square bangles or even some cubist earrings.  Fun necklace is a must. Looking for the perfect shoes?  Find some shiny leather ones or Toms!  For your reception, try carrying around a cute leather or satin clutch.

Guys: swap your white tux shirt for something more colorful. Go with bold colors and add a bow tie or a slick tie. Instead of traditional  flower boutonniere try something more fun and unique.  Its a perfect way to add personal and unique touch to your wedding.

Bridezilla is an Understatement

One of my friends forwarded me this article and first it made me laugh. Later I wasn’t sure if this girl was for real. Yes, it is her wedding and she is obviously overly organized, but come on girl! Act like a lady!  Here is her letter. Enjoy and let me know what you think:

To m lovely Bridesmaid: [Names removed to protect the brideslaves]

As you all know I picked 10 wonderful ladies to stand by my side, share and make happen my special day to Jake. Each of you individually have a reason and a special place in my heart of why I picked you to be a bridesmaid. We have set our date for Saturday, August 31, 2013 in Vail, Colorado. That seems far away but it really isn’t, the earlier the planning the better. You may have already knew that my wonderful sister L— will be the Maid of Honor, she’s in charge under me. Also my lovely mom will be a big help as well. L— has a big role in throwing me a bridal shower and bachelorette party, of course all of you guys do but at the end of the day shes the go to person and makes it happen.

You all have a big roll in this wedding, so before we continue I’m going to be setting some ground rules and its very important you read and think about everything through before you accept this honor to be a bridesmaid. If you guys email anything I would also like you to put L— in the CC. Not all the bridesmaid need to be CC’d unless its coming from me or L—, if it something everyone needs to see then well do it. We set the date to August 31, 2013 if that’s a problem we need to know NOW. Also by the end of the week we will be setting dates for the engagement party, bridal show and bachelorette party.

Our wedding party is really the most important people at the wedding besides my self and Jake so we want every single one of our bridesmaid and grooms at our parties, I have 10 not 8 where two couldn’t make it so if you already know you cant make one of the parties then we have to find someone else, not to be harsh in the slightest it would sadden me and of course you’ll still be invited to our wedding, engagement ect. But it’s different if your not in the wedding party and couldn’t make it. We’ll give everyone well advance dates for the parties and it will always fall on a weekend. The wedding as I stated will be in Vail the engagement party will either be in NY or CT and the bachelorette party will be in Vegas, cliche yeaa but I’ve never been.

A few girls live out of town so if there is going to be a problem with coming to either one then I need to know now because after this week I don’t want to be surprised. I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your going away in January I don’t care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone. Also if money is tight and you cant afford to contribute to say the bachelorette party or wont be able to afford a dress etc then L— and Myself don’t have time to deal with that, I’m sorry. This includes flights as well, everyone knows the states where the parties are going to be held so if you wont be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I cant have you as a bridesmaid. Obviously we’ll get the best deals and were not gonna books flights for $1000 and shit that’s why were doing this in advance, that goes for bridesmaids dresses as well everything will be affordable but if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding.

If your out of state though don’t think you have to fly in for all fittings, that we will work with you, find stores in your town, get don’t have to worry about that. Also if you accept this honor another thing is that you need to be available, I’m not going to harass you with wedding stuff every hour of everyday but if its something important and it takes you a week even 2-3 days to get back to me seeeee ya! I don’t have time to wait around for responses, everyone has their phone on them, it shouldn’t take you more than a day to get back to me, even if your out of the country, check your email!

Furthermore, Ever since I could remember I have dreamed about this day all my life. I want to share it with the people that are most important to me. You only get one time to plan your dream wedding and I couldn’t pick a more amazing group of girls to make that dream come true! So please, what’s stated above think about it all and by Wednesday I need to know if everyone is 100% in, and what I have asked about sending me dates if your gonna be away between Feb-Aug ill need that on Wednesday. If you don’t think you’ll be able to attend one party but can make the rest of them I’m sorry but I’ll have to take you out as a bridesmaid and put you as a guest. If you want to get back to me before Wednesday, that’s fine. Really think about everything I’ve said. This is really going to be the most epic wedding ever so I hope you girls can share this special day with us!

Remember wedding is one of the most special days of your life, but it is not worth loosing your friends over.

Wishing you a fabulous day today,

Real Celebrity Weddings: Matthew McConaughey

God knows I am addicted to celebrity gossip and mindless TV :)  So maybe its time to  include a bit of that on our blog. We even have Celebrity Weddings category now :)

If it’s one couple in Hollywood I LOVE, it is Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves.  They are so perfectly gorgeous together!

Their ceremony took place at their home in Texas.  They even provided their guests with lodging by having their guests “camp out” in tents for the whole weekend.  How fun and unique is that idea?! or not? Not sure how I feel about camping :)

Matthew, looking handsome as ever, wore a Dolce and Gabana tuxedo while his beautiful Brazilian bride wore a handmade traditional Brazilian dress.

Their menu was cooked by the famous Guy Fieri who cooked up some traditional southern food such as crawfish and fried okra.

To make things personal, their two kids were part of the ceremony acting as the ring bearer and flower girl (how sweet, right?!).

I just can’t get over how beautiful this couple is, and I am totally jealous of Camila’s dress!!!!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are Married!

The couple finally tied the knot! They made it official at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia, Italy. Such a beautiful place to say “I do!”

And did you happen to see what Jessica wore down the aisle? STUNNING!  She was lucky enough to wear a pastel pink Giambattista Valli gown! And her veil was custom made by the designer including some heirloom pearls from her family!  I simply love her dress though.  The floral motif and cute and romantic ruffles are perfect for a wedding.

My favorite detail about their wedding?  Justin Timberlake wrote a song just for the event and sang it to Jessica after vows were exchanged!  AH!!!! To die for!  How romantic would it be for the love of your life to write a song just for you AND sing it to you?!  My heart melts…
