What’s more luxurious than saying your sacred vows while standing on countless tiny polished quartz crystals? Stay at 30-A Suites for your destination wedding!In fact, the unrivaled beaches of south Walton County, are so visually stunning, that they have been voted in the Top Five Most Beautiful Places to Wed by The Knot magazine for five years in a row.

Your family and friends will thank you for combining your wedding ceremony with a mini beach vacation to such a renowned beach destination, one that won’t require guests to break the bank or spend weeks trying to get a passport to be with you on your big day.
Having a beautiful, memorable wedding on the Emerald Coast is a surefire hit that is guaranteed to make a splash. It may cause a touch of panic, however, with wedding guests who may be trying to decide what to wear to your beachside or outdoor festivities. So here, the wedding professionals at Celebration Hall, the premier full service events venue on the Gulf Coast specializing in amazing beach weddings, have put together a guide to summer wedding attire that you can share with your guests ahead of time:


  • Take your cue from about the level of formality for a summer wedding from what the invitation says. Only an after six, “White Tie” or “Ultra Formal” would require a long gown (and those invites are very rare).
  • Choose pretty florals or yummy colors (pink, yellow, blue) in light fabrics for daytime or outdoor weddings.
  • Remember, you’re at the beach, so have fun with your dress material. Pick light, flowing fabrics that will not wrinkle, but will have movement and style while keeping you cool and comfortable.
  • Dress up more for weddings after 6 PM, but still keep your look summery (sleeveless dresses, strappy sandals, glowing skin). More formal attire should still be able to hold up to heat, humidity or wind, still keeping in mind your location. Those 4 inch stilettos you’ve been dying to wear are probably not the right choice for an outdoor event, after all you’ll just sink into the sand or turf and possibly scuff them up.
  • Keep hairdos under control in hot weather with soft up-dos or pretty hair barrettes.


  • Wear white because it competes with the bride. This is typically a well known tip, but it bears repeating.
  • Wear hosiery, heavy makeup or chunky jewelry in our hot, humid climate or you’ll melt… And not because of that hunky groomsman you’ve had your eye on since you arrived.
  • Dress too sexy — belly showing or lots of cleavage — because it’s not an appropriate occasion to dress like you’re going to a nightclub. Besides, it may come across as tasteless or desperate, but really it’s suppose to be the bride’s big day, so let her have it.

For more fresh ideas for your wedding, stop in to see the professionals at Celebration Hall, located on a beautiful stretch of Scenic Hwy 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.

Our guests will delight when they see our vaulted beamed ceilings, oak doors, and massive wrought iron chandeliers which have been scaled to impress.

We can offer a seated capacity around 150 people inside, with many more with the addition of our lighted lawns and patio area. We also have a state of the art sound system and free parking for your guests. MG_7215

You Take Me The Way I Am

In the words of an inspiring artist, Ingrid Michaelson, “You take me the way I am.” To us, here at The Celebration Hall, this quote represents marriage and commitment to the fullest. If it is one thing we have discovered through joining couples in matrimony is that the most important aspect of a marriage is to fully accept one another for who they truly are. When you can accept someone for all their “faults,” (which are really just things that annoy you!) then you accept them as a whole being and nothing can get in the way of your bond.

When you choose to accept someone, despite their annoying habits or bad past, you choose to fully know and understand that person entirely. There suddenly becomes no secrets and you know the person in and out.

If You Are Lucky Enough To Find This, Keep It

Too many people let the little “faults” get in the way of just truly letting loose and being happy. At the end of the day, what truly matters is not what action that person did to make you upset. Instead, what truly matters is that you lie beside someone who knows you better than you do yourself sometimes.

What matters is that he or she is here or there with you and only you and they desire no one else. What matters is that this person accepts you for every little perfect imperfection because they love you for you and nothing else. When it is time to start planning your big day with the one that takes you the way you are, please, contact us here at The Celebration Hall.

We offer a fabulous hall, beach weddings, and nearby accommodations for our bridal party and guests.

It is not too late to plan the summer wedding of your dreams here at The Celebration Hall in picturesque Santa Rosa Beach!

Summer weddings are very popular but you can still make your wedding as unique as you are! IMG_1963AWe will typically see lots of bright colors at summer weddings.  Imagine tables of pink floral arrangements accented with orange table linens or elegant white.  Baby’s breath, delicate lace, crystal goblets and candles make a beautiful table for your summer wedding.

The warmer temperatures outside give you more options for your wedding.  You can enjoy a jazz trio or harpist or a singer with a ukulele set up outside for a nice summer touch. Outside summer weddings can be done in garden themes or beach themes.

Either work very well here at The Celebration Hall. Our lush landscaped lawns make for the perfect setting where you can make your own beautiful celebration. Add unusual touches to your wedding such as huge sunflower bouquets to be carried by your bridesmaids and flower girl. Sunflowers are festive and their bold colors will capture attention and make lovely photographs. bubbles

For a unique touch after wedding provide bottles of bubbles for guests to play with. Bubbles flowing through the sky make for a festive touch.  You could also have balloons ready to be released in the sky.

The Celebration Hall is the place for summer weddings. Speak with one of our team here for help with planning.
