Many couples are choosing less traditional full course meals for their weddings now. There are some really great trends this year. One of the new popular ideas we are seeing on food tables this year are Cronuts, a very tasty small donut served with a variety of tasty dips to dip them in. Candy tables are also popular with varieties of mints, chocolates, used in decorative and edible ways. Pretzel buns are gaining popularity, as well as a variety of sliders. Trends including more gourmet items such as cheese trays with chocolate dipped strawberries, pineapple and chunks of apple or pear to compliment the chocolate are used. Macaroni and cheese prepared with additions such as lobster or crab are popular choices as well. These unique twists on favorites are sure to please your guests. Finger sandwiches are still popular choices using soft small buns served with light chicken salad with white grapes and pecans are delicate and tasty choices.

At Celebration Hall our beach weddings are perfect for the couple looking for a relaxed, yet memorable affair, that won’t cost a fortune to dazzle the senses.

Partially because of our venue’s vibrant coastal setting full of luscious tropical foliage, fragrant blooms of jasmine, rose, honeysuckle, lavender, lily of the valley, hibiscus, magnolia, and orange blossoms, to name a few. Our breathtaking, ultra white sand dunes, made up of countless sparkling quartz crystals that have been polished to soft, brilliant perfection over time, is truly a symbolic atmosphere in which to give yourself over in holy matrimony. Aside from the spectacular natural beauty of a beach wedding, there are also many great ways to add unique style and fun touches to the planning of your ceremony and reception which incorporate the gorgeous coastal paradise where you have chosen to wed.

One of the most important parts of any event is the food, and a great beach wedding is no exception. Fear not!

The professional planners at Celebration Hall are full of creative ideas that will inspire you and help guide you through to the realization of your dream event.
  • Popsicles! What could be a more perfect item to serve at the beach? These are ideal for a mini push cart, with a colorful umbrella and candy striped server, waiting to greet your guests upon their arrival to your seaside ceremony to beat the heat while they wait for the bride, or perhaps offered as a treat just after the service, for guests to enjoy while watching the sun go down. Handcrafted Gourmet Popsicles-The possibilities are endless! Consider doing a “themed” Popsicle in a special flavor. Or color-coordinate your Popsicle to match the wedding. You could even “spike the pops” and make them “adult” pops. What fun!
  • Hand pass hors d’oeuvres on trays lined with banana leaves
  • Set an crudite table display of tropical fruits and cheese for appetizers and let the guests help themselves
  • For a casual wedding, picnic fare hors d’oeuvres can be fun; mini hot dogs, mini cheeseburgers(in paradise) Men go nuts over beef sliders! They can be passed as hors d’oeuvres even at the fanciest affairs on the beach
  • Do a Slider Station- You can have beef, chicken and even vegetarian sliders with all the fixings. It could be an action station where a Chef/Cook is actually grilling the burgers on a grill or hibachi and the guests can garnish their own sliders – that is cool!
  • Crepe Spinner – Have a station with a Chef making creative crepes with an assortment of flavorful fillings. Crepes do not have to be for dessert of breakfast or brunch – they can be savory as well – add seafood, jerked chicken for a Caribbean flair, lots of fun for your guests.
  • Sushi display or sushi action station is perfect for beach food. Have a sushi chef in action making sushi to order. Include some tropical selections incorporating tropical fruits.
  • Sesame-crusted tuna medallions on Boniato crisps with sweet chili cilantro-lime dipping sauce
  • Thai barbeque shrimp crescents on malanga chips served in paper cones in your color scheme
  • Lobster medallions on plantain chips with tarragon chimichurri sauce
  • Citrus-grilled vegetable skewers with roasted garlic aioli for the vegetarians and the health-minded
  • Shot glasses passed and filled with shrimp, ceviche or even oyster shooters – awesome beach theme food ideas! (use plastic on the beach)
  • Soup shots, on the beach it could be cold, choose gazpacho or maybe even a watermelon gazpacho – these can be served in personalized shot glasses, (great beach wedding favor)
  • Sweet plantain and Applewood smoked bacon rumakis with curried honey
  • Liquor infused tiny sorbet cones to cool off your guests- this could be for an intermezzo or serve them at the bar
  • Floribbean conch fritters with spicy mango ketchup
  • Grilled scallop and shrimp kabobs on bamboo skewers
  • Jerked chicken skewers with mango salsa passed on trays surrounding a mini hibachi or on a Pineapple tree.
  • Coconut shrimp with horseradish marmalade
  • Set the tables with assorted tapas plates on each table for guests as they arrive or set tapas tables for guests during cocktail hour
  • Pass tasting spoons, fun and not messy- plastic disposable spoons are available
  • Crabcakes, an all-time favorite in these parts made with local blue crabs- serve it with spicy remoulade

Voted as having The Most Beautiful Beaches in the continental United States by Yahoo Travel, there are few places so ideal for a spectacular wedding than the stunningly gorgeous beaches of the Emerald Coast.

With renowned polished quartz crystal sand that washes down from the Appalachian mountains, so unbelievably soft and white that it resembles pure sugar in both feel and appearance. Beach weddings are an especially wonderful way to celebrate your lifelong commitment for many reasons, but at Celebration Hall, the premier events venue in south Walton County specializing in coastal extravaganzas. We not only love the fact that they are more relaxed affairs that don’t require loads of cash to pull off because of the already beautiful setting that needs little decor to make it grand, but also because there are so many fun and exciting activities that unique to the Emerald Coast.

If you are planning a fall wedding, Celebration Hall’s personal favorite because of the cooler weather, then you will be delighted to know that autumn on the Emerald Coast is a time for festivals and fairs, including the famous Mullet Festival in mid-October.

In early October, Destin Florida plays host to our annual Destin Seafood Festival.

This is so much more than a festival to us – It is a tribute to the rich history of ‘The Luckiest Fishing Village’ on earth and the fishing community that calls it home. The Seafood Festival takes place along the beautiful Destin Harbor and the Harbor Boardwalk, with the lively action of the Destin Fishing Rodeo right in the heart of it all. There is always lots of excitement along the docks as the fishing vessels come to port with their catches to be weighed and photographed, and just a few steps away, your guests will be able to indulge their cravings for locally caught, gulf seafood(a day a the beach will bring them out!) In the freshest possible way. This three day festival is full of arts, crafts, music, food, entertainment, fireworks, and excitement for all! It is perfect for your out of town guests, showcasing the best that Destin has to offer, including the largest Fishing Fleet in the nation! There are also gourmet restaurants, unique bars and our breath taking sunsets, guests are able to stroll along the Harbor Board Walk, from one end to the other, with over a mile of Festival right on the water!

Your guests will love that you’ve combined your special day with a unforgettable vacation on the Gulf, surrounded by the most spectacular beaches and coastal landscape!
