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:

Do

  • 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.


Don’t


  • 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. Bringing to mind the luxury and romance of a historical venue, Celebration Hall was inspired by the grand halls of European manor homes. 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

Everything about the wedding seems to center around the Bride.

So What’s a Groom to Do? Poor fellas, seems all the groom has to do is show up and say I do and he’s done, right? Not so, there is actually a lot for the groom to do to prepare for the big day. For both the bride and groom it is essential to know what the budget for the wedding will be.

This is one topic that needs the involvement and input from both of you.

This is big stuff. During this budgeting process the bride and the groom need to agree on how many and whom to invite to the wedding. Once the engagement is set, the groom purchases the engagement ring and usually makes the choice of wedding rings for the couple, this is an individual choice, however. Typically, the groom is responsible for obtaining the marriage license requirements and getting everything ready for making the marriage official. The groom picks his best man and groomsmen.

The tuxedos or suits are usually selected at this point as well as being fitted, etc. The family of the groom is also usually responsible for a rehearsal dinner if that is determined after the rehearsal. The full cost is typically paid by the family of the groom. The groom should also be arranging transportation to and from the wedding, renting limousines, etc., if that is the choice method. The Celebration Hall is the perfect venue for your wedding and or reception.

We look forward to helping you celebrate this big day of your life. The best way to reach us is via email, with most questions responded to in about a day. Feel free to give us a call as well! Email: thecelebrationhall@gmail.com Phone: 850-499-2652

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.
