Sentimental Keepsakes

Every part of your Wedding has special meaning. From the beautiful flower bouquets adorned with Baby’s Breath to the centerpieces you have handmade. There are sentimental keepsakes that you can find a precious way to preserve. Start with your Wedding Dress.

Layers of beautiful satin and lace, trimmed with delicate features all over. You could store the dress and save for someone else to wear. Or, you could have the dress cut down and have a seamstress make Angel Dresses out of. These precious little baby girl dresses, toddler dresses or other will be a lovely way to preserve your dress and share with others. Give as gifts for special occasions such as Christenings, Baptisms, holiday wear or otherwise.

Wedding flowers can be preserved by drying in silica gel, pressing in between pages of your Bible, or other means. They can then be reused in special floral arrangements, jewelry, centerpieces or other great ideas. You may have leftover candies or other specialty treats. You can turn these into little gift trinkets for parties, take home souvenirs or other memorabilia. You can put candies in gift boxes, bags or wrapping.

Leftover food? How about donating the leftover food to a homeless shelter? You will not only enjoy sharing you will feed hungry people. There is great satisfaction in giving and sharing.

The Celebration Hall is the perfect spot for your Wedding and Reception or other event!

Elegant Touches for Your Wedding Banquet Table

The big day is approaching fast and the planning is soon going to be over! Time to get ready for the best day of your life. The Celebration Hall is ready, willing, and able to help you with the details, caterers, bartenders, etc., for your event. There are so many elegant touches you can add to your wedding. Share this with your caterer for something very tasty and elegant.

Champagne Soaked Strawberries

Two very popular items combined make for a double treat that is not only attractive but tasty and unique. These lovely bites can be decorated to match your wedding color theme as well as provide a little “punch” from the champagne. They look beautiful before and after the completion of the decorating. For one jar you will need: 1 bottle of champagne 1 pkg. strawberries *washed and patted dry 1 canning jar 1 bag of white chocolate melting chips Sugar sprinkles (color to match your wedding colors) Fill the canning jar with strawberries and champagne. Allow to soak overnight at least but no more than 2 -3 days. *Note, for the purpose of decoration only a couple of jars of the strawberries in champagne have a very unique appearance and will add to your decorating.

Dipped Strawberries

Start by draining the champagne off of the strawberries, pat dry with a towel. Melt chocolate in microwave or small pan. Dip strawberries in the white chocolate for one layer, let the chocolate set for about 45 seconds or so and then dip in the sugar sprinkles (in your choice of color). These are so beautiful and tasty but do not hold up for a long period of time so do not make ahead of time more than just a couple of days.

Special Moments and Wedding Music

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. There are so many decisions to make like choosing to have your wedding at The Celebration Hall! This will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. But there are many more decisions including choosing your music!

There will be the traditional choices such as the Wedding March, the classical piece played when the bride comes down the aisle, before the wedding and after. Another popular choice is Pachabel’s Canon, Here Comes the Bride (processional), and there are non traditional choices as well. How about hiring someone to play the harp at your wedding? The harp has a distinctive sound which makes any occasion more special. The ukelele is another instrument you might consider hiring someone to play.

There are some very unique sounds from both of these instruments that can make your wedding music even more special. Bagpipes can add a special flair to your wedding day. Bagpipes music is something you might consider particularly if either of the bride or groom is Scottish or Irish. Celtic music is another great choice.

We Will Help You With Your Many Decisions

After the wedding there will be even more special musical choices to make. Often there is the father and daughter dance that gives the father of the bride a special dance with his daughter. This is a traditional dance presenting a good way to officially celebrate the daughter leaving home. A song such as “Butterfly Kisses” makes for a special dance.

The Celebration Hall is happy to help you have the best day of your life celebrating your wedding here. Our staff is experienced and can answer questions and assist you in making the many decisions you will have. Give us a call, discuss your plans with us and let us help you.

Weddings Are A Big Deal

This comes as a shock to nobody. At all. Like all big days you’d like yours to be magical. You want it to stand out. You want it to be remembered and you want everyone to have fun. With that said there are a plethora of ways for you to make your wedding memorable. There are special touches you can add to make yours unique. Everyone cherishes the special touches, especially if it’s specialized memorabilia or keepsakes that they can take home.

Some of our favorites included:
Wedding Website – A wedding is a carefully choreographed machine that requires communication and collaboration. If one detail gets changed it can be a nightmare to try and inform everyone of what’s going on. This is a great way to add your personality to your wedding while also keeping everybody in the loop of what’s going on. Also great to add pictures.

Postcards – These can be very unique and can be customized quite easily. You can add pictures of you and your sweetheart to your “Save The Date” card along with the date and a special note. Everyone loves these, especially with how easy they are to save in scrapbooks and albums.

Stationery – You can go absolutely nuts here. You can theme out everything from menus, programs, seating charts, thank you cards, invitations, place cards, etc. The level of creativity you can add here is mind-blowing.

Keep it all in one theme or personalize each part to your liking. The choice is up to you. These are just a few ideas based on what we’ve seen here at The Celebration Hall. We’re located about a mile away from the most beautiful beaches you’ve seen in Santa Rosa Beach.

We can host your entire ceremony and/or reception on the beaches or at our location. We are also located near 30A Suites which is often used by the honeymooning couples or guests of the wedding! This makes everything convenient and close by making it easier to focus on your big day.
