What could be better than spending time with your favorite people in the world on a white sand beach? When planning your wedding, nothing is more important than creating a memorable wedding and reception.  There is nowhere better to create this romantic and memorable occasion than at one of Henderson Park Inn’s Destin wedding venues.   We’ve put together some ideas to make your beach wedding even more special!


Exchange Vows with a Unity Sand Ceremony

Nothing is more fitting for a beach wedding than a sand ceremony. The sand ceremony is a symbolic moment during the vow exchange when couples pour sand in their wedding colors into a special keepsake box. The colorfully filled keepsake box instantly becomes a meaningful piece of art to add to their home!


Add a Shoe Valet

Put your shoes to the side before you see the bride! Shoe valets are a great way to keep shoes sand-free and organized at a beach ceremony. Guests can easily store their shoes in the shelves before they stick their toes in the sand. Keep a basket of brushes to the side for everyone to clean off their feet after the “I do’s” are said.


Relax in a Lounge Area

Lounge areas are a huge wedding trend that helps create a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere for that time in between the ceremony and reception. It’s beautiful decor and a chic alternative to beach chairs. Your guests will forget they’re outside when they relax in this cushy area!


Design a Fan Itinerary

Another hot trend for beach weddings is itinerary fans. Literally! Turn your ceremony and reception program into fan itineraries that will keep your guests cool outside and informed of the day’s festivity schedule. Wedding fans can also serve as a favor or souvenir.


Accessorize with Paper Umbrellas

To keep your guests and bridal party shaded from the sun, let them accessorize with protective paper parasols. As a symbol of wealth and prosperity, these colorful umbrellas come in a variety of shapes and designs that will look stylish in photos and become fun wedding favors!
