Destin Florida Weddings | Up Close & Personal Touches on the SOLARIS Yacht
Our wedding planners work with couples of all budget levels to create a Destin Florida wedding as unique as they are. Luckily, having a wedding on the SOLARIS yacht already makes the wedding and experience stand out from others. Regardless of budgets, there are many other ways to add accents that reflect the couple’s personality.
Signature Cocktails – Whether you and your fiancee share a favorite cocktail or you want to create one, you can work with our full-service bartenders to serve a refreshing concoction to your guests before or during the reception at our mahogany bar. The sky’s the limit from tropical drinks to fine wines and champagnes.
Picture This – Displaying pictures of you and your fiance throughout the years and throughout the progression of your relationship is always a fun, personal touch at a wedding and reception. However, instead of opting for a scrolling slide show, consider framing those pictures and displaying them throughout the yacht, including the centerpieces, bar, cocktail tables and cake table. Then you can take the framed pictures to your new home.
Color, Color, Color – Our wedding planners suggest choosing 2-3 main colors and then 1-2 accent colors for your Destin Florida wedding and reception. Another big trend right now is choosing one main color and using a variety of light to dark variations of that one color. Your color will set the tone for the wedding and will be reflected in everything patterns to decor to flowers.
Center of Attention – The centerpieces will be the focal point and set the tone of your reception. Present an inviting table that reflects your style – anything from formal flower arrangements that match the bouquets to an eclectic mix of pictures, bottles and candlelight.
These are just a few of the many personal touches our wedding planners can make possible for your Destin Florida wedding. Contact them today with any questions you might have.
As newly engaged couples go through the wedding planning process, there is some stress within the ‘engaged bliss’ as numbers are crunched, “to-do” lists grow, deadlines approach and tough decisions have to be made. The mention of a destination wedding would make most grooms’ heads spin with circles of dollar signs but it can be more affordable than you think.
The SOLARIS yacht is ideally situated on the award-winning, all-inclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, located in the nationally-recognized, sugar white beaches and emerald green waters of Destin Florida. Couples and their guests will relax in a Caribbean-esque experience minus the hefty price tag and hours of travel. The Sandestin resort features hundreds of accommodations for all budget levels, property-wide tram transportation, award-winning golf courses, dining, beach, entertainment and shopping options.
Most things that are considered splurges for weddings are included or of minimal cost on the SOLARIS yacht. All of our Destin Florida wedding packages include services from our full-time wedding planners who have years of experience planning weddings with anyone from a bride locally to one across the country. Our wedding planners not only keep you organized and offer creative ideas; they are also your local trusted source that can connect you to affordable outside vendors that are familiar with SOLARIS weddings and take the stress off your big day by coordinating everything on your wedding day.
Engaged couples consider everything from special lighting and ceremony decor to special lounge areas to take the wedding (and budget) to the next level. Everyone wants a special day that all will remember and that is experienced on all SOLARIS weddings in Destin. The 125′ SOLARIS yacht was specifically built with weddings in mind with three decks of indoor and outdoor decks that serve as both a weather-proof ceremony and reception site for up to 150 guests. The open-air sky deck features a bridal platform, specialty lighting and all packages include ceremony decor. Prior to their grand entrance, our brides relax in the serene, private bridal suite with special lighting, large mirrors, restroom and make-up table.
What’s more special for your guests than cruising the local waters? Guests will indulge in chef-prepared, coastal cuisines from fresh Gulf seafood to prime steaks while cruising into the sunset and dancing under the stars to live music.
