We strive to make every wedding as special as the next but the true testament is from our happy brides! Below are some reviews from TheKnot.com where brides have taken the time to review us.

 

“From start to finish, they were there to help!” The King and Prince was really there every step of the way to make sure that my day went as I wanted. It is a beautiful location and their priced fairly. I loved the flexibility and kindness of the staff. They helped me enjoy the wedding of my dreams. -Clara S.

“Perfection.” I am so happy we chose the King & Price, our wedding coordinator Scarlett was phenomenal, the place was beyond amazing and the cost was fair. Great value and perfect place. -Franny

“Wedding of my dreams!” The King and Prince Beach Resort is the perfect location for a fairytale wedding! The staff is amazing and will make your wildest dreams come true! I am from Portland, OR, so obviously, this was a destination wedding. The staff made it so simple to plan, and set up tastings and tours the one weekend I had available without any hesitation. The wedding weekend was perfect! I came in on a Thursday and only had to have one small 15 minute meeting to square away the final details! I am so blessed to have had the perfect wedding! If you want the perfect beach wedding, I fully recommend The King and Prince Beach Resort!  -Janell G

2015 Wedding Dress Trend: Low Cut Backs

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

This year, low cut backs are making a comeback on wedding dresses. While this trend may not be for the faint of heart, we know that those who do wear one of these dresses will be absolutely stunning on their wedding day.

This swan inspired body by designer Galia Lahav has a dramatic silhouette with layers of tulle. On the back, French lace dotted with pearls completes the delicate and gorgeous look.

5 Wedding Tips That People Often Forget

Sometimes it seems like the moment you say “yes” everyone starts throwing questions and tips at you and it never seems to stop! Planning a wedding can be both memorable and stressful and there are a million things that you need to remember to do. Here is our list of the top 5 things many brides forget to do when planning their wedding.

5. Set up a wedding website- It may sound cheesy, but if you set up a simple (and easy to make) wedding site, you can direct people there if they have questions about your registry, need directions to the church, etc. It really can save your sanity and it’s such a simple solution!

4. Reserve a block or rooms at a hotel for your guests- Even if most of your guests are local, it is always a good idea to set up a block of rooms at more than one hotel. If you are having your reception at a resort, be sure to set up a block of rooms there as well so your guests have the option to take the elevator home. Usually, hotels will not charge you to set aside a few rooms for your guests which means there is no extra cost to you for this convenience.

3. Designate someone to be responsible for your “belongings” the day of your wedding- Believe us when we say that you will have a million different things on your mind on your wedding day. Make sure to designate the maid of honor or another friend to look after your things. She can keep your cell phone, lipstick and anything else you may need safe and close by for when you need it….without you having to carry it around or worry about it.

2. Break in your wedding shoes- There is nothing worse than wearing brand new shoes for 5+ hours straight! Break your shoes in by wearing them around the house during the last few weeks before your wedding. Your feet will thank us later.

1. Be present on your wedding day- With so much going on during your wedding day, it is so easy for everything to become a blur. This is your “once in a lifetime” wedding! Don’t let this day pass you by without you remembering most of it due to stress. Remember to take a little time for you and later on with your husband as well. Remember to be in the moment and enjoy every moment of this special day. There will be plenty of photographs but those wonderful memories last so much longer.

Color Trends For Your Spring 2015 Wedding

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Choosing colors for your wedding will help bring out your personality for your special day, but deciding which colors to use can be a headache because there are SO many options! Our wedding experts have chosen their top picks for spring 2015 wedding colors!

Aquamarine – We think this color would look great for a beach wedding. Complimenting the colors of the sand, it is a flattering color on most skin tones.

Tangerine – Add a pop of color to your bouquet with bright flowers! Adding a few bright colors into the mix will make the bouquet uniquely you!

Purple –  A timeless, classic, and we think a rather “royal” color; there are so many different ways to use purple in your wedding. We love the idea of different shades/flowers on the table at the reception combined with purple napkins to tie it all together.

No matter which colors you choose, we know your wedding will be one of the most beautiful days in your life! For more information about planning your wedding, visit our website.

Fun Ways To Add A Touch of Georgia To Your Wedding

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Your wedding day is a time to celebrate you and your spouse but also to share with family and friends the things that mean the most to you. Many couples use their ceremony or reception to show their personality. Here are a few suggestions to show off your peach state pride on your big day!

We love this idea of incorporating fresh fruit for your guests to take home. What better way to show your peach state pride than with a peach?

 You can’t say “Georgia” without thinking about Coke! Give your guests a taste of the south with old fashioned glass coke bottles.

Send your guests home with a “Georgia on my mind” koozie.

For a unique (and beautiful) bouquet, add raw cotton which is also one of Georgia’s top crops!

Instead of a traditional guestbook, have your guests sign a Georgia “guestbook” that you can display in your home.
