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.

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

Beach Wedding on St. Simons Island

The beach can provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding but there are many details you will want to remember before you say “I do” at the ocean’s edge.

Check the tides- Before you set a time for your wedding, check a local tide chart to make sure there will be enough sand for you to stand on during the ceremony. In places like St. Simons Island, the tide can completely cover the beach during high tide which would make a beach wedding impossible at certain times of the day.

Do you need a permit?- Some towns require you to have a permit to get married on the beach. Some require you to reserve a specific space on the beach and in some areas, you can just walk right out and get married! Make sure you do your research and find out if you need a permit or to reserve a specific part of the beach. The last thing you want is the local authorities crashing your beach wedding!

Provide sunscreen for your guests- You may think that your guests will automatically wear or bring sunscreen, but the reality is that most of them will not. As a courtesy (and to prevent your guests from turning into lobsters), set up a sunscreen station where your guests can apply sunscreen. You may also want to provide some fun sunglasses for those who forgot to bring theirs! Your guests will appreciate it. And while we are on the subject of sunscreen, make sure you and your bridal party have applied an ample amount as well.

Offer refreshments- As a courtesy to your guests, especially on a hot day it is a good idea to offer some cool refreshments before and after the ceremony. Fruit infused water, sweet tea and lemonade are just a few that you may want to consider offering.

Destination Wedding Tips

Destination Weddings on St. Simons Island

Planning a destination can be both fun and nerve-wracking. You are getting ready to have your wedding at your dream location but the downside is that you don’t have the luxury of having someone run to your house to pick up an item that you forgot to bring to the wedding venue. Although there can be last minute challenges that can occur during a destination wedding, remember that most weddings (no matter where they are) will have a hiccup or two. Here are our tips to help make sure your dream destination wedding goes off without a hitch!

  • Hire a wedding planner. One of the best investments you can make for your wedding is to hire a planner. This is even more important when you are planning a destination wedding. If you are able to hire a planner who is local to where you are getting married, you will have their expertise at your fingertips when you have a question about a wedding venue or a vendor. This will mean less of a headache for you!
  • Stay organized. When packing for your wedding, write a list of everything you plan to pack and be packed up and ready to go a few days prior to your departure. This will help alleviate the issue of forgetting to pack something.
  • Ship items. Don’t try to pack ceremony items & wedding favors in your suitcase. You will drive yourself crazy. Instead, ship these items to the wedding venue (or to your wedding planner) ahead of time. That will free up space in your luggage to pack that extra pair of shoes or your favorite dress!
  • Do NOT check your wedding dress. Whatever you do, do NOT check your wedding dress when you get to the airport. It may be a pain, but carry it with you. You won’t be able to forgive yourself if you check your wedding dress and the airline damages it or it gets lost for a few days.

Once you arrive at your destination, we recommend you meet with your planner, do a walk-through of the wedding location and have a menu tasting with the caterer or reception venue. Remember that you chose a destination wedding for a reason. Don’t forget to take in the local culture and scenery. Enjoy the location and relax before you say “I do”!
