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 bridesmaid dress


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 wedding bouquet


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 wedding table setting


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.

Is a Destination Wedding Right for You?

Why Choose a Destination Wedding?

You’re in the planning stages, navigating that slippery slope between starry-eyed betrothal and a wedding’s obligations and expectations.

  • Those of you who have always dreamed of your wedding in your hometown, surrounded by tradition, will find great comfort and presence in forging ahead with those plans.
  • Others of you, however, envision creating a world away in a remote spot, where you’re in charge of the timeline and the size of the guest list naturally limits itself.

If you find yourself in the second group, consider a destination wedding venue at the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort on St. Simons Island, just off Georgia’s coast.  Pictured above, the resort’s front lawn provides the perfect spot to gather with family and friends for a casual reception or to meet before venturing out to discover the island’s delights.  Surrounded by friends, family, nature, history and the pounding surf, you’ll create your own traditions………..which can include, by the way, annual reunions on your anniversary at the King and Prince!

Consider Timeless Music for Your March Down the Aisle (or Beach)

The Piano Guys

Here comes the Bride…. it’s a classic.  Vivaldi?  Love it.  But since you’re spreading your wings and creating a different sort of wedding experience, consider this.   Whether you walk down the aisle or down the beach at your destination wedding, set the stage with alternative music such as “A Thousand Years”  by The Piano Guys (click here for a listen).  Its slow, measured pace, a sort of love song between piano and cello, sets the stage- transporting you and your guests into an open, relaxed presence where the timeless nature of  the vows you make will shine for years in memory.

Looking for the perfect backdrop?    May we suggest the Delegal Room at the King and Prince:  historic, elegant, yours for a day.

Don’t Super-Size Me!

The Latest Thing in Weddings

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Oceanfront destination wedding
What’s the latest trend in weddings?  The oldest things in the world:  simplicity, family, and friends.  Gone are the days when bride and groom spent their wedding day isolated from others, like figures on a wedding cake.  Regardless of their potential to spend, couples today are looking to connect with others rather than trying to impress them.

And, of course, the perfect venue for elegance and simplicity is a Georgia beach wedding at the King and Prince Resort.  There you can spend hours overlooking the Atlantic, or explore the community that is the island itself.  You’re not in a faceless “all-inclusive” golden cage, but rather surrounded by history and interests at all levels, from sports to history to spa.

If I had it to do all over again, I’d be here.  Hmmmmm maybe 25th anniversary coming up?  Save the date……………

Set the Stage

Destination Wedding SpaceLooking for the perfect destination wedding venue?  Create a little of your own history at the King and Prince.  Gorgeous blue stained glass windows frame the ocean view in the resort’s Delegal Room.  The room, named for the first British fortification on the south end of the island, sets the stage for an elegant reception or welcome brunch.  Each window bursts with light, depicting St. Simons scenes:  St. Simons Lighthouse, the Battle of Bloody Marsh, Christ Church, the beach, the King and Prince……..Or, for a more casual spin, create a treasure hunt for guests:  first one to visit each historic sight wins a prize (maybe a return trip?).

Nancy Krabill at Taste of Glynn

Plan your St. Simons Island wedding at the King and Prince Resort, and begin your own love affair with this place that will call you home time and time again.   Talk to visitors and you’ll hear the mantra, steady as the sea breezes playing on the coast:  “I’ve been coming here for years,” “My parents honeymooned here and now it’s my turn,”  “We came as wedding guests and stayed on for the rest of the week…”

I’m Nancy Krabill, a local with my own trove of King and Prince memories, but more about that later. For the next few weeks, I’ll be sending you real-time blasts that only an insider can share with brides-to-be considering their all-important wedding resort venue.  After all, the destination itself is a key star in your wedding event.  You’ll want one that needs no rehearsal: not just another pretty backdrop but one with a real sense of place, time and culture.

If this beach in Georgia sounds just peachy to you, come back here for a visit as we explore the history and charm not only of the resort, but also of its surroundings, cuisine, local characters, outdoor activities, and of course, shopping opportunities.

Warmest regards – Nancy
