 I’m getting married in MS, but not on the Gulf Coast. I’m about an hour and a half north.

Hi Jenny!

I am an event designer in Louisiana, MS, and TN, most of the vendors that I know are willing to travel, it’s not terribly far from the stateline. I actually have a wedding in Ocean Springs as well. I have a WONDERFUL caterer who is caribbean and could definitely spread the beach flavor. She also does cakes, rentals, etc. What is included in your venue?  What type of floral look are you going for? I do really simple floral designs, with one type of fresh flower, but if you want something more elaborate, you can definitely go with a florist in the area. Let me know if you’d like me to suggest any.  Have you thought about having a planner/coordinator to assist?

My sister had a great caterer!!  I actually went to another wedding this year and they used this caterer for the rehearsal dinner too!  Patsy is the one who runs the show and she was fabulous to work with-and the food was great both times!

@jennycv:  I think one of the nicest reception places in Moss Point is the Pelican Landing Center.  My cousin’s reception was there, and it turned out really well.  A website I’ve found helpful is http://www.gulfcoast.org

I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and I’m looking for a site too!  Preferably in the Biloxi/Ocean Springs area.  Problem is I’m being picky.  I want something indoors in case the weather is awful, but with the possibility of spreading outdoors if it’s nice.  Plus, I want a casually elegant barbecue/shrimp boil reception.  Let me know if y’all have any ideas!

I have a bride whose reception is at the coastal ballroom at the Courtyard by Marriot in Gulfport, MS. And the pictures of it are quite lovely….

jennycv, I’m sorry that didn’t work out!  I can’t blame you, planning a wedding from a distance is stressful enough, forget about having to deal with rude people on top of it!  Good luck finding a site…and do check out the http://www.gulfcoast.org website, they have a lot of listings.

Oh, and I can vouch for Lagniappe having delicious food!  And they’re really nice people too.  Patsy’s husband was one of my college instructors.
