I am looking to plan a wedding in Destin, Florida as a destination wedding for approx. 50 guests with a home reception after. Any tips on having a destination wedding? Any tips on Destin, Florida area? Ideas for venues, etc.? Also, any tips or experience on having a home reception following a destination wedding? I’m feeling a little overwhelmed trying to figure out if this is the best plan for us! Any thoughts welcome, please and thank you!

Be very mindful of when you plan to get married if you want to avoid crowds. Destin is quickly becoming another Panama City Beach with the spring breakers. It’s also always packed with families in summer. The beaches are beautiful, but I would choose a date accordingly based on the type of atmosphere you want. There are several little beach towns on the outskirts of Destin that have a more romantic feel if that’s what you’re after.

I got married in Panama City Beach last October. It was a great time of year because the weather was still great and there were no crowds. We used Carillon Weddings which is a full service venue but you can also use their planning services at other venues. They were fantastic and took care of all the details, I didn’t have to worry about anything!
