FH and I are looking into having a Destination Wedding in north Florida. I’ve been looking online and liked the Hilton resort in Destin, but it’s a bit pricey. Destin or close is my primary focus, but I’m open to other areas, as long as we can have the ceremony on the beach. We won’t be having too many guests, 50 at the most, and mostly close family. I love the idea of everything – lodging, ceremony, and reception – being through one resort and not having to deal with too many vendors in a city 6 or so hours from where we live.
Have any of you brides been to or had your wedding at a resort in northern Florida? How was it? How was the price?

@mepayne: I don’t know much about the venues. But I lived on Perdido Key for a while and I loved it. I would just look around at the islands in the area, Gulf Breeze, Pensacola, Perdido, Destin, Panama City, etc. Also in Alabama, the western part of Perdido and Orange beach are just as nice! Good luck!

I got married at a resort in Orange Beach and can PM you a list of the vendors I used, if you want. We had about 50 guests and I have no idea what the total cost was, but from the invoices I did see, I know it wasn’t cheap.

@beachbridetx: I’ll probably only be having about 20-25 guests, so that’ll knock the price down, but I’d love to see the list of vendors you used (and pictures, if you don’t mind!)
