The Emerald Grande: An Ideal Spot For Destin, Florida Weddings
Everyone dreams of an idyllic wedding day, and if you wish to incorporate fresh sea breezes and luxurious ocean vistas into your special day, a wedding at the Emerald Grande is the perfect choice for you. We host Destin, Florida weddings throughout the year and can help you plan out all of the major and minor details so you can be stress free. We offer several different Wedding Packages, but, of course, no couple is the same so we also can create a completely custom event.
Destin, Florida weddings are the ideal option for a destination wedding without having to leave the country. You don’t have to worry about arranging international travel or securing passports. Destin is far easier to access than many other tropical destinations and far more affordable compared to destinations such as Hawaii. The Emerald Grande is all around the perfect option as we can serve as the location for your ceremony and your reception as well as providing world-class accommodations and amenities for you and all of your guests.
Do you wish to say “I Do” on a spectacular white sand beach? Or would you prefer tying the knot on our spacious Captain’s Deck overlooking the lighthouse and the Destin Harbor? At the Emerald Grande, we also have our charming Sunset Deck, which is the ideal location for a smaller ceremony or perhaps a romantic vow renewal.
In HarborWalk Village, which adjoins the Emerald Grande, there are several other excellent options for your ceremony and reception. Enjoy your all-inclusive wedding with stunning views of the emerald waters of Destin and the peaceful harbor. You also can arrange to hold your ceremony at the elite Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club. You can hold your ceremony on the private country club grounds or perhaps on the three-tiered lakeside deck.
Our wedding planners manage any and all of the details from helping you select the flowers and decorations for the ceremony and reception to hiring a photographer and selecting musicians or a DJ. Before your event begins, our full-service spa is here to pamper you on your special day and can help with make-up, hair styling, manicures and pedicures for you and your bridal party.
At Emerald Grande, we don’t just offer a venue for your wedding. We also provide you with a spectacular location for your reception. Your guests are sure to appreciate the ease of moving quickly from ceremony to reception within the same facility.
Our team of wedding planners can create the wedding reception you’ve always dreamed of. We can plan anything from a small, casual affair in our Old World-style Charter Room to a lavish reception in our Emerald Grande Ballroom and anything and everything in between. We can plan outdoor receptions under the stars or perhaps add a breezy silk tent, thin enough for strands of moonlight to shine through. This day is all about you, so our priority is YOU.
Not to mention, you don’t have to fret about finding a catering company. We have a wide selection of gourmet food options for your reception on site. Our team of talented chefs can create virtually any type of custom dinner or buffet that your heart desires. You can begin with an open bar and a hors d’oeuvres buffet and then move on to a plated, three-course meal if you wish. We can even assist with the rehearsal dinner or perhaps a delectable brunch on the morning after.
Not only will your guests appreciate the convenience of enjoying your ceremony and reception at the same location, we also offer special group room rates for our guests planning a wedding at the Emerald Grande. Our luxurious rooms include a range of amenities including a gourmet kitchen, free wireless internet, a washer and dryer, private balconies, daily maid service and more. We have a myriad of room sizes and styles that can accommodate from four to as many as ten guests if needed.
If your guests are plan on staying for multiple days, they are sure to enjoy all of the perks within the Emerald Grande and HarborWalk Village. If they’re travelling for the wedding, why not make it a vacation? Our guest rooms are just steps away from Destin’s finest restaurants, bars, shops and unique attractions. We have two swimming pools, a fitness center, a full-service spa, and we provide a free boat shuttle that will whisk you away to one of our two secluded beaches.
Now that you’re here, you might be wondering what there is to do! If you wish to book special expeditions for your wedding party, there are many great options, whether you’re thrill seeking or simply looking to sit back and relax. Some of them include half-day and full-day fishing trips, sunset cruises, snorkeling excursions, parasailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding or and golfing at the Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club. Our team at the Emerald Grande is more than happy to help you plan and book any of these excursions for you and your guests.
Once the “I Do’s” have been said and the last dance is over, it’s time for the newlyweds to enjoy their honeymoon and there’s no better place than Destin with its white sandy beaches and emerald green coastline. Not only do we plan weddings, we also can make arrangements for your honeymoon. We offer several honeymoon packages for your consideration that include luxuries such as a couples’ massage, breakfast in bed or a romantic, in-room dinner prepared by one of our private chefs.
