This month our Director of Catering Sales, Emily Buckley is sharing with us her top 3 tips on how to make your wedding day memorable! Emily was voted as Best Event Planner in Destin through VIP Destin Magazine's Reader Choice Awards 2022. Read more to get all the scoop.
Tip #1: Details and Décor
Depending on what type of environment you want your guests to experience during your wedding ceremony or reception, make sure you are matching it to your décor. For example, if you’re wanting to achieve a classic wedding feel, maybe this means you go with red roses and silver utensils with white glass plates.
Tip #2: Cocktail Hour Conversation
Emerald Grande has a beautiful new cocktail hour pre-reception area outside of the Grande Ballroom. Customize your cocktail napkins with fun facts about your spouse and you. Such as the first meal you had as a couple or the first city you traveled to together. This is a great way to get the conversation started between your guests and makes your celebration that much more personal!
Tip #3: Snack Time Strikes
Dancing the night away can work up an appetite! So why not incorporate something different like a snack hour? Our catering team has many unique options as add-ons during your reception such as a Grande Charcuterie Board or Donut Wall. Learn more about our catering options when you meet with our team!
