Wedding Weekend Agenda

Rehearsal Dinner, Family Outings & More at Your Florida Beach Wedding

Florida beach weddings are so magical, you’ll want yours to last the whole weekend. And it’s no wonder. Our sugar-white sand and emerald water make an ideal backdrop for any ceremony.

When you invite your friends and families to your wedding at Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, ask them to stay and celebrate all weekend long. You’ll have more time to get to know each other, enjoy yourselves and celebrate. We have some beach wedding ideas and tips to keep the celebrations going all weekend.

Rehearsal Dinner at Seagar’s

The rehearsal dinner sets the tone for the entire weekend — it’s the kickoff to your Florida beach wedding celebration. An ideal venue will provide an intimate atmosphere where guests can get to know each other and enjoy an unforgettable meal together. Consider hosting your rehearsal at Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, where you can reserve a private room and give your wedding weekend an elegant start. Your guests will savor the AAA Four-Diamond restaurant’s prime beef and fresh seafood, as well as 600 labels of wine to choose from its award-winning wine list.

Pre-Ceremony Spa Day with Friends and Family

A pre-ceremony trip to Serenity by the sea Spa is a must for brides. And who says that the bridal party, family and friends don’t deserve a little indulgence, too? While the bride prepares for her big moment with a wedding spa package, the rest of the party can relax with a tailored spa package including a manicure/pedicure, a massage and a facial treatment. This is a beach wedding idea everyone will love. The spa’s group services also include a private room complete with catering and music so you may truly unwind.

Beach Games with Family Before the Ceremony

For guests who’d rather play than be pampered, enjoying a few casual beach games together is a great way to bond before the ceremony. Our recreation staff can help you create the perfect program to show your guests a good time. There are games to suit every group and you can even host your own private Beach Olympics, complete with medals and an awards ceremony. When hosting a Florida beach wedding, fun in the sand is a must.

Farewell Brunch at Sandcastles Restaurant

The morning after your wedding, you have one more chance to spend some quality time with your nearest and dearest before they head home. Consider hosting your farewell brunch at Sandcastles. The restaurant serves up a popular breakfast buffet, and guests can also order classics such as steak and eggs or Frangelico French Toast à la carte. Sandcastles has a casual atmosphere that lends itself to catching up, reminiscing about the weekend and saying  goodbyes.
