Top 5 Ways to De-stress for Brides to Be

Don’t Let The Stresses of Planning Your Florida Destination Wedding Get to You

Dreaming of a beach wedding? Sometimes making those dreams into a reality can be stressful. From hard to reach vendors to inflating budgets and unexpected requests from family members, wedding planning can easily become a burden for even the most well-organized couples.

At Hilton Sandestin Beach, we want our couples to remain stress free! We offer expert beach wedding coordination services, pre-vetted vendors and an array of activities and amenities to chase away stress while you’re on property. Let us turn your dream destination wedding in Florida into a reality — and let us take your stress away.

Below, see our top 5 ways for brides to de-stress before the big day:

1. Toasting to "Mrs" at Barefoots

Before you say “I Do” have a drink or two at Barefoot’s! With a beautiful view of your beach wedding venue (if you choose to exchange vows in the sand or on our pool deck), you’ll be able to listen to the gentle sound of waves lapping against the shore and feel a cool breeze on your skin. Toast to kissing “miss” goodbye in #hiltonsandestin style — with a frozen treat and a Gulf-front seat. If you choose to indulge in the evening, make sure to sit by our fire pit and relax on cozy chairs as the sun sinks into the Gulf.

2. Wine Sipping in Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood

As a premier Florida destination wedding venue, Hilton Sandestin Beach offers multiple unique dining venues and outlets. One of our favorites is our New York-style steakhouse, Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood. At Seagar’s, you can enjoy an evening sipping on one of our more than 600 labels of wine as you focus on your future and forget about wedding planning for a night. Seagar’s is the perfect atmosphere to escape your worries and indulge in a bit of classic elegance with friends and loved ones. Sit at the bar and listen to the soothing sounds of our baby grand piano, or relax in our intimate wine room surrounded by our finest bottles.


3. Full-Service Hair & Nails

Your wedding day should be the happiest day of your life, so let Serenity by the sea Spa’s salon team help create the perfect bridal look. With a full menu of hair, nail and make up services, our staff is able to give your entire bridal party a polished look without having to leave the resort. Remain stress-free with your beauty team just steps away from your suite. Book yourself (and your bridal party!) for a morning of pampering at Serenity before your beach wedding. Spa music, comfortable furniture, and calm-colored decor will bring your stress level down a few notches before the big ceremony.

4. Treat Yourselves to a Couples Massage

Prefer to relax with your sweetheart by your side? Indulge in a couple’s massage before the big day, or to celebrate your status as newlyweds, at Serenity by the sea Spa. These side-by-side massages are sure to release any tension and stress you feel around your beach wedding. 


5. Take in the Views

What’s a beach wedding without some beach views? Gather your bridal party together the morning of your big day in one of our Presidential Suites. These suites are luxurious and spacious, with over 1,600 square feet for your entire bridal party to relax and get ready for the ceremony. Did we mention the unbeatable view? With stunning Gulf views and a private balcony, everyone will love spending time in this private beach retreat.


Don’t let planning your Florida destination wedding cause you any stress. We offer a variety of amenities and outlets for pre and post-wedding relaxation. Whether you need a cocktail with a view, some soothing piano tunes or a little pampering — we have your back!
