Real Weddings, A Palm Beach Wedding

After receiving such a large response to our Unique Wedding Locations blog post and getting many requests to hear more about weddings that we have planned at the Flagler Museum, we wanted to give everyone a closer look at one of the fabulous weddings that took place there.

From the ceremony to the reception, this wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Surrounded by beautiful architecture, exceptional food, and lively entertainment, the bride, groom and their guests were able to dance the night away in one of the most majestic settings on Palm Beach Island.

So You’re Engaged, Now What?

Congratulations on your recent engagement!

You are  so elated, and want to tell everyone about the exciting news and get started on planning your big day!

But who do you tell  first and what are your next steps?!

1. Of course, first on your call list should be your relatives and then your closest of friends.

It’s important to personally tell people that are closest to you about your engagement before making your big announcement on social media.

2. Get your ring sized and most importantly added to your insurance. Having your ring insured will put your mind at peace.

3. Set a window of time that you would like your wedding to take place. For Florida Brides, high season is from November until April. If you are considering a Florida wedding, be aware that prices are considerably higher during this period of time.

6. Now, its time to get a wedding planner. At this point it is important to secure your key vendors such as your venue, photographer, videographer entertainment, and florist. An event planner will help you to stay in your budget, advise you on tried and tested professional vendors within your budget, negotiate all of your contracts, and most importantly, allow you to be a guest at your own wedding on your special day.
