Orlando-based newlyweds Holly and Jesus tied the knot at Isleworth Country Club in February. Their memorable celebration included many festive Mexican and Latin touches, designed to give their families and friends the feeling of an authentic fiesta.

An array of Mexican and Latin touches made this celebration memorable…

Their wedding began with an outdoor ceremony, followed by a delightful cocktail reception where guests enjoyed Sangria and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Then, guests entered the ballroom to the music of a Spanish guitar, and were seated at tables named for Mexican cities.

Destination Wedding Celebration

Destination weddings are so much fun!

Last week we welcomed Stacy and Matt from Ann Arbor to sunny Florida!  In a few short months we designed all the elements of their destination nuptials which took place in the town of Celebration.   It was an intimate affair, but the energy was high – there was no doubt everyone was ready to celebrate!

Bride Stacy was stunning in her figure flattering wedding gown, and her attendants looked breezy and beautiful in aqua tea length dresses.  Professional hair and makeup styling made the ladies picture perfect!

Gorgeous floral was a key element for this destination wedding.  The bridal bouquet was exquisite, as were the floral trees which were used at both the ceremony and reception.  Guests enjoyed a fabulous plated dinner followed by dessert and dancing.  The couple made a grand exit with a classic car.

Loved our team for this wedding: Raining Roses, Horizon Entertainment, Rhodes Studios, Visual Effects by Seth, Your Wedding Makeup, Party Flavors, and the Bohemian Hotel Celebration

It’s no secret that Florida is a popular destination wedding location – statewide we offer historic hotels, glorious gardens, beautiful beaches and amazing attractions!  Should you be considering a wedding here, we’ve prepared a few Destination Wedding Tips to help you get the most from your out-of-town wedding:

  1. Marry off peak. Weekday weddings are by far the most affordable.  Don’t compete with the locals for prime dates and Saturdays; opt for a weekday instead. Vendors and wedding professionals often reserve discounted rates for mid-week weddings.
  2. Whenever possible, decor should be ‘multi-purpose’.  For this wedding, two of the floral trees were used at the wedding ceremony and then moved to the reception
  3. Work with what you have. The venue was so well appointed, there was little need to bring in linen, decor for the cocktail reception, etc.
  4. Don’t leave anything to chance. You can’t simply rely on websites (things are not always as they appear).   Working with an experienced Planner will give you piece of mind; trust them to advise you and guide you to qualified wedding professionals.   (We’re so glad Stacy & Matt chose A Flair for Affairs; if we can help you please let us know!  Otherwise, the Association of Bridal Consultants can be an excellent resource.)
  5. Keep It Simple Sweetie. Don’t bog yourself down with too many things to pack (such as cake knives, or favors, etc.), and don’t over-schedule yourself – leave plenty of time for last minute errands, driving to and from various locations, and photo sessions.
