Christie was great to work with and we truly enjoyed having her as a part of our wedding. Since this was a destination wedding for us, we did not get a chance to meet until the day is the ceremony. We wanted to find someone who was friendly and showed genuine interest in our relationship and wedding day, which we did not accomplish right away in speaking with other officiants. However we definitely found this in Christie! She made the attempt to get to know us a little bit in just a couple brief phone chats and we appreciated the effort. She sent us several example document

s of wedding content which we decided to use as a guide to write our own content (we had a non-religious ceremony). The ceremony went smoothly and she read our content very well. It was a little fast, but it was also very hot and I’m sure everyone was ready to head back inside! Christie always had a smile on her face and looked like she was enjoying herself which really put the bride at ease 🙂 Although brief, it was such a pleasure to have her in our company that day.

Christie made sure my wedding dreams come true. She accommodated me and my ever changing wish list with no hesitations. There are many options to choose from to customize your wedding. I chose a simple package because we wanted it to be very intimate and small and it was absolutely beautiful. Mary Lou was my ordained minister. She set up after the rain and waited on us while we were stuck in traffic. The sermon was so touching my husband could not hold back his tears. Laura captured the most beautiful pictures and made we feel like the most beautiful bride.What could have been a traumatic day, Yours Truly Wedding Services made my day unforgettable and I thank everyone who was a part of it.

Absolutely loved working with Christie! I would highly recommend her and their services to anyone. We we’re traveling down from out of state and with only a couple weeks to spare. Christie was always helpful and very quick with responses. We had a great experience

My husband and I planned a wedding in Destin VERY last minute. Christie was so helpful with the whole process. She assisted me in getting a location at the last minute that I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. She was very responsive to calls and emails, and ensured that everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend her services if you’re getting married in the area.

Fall Is the Perfect Time for Reserving your Wedding Date for Next Year

As fall approaches us, most couples are planning their beach wedding for next year. Fall is the perfect time to also have your beach wedding as our busy tourist season is April through September so the beaches will be less crowded.

Another thing to keep in mind is there are only so many beach permits for weddings so if you reserve your date now, you will be more guaranteed to have a beach access next year for the busy months.

Henderson Beach State Park is one of our favorites as they have plenty parking and mark a spot off on the beach for you for your ceremony. The public beach accesses do not. Check out their You Tube Video so you can see what Henderson Beach State has to offer for your Destin beach wedding.


Reserving Beach Accesses

Come to our beautiful white sandy beaches to have your special wedding day. When reserving your wedding date, Yours Truly Weddings will assist you in how to obtain a beach wedding permit. You can also visit our Destinations link at for more information.

Our favorite beach access in Destin is Henderson Beach State Park where they partition off a place for you on the beach. You can also use your condo’s beach access. Just make sure you get permission from them first. It is not required to have a beach permit before your reserve your date as long as we know where to set up for you in advance before your special day arrives.

Call us today at 850-543-9204 for more information.

5 Rules on Choosing Your Bridesmaids’ Dresses

After you have chosen your bridesmaids for your wedding, you will then start the hunt for the perfect bridesmaids’ dress so they can make you look even better.

Here are a few rules to help with your chosen dress.

  1. Keep It Short
    When picking out dresses, you may want to go with a short length so that the ends of the dress aren’t dragging in the sand and the hemline isn’t damaged by the beach wind and potential waves. Going short can also allow your bridesmaids to pick out cute shoes, whether they’re flat sandals or something more formal, that make the dress pop with their personality.
  2. Pick the Right Fabric
    When determining what kind of fabric is best for a beach bridesmaids’ dress, think about picking something that breathes, like chiffon or cotton. A casual look may be more comfortable for your squad of BFFs to wear when walking down the sandy aisle.
  3. Remember What Season It Is
    Don’t immediately think hot weather just because you’re heading seaside. Sometimes, depending on the season, it can be chilly at night on the water. If you’re getting married during a month that has seasonally cold temperatures after dark, consider adding a shawl or jacket to the dress you select.
  4. Go With the Flow
    A flowy bridesmaids’ dress may blend better with a beach wedding vibe than one that is skintight. Since it may be a bit harder to move around on sand, you may want to pick a dress that ebbs and flows in the same way the palm trees do at the beach.
  5. Simple Usually Is Better
    One big benefit of doing a beach wedding is that you don’t have to splurge on fancy decorations, since the background scenery will wow your guests. That rule applies to bridesmaids’ dresses too. Picking something that’s softer in color may stand out more than you think outdoors in beach paradise.
