Wedding Trends We Love
The opportunities are endless when it comes to planning your perfect wedding. From decorations to dinner to dessert there are so many ways to celebrate your special day. Capt. Hiram’s Resort can accommodate a wide range of wedding styles.
Being located on the scenic Treasure Coast of Florida, Capt. Hiram’s Resort cares deeply about the waterways and the environment. Now more than couples are opting to incorporate sustainable options into each aspect of their wedding. Here’s how you can celebrate your big day and go green at the same time:
Have an Outdoor Wedding
An outdoor wedding with natural light on beautiful Bimini Beach is a great way to cut down on energy usage. At Capt. Hiram’s Resort, there is also outdoor space available for a rehearsal dinner, reception, and even a post-wedding brunch.
Wedding websites make it easy to have a paperless wedding and these sites are becoming more popular every year. A wedding website can be used in lieu of paper snail mail for invitations, save the dates, and wedding weekend itineraries.
When choosing a caterer and a florist, consider reaching out to local vendors. Choosing food and flowers that are local will help cut down on carbon emissions and support the local economy in the process.
Micro weddings provide a simplified and casual atmosphere for a handful of guests. Couples are choosing to have a micro wedding so that they can have a more intimate celebration with their closest friends and family. Plus, a smaller wedding means less to to plan and stress about. A smaller guest list also allows couples to allocate more of the budget toward items that may not have made the cut such as gourmet food, top shelf liquor, or live entertainment.
At Capt. Hiram’s Resort, the Bimini Beach and Tiffany Room venues provide a fun, intimate space for your celebration with friends and family. However, if a micro wedding is not your style, these venues can host up to 150 people with plenty of room to party!
The catering team at Capt. Hiram’s Resort will provide couples with the inspiration and assistance they need to create the perfect wedding menu. With the Sandbar Beach Club located right on property, they know a thing or two about post-party snacks. The team can put together a delicious midnight snack package for your after party. While they are partial to bar food, the team can also provide fresh fruit and veggies, cheese platters, and dessert trays.
Wedding Welcome Bags
Wedding favors are a popular way to show appreciation for guests that have traveled to celebrate your special day. However, favors are a huge budget item and often get left behind after the reception. Chances are that guests traveling from out of town will not want to carry around a bunch of random knick knacks. Try a wedding welcome bag in lieu of traditional party favors. Wedding welcome bags are great for guests because they are well thought out and useful. Some recommended items are water, snacks, hangover cure items such as Advil and Emergen-C, thank you notes, and special souvenirs from your wedding venue – there are tons of adorable Florida souvenirs available in Capt. Hiram’s Boatique gift shop.
