It's a common question for Florida Keys Weddings: Do the guys have to wear a jacket? Isn't it too hot to wear jacket?

Although a jacket and/or vest is standard protocol at most weddings for the men, The Florida Keys is far removed from "standard protocol". Couples choose to get married in the Florida Keys because of our laid-back lifestyle.

No shirt, no shoes.....no problem! OK, maybe you should wear a shirt at your wedding.

Popular choices for our Florida Keys grooms: Tommy Bahama and Cubavera top the list with their natural linen fibers and colorful choices. And Raybans....let's not forget the cool factor.

My true wedding planner story: I had a groom insist on wearing sandals with his black tux at his church wedding in Key West. I chuckled...

Here’s a look at the new 2018 wedding trends, and the details to bring them to life, for your upcoming Florida Keys wedding.

Navy is the new black.
As an alternative to formal black, brides and grooms are opting for dark to medium blue as the neutral shade in their Florida Keys wedding’s color palette and we’re seeing a lot of navy blue bridesmaid dresses too.

Pantone named 'Ultra Violet' the Color Of The Year which means we will be seeing purple at many Florida Keys weddings in the next coming months. For winter, a darker plum will most likely be used and in the spring and summer we will see a shade more closely resembling Ultra Violet.

Metallics are here to stay, but instead of gold use brass and rose gold that continu...

When you think of a Florida Keys wedding, you often think of a casual affair on the beach with friends and family who have flown in from all around the county to celebrate your wedding day. Many of our Brides at D'Asigner Events have just that scenario in mind...but they also want their day to be a formal affair....hence the black tie wedding a la Florida Keys.

Tented weddings will give you the formal backdrop you want, anywhere you want. Go from the shaded comfort of the tent to the poolside bar. This turquoise wedding incorporated the popular color with the bold tropical floral centerpieces. Bamboo chiavari chairs gave a tropical yet elegant vibe.

Believe it or not, marrying away from home used to be synonymous with the old-fashioned version of eloping -- boarding a train or plane to marry without family approval. While destination weddings look different now, they're still a great way to ensure you have a wedding that is completely you.

A Florida Keys destination wedding can involve just the two of you; a select handful of family and friends; or enough guests to constitute a bona fide week-long family (or college) reunion.

The time has come—Pantone has announced the Color of the Year for 2018! And while broadly this is seen as a trend dictator or predictor for fashion and interiors for the upcoming year, we as Florida Keys weddings planners of course are always thinking about how the color of the year is applicable to wedding trends and decor. And for 2018 the color is (drumroll please) Ultra Violet purple!

So how exactly do you incorporate this striking, regal shade of violet into your wedding day? You could think big, bold and monochromatic—or, if you can't quite commit, sprinkle hints of Ultra Violet throughout your day to add depth and energy to anything from cake embellishments to flower girl dresses.

Violet symbolizes experimentation and no...

There are some matches that just seem like they're made in heaven. In my opinion, blue and white is one of them - and to me, it also feels innately and classically southern. That could be because blue is the hue that we see most around us every day in our environment. Our Florida Keys skies are so often a bright, clear wash of aqua, interrupted only by white clouds that remind us of cotton. Many of us in this region also live close to a body of water.

Blue comes in an almost endless variety of tones, which our vistas show us so magnificently: indigo as the last light dies at sunset; the powder blue of early morning skies and the slate-tinged grey-blue of the Atlantic in the Winter months.

If you’re not planning to have any formal events at your Florida Keys wedding, and you’d like a cocktail party more than a dance party, it may make sense to save money by hiring a non-professional. But if you’re investing thousands of dollars on creating the perfect day, please don’t jeopardize it by hiring someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

As important as vendors are to a successful wedding day, you can imagine how nervous we get when clients say they are using friends or family members as vendors. While it would be easy for us to beg and plead for clients to "NEVER EVER....like EVER" hire their friends or family members to act as vendors, we realize that isn't practical so we wanted to give you some tips on how to hire friends in a way that protects your wedding and the friendship.
