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.

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...

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.

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.

Weddings in the Florida Keys are magical, special, romantic, and a day to remember. However, planning a destination wedding is sometimes stressful, time consuming, and although fun and exciting, can be a lot of work for a bride and groom. There are a lot of decisions that need to be made and plenty of small details that are easy to overlook. Hiring help to ensure that your wedding turns out exactly how you dreamed is always a good idea. Wedding planners often offer two options: Day of wedding coordination or wedding planning service. But what kind of help do you need from your wedding planner in the Florida Keys?

Day-of Wedding Planning:

Day-of Wedding planning is exactly what it sounds like, day-of help with small details to make sure the event runs smoothly. Day of wedding planning is perfect for couples that are capable of planning the wedding themselves. If you are organized, excited about the process, and have enough time to commit, planning your own wedding may be the perfect route to take. While this option has the potential to be overwhelming and stressful, there are so many benefits to planning your own wedding including saving money and being 100% involved. But, when it comes down to the day of the wedding, you do not want to be worried about what time the flowers are arriving, when the cake should be brought out, or where the band should set up. This is where a day-of wedding planner steps in to make sure that all of your hard work in planning this wedding pays off and runs smoothly. On your special day you should not have to worry about any details except saying “I do!”

Full Wedding Planning:

Wedding planning can be overwhelming and time consuming and many couples are unable or don’t want to commit to planning everything themselves leading up to their wedding day. Full-service wedding planning offers couples help every step of the way from picking a venue to overseeing the vendors. This type of planning allows couples to rely on someone else to stay organized and on top of the planning process while still being very involved in decision making. However, this type of planning can be very expensive especially when customization is desired.

The best type of planning is different for each couple. Your decision will likely come down to budget and time. Talk to your partner about what would be best for your pocketbook and the ideal option to minimize stress!
