Our aim is simple – to exceed your expectations and produce an extraordinary beach wedding for you and your loved ones to treasure.
White Sand Weddings is a full service wedding and event planning company specializing in Beach & Destination Beach Wedding Planning and Ceremony Packages, as well as complete floral & event design services!
Our services are designed to allow you to enjoy the wedding and event planning process, secure in the knowledge that your wedding is professionally taken care of. Our cool heads, organized thoughts,coordinating expertise and network of flexible suppliers all work closely together, making sure all the necessary details to make your event a complete success, are carefully managed.
The majority of our couples are invariably very busy, yet have a vision of what they want their beach wedding to be but do not have the time to dedicate to bring that vision to life. They may be managing other responsibilities such as demanding careers and/or young families. Most are planning destination or Florida beach weddings from afar with short time frames and others simply require that professional touch for what is often the largest and most complex event of their lives.
The latest technology is not what our clients ask for, it’s what they expect. The majority of our couples that are planning their White Sand Wedding are provided with their very own complimentary wedding website. White Sand Weddings uses the latest software and tools including a program that allows us to collaborate and share details with clients remotely via Web-based tools, including an “Ideas and Inspiration Board”, shared calendars, budget tracking, and more.
Our strong connection with you, our client, is paramount to us in order that we deliver your perfect Florida Beach Wedding, to suit all your requirements.
Committed, Creative, Respected, and Affordable… Why wouldn’t you choose White Sand Weddings?
First, let me begin by congratulating you and your fiancé on your engagement.
How exciting? There is no sound sweeter than hearing the one you love ask for your hand in marriage. Now that it is official and you are engaged, let the planning begin. I truly believe that it is never too early or too late to begin planning your Florida Beach Wedding as long as you hire your best choice first…
Hello, my name is Betsy Soles, owner-planner-designer, and it is my passion and pleasure to take the stress out of the ceremony planning process by bringing together a highly skilled team of trained professionals, all proficient in their craft to work in concert with each other to my standards of excellence. I strive to make every beach wedding unique while maintaining the right balance between the client’s style and their creative approach. This is one of the many reasons why choosing White Sand Weddings makes so much sense for the busy bride and groom or for those planning a destination wedding from afar. Whether you want a daytime wedding or a ceremony at sunset, I will be prepared to ensure your coastal wedding displays perfection. Ultimately, whatever you can dream up, you can rest assured that it will be amazing thanks to my network of hand chosen vendors and of course the natural wonders of Florida’s Emerald Coast!
Again, congrats and always remember to
“hire your best choice first.”
