DESTIN, FL, May 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, the #1 resort on Florida's Emerald Coast, is well-positioned to assist brides seeking a perfect destination wedding. The resort is reporting double the number of weddings and receptions booked within the first five months for 2014 compared to the entire 2013 wedding season.

From rehearsal dinners and farewell breakfasts, to bonfires on the beach and golf outings, Sandestin offers any activity to suit the needs of families and guests. Here are the top 10 reasons couples choose Sandestin for a wedding destination.
- Luxurious venues. Sandestin is known for its large selection of beautiful wedding venues on land and sea - from the popular white sandy beaches, lush, green lawns, and bay fronts, to their elegant ballrooms. The wedding party can also sail away with family and friends aboard the Solaris, a full-service yacht docked at Sandestin's Baytowne Marina, making Sandestin the ultimate wedding destination in Northwest Florida.
- Excellent value. Their on-site wedding and event staff cater to a variety of tastes and budgets customizing menus to fit the need of every bride and groom.
- Girl time. Shopping, spa, dining, nightlife and so much more. These are just a few luxuries brides and their closest family and friends can look forward to when having their wedding at Sandestin. The best part is that brides can rest easy knowing their husbands-to-be will be having just as much fun playing a round of golf with their friends.
- Fore! Brides and grooms alike need to take time before their "big day" and enjoy old-fashioned fun and relaxation. With four championship golf courses, guests can look forward to spending a fun and relaxing day with friends without a care in the world but deciding whose turn it is to buy the next round.
- Gather round. The perfect way to end the day and enjoy the beach is around a bonfire on the beach telling stories, laughing at old memories and creating new ones.
- Bid farewell. The reception doesn't need to be the last opportunity to spend with your guests before everyone goes their separate way. Let Sandestin host a brunch for you and your guests to say one last farewell to your wedding weekend.
