The time has come. You've fallen in love, gotten engaged, and now its up to you to plan the perfect wedding that is as beautiful as it is cost-effective. If you're planning a beach wedding, and the white sands of the Gulf Shores are where you've decided to bury your and your family's toes, you've got some of the best professionals at your service to help you with the planning of your special day.

Many people hand off the task of planning to a professional planner. This route is ideal because the umbrella of services provided makes for a much less stressful time for the bride, groom, and their family members. Barefoot Beach Events specializes in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach weddings. The staff at Barefoot work to provide wedding concept, design, venue options, catering, music, entertainment, staging and audio/visual, lighting design, invitations, accommodations, transportation, rehearsal coordination, beauty, budgeting, photography, cake tasting, and even officiate selection.

Another local wedding planning service is the Gulf Shores Wedding Planners. Their website allows you to select from a series of packages or to create a customizable checklist of services they can assist you with. The option to create your own package through the site provides prices and a calculated estimate.

When considering accommodations for your loved ones, an option to consider is a vacation rental, like one of our Gulf Shores condos or Orange Beach rentals, as opposed to a hotel. Going this route is more affordable and provides a much more intimate experience for your family. With multiple rooms, a kitchen, better accessibility to the area, and overall, more space, the time spent together leading up to your special day will be much more memorable.

If you are looking to take the wheel on your wedding planning process, sites like Wedding Wire curate lists of location-specific vendors with contact information, reviews, and pricing. The site is a one-stop resource for every aspect of the wedding planning process. The site includes a forum that allows you to communicate directly with other brides-to-be and local vendors, a wedding checklist, destination wedding inspiration ideas, and even includes a registry that can be accessed by your guests.

Relax. You have picked one of the most romantic locations in America to celebrate your big day with family and friends, and you're staying at one of our Orange Beach condos or Gulf Shores rentals. Enjoy your planning process and take comfort in knowing that excellent resources are at your disposal. The beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and seasoned party planning professionals are here to help make your big day the very best that it can be.
