Georgia On My Mind

Georgia weddings are amazing! Our Cocktails & Details® team knows that regardless of the craziness of the world, wedding cancelations, and postponements, we are so blessed to work where we work.

Outdoors and Physically Distant

As the world and weddings start to slowly reopen, we know that when it comes to being safe, social distancing is enhanced by being outside.

And, whether you are looking at a wedding on Jekyll Island, Saint Simons Island, or anywhere along our coasts, there are spectacular outdoor spaces to host your wedding.

Historic mansions with sprawling lawns set the ideal backdrop for wedding ceremonies. They offer space for extra-wide aisles and to space out seating. Beautiful courtyards and opportunities for tented receptions take full advantage of our fantastic weather and picturesque scenery.

Smaller Weddings, Not Small On Details

While interpretations on reception sizes seem to differ from place to place, our Cocktails & Details® team sees a trend toward smaller, more intimate weddings.

Just know that smaller weddings are still overflowing with incredible details. They are the perfect opportunity to focus on the guest experience.

For many couples, smaller guest counts translate into some of those splurges on their wedding wish list. Everyone’s wish list is unique, from upgrading to personalized custom invitations to infusing the day with multiple touches of live music.

This is the perfect opportunity to bring in those incredible local culinary treats or craft beers and liquors. Nothing says southern hospitality like a curated bourbon tasting or a dessert display filled with homey coastal Georgia treats.

Southern Charm

Beyond those tempting taste treats, you might want to consider having us create a spacious, physically distant lounge setting. 

With some guests choosing not to get up and dance, creating a comfortable area a few steps away from the action can add to guests’ comfort. Vintage furnishings, woven rugs, and throw pillows offer a tranquil getaway.

We love the addition of beautiful textured linens, local flowers, and greenery in unique vessels. They pair beautifully with vintage glassware and eclectic china. There are literally as many options for personalizing the details of your wedding as there are weddings.

With intimate weddings of family and close friends, pull out the stops and include those details that really tell the story of you as a couple and reflect your personalities.

Our Cocktails & Details® design team looks forward to working with you on these and lush additions to your wedding day.
