Why Winter? | Emerald Grande

Why Winter?


Winter in Destin is one of the most beautiful and peaceful times of the year. The temperatures are cooler, beaches are less crowded, and the white sand and emerald water serve as the perfect backdrop for any special occasion. Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village is the destination for your dreamy winter wedding.

Imagine waking up on the best day of your life to serene views of the Destin Harbor. Step out onto your balcony to see fishing boats glide through the East Pass on the way to find their catch of the day or dolphins swimming gracefully through the water. These quiet moments are one of our favorite things about winter at Emerald Grande.

The beaches of Northwest Florida are world-renowned for their crystal-clear waters and sugar-white sand beaches. For couples who wish to have photos taken after the ceremony, we offer the option of taking a catamaran ride from the Destin Harbor to a private beach. This gives newlyweds an opportunity to enjoy a moment together to celebrate and offers some of the best photos to look back on. If you’ve always dreamed of having a beach wedding, but don’t want your guests to get sandy, this provides the best of both worlds.

Since the average temperature is cooler in the winter, generally in the mid-60s, we recommend setting out baskets with blankets or pashminas for guests to use during outdoor ceremonies. It’s a nice way to accommodate guests while still enjoying the stunning backdrop.

There’s still time to book your winter wedding. Let us help you plan a day you’ll remember forever on the Emerald Coast. Contact us today for more information.
