Plan Your Hilton Head Wedding With Palmetto Dunes

Hilton Head weddingWe understand that planning a wedding is stressful, especially if it’s a destination wedding far away from where you live. No worries. Our wedding services staff can help. 

Palmetto Dunes is a popular place for Hilton Head weddings and earlier this year the users of WeddingWire.com voted Palmetto Dunes tops in Hilton Head for both catering and as a wedding/reception venue. Here’s what some of our recent brides have had to say: 

  • “The wedding day went off without a hitch… Literally there was nothing that went wrong on our entire day (besides one of the groomsmen realizing he left his suit at home!).”
  • “We fell in love with Palmetto Dunes the minute we saw it! We got married barefoot on the beach and had the reception at the Dunes House following the ceremony. Everything was outside on the beach! What a beautiful location to get married … We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for that perfect beach wedding!”
  • “Our wedding in Palmetto Dunes … was as magical a day as we had dreamed. We had a very personal sunset ceremony with one of the most scenic views imaginable. We highly recommend the staff at Palmetto Dunes Resort.” 

Here at Palmetto Dunes, we have any wedding venue you might desire: indoor, outdoor or overlooking the ocean. We built our Dunes House specifically for weddings and other special events, though our resort guests also enjoy it as a beach-side dining destination. You can also choose from the Shelter Cove PavilionCenter Court Conference Center or even a courtside ceremony at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center

We’ve planned more weddings than we can count. We know where to find the potential snags and how to deftly skirt them and can connect you with any kind of vendor you might need from getting your marriage certificate to finding a minister. We also have the catering facilities to accommodate any number of guests.

Finally, our goal is make sure you’re relaxed. After all, we’re a resort. It’s what we do. Enjoy some tennis or golf with your bridal party or out of town guests while you’re here, too. With our help, even as the bride, all you’ll have to do is arrive on time. Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort will sweat all of the details and then some.

For us, planning weddings at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island is a piece of cake …wedding cake! Contact us for more information about planning a Hilton Head wedding at Palmetto Dunes.

Relaxing is a rare commodity these days, but a visit to Palmetto Dunes can give it to you in spades. Whether a long bike ride or canoeing through a calm lagoon brings about peace of mind or you’d rather kick back and let someone massage away the stress, we’ve got something for you.

Here at Palmetto Dunes, we offer a number of spa packages for those who are attracted to the relaxation offered by the lure of facials, salt scrubs and massages with a little activity mixed in.

If you’d like to combine romance with your relaxation try one of these two options:

Our Anniversary Celebration package lets you celebrate your years of togetherness with a getaway to the beauty that is Hilton Head Island. Enjoy 7 days and 6 nights in an ocean view villa so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Take in Hilton Head’s 80 miles of paved bike trails with bike rentals and paddle through our 11-mile saltwater lagoon system by kayak. Unwind with an individual or couples massage, as well as a luxurious facial treatment or therapeutic body scrub. Then get the blood pumping and see if you can best your significant other on the tennis courts.

Or if you’re just beginning your life together, consider a Mini Moon at Palmetto Dunes. Many famous folks like Prince William and Princess Kate are opting to take an abbreviated honeymoon that consists of a long weekend right after the ceremony, saving the longer getaway for later. Our Mini Moon includes 3 nights at the resort, a $100 gift certificate for a romantic dinner, an individual or couples massage, facial treatment or body scrub, one-day bike rental (try pedaling our 3 miles of beach), double kayak rental through the lagoon and two hours of tennis court time daily. Choose to be as active or relaxed as you want with our Mini Moon!

If it’s not a romantic getaway you seek, but just a relaxed adventure, try our Sun ‘N Fun Island Escape Package. It packs in active relaxation and plenty of spa time. The package offers 4 days and 3 nights accommodations, one round of golf per person (don’t stress about your performance, just relax and enjoy the beautiful views!), one day bike rentalssingle kayak rentals to explore the lagoon, two hours of tennis time daily, a signature massage at Spa Soleil, facial treatment or body scrub, and as many beautiful views as you can take in!

So however you like to de-stress and relax, we’ll find a way to make it happen here at Palmetto Dunes. Call us at 866.380.1778 to book your getaway.

Paradise Found - A Wedding at Palmetto Dunes

We can't say enough about the wonderful job done by Nicole Guy and the Palmetto Dunes staff! We looked all over Hilton Head Island for the perfect location for our destination wedding, and Palmetto Dunes had the most beautiful and well cared for homes around. Nicole was able to help us put together the relaxed celebration that we dreamed of but didn't have the experience to plan. With the help of the Palmetto Dunes team we were able to enjoy the time with our friends and family rather than stressing out. And the food was amazing! Chris put together a dream menu that had everybody coming back for more. In fact, Nicole was even able to share one of the appetizer recipes with us so we could incorporate it into our first Thanksgiving dinner as a married couple. Palmetto Dunes treated us like family every step of the way. When we needed to make last minute changes to our honeymoon plans, they arranged for us to return to the home where we were married. It was a dream wedding and perfect honeymoon, and it was all spent at Palmetto Dunes!

Palmetto Dunes recognizes the importance of incorporating what's important to you on your special day. They take the time to talk through all the details and really get to know what will make your day just right. For example, Nicole Guy suggested a raw bar during the cocktail hour, which was a hit with our family and friends. We planned to spend the day helping set up for the event, but upon our arrival Nicole sent us on our way as she was taking care of it for us. She even offered to help me adjust my wedding dress just before the walk down the beach. Thank goodness for Palmetto Dunes and Nicole!

Beach Wedding to Remember

I contacted Nicole at Palmetto Dunes Catering and Events seeking to plan a destination beach wedding at the Dunes House that would be simple and care free. Our goal was to never lose the true reason of why we were planning this event and desired to seek minimal input from family and friends as to how we coordinated our special day. Nicole and I managed to pull off an amazing and breathtaking wedding for me and my fiance from afar in less than 4 months and in budget! When I say care free I was not exaggerating either. My fiance and I managed to incorporate a 60-person wedding during the week his family had planned to simply visit Hilton Head Island for a week's worth of vacation. With Nicole's help we managed to surprise my fiance's family of 33 the week of with a wedding they have yet to forget and also get the 30 friends and family from my side down to HHI at the same time. We can't say enough about how Nicole and her staff managed for us additional accommodation, vendor recommendations, the catering, and small decorating touches that made this wedding many of our friends favorite wedding to date.

Dream Wedding at Palmetto Dunes!

On October 31st, 2009 (yes, Halloween) my husband and I got married at the Dunes House in Palmetto Dunes. We live near Charlotte, NC, so naturally I was a little concerned when we decided to plan a destination wedding. We had been to Hilton Head together many times, but never thought about planning a wedding, vendors to use, etc. Fortunately, Palmetto Dunes (specifically Ann and Nicole) were there to help! They made the process seamless and easy! We rented a beautiful house with some close friends, played golf at the fabulous Robert Trent Jones course and, most importantly, got to share our special weekend with the ones we love in Hilton Head. We had PERFECT weather (a warm 80 degrees in October, not a cloud in the sky and a slight breeze). Overall, I can honestly say Palmetto Dunes gave my husband and I our dream wedding on the beach! We couldn't have been happier and can't wait to come back to visit the place where we started our lives together!
