    5 Creative Ideas for your Hilton Head Beach Wedding

    Did you get engaged over the holidays? Then you’re embarking on the exciting wedding planning process. Here at Palmetto Dunes, we host many Hilton Head beach weddings every year and love to help our brides and grooms plan for their special day.

    We’ve compiled some really fun and creative beach wedding ideas we’ve come across on Pinterest to help inspire you as you begin planning your nuptials.

    Beach-Themed Cookies

    TrendHunter shares these adorable beach-themed cookies, which can be served at a beach wedding, bridal shower or rehearsal dinner. We absolutely love the tiny flip-flops next to the beach waves -- all created with icing!

    Seashell Cupcakes

    Another cute and probably easier-to-make dessert to serve at your beach wedding are these seashell cupcakes. Simply use blue icing topped with a small seashell.

    Handprint Photo

    Here’s a clever photo you can ask your wedding photographer to shoot on the big day. The bride and groom literally “make their mark” in the sand with their handprints to capture on camera. For added fun, place your wedding ring on the wedding fingerprint in the sand -- just don’t lose them!

    Flip-Flop Basket

    Invite your guests “kick off their heels” and don some sand-appropriate footwear in the form of flip-flops with this cute basket. Place near the dance floor or in front of the aisle.

    Mason Jar Decor

    This idea comes from a wedding we hosted at the oceanfront Dunes House. This simple mason jar with wedding flowers hangs from a simple garden hook at the entrance to the ceremony. Simple, but elegant!

    Be sure to follow our Hilton Head Weddings board on Pinterest for even more great beach wedding ideas.

    Favorite Tennis QuotesSometimes quotes from famous folks – and even not so famous ones – can inspire, make us laugh and remind us that we’re not alone in the struggles and adventures of life. Because tennis is near and dear to our hearts here at Palmetto Dunes, where we have 25 tennis courts and tennis players here nearly every day of the year, we picked some of our favorite tennis quotes of all time to share. Enjoy!

    “The serve was invented so that the net could play.” – Bill Cosby

    “Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquility.”– Billie Jean King

    “I fear no one, but respect everyone.” – Roger Federer

    “I play each point like my life depends on it.” – Rafael Nadal

    “If you don’t practice, you don’t deserve to win.” – Andre Agassi

    “The older I get, the better I used to be.” – John McEnroe

    “Tennis just a game, family is forever.” – Serena Williams

    Tennis is mostly mental. Of course, you must have a lot of physical skill, but you can't play tennis well and not be a good thinker. You win or lose the match before you even go out there.” – Venus Williams

    “I only ever run when there's some point to it - say, if it's in a game of tennis.” – Rafael Nadal

    “Be bold. If you're going to make an error, make a doozy, and don't be afraid to hit the ball.” – Billie Jean King

    “I'll let the racket do the talking.” – John McEnroe

    And who hasn’t heard this one? “Love is nothing in tennis, but in life it's everything.”

    George Fazio Course Named South Carolina Golf Course of the Year for 2014

    Three-Ball. Hat Trick. Trifecta. No matter what you call it — if it happens in sports, three of almost anything is reason to celebrate.

    We’re excited to share with you that we’ve experienced our own three-peat after the S.C. Board of Directors of the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) named our George Fazio golf course the 2014 South Carolina Golf Course of the Year. It’s the third and final of our three Hilton Head golf courses to receive this prestigious designation.

    In 2003, the Robert Trent Jones oceanfront course was named South Carolina Golf Course of the Year, while the Arthur Hills golf course received the honor in 2009. All three have also been rated four stars or more by Fodor’s Golf Digest Places to Play.

    “The award-winning George Fazio course embodies the values we cherish at Palmetto Dunes – offering year-round championship golf in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry,” says Brad Marra, vice president of resort operations for Palmetto Dunes. “Many golfers regard it as the island’s most challenging championship course.”

    The Fazio golf course demands a combination of long play and precise golf shots. From the 432-yard 1st hole to the 462-yard 18th hole, the Fazio course is the only par-70 golf course on Hilton Head Island. Its long par-4s are beset with bunkers and water hazards. The Fazio course plays 6,239 yards from the middle white tees.

    In October, the Fazio Course will be in the running for National Golf Course of the Year.

    Book a tee time at the Fazio course and try it out for yourself! For more information about Hilton Head golf packages or group golf on Hilton Head Island, visit www.palmettodunes.com.

    See you soon on the Dunes Buggy!
