Thinking of a Hilton Head Island Beach Wedding? Here’s a Great Plan

Beach weddings are very popular. In fact, hundreds of people flock to Hilton Head Island each year to have a ceremony in the sand and celebrate their wedding. While a beach ceremony sounds like heaven; it brings with it a list of worries that simply can’t be controlled. Of course everyone hopes and even prays for a perfect, sunny day free from pesky, glaring, tourists, mosquitos and of course..rain; but we all know that you will not truly know exactly what you will get until the special day arrives.

Although nothing about an outside beach wedding is guaranteed, there are some perks. You will need to get a permit to have a beach wedding on Hilton Head Island. The good news is that it is free! But you do have to request the permit 30 days in advance of your wedding date. The Island gets many applications for weddings. In 2015, Hilton Head issued 302 beach wedding permits. They also get a lot of last minute requests. “We try to respond immediately,” says facilities business assistant Mary Ellenn Tschupp. “But we don’t encourage it. We do try to ensure that nobody is going to be on top of anybody.”

Another great thing about beach weddings is that there are not as many set in stone rules and traditions to follow. You can plan to do whatever you want to do without all the typical pomp and circumstance. People expect it to be more relaxed, simply because it is outside and at the beach.

A huge consideration for a beach wedding on Hilton Head Island is the weather. Not only do you have to consider the fact that it may rain, but you also do not want it to be too hot. A hot, humid day does not fare well for a great wedding situation for the bridal party, the guests, or even the flowers! You will definitely need a Plan B if you are thinking of having a beach wedding.
