How can you get a permit to have a wedding on the beach?

April 11th, 2010

I know people can get married on the beach but you have to have a permit, now it would be nice to get one from someone who has a private beach because they let you do a lot more than what a public beach would, so does anyone have any info on people who allow weddings on their beach property or how to get a straight up permit?

    you need to contact the towns chamber of commerce. They will supply the permit.

    Permits are only for public beaches. Contact City Hall and they will direct you where to get those.

    For a private beach you have to contact the owners. All hotels will have a 1-800 or you can talk with the manager.

    If the private beach you are eyeing if part of somebody’s house then pop a note in their mailbox. Something flattering to butter them up, then a decently round figure to overcome any hesitation they may have about 100 strangers on their property. The worst they can say is “NO”.

    You might want to find a private enterprise that throws beach weddings. It is not as simple as getting permission to use someone’s beach.

    o Will there be elderly or disabled attendees?

    o At any wedding, someone will have to use the bathroom.

    o Will there be a place the bride can change into her wedding dress?

    o Seating? Shade?
