Plan a Perfect Beach Wedding in Virginia Beach VA | Oceanfront Weddings in VA

They say "Virginia is for Lovers" and if you're like most people, you've probably been low-key planning your wedding for a while... No? Was that just me? Ok, well, anyway... A lot of elements go into planning your dream beach wedding, so if you didn't finalize your plans at 13, there are a few things you should probably be considering:


This is pretty self-explanatory... Obviously your wedding can be whatever you want it to be - traditional, simple, casual, eclectic, a personalized combination of all of the above, perhaps... More on this to follow.


Location, location, location. So, obviously, you're probably here because I said "Beach Wedding" and it set your little heart all a-flutter... But "Beach Wedding" can be translated into several different scenarios. Let's break this down...

Beach Wedding: On the sand!

Admittedly, this option might seem obvious... it's when you get married, on the beach. But still, a little bit of planning is involved here. You have options. You can have an intimate beach ceremony, where all you need is a couple, a marriage license, and an officiant (and as long as there are under 150 guests, you don’t need a permit or reservation! That being said, without a reservation your choice of spot isn't guaranteed and it's a good idea to find a backup spot, just in case). If you are looking for a little more structure for you and your guests, you can find more information about getting a PERMIT here.

Now you know how to plan the perfect beach wedding in Virginia Beach. Pretty easy, right?
