How to Plan an Unforgettable Wedding in Myrtle Beach

Updated on January 11, 2015

The idyllic scenery alone is reason enough to plan a wedding in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You can select from botanical gardens, resorts, beach, and other unique locations to hold an unforgettable wedding. Planning for this day is overwhelming to most brides. However, knowing certain information will help decrease your stress.

Set the Date

Set the date of your wedding far enough in advance to ensure that you have time to arrange the wedding correctly, but keep an open mind until you check with the venues. Do not order the invitations just yet, as you also need to check with the venues to learn which one can work you in on that day.

Create a Guest List

Create a guest list, as you will need to know how many people will be at the wedding or reception. Not Everyone on the list will show in most cases, but this provides you with a solid idea of how to proceed with your other plans.

Select and Reserve the Venue

Select the venue that suits the picture you have of your wedding day. Do gardens appeal to your sense of style and romance? Check into setting Brookgreen Gardens as your wedding venue. It is not far from Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Different rental options are available. Call 1-800-849-1931 ext. 6017 for further information.

Resorts are plentiful in Myrtle Beach and are ideal for an upscale wedding event. An example of this venue idea is The Caravelle Resort. This resort is an oceanfront oasis for relaxation and entertainment. It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. This resort offers ideal setups ranging from intimate to opulent weddings. It will arrange receptions from a small group of 10 up to a large group of 250 people. Treat your guests with accommodations complete with Jacuzzi suites. For further information, call 888-974-3801.

Beach Weddings

Beach weddings are possible when you know the local rules about them. The city does not allow Commercially produced weddings on public beaches. However, the city does allow small personal ceremonies on the public beaches. There are private sections of the beaches where commercial weddings are allowed. Check with local authorities for further information about regulations on beach weddings.

Ripley’s Aquarium is a unique location you may consider that is available in Myrtle Beach. The expert staff members will assist you in planning a dream wedding. Contact the aquarium at 800-734-8888 for further information.

These are just a sampling of the venues available in and around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Certain venues such as the resort will have wedding planners to help you with all your details. In other cases, you may wish to hire your own wedding planner.

Dress Shopping and Ordering Invitations

Since you will have to order you dress, it is wise to start shopping for one as soon as possible after you set the date and venue. This also goes for your bridesmaids’ dresses. This will involve you analyzing your budget and deciding on who will stand up with you.

Often, at the same place you order your dresses, you can order invitations. Order enough invitations to send everyone on the guest list one. Do this early enough that you can receive an accurate head count to firm up your reception plans.

Tuxedos or Suits for the Men

Decide on tuxedos or suits for the men in the wedding. Certain informal functions do not require either one. This is a personal decision on your part on how formal you want your wedding day. However, the men will need to rent or buy their attire so this does need prior planning. Certain bridal shops also offer this service.

Flowers and Photos

Flowers and photos are another crucial element in weddings. Work through the bridal shop to locate the right places to deal with for these elements. The staff there will point you in the right direction. A wedding planner also helps to take care of these details if you hire one.

Marriage License

You will need to apply for a marriage license in South Carolina for you marriage to be binding. The main center for this purpose is the Government & Justice Center in Conway, SC at 1301 2nd Avenue. Call for further information at 843-915-5370.
