Everyone dreams of having a beautiful destination wedding on the beach: white sands, exchanging vows at sunset, and dancing the night away to the sound of waves crashing on the shore. A wedding on the Crystal Coast is every bride’s fantasy, and it doesn’t have to break the bank. The wedding professionals from Umbrellas Wedding & Events have everything you need to know to plan a wedding on a budget.
Try a dress off the rack.
There are many bridal boutiques on the Crystal Coast with a wide array of gorgeous gowns. Find your dream dress and have it tailored as necessary rather than having your dress custom made. Your wallet will thank you.
Be choosy with your venue.
Using a venue for both the ceremony and reception will cost you twice as much. Why come all this way to the beautiful Crystal Coast and miss the opportunity to swap vows by the water? Have your dream beach wedding practically for free, then spend a little extra on a reception space for your guests.
Rent tuxedos as a group.
Unless you’re really attached to the idea of owning a tuxedo for the rest of your life, your groomsmen can rent as a group to save a pretty penny. Many tuxedo rentals offer a substantially smaller group rate.
When planning a honeymoon, simple doesn’t mean boring.
A huge, over-the-top honeymoon may sound exciting, but the shiny idea of an international getaway can be dulled by that 16-hour flight, 4-hour layover, and 2-day jet lag recovery. If you’re getting married on the Crystal Coast, why not stay? Emerald Isle, Beaufort, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, and everywhere in between have gorgeous waterfront resorts and rental properties so you and your new spouse can play house by the water for a week. Browse our list of accommodations to find the perfect oceanfront room, suite, or vacation rental for honeymooning.
