Planning Your LBI Wedding? Don’t Forget These Three Things!

Planning Your LBI Wedding? Don’t Forget These Three Things!

Newly engaged or helping to plan a loved one’s Long Beach Island wedding? Our island has everything you need to give your favorite couple the wedding day they deserve! Here are some tips to help you navigate the process:

1. Ceremony on the Beach? Plan Ahead!

Many towns require a permit to have a large gathering with a setup on the beach or other public space. Inquire within the township that you plan to hold the ceremony for individual details. Some of your guests may require Beach Wheels (wheelchairs with large wheels for the sand). These special chairs can be rented by request (ask for more information about these when you inquire about a permit). Additionally, be sure to stay prepared with an additional location in the event of rain!

2. Shop Small & Hire Local

Working with small businesses provides you with the contact availability you need when planning a wedding. Being able to speak with your vendors directly makes a huge difference! You can find a ton of local vendors by participating in the LBI Wedding Roadshow on April 22nd, 2018 (a Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce Event). More information here:

3. Keep Local Event Weekends In Mind

Wedding Season coincides with the most beautiful (and busiest) time of the year on LBI. Be conscious of the following dates so you can plan accordingly for your wedding weekend.
