Myrtle Beach Wedding FAQs
“Can I get married on the beach?”
The city of Myrtle Beach does allow for ceremonies to take place on the beach. However, only non-commercial weddings are permitted on public beaches. This means that some photographers, caterers, and other paid professionals are forbidden in many locations along the shoreline.
Since the majority of the beach in Myrtle is public, you cannot directly reserve a spot to hold your ceremony. If a person happens to already be enjoying the beach in that location, you may ask them to consider a temporary move while you hold your ceremony, but they are not required to grant your request.
“Do we need a permit to get married on the beach?”
You do not need any permits if you are holding a non-commercial wedding.
“If choosing to stay with Together Resorts for my wedding, what should we expect?”
Together Resorts offers private indoor and outdoor reception space for up to 70 guests, guaranteeing your wedding will go as planned regardless of weather. Our resort can sleep up to 70 guests allowing for ample room for the bride’s and groom’s family and friends to stay in, offering the ultimate team bonding experience.
“What is the weather like throughout the year?”
The weather in Myrtle Beach, like most southern destinations, can be a tad unpredictable at times. However, there is the average temperature high of 75°F and a nighttime low of 54°F year round. In the summer months, Myrtle Beach’s temperature is known to rise near 100°F and sometimes higher. During the fall expect the weather to still average a high of 77°F and an average high of 75°F during the spring months.
“What is the best time of year for a beach wedding?”
Since the weather is primarily sunny and warm here in Myrtle Beach, there really isn’t a bad time of year to hold your beach wedding. However, during the summer months, Myrtle is known to be one of the biggest family vacation and tourist spots in the country, making the city overfilled with visitors from all over the world. The best time to hold your beach wedding would be during the fall and spring months. During these times of the year, there isn’t a huge tourist crowd like in the summer months, but there still is the warm crisp feeling of summer in the air.
“What if there is inclement weather during my ceremony?”
No matter what the percent chance of rain may say on the day of your wedding, the weather is unpredictable and there is always the chance for a random afternoon storm. Being prepared for any inclement weather that could potentially pause or move your ceremony to a different location is something every wedding party should be prepared to handle.
“What is the best way to travel with a wedding dress?”
If you are traveling to Myrtle Beach and need to take a plane you should directly discuss with your airline carrier on any arrangements necessary for transportation of your gown!
