does anyone think this is bad?

Some previous people who had weddings at my venue had issues with this, now the venue requires that you hire security to keep the “crashers” away, might be something to look into.


Good luck, Nicole

Would people really be rude enough to crash it? Maybe… but if there was a group of like 10+ people and someone dressed in white I would steer clear!

@cdpslh913059487:  It looks like a very lovely area. The trouble with the dock is it’s a small area. If you use it you’d want it to be a fairly short ceremony, and not too many people. My feeling is 30 or less people should be no problem. So long as it’s short and not too many people, I think fishers and other people will respect you space.

Another alternative is to get married on the land by the water, where there’s more space. It might even be possible to reserve one of those shelters?

I think most people would be respectful of the wedding and let you have your space.

My brother and his wife got married on a “dock” at a local state park. It was free and there was the possibility of people walking up. But I found that people could see from a distance what was going on and no one walked up and “crashed” the ceremony. Seriously, who is going to see a wedding ceremony going on and walk right through it with their fishing pole and takle box.

If you have a small guest count and a short ceremony (I assume people will be standing on the dock and not have chairs) I think it’s a good option and provides a beautiful backdrop for photos.

I wouldn’t do it because there is no where to set up chairs for the guests.

I think it looks lovely! My cousin got married on a public beach where anyone could walk around and people were very respectful. No big deal!

I don’t think it’s a horrible idea.. and free is always nice, but where would you put the chairs? Having people stand is pretty rude [at least here in the us anyway].
