Well, darling, I would figure the number one thing would be to secure a location. You may want to find out whether the beach areas you are thinking about are state/business/or personally owned. If it’s state, all you have to do is a little research and find out where to buy a permit. 

Do you also want a reception, or are you just planning on having a ceremony? There are a million ways to go from here. I suggest you think of the broad concepts to help you start.

I have no experience in this, but I would think to just go to the city or town hall of the town you want to be married in and ask them information about being married on the public beach.

It sounds like you already kind of know what you want, but take a min to sit with your Fiance and physically write down a list of “must haves” and “don’t wants” for your wedding. 

Then, once you’re both on the same page, go in this order:

1) Book the space (or get the permit)

2) Make a guest list/ask attendants

3) Find an officiant

4) Decide for sure if you’re ceremony only or if you will provide some refreshement (even cake and punch is doable for that number on a tight budget). Research as needed.

5) Then worry about the details (seating, decorations, invitations, dress, rings etc).
