Not sure where your getting married but many require you to have a permit to use their beach for a wedding. I was going to have a beach wedding in spring lake but went a different direction because of all the limitations.  Many beaches do NOT allow any chair set up etc. so make sure you call the townships to verify they allow that before you go booking etc.  Spring lake you just have your party show up, no chair or arches allowed.  Belmar you need to pay for a permit, you may use chairs and aches but you only have a half hour to remove everything from the beach you also need to pay for beach access for each guest.  Make sure you have a back up plan if its pouring rain especially in September.   Belmar also has a gazebo againt the lake it’s actually really pretty That you can rent/permit. 

Ultimately we went a different route because it wasn’t worth renting $500 in chairs plus $200 for an arch and then flowers on top of that since if it rained we were out all of that money and we would have to pay our venue an additional $500 to host the ceremony.  It did ending up raining on our wedding day and we were both thankful that we had a church wedding instead.
