    Yes! How romantic! A wedding under the stars with the waves crashing in the background. : (10 votes)

    Maybe. It would depend if fans were accessible and how many guests we could fit. : (3 votes)

    No! It would be hot and humid and just gross. : (3 votes)

    The only party I’ve ever been to on the beach was a Bar Mitzvah, and it was a lot of fun!

    1. I think it depends on where you live. I’m in Fl, and would not like to go to a wedding outside in those months. It’s just too hot here.

    2. I have no idea how you’d prevent that. Just hope it’s not windy that day!

    3. It would be hard on the elderly. If you have any wheel chair bound guests that would especially be a problem.

    Where do you live?

    And what about a venue that has access to the beach, but also has a level flooring area for older people?

    I’d like it, but not in August. Then it’s way too hot, and if there’s a land breeze everyone will cook and get eaten alive by the sand fleas and greenhead flies. That would probably be my biggest concern.

    Where do you live that a place will do that for you? I’m in NJ too and had a really hard time plannig a wedding at the shore. We did it on the Bay and the reception at a yacht club instead.

    Cape May beaches had a lot of issues when I was looking, and one event planner who seemed to run the town. No chairs, no electricity, permits for parking and not more than 50 people,etc. This was in 2008, so I’m glad to see a few things have changed.

    Have you been to one down there on the beach? If you can make it work and its something you’d love, why not?
