Maybe you can find some kind of outdoor pavilion on the water that you can rent.  I don’t know where you are from, but along the coastline here in CT I can think of several places like this, and you could bring in whatever food/drink you wanted!  The down side would be you couldn’t just crash (sleep) there, obviously, but I think it would def. be laid back and fun!

Oh, so its probably a little more developed down there? Well, good luck finding something!  Maybe if the renters don’t know there is going to be a party- I mean, I’m not suggesting you lie or anything, but even at a laidback reception/party, hopefully your guests will be well-behaved, and if anything does get broken/spilled on/etc. I’m sure you will have paid a deposit, right?  Or they’ll have you cover the damages?  Sorry, dont know too much about this kind of thing, but I’m sure it’ll be wonderful, no matter what!

Call local cottage rental companies and start from there. FH and I considered that route, but it was considerably more expensive than the other options.
There are people who will rent out their mansions *because this is what you need for a party of 50-75* Also consider incedentals that might go into that cost- like renting port a lets because the house doesn’t have enough bathrooms.

Just look at all your options- We’re getting married down in St Augustine, FL and are doing a beach wedding in April and the reception will be at a hotel right on the beach… so no one has to worry about transport from one place to another 🙂

Hi Ashley,

 I’m getting married on the beach in Malibu in California. My FH and I found a beautiful spot on the beach that is part of a state park, we are having the ceremony there. The park is open to having receptions, but we decided to have the reception at a restaurant that is maybe 10 miles away. We have around 80 guests.

I would suggest looking into restaurants and parks in the area to see what other option may be available beyond a beach house. =)

Hi! I just moved from Hampton a few months ago! I second 711beachbride on the parks! We found an awesome facility through the parks and recs dept here in Charlotte. It was cheap, had no caterer restrictions and really gave us the opportunity to plan a laid back feeling wedding. I tell people all the time that I want people to feel more like they are in our living room than at a wedding. Good luck and let me know if you need any more help. I still have friends in the area!
