Which beaches are the best to look into for a wedding…especially if we want to be on the beach? I’m not opposed to being on a grassy area viewing the beach, but on the sand would be great! I’m currently living out of state, so I am not sure where to start! 🙁 Also, if we do a reception on or near the same locale, we want to do as much DIY, so I’m not sure how to looking into all that (cost, what’s allowed/not, etc.). Any help would be SO appreciated!
I’ve heard good things about Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse…but that’s just my start. 🙂

We’re getting married at the Sunset restaurant in Malibu. It’s the only place we found in LA county that does weddings on the beach.
You may also want to look into Paradise Cove also in Malibu. The location is not on the beach, but they do wedding on the pier or on a bluff overlooking the ocean.
Hope this helps.

It’s in San Diego, but Coronado is beautiful! I think it was recently voted the #1 beach in America!

I’m getting married at the Montage in Laguna Beach. It is on the grass overlooking the ocean, but with pictures on the sand.

@Honu_36: Hi Honu! I can’t personally recommend an on the sand site because I know they exist I just don’t know where they are. They are SUPER hard to come by as most sand ceremonies aren’t available on beaches they are usually kept pretty secret. That’s what we wanted too but it was just too much of a hassle and too many restrictions with permits etc. but I would start with the parks and rec for each city.
I can recommend a waterfront ceremony site, it’s not on the sand but it’s right on the water and has a hall attached to it. San Pedro Cabrillo Marina http://www.cymcabrillo.com, it’s got tons of free parking and is all DIY or BYO everything.
