I’ve been around many public weddings. Most people are pretty respectful and would not sit in your seats or drink your drinks. You can’t shoo them away though. If you want the beach (and cheap rental!) that’s kinda what you deal with.

I’m local to San Diego and just keep in mind that October is usually one of the nicest months of the year (weather wise) so if you’re on a beach on a weekend there absolutely will be beach goers, bikini wearers, events, parties, kayakers etc. If you have questions  let me know, happy to give insight (not sure if you or fiance are from here or planning from out of town)

I had our wedding in the park where we met!

 

i remember being worried about some of these things, and a moment thinking: oh no, what if an ex boyfriend is in this park right now?!

 

NONE of those things happened. Everyone was extremely respectful and kept their distance. We had our photos in the park and no one talked to us and everyone in the public was lovely.

 

We also had a food truck and I think I might have heard that one group from the public tried to buy food but the truck said it was for a private function. Honestly, I don’t even know if that actually happened, I think I just heard it third or fourth hand.

 

I was worried about so many of these little things and it all turned out perfectly.

I got married in an outdoor public space – and in the middle of London no less – and whilst it was kind of U shaped, the public could still wander up. Nobody did. A few people stood and watched at the other end of the U, and our DOC planted staff there to ask people to wait.
