South Carolina Beach Weddings

Beach weddings are popular in South Carolina during the late spring, summer, and early fall – when it's warm – and they offer an alternative to traditional indoor weddings. All beaches in South Carolina are public, but some are not accessible unless you have a boat or special permission to enter the gates. Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and Fripp Island are three of the most well-known gated beaches in South Carolina.

South Carolina's public beaches are equally lovely and include Sullivan's Island, Hilton Head, Folly Beach. Keep in mind restrictions set by the local governments regarding parking, alcohol, and fireworks. Also be sure to consult tide charts for South Carolina when planning – a high tide could leave little room for guests!

  • Edisto Beach weddings - Colleton County

  • Folly Beach weddings - Charleston County
    No cost to use the beach, although if more than 25 people will be present, you must obtain a permit from the Folly Beach Public Safety Office. Folly's municipal clerk can serve as an officiant if desired. The Pelican Watch Shelter is a Charleston County Park facility on the southwest end of the beach which can accommodate up to 200 guests. It allows for a beach wedding with more parking and a shelter for the reception.
