Countdown to Marital Bliss

The ideal amount of time for planning an Outer Banks wedding is at least 12 months. The more time you have to plan, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to secure your top choices for venues and vendors. Plus, stretching the planning over the course of a year can make the weeks prior to the OBX wedding less stressful. The following timeline is our suggestion on how to spend the days and months leading up to your big day. If you don’t have a year to plan, don’t worry.

Picking a Date & Obtaining Your License

You’ve booked your rental home and now it’s time to get down to the business of planning the day and time-line of your wedding ceremony.

If you are staying a week, your check-in is probably on a Saturday or Sunday. Most couples choose to get their marriage license on Monday and plan for the ceremony Tuesday-Friday. However, since the Dare County Register of Deeds office is in Manteo, located in the Dare Justice Center at 962 Marshall Collins Drive, it is possible to secure the license Monday morning (Hours 8:30am – 4pm unless it is a holiday) and be married that evening but it could make for a stressful day! The process at the Register of Deeds office is usually under an hour but make sure you have all needed documentation which can be found at the Dare County website. Or call 252.475.9228. Read more »
