It’s important to consider accommodations for your out-of-town guests who are coming to celebrate your special day. Luckily, real estate agencies and vendors on the Outer Banks are always ready to offer their help and answer questions. Whether you are taking on the task of finding a place for your guests to stay or just hoping to guide them, it’s a good idea to consider having everyone stay close together. Choose from neighboring rental homes, or hotels, motels and inns. Consider making reservations close to the reception site. Give rental managers and hotel managers an idea of how many guests you expect so they can strive to meet your personal and geographic needs.

Tip – Consider hiring a personal chef or caterer not only for the reception, but also to cook meals while you are in your beach house!
