If the idea of sharing your special day in a gorgeous event home appeals to you, the Outer Banks has an abundance to offer. You can take your pick from a wide array of beautiful homes that are available from Corolla to Ocracoke. These oceanfront homes are built and designed specifically with weddings and receptions in mind. Many feature large decks, spacious gathering areas, gazebos, and wooden walkways that meander over the dunes to the beach. Receptions can easily be held next to your private pool or indoors. Industrial-sized kitchens and large gathering areas both inside and outside make event homes a hit with caterers. Game rooms, wet bars and other features enhance the wedding experience. Occupancy limitations apply, so be sure to check with property management companies.

OBX Wedding Accommodations

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.

Rental Homes

Rental homes are a great choice if you are getting married on the beach. Couples can rent several homes close together for family and friends. Many larger homes have 12 or more bedrooms, dual kitchens and can accommodate multi-family groups.

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!
