  • Wedding Tips

    The Outer Banks is quickly becoming a popular wedding location.  Destination weddings, however, require a little more planning than a traditional wedding.  These tips will help to get your wedding plans underway. The DATE: Notify your guests early of the wedding date.  Although the standard notification time is six weeks, most guests will need additional time to make travel arrangements.  Include information about accommodations and activities in the area.  The Tourism Department can provide you with visitor information for all your guests free of charge;  contact us at 877-287-7488. The GUESTS: Keep your wedding location in mind when choosing footwear;  high heeled shoes may not be the best choice if attendants are walking on the beach or in soft grass.  Guests who are elderly or disabled may have difficulty.  Be aware, there are no wheelchair accessible beaches in Currituck County. The PARKING: If you choose a beach location, be sure you are near a public parking lot or select a vacation home with an adequate driveway.  Currituck Heritage Park, inns and hotels, churches, restaurants, and other typical wedding locations should have sufficient parking. The PRE-PLAN: Schedule a pre-wedding trip to the Currituck Outer Banks to scope things out.  The Outer Banks Wedding Expo is held in January;  this would be an excellent time to visit and meet local service providers.  It is also a good time to arrange a hair and make-up consultation with a local beautician.
