5 Tips for Planning a Myrtle Beach Wedding

He finally asked – and of course, you said “Yes!” You couldn’t wait to tell your parents and make it “social media official.” You’ve already chosen your color scheme and started determining a budget. And now it’s time to select your date and book the perfect Myrtle Beach wedding venue!


Consider choosing a venue that offers:


Friendly & Professional Staff: Look for a venue with an expert event team that you get good vibes from right away. Sit down and tell them your vision – they should be willing to hear all of your ideas outright, not matter what they are. If it seems like what you want doesn’t fit one of their standard packages or the budget you’ve set up, they should be highly responsive and quickly suggest alternatives that will fit your needs.


An Oceanfront Location: While there may appear to be many “beach hotels” along The Grand Strand, there are fewer true hotels on the beach. If your heart is set on having the sun, sand and waves of Myrtle Beach as the backdrop for your ceremony and reception, but sure to see the venue for yourself or on Google maps before booking to ensure you’ll enjoy easy beach access and unobstructed views.


Customizable Catering Packages: Standard menus are a good place to start, but look for a catering staff that will partner with you to strike a balance between the impressive and the practical. Sometimes even substituting or subtracting just one or two items from the menu can make a huge difference in your final cost.


On-site Wedding Coordinators: The best Myrtle Beach wedding venues offer dedicated event staff to walk with you through the entire process, from the first pre-planning discussions through the final dance of your big day. These staff should be experts in what they do, so ask them plenty of questions up front before signing a contract for the venue.


Affordable Accommodations for Your Guests: If planning a destination wedding, keep in mind that your guests will already be spending money to get to the beach. Be considerate of their time and costs by selecting a hotel venue for your reception and arranging a discounted group room block (usually 10 hotel rooms or more) in advance for their convenience. Bonus: Look for a resort that offers convenient amenities such as complimentary wireless Internet, swimming pools with hot tubs and an on-site restaurant! 


Find all of these features and more at Prince Resort at Cherry Grove Pier. Located in two towers, one directly on the water and the other just across the street, this oceanfront resort offers three reception venues for your dream wedding in Myrtle Beach!
