We are moving to Texas from Wisconsin in August, but I need to start pinning down a location for our wedding in Corpus Christi for June, 2013. We'd appreciate any advice for locations, preferably a beach wedding! We don't have the option of taking a look around;), so some low-cost ideas would be wonderful.

Hi! My fiance and I are getting married on the beach in Port Aransas. It is only $35 to get a beach peemit. we are staying and having our reception at the beachgate condos. since we booked ten rooms we are getting the reception hall for free. getting married on the beach can be very inexpensive if you just look around and do some research.

Texas is a great place to have a wedding and Port Aransas is perfect for beach weddings. There are some wonderful venues in Port A that you can have a inexpensive but beautiful wedding reception such as Seashell Village, Sea Gull Condos, the Community Center and even the Newport Golf Course and Cinnamon Shore. I've helped with many a destination wedding and can certainly help create exactly what you want within your budget. I live in the Port A area as well and am very familiar with all that it offers.

I don't know if you've considered it yet, but I just got married at the Water Gardens on June 2nd, it's a really pretty large circular fountain with grass in the middle of it, and it's very close to the ocean (can't see it exactly from there though.. I wanted a beach wedding as well, but when I started thinking about having guests walking through sand in heels/relatively nice clothes, I vetoed that idea). It was $200 for the permit, had B&T Rents do the chairs & arch and set everything up (I think we paid them $450 for 70 chairs and an arch, and set up/delivery/take down?). We had our reception at the American Bank Center in the Selena Rotunda, which is literally right next to the Water Gardens, and has a REALLY awesome view of the bay and really really good food if you use their in-house caterer Centerplate. Everything was included, which was really nice: tables, linens, chairs, the most expensive catering option (which isn't in their "menu" anymore), security, dance floor, cake cutting, waiters/waitresses, etc., and we paid $3,225 for 75 people, which is really pretty decent. We added a couple of kegs and a certain amount of mixed drinks, and ended up paying about $4200 altogether for it, but there were cheaper food options.

Hope this helps you a bit! :)
