Hello!We recently got engaged and are now trying to plan a beach wedding from Atlanta for July 2010. I have been looking at different places, and can't quite find the perfect place. I would love to have the wedding beachside and a reception either beachside as well or somewhere that overlooks the beach. I looked into The King and Prince, but I think that it is going to be too expensive. We are paying for the majority of our wedding, and I just don't want to start out our lives together in debt (if possible :)). Any ideas?? Thanks so much! :)

The casino is a great place to have a reception! Very inexpensive too. Contact the Glynn county parks department for rates.

There really isn't much beachside on SSI. The only other thought is by the lighthouse. There's a beautiful gazebo there and also the lighthouse property has a beautiful new reception building. If you need additional info, please call me or email.

Also, jekyll Island has many locations on the beach.

Congrats! We are getting married in Sea Island in June 2010!

There is a little Inn that is right across the street from the beach called the Sea Gate Inn. They own an empty lot that faces the beach. We have reserved rooms there for our wedding, and when we spoke to them, they said that if we wanted to have the wedding in a tent across the street on their empty lot, that they offer that to people who reserve all 24ish rooms in at the Inn for weddings. We already had a venue, so we werent able to take advantage, but it sounds like it might be exactly what you are looking for. You could get married on the beach and then walk up to the tent and still be right on the water.

There is another Inn right down the street from the Sea Gate (Ocean Gate or something Ocean) that has a top floor open air room/patio that they allow people who rent out the place to use for weddings. Same idea... you could get married on the beach and then walk back across the street to the Inn for the reception.

Hope this helps!! Good Luck!
