I am getting married on the beach in Garden City in June. We were planning on having the reception at the beach house we are staying in, but had to get a smaller one and now we don't have enough room. I really would like to find a place in Garden City (or close) that would have a place for an ocean front reception. For example, a deck area at a decent restaurant or cafe. I live in Ohio and have no clue where to start. Any suggestions?

There is a Holiday Inn in Surfside, same beach about 5 miles North, that would fit all your requirements. I jsut got married at a beach house in Garden City. I know EVERY house on S. Waccmaw and the layout of most of the yards (if you wanted to try and find a diffenrt house that maybe did not accomidate inside but a tent outside perhaps or like what I did i had my reception UNDER the house as all of them are on stilts. Let me know some more details, the house you are staiynig in and if you need any other reccomedations. I'd be more than happy to help!

Thank you for the replies! I didn't realize that I had received messages so I am sorry for not responding sooner! Our wedding will be on June 1st with between 20-30 guests. We are staying in the Sunbriar which has a deck on the roof, but no yard. I am thinking that we might just set up tables on the beach right outside of the house. Since there won't be that many guests it won't take up a lot of room. I don't know though, I am still undecided as of yet, so keep those suggestions coming! Thanks! :)

Hi! We are planning on having our wedding in Garden City at a beach house. We have been looking at ones with backyards, and I was wondering if there were any houses @merideth_kaeppel you recommend?

@j.baiely.osu, Have you decided your plan yet?

Thanks! :)

We got married at 1205 Del Boca Vista, Garden City Beach our wedding had 75 people and we had EVEYTHNIG right there at the hosue, the reception was under the house, Welcome BBQ in the yard, and rehersal dinner in the hosue, it is the hosue with the most space on that strectch. I am more than happy to talk offline and send tons of pictures etc. Also my caterer was awesome he DID EVERYTHING< so if you are doing a destination you can rest assured he takes care of ALL details for a wedding like this. Here is a link ot my wedding pics, I have more form all other events if you'd like to see as well, http://geneho.com/meridethkaeppelwedding/

also depeding on the number of guests you will have there are TONS of houses on that sterech that could also work well for you.

@j.baiely.osu most houses can accomidate that amount of guests, we had a 30 person reheral dinner in out living room, attached is a photo of that. Are you going down at all before your wedding? Do you have a caterer yet? There is someone i know that worked as my day of coordinator that would probaby be able to check out the specific house you are renting to see if the layout could handle it we looked at Sunbrair, b/c we LOVED the rooftop reception idea, we tohught about 50 could have fit but were pushing it with 75. I think that would look AMAZING you could totally transform that space to make a beautful reception. Just do 3 long tables 10 people at each it fits beautifllu, and I love the long table look as you can see my head table pictured here ;o)
