So i am planning a wedding at the end of aug and i want to get married on the beach not sure if i want to do it in pismo or avila, either is fine. But i cant find a good reception venue, i want something that wont have to be decorated too much, and that does not cost a fortune! im inviting around 150 people to me wedding so there will be about 100-150 people at the reception. If any one has any help for me it would be GREAT FULLY appreciated!

We loved our venue... we got married on the beach in Avila and the reception was at the Avila Beach Resort... if that is too pricey, look into the Old Custom House private cellar room or the Avila Beach Community Center. Congrats and good luck!

Hi! I would look into Ventanna Grill, The Custom House, Avila Lighthouse Suites and Sea Crest Resort. Hope this helps!

We got married in Sept 09 right on Avila beach. You need a permit for it and we rented some chairs and had an arch. For the reception we had tents and chairs on the grassy area by the restrooms. Our family got there at 7 am to set up because it's a 1st come basis there. It worked out perfect and we had a great day with a very low cost compared to the venues there. My brother's resteraunt catered the event with some amazing bbq tri tip! Their name is Oak Pit Bbq in Arroyo Grande. If you have any more questions feel free to email me at [email protected] and put Avila Wedding in the header.
