Beach Wedding Inspiration

If you’re planning to begin your happily ever after beachside, you’ve come to the right place. Sweeping views of the ocean, the sounds of the waves lapping the shore, and the feeling of sand between your toes—there’s simply no better place for a beach wedding than Hilton Head Island.

Here are some beach wedding ideas that will surely inspire you to say “I Do” at Palmetto Dunes:


While there are stunning venues all over Palmetto Dunes, none are more beautiful for a wedding ceremony than the beach. Lucky for you, there are miles upon miles of sandy settings for you to choose from on Hilton Head Island. And if you want to keep the ocean views after your ceremony, The Dunes House is the place for you. Easily customized for a casual reception or a lavish Lowcountry event, it is the perfect place for a beach wedding reception.


Thanks to the sun, sand, and ocean breezes of the beach, when it comes to the wedding attire, lightweight is always the way to go. With a more casual look, take the opportunity to accentuate your outfit with beach-inspired accessories—think jewelry, hairpieces, and sunglasses. Not to mention the bouquet and boutonnieres that can be accented with some pretty sea life like urchins, seashells, starfish, and pearls. One thing to remember, high-heels and sand don’t mix so opt for wedges, flats, or even bare feet for your wedding party and your guests.


While a beach wedding provides you with plenty of natural scenery, ocean-inspired décor can add a little something special to your big day. Pretty flowers with seaside flare, driftwood signs with elegant calligraphy, and sprinklings of seashells and beach glass are perfect subtle nods to the ocean for your ceremony and reception.


On your reception menu, include some seafood choices, as well as options for those who don’t eat fish or shellfish. Some of our favorite seafood dishes are local fish as an entrée option, fish tacos as an appetizer, or an oyster shucking station to introduce guests to Hilton Head’s local delicacy. And don’t forget, a beach-themed cake is a must-have to finish off the meal!

Hiring the right entertainment can make all the difference in setting the right atmosphere for your big day. Live entertainment playing local music. A calypso band. Iconic beach games. A fire on the beach with s’mores. Consider activities that not only bring the beach vibes to life but create unforgettable moments for you and your guests.


The beach is the perfect backdrop for your first pictures together as husband and wife. Draw a heart in the sand. Take a photo in front of the breaking waves. Walk along the beach with your nearest and dearest. Capture your silhouettes against the sunset. Make sure to work with your photographer to hit all of the picture-perfect settings Palmetto Dunes has to offer.
