Incredible in every way!
If only there were words for this amazing team and venue! Let me just say, if you choose to get married here know you will be in THE BEST hands!Sent on 11/01/2018
From the get go, Amber and Samantha were PHENOMENAL to work with, and were extremely responsive to emails and were so so helpful and patient with answering our many questions! And let me just say that we certainly had some hurdles they helped us over! My husband was VERY particular on certain details, and our wedding was also postponed due to Hurricane Florence. Amber bent over backwards to make our new date work for us, and accommodate last minute special needs. We truly made a friend in Amber, and we don't know how we would have gotten through the stress of the hurricane reschedule with out her!
We were also planning from out of town, and the WD team made things so easy! It was wonderful not to have to figure out external catering and bar - and we had great options from their menus to choose from! Our guests RAVED about the food, saying they had never had such great fish, barbecue and shrimp boil! I HIGHLY recommend the grouper serving station! Our guests were so impressed!
Our welcome party was on the beach, ceremony on the north lawn, and reception at Grand Pavilion poolside north. Our friends and family continue to tell us how beautiful the whole property was, and how they loved the scenery! It was also so nice that they could relax and have a bit of a vacation while joining us for our celebration!
The day of staff was phenomenal too! The bartender took special care of my husband and I, and the service for both our wedding party on the beach and dinner reception was phenomenal!
We were also engaged while staying at Wild Dunes, and Amber was so kind and sent some special treats to our room to celebrate! We always knew we wanted to have the ceremony and reception on the property and definitely made the right choice!

Honestly can’t say enough great things about this wedding venue. From the hospitality to the wedding ceremony site and reception. The rentals we had for our bachelor and bridal parties were amazing and slept us all well and comfortable. To the managers and catering team making sure my fiancé and I had the best wedding possible. They are totally awesome and worth the money!!!Sent on 05/14/2019

Just go ahead and book your wedding here now. Everything about getting married at Wild Dunes was perfect. From Samantha's willingness to go above and beyond to showcase the property to us remotely, to Amber's meticulous and thoughtful event execution, catering management and amazing personality, and every single member of the staff at Wild Dunes, I could not have asked for a better venue. As an event planner, I had very high expectations for my venue and caterer, and Wild Dunes exceeded my them in every single way: the food was delicious, the timeline and logistics management was perfect, the team is unparalleled. Amber and team went above and beyond to build our event with every custom request we had while also respecting our budget. They did not just treat us like the most important people at the resort, but they also treated every single one of our guests as royalty. It made me so happy to have guests come to me and tell me how wonderful their experience was at WD (that says something!) They've developed deep relationships with many of the local vendors, so I never had to worry about a seamless transition - it was all taken care of. I've never worked with a vendor -- professionally or personally -- that was more amazing than the WD team. Book your wedding here, and you'll agree that it will be the best choice you could possibly make.Sent on 06/08/2018
Wild Dunes has an excellent team. I've played guitar for ceremonies on the lawn, on the beach, and even receptions inside and I am always impressed by the team players there!
I love creating wedding films at Wild Dunes Resort! The location couldn't be more perfect, with the beach just a few feet away and everything else for a wedding day within walking distance—it's phenomenal. Wild Dunes Resort is a beautiful and unique venue in the Charleston/Isle of Palms area. Wild Dunes Resort makes for an amazing backdrop for a wedding film!
Amazing facility with just incredible amenities. Samantha Martin is simply amazing and one of the best in the business!!!
