Welcome to the Outer Banks, a collection of charming fishing villages and enchanting towns along a 130-mile stretch of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. Whether this is a getaway that's close to home or you're planning your destination wedding, we've listed the highlights of what you need to know for your Outer Banks wedding.
Each community in the OBX, as it's known, has its own personality, so you won't struggle finding the right venue for you. From Duck in the north end to Hatteras in the south, there are Outer Banks wedding venues for the smallest, most rustic wedding to the biggest, most elegant affair imaginable.
Couples looking to celebrate the beachfront atmosphere in the Outer Banks will find plenty of locations right on the beach to hold the ceremony and reception. Whether you prefer beautiful, intimate homes on the shoreline or love seaside country clubs and resorts, there are plenty of options for a sandy "I do". If you'd rather keep your feet in the grass, choose from any number of inns, golf clubs or restaurants with the kind of ambiance you want for your special day. All the wedding venues in Outer Banks celebrate the unique character of these islands.
The average cost of a wedding in the OBX is just under $40,000. Depending on your venue, vendors and décor, it's possible to customize your costs to fit your budget. If you're on a tight budget, get creative and find fun ways to save at your Outer Banks wedding venue.
The Outer Banks are a tourist attraction, so traveling to the islands on Saturdays - particularly summer Saturdays - can mean a lengthy trip. To avoid travel hassles, consider planning your Outer Banks wedding during off-peak months, dodging summer when the OBX is busiest. Alternately, wed on a Friday, or arrive several days before the event so there's ample time for travel. If you must travel during the busiest days, consider taking an alternate route to your wedding venue in Outer Banks to save time.
Accommodations in the OBX are as unique as you and your sweetheart. There are campgrounds and cottages ideal for outdoorsy types, or sophisticated hotels and luxurious vacation rentals for those who want to room in style. You can choose oceanfront lodging or a quiet space hidden from the hustle and bustle of the town - there's something for everyone in the Outer Banks.
Depending on where you stay and the season, accommodations can cost anywhere from less than $100 a night to nearly $500 a night. If you're looking to save money, choose a place to stay that's off the beaten path and book your wedding in the off-season.
The weather in the Outer Banks is determined by the whims of the sea and the Gulf Stream, so temperatures vary on these barrier islands. Winters can be chilly, though rarely freezing, and summers are sunny with temperatures in the low 80s. In the fall and spring, temperatures range from the mid-50s to the upper 70s. Be prepared with layers and a way to warm up during your reception.
No matter what the season, when it's time to look for Outer Banks wedding venues, we have you covered with our planning tools to help you create your dream wedding.
