If you’re hosting a Hamptons wedding, you already know that there are numerous towns and hamlets to choose from when it comes to picking a location. Technically part of East Hampton, Montauk is known as “The End,” as its situated on the easternmost point of Long Island (and New York State!). Montauk wedding venues are particularly popular, probably due to the area’s laid-back, nautical-chic vibe. Your guests will love spending the weekend hitting up the beach and charming town, and you’ll adore the variety of incredible Montauk and East Hampton wedding venues, from charming gardens and hotels to casual restaurants to beaches right on the Atlantic Ocean.
