10 wedding location ideas in myrtle beach

Weddings no longer must be in traditional locations. In Myrtle Beach the location can be as individual as the imagination allows.

Myrtle Beach is located in the middle of a sixty-mile stretch of South Carolina's coast known as the Grand Strand. It has long been the favorite destination for family vacations and is quickly becoming a favorite for unique weddings.

Many of the traditions associated with weddings have changed in recent years, including the location of the wedding. The perfect place is often as individual as the couple being married.

The area is well known for its numerous golf courses, with nearly one hundred courses to chose from. The oldest of these, the Dunes Club, is over fifty years old. It has been featured in both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Among the newer courses to the area is The Grande Dunes, which is being proclaimed as one of the most beautifully designed courses in the country. With the many styles and designs to choose from, a golf course clubhouse in the Myrtle Beach area would prove to be an excellent location for a wedding.

Restaurants are also abundant along the Grand Strand. There are currently over one thousand, with more being added every year. Quite a few of them are large enough to accommodate a medium sized wedding with room for the reception. A beachfront restaurant would make a lovely wedding location. There are several beachfront restaurants, as well as, many fine, upscale dining restaurants throughout the Grand Strand.

Vacation resorts are becoming increasingly popular in Myrtle Beach. The advantage of holding a wedding in a resort would have to be the convenience of having the wedding take place all under one roof.

Myrtle Beach has a variety of cruise boats that run along the beautiful Intercoastal Waterway, as well as, cruises along the coast. A wedding on a sunset cruise would be a romantic occasion.

There are five large parks in the Myrtle Beach area that would provide a beautiful backdrop to a spring wedding. Huntington Beach State Park has a castle that is open to the public. Brookgreen Gardens is filled with not only lovely gardens, but picturesque statues as well.

Many couples still desire the more traditional church wedding. With over four hundred churches to chose from almost any denomination or church design could easily be found.

Wedding chapels have become more popular in recent years. They are most convenient in that you tell the proprietor what your preferences are, and he or she will take care of all the preparations. Myrtle Beach has over twenty to choose from.

For the more daring, there are three more places where weddings could be held. There is, of course, the beach. Since Myrtle Beach is a south-facing beach, a sunrise service would be a ceremony to be talked about for years to come. For the fishermen and women, there is a wonderful gazebo on the very end of the Cherry Grove pier. The gazebo was built after recent upgrades were done to the pier. It is a two-story structure that covers nearly the whole of the end of the pier and the view from the top is unlimited. And last, but certainly not least, in the middle of downtown Myrtle Beach is one of its most famous attractions, the Pavilion. The Pavilion is almost as old as Myrtle Beach itself, sitting right at the water's edge with a wide upper deck open to the sea and the sky. There is also an enclosed portion just in case the weather decides not to cooperate. Right across the boulevard is the amusement park with dozens of rides to entertain the guests once the wedding is over.

Whatever location you choose in and around Myrtle Beach you can be sure to have a wonderful wedding.
