Speaking of picture-perfect, the Island’s photographers know how to properly shoot a wedding in this area. They understand how to capture the couple with amazing sunset backdrops and how to make brides look flawless on our hottest days.
If you are planning a destination wedding, be sure to check into an area wedding planner for assistance, or ask the Hilton Head Island/Bluffton Chamber of Commerce wedding specialist to help you get started with your wedding plans.
Recently the Town of Hilton Head Island put a ban on using sky lanterns for any purpose. Sky lanterns have become a “new” item that many couples are using as their send-off at the end of the night. Sky lanterns are lit with fire and then released, so they can become a fire hazard to surrounding trees and homes.
Another Island ordinance that is important for couples to consider is our turtle season. From May 1- October 31st, if your venue is on the beach, it is “Light’s Out” at 10 pm. If there is any light reflecting on the beach, it must be turned off or covered with a shade.
Lastly, don’t forget to have a back-up plan in case of inclement weather or worse, a hurricane. Our hurricane season is June 1st-November 30th. The best thing to do is just to have a plan in place.
No matter what the season, or month, Hilton Head Island is beautiful year round!
We have so much to offer couples planning a wedding, and it’s no wonder we are one of the largest destination wedding locations in the country!
