Lowcountry Love: Your Dream DIY Beach Wedding on Hilton Head Island

By Hilton Head Insider

So you’ve decided on a beach wedding—congratulations! Hilton Head Island is the perfect place to say “I Do” next to the ocean blue. Voted one of the top 10 family beaches in the U.S., Hilton Head Island offers 12 miles of pristine beaches within easy walking distance of top-rated restaurants and resorts, championship golf courses, and photo-worthy landscapes draped in Lowcountry charm.

Now that you’ve chosen the when and where, it’s time to start planning the Big Day. It may be tempting to go all in and let a professional wedding planner handle everything (we’ve got those too, just in case), but if you have the time and you’re seeking an event that’s a little bit more personal—and budget friendly—a DIY wedding is the perfect solution. Here’s how you can get crafty and create the beach wedding of your dreams on Hilton Head Island!
