St. Simons Elopement Ideas
Saint Simons Island weddings are a staple to our beautiful area. Couples come from all around the country to plan their bare feet in the sand for a beach wedding or in the historic squares and gardens. There are many gorgeous places that represent our beautiful coastal area very well– from sandy beaches to open parks. Which Saint Simons wedding venue is right for you? It’s just a matter of which reflect your personality!
Our parks feature the beautiful Spanish Moss that everyone loves on the trees, and are often times very close to the piers to allow you beautiful post-elopement photo ops. Many people fall in love with the beaches, and best of all they are free! What’s most important is that you consider the tide levels for when you would like to have your wedding ceremony. Consult the tide charts and take into account the weather, which can greatly affect the tides. Also keep in mind that since the beaches are free, there is no way to reserve a space for your wedding. If you have elaborate décor, be sure that your wedding coordinator has a plan ahead of time to enact setup.
