Destination weddings are in. Did you know that Outer Banks weddings rank at the top of destination wedding locations in the country? And, since the small, northern Outer Banks town of Duck is such a beloved vacation location for thousands of visitors, it only stands to reason that Duck weddings get top popularity marks too. Here’s what creates the draw for Duck weddings: a small town atmosphere, the ability for guests to walk to shopping, attractions and recreation spots, top-notch restaurants that can double as reception or rehearsal dinner sites and a huge array of vacation rental options to match whatever housing need you have for your Duck wedding. It’s a destination wedding location that has it all.
One thing couples are doing is renting a big oceanfront house, or several houses in a row, to accommodate all their friends and family. Many couples hold their Duck wedding ceremony right on the beach then throw a reception back at the house, either indoors or by the pool. Several of the vacation rental companies even have wedding planners on staff to assist couples with this type of event. Be sure to ask if your rental company requires a special rental contract if you’re planning on throwing an event in the house. Another popular Duck wedding option is holding the event at Sanderling Inn Resort.
Other towns along this chain of islands are also popular for Outer Banks weddings. If you especially love the northern Outer Banks, you can also check out our Corolla weddings section. For couples looking for a strong beach theme, you might want to look into our Nags Head weddings section. Roanoke Island weddings offer options that aren’t typically found along the beaches. And, if a laid back, slower-paced wedding experience is for you, check out our Hatteras weddings and Ocracoke weddings sites.
Outer Banks weddings are hugely popular for destination events, so you’ll have no trouble finding high-quality service providers, as long as you reserve early.
