Choosing a location for your San Diego Wedding is not quite as simple as just picking a spot and setting up chairs and an arch... all wedding sites are very specific, designated areas, with rules and regulations that must be followed.

All beach, park and cliffside locations in San Diego will require a permit in order to set up wedding equipment and there will be limits on the maximum number of guests that can attend.

What Is Your Wedding Date?
The date that you have chosen for your San Diego Wedding is an important consideration when checking on availability of permits, best locations for that time of year, and availability of our services. It is always a good idea to have a few dates that you are considering, providing the best chance of securing permits for your desired location and availabilty of our wedding services.

How Many Guests Will Attend?
All San Diego beaches and parks have occupancy limits which determine availability and permit fees for the wedding location, so having an idea of how many guests you are expecting will make finding the perfect location easier. Maximum guests for permits is 80.

What Are Your Priorities?
All San Diego wedding locations have pros and cons. Is privacy most important to you? Perhaps easy access and parking for guests is your main concern? Weather and temperature preferences will also help determine the best dates and time of day for your wedding ceremony. Narrowing down one of two priorities will help make choosing the ideal location a bit easier.

What is Your Ideal Setting?
Do you prefer a grassy park with a harbor view, or your toes in the sand on a beach facing the Pacific Ocean? Are photo opportunities your main focus? Making some decisions on what is most important to you before you give us a call, will help us better serve you!

"Toes in the Sand" vs. Grassy Parks or Cliffs?
There are three types of "beach wedding" sites where we provide Wedding Package services in San Diego... sandy beaches, grassy parks and the cliffs. Some areas overlook the Pacific Ocean, some overlook the Bay and others offer views of the San Diego Harbor and City Skyline. Southern California is famous for it's beaches and a "toes in the sand" wedding is often the first choice for brides... but the reality is that San Diego "toes in the sand" beaches can be very crowded, especially during June, July and August. An ocean-view park or cliffside location may be a better choice if your priority is maintaining a fun, stress-free wedding experience without too many "looky-loos" hanging about. The parks and cliffs also offer easy access and parking for guests, and are typically less crowded all year long.

Best Day of the Week for a Beach Wedding?
Saturday is the most popular day for weddings, as well as for other outdoor events and activities. Coastal areas will be busier and location permits will be more difficult to obtain for Saturdays. If you have flexibility, opt for a Friday, Sunday or weekday and more options will be available. Quick Tip: Hotels and reception venues often offer discounts Sunday through Thursday and during the off-season which will save you $$$.

Best Time of Day for a Seaside Wedding?
The optimum time of day for an outdoor coastal wedding in San Diego is 10:30 am. It will be peaceful and there will be ample parking for your guests. By having a morning wedding, you will be married and heading off to your reception, before beachgoers start arriving for the day. If you are interested in having a ceremony later in the day, between 4:00 - 7:00 pm will be best time for your San Diego Beach Wedding, depending on what time of year it is and when it will get dark. Quick Tip: A luncheon-type reception will save you lots of $$$.

Best Time of Year for Your Coastal Wedding?
The best time of year for a wedding on the coast in San Diego will depend on your priorities. Our rainy season begins in November and technically runs through April, and athough it doesn't rain very much here in San Diego, when it does, it certainly throws a wrench in the wedding works. June, July and August will be the busiest months of the year in terms of people at the coast, with September and October offering warm, dry weather with less people. We are happy to offer suggestions on the best date and time for your big day!

Can Guests Walk Across 100 Yards of Sand Easily?
For a "toes in the sand" wedding at one of our San Diego beaches, your guests will have to walk at least 100 yards across the sand to get to the wedding site. If you have guests who are elderly of have mobility challenges, a grassy park of the cliffs is a better choice for your San Diego Wedding location.

... Considering Sky Lanterns?

Please know, Sky Lanterns are not allowed at the beaches, parks or cliffs in San Diego, and more importantly, they are not safe for the environment.

Sky Lanterns are NOT an environmentally-friendly (even those made with "biodegradable" material) and have killed animals and started raging fires. "Biodegradable" does not mean harmless. They are NOT a safe alternative to balloons, which are also not permitted at the beaches and parks.
