SAN DIEGO WEDDING LOCATIONS & VENUES

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

We have included some photos and information below for some of the wedding sites that are available in San Diego County. Let us know which locations appeal to you and we are happy to give you more details!

Sunset Times for Your San Diego Beach Wedding

WHEN PLANNING YOUR SAN DIEGO BEACH WEDDING, CONSIDER A FEW THINGS...

  • Only one permit per day is issued for any one beach, coastal park or cliff location.
  • Location permits are NOT issued for dates that fall on major holidays and over major holiday weekends.
  • Permits for Balboa Park, Coronado and Del Mar are NOT included in our wedding packages and must be obtained by the couple. We offer permit assistance and a discount on our Classic Packages for those areas.

LOCATION PERMITS START BOOKING ONE YEAR IN ADVANCE AND SPACE IS LIMITED!

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.

What Are Your Priorities?
All San Diego wedding locations have pluses and minuses. Is privacy most important to you? Perhaps easy access and parking is your main concern? Weather and temperature? Narrowing down one of two priorities will help make the planning process 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!

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 may be 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.
