What You Should Know
While the Wild Dunes Resort is on the beach, the staff doesn’t recommend beachfront weddings. The staff can’t provide private beach access, so you won’t get your own patch of sand to exchange vows. Also, the resort doesn’t provide setup assistance for beachfront weddings. It does encourage you to take some photos on the beach though. Take your photographer down to the beach for some photographs.
Wild Dunes Resort has a catering team on site that creates customized menus for receptions. You choose from plated meals, stations and buffets.
