The quintessential beach wedding experience is being able to sink your toes in the sand as you walk toward the one that you are about to spend the rest of your life with. The Beach Wedding Permit allows you to exchange vows on the sand in the heart of the oceanfront, giving you guaranteed access and permission to say “I Do!”
By requesting this permit you are guaranteeing that you and your guests will be able to comfortably and privately set up for your ceremony. Permission for archways, tents, and chairs – along with personalized décor – are all covered with the permit to bring your perfect beach wedding to life at a specific place and time. Virginia Beach is committed to helping you create a welcoming and picturesque wedding celebration.
For those planning an intimate ceremony of fewer than 150 people, there is no requirement to purchase the Beach Wedding Permit. However, if you are looking to reserve a spot in the sand with a large or small party, then our permit is the way to go – and for only a $200 permit application processing fee. We are looking forward to becoming a part of your special day in whatever way enhances the experience.
