Get Married in Nags Head

If you’re considering holding a Nags Head wedding on the Outer Banks, you’re not alone. Destination weddings are in, and the Outer Banks has become a prime destination.

When planning your wedding, you’ll discover that every Outer Banks wedding is unique because of the number of options available. Nags Head wedding ceremonies can be beachfront or soundside or held in a chapel or church. Corolla weddings are sometimes held in a special location such as the Whalehead Club or on the grounds of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. Roanoke Island weddings have lots of unusual options—the Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, on the waterfront or in the yard of one of the lovely bed and breakfast inns in Manteo. If a Duck wedding is in your cards, the small town makes it convenient with shops, restaurants and other amenities close by. There are many settings to choose from wherever you are on the Outer Banks for the rehearsal dinner and reception, from local restaurants to inns, hotels or even a rental home.

But Nags Head weddings are particularly popular due to the town’s central location, about in the middle of the Outer Banks as a whole. Guests who come for what ends up being a Nags Head wedding vacation can easily take excursions to the northern or southern offerings. Plus, the Nags Head, Kill Devil Hill and Kitty Hawk combo has more vacation rental homes available than any other Outer Banks area. Many Nags Head weddings are held in huge oceanfront rentals that are specifically designed with weddings and other large events in mind.

While most people might see the Outer Banks as a laid back beach area, don’t think that means that the businesses involved with the wedding industry here couldn’t compete anywhere in the country. These are top-notch Outer Banks wedding professionals who can provide anything their citified counterparts might offer. When it comes to a most important part of your reception, the food, you’ll be in excellent hands. The Outer Banks is home to some of the best restaurants you’ll find anywhere. Most are locally owned and operated, so they are unique and offer high-quality fare. Many restaurants here specialize in local cuisine. Wedding guests traveling to share in your Nags Head wedding will be delighted if the reception menu highlights some local specialties like fresh seafood or North Carolina barbecue. Many restaurants offer catering services, but a few area chefs specialize in catering alone. Begin with our list of wedding caterers, and enjoy the selection process — it can be a delicious experience! Wedding planners, florists, cake bakers, photographers, officiants and other vendors are able to hone their skills to perfection with the thousands—literally!—of destination Outer Banks weddings that happen here every year.

A Nags Head wedding can provide everything a great wedding experience is made of — a beautiful, natural setting, comfortable accommodations and excellent service providers to help with every step. Our best piece of advice? Start your planning early—a year out is not too soon—if you’re planning a wedding of any size.
