Weddings on the Beach

Wedding ceremonies that will be performed on the beach require a permit from the Town of Hilton Head Island. To apply for a permit, please submit the Wedding Ceremony on the Beach Request Form which includes the Time, Date, Location, duration, number of expected guests and any other information that may be relevant. Please include a current mailing address and a daytime telephone number.

Effective immediately, the Town of Hilton Head Island will permit beach wedding ceremonies for wedding parties with ten (10) or more attendees. In accordance with current guidelines from the State of South Carolina and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "wedding size should follow social distancing guidelines, allowing a six-foot space between attendees."

  • If you have already been issued a permit for a maximum of ten attendees, there is no need to resubmit an application for a greater number of attendees.

  • If your previous application has been denied or rescinded due to the number of attendees, please resubmit your application via the link provided below.

Please note that the Town reserves the right to rescind permits as conditions may warrant.


The "Location Details" of the ceremony must be known prior to the request submission.
