Beach weddings are our specialty at Windrift Hotel Resort on the seven mile island of Avalon, New Jersey.

Some ideas I suggest to couples considering a nautical or Jersey Shore wedding theme at Windrift Hotel Resort include performing a unity sand ceremony and keeping the container as a lasting memory of the day. Incorporate items such as a basket of flip flops, beach tags for place cards, starfish favors, driftwood centerpieces, and an oar or life ring for the sign-in table.
While a Jersey Shore beach wedding is the ideal location for many couples, I often recommend that they prepare for a possible Plan B. Look at the weather history for your date (noaa.com), have a rain plan, offer flip flops to your wedding guests and, above all, keep it laid back and relaxed.
My favorite amenity at Windrift Hotel Resort is our beachfront view. There's nothing better than cocktail hour on the deck with blue skies and the ocean in the background. Even moonlit nights are amazing from this vantage point!
