Whether you are a Triangle NC couple looking for a fabulous nearby destination wedding location, or from anywhere in the country and have heard the rave reviews about the pristine beaches that grace NC’s coastline, checking out the Outer Banks Wedding Association is a MUST!
From the views of the Atlantic and the sound, to the wild horses of Corolla, to its famous sand dunes, the sights of the Outer Banks are unlike any other beach in the country! Many of our Triangle Area brides have grown up vacationing in the OBX and think of all the beautiful houses that can be rented for small weddings. This is a fabulous option, but you may not realize that there are also lots of wedding venues that can accommodate large events also, and a slew of fabulous wedding professionals. Navigate the Outer Banks Wedding Association (OBWA)’s website to learn more about these vendors.
If you make the trip to Outer Banks (only a 4 hour drive from the Raleigh area!), be sure to stop by OBWA’s Wedding Welcome Center, which is in Nags Head. It’s open Tuesday-Saturday from 9am-2pm, and anyone is welcome to stop in, pick up OBWA’s bridal magazine, and pick up some information on some of the members.
Mark your calendar now for the 2014 OBWA Wedding Weekend. This annual event is a great way to see lots of the sites and meet many vendors in one big weekend – maybe even finalize lots of your wedding plans!
