Outer Banks Beach Wedding Policies and Permits

Listed here are the Townships along with their phone numbers if you would like to call and talk with someone.

Basically, anything north of the Hatteras National Seashore is fair game and permits not needed to use the beach. If your wedding is held down on the Hatteras National Seashore (which is anything south of the red arrow below), you are technically suppose to get a permit from the park system. I would say maybe a third of the couples I serve down there end up getting the permit. It’s your call.

It’s really easy to use the beach here, so don’t be intimidated with permit and policy stuff. Feel free to call 252 216 6676 or contact me with any questions and concerns you may have about your special day.
