Same here. A wedding is the type of affair where the entire family should all be able to relax and enjoy the day, rather than stress about having to feed a bunch of people.

There were about 25 people. The bridal party and immediate family stayed at the rented house (9 bedrooms on 3 floors with an elevator!) and some others stayed at cottages in the near by town. Since it is only a 2 hour drive from our home we just went for the day and drove home that night. It was very nice.

Thank you, jabber. I was wondering because we live 2 hours from the NC shoreline too (but 3-4 hours from the outer banks) and my daughter wants a beach wedding as well.
