Words by Courtney Kellar

Domestic destination weddings are on the rise and The Outer Banks Wedding Association has become the one-stop-shop for couples interested in saying “I do” on the shores of North Carolina. With over 300 members strong, this association provides couples with exceptional wedding experiences. Their members strive to design events to inspire couples to fall in love all over again, from engagements, honeymoons, destination weddings and everything in between!

When you plan a wedding on the Outer Banks, you receive the priceless component of a tight-knit community. A beautiful thing happens when their members work together to make your wedding’s dream a reality! From officiants and floral design to caterers, rentals and more, you will receive a wealth of unparalleled local knowledge and expertise when you book a vendor of The Outer Banks Wedding Association. Complete with Southern hospitality and national skill, you can find the 19 different wedding vendor categories on their website to find the perfect wedding vendors for you by browsing here.

While known for their illustrious beach weddings, venues and vendors located on the Outer Banks can accommodate every wedding size and style. From intimate garden fetes at The Elizabethan Gardens and sound-side vows at Pirate’s Cove, to grand Jennette’s “I do’s” and romance between the vines of Sanctuary Vineyards, the opportunities are endless when you plan a destination wedding at this prestigious location.

Boasting the reputation as the host of the best wedding weekend and expo on the East Coast, The Outer Banks Wedding Association is proud to present its 18th show, January 16-17, 2016. When you purchase a ticket to this event, you gain access to over 200 wedding vendors at the two-day expo, the opportunity to tour some of the most sought after wedding venues in North Carolina and discounts at local restaurants and hotels. The Outer Banks Wedding Association is thrilled to give away a fully-paid for Dream Wedding during the final expo day to one lucky couple! For the first time, there will also be five other package giveaways for couples who may not be interested in the Dream Wedding! Those packages include multiple vendor giveaways and are categorized by the following: Elopement Package, Groom’s Package, Adventure Package, Bachelorette Package and Rehearsal Package. Each bride attending the expo will receive one ticket to enter the giveaway of her choosing and more tickets can be received by participating in various activities throughout the weekend! To purchase tickets to The Outer Banks Wedding Association’s 2016 Wedding Weekend and Expo, browse here. (The 2016 Dream Wedding date is set for July 13, 2016 in Manteo, NC.)
