An important factor of any wedding is the venue - where you are going to have the ceremony and reception. Around Wilmington NC wedding venues abound from the casual beach to formal church and everything in between. The number of historic sites alone in this area is outstanding, and Wilmington NC has become one of the hottest destination wedding venues in the entire country. 

Opening just this year in April, 2016 is a new venue called Wrightsville Manor with beautiful and enchanting indoor and outdoor opportunities for the ceremony as well as reception and the attending wedding activities as well - rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, and just about anything else you can think of. There is Burgwin Wright House and the Bakery 105 for unique and stunning historic weddings or other Wilmington NC events. 

For a wedding right on the beach, there are numerous places for a wedding location around the Wilmington and Cape Fear areas. Shell Island Resort offers direct on the beach wedding set ups and for something even more informal, you could go with Ocean Spray Beach House where there is a lot of room for family and guests to gather beach side. 

In Wilmington, you get the coastal vibe mixed with small town coziness even while the area venues can handle huge crowds at nuptial events. The historic sites coupled with the surrounding beaches of the barrier islands of North Carolina provide so many options that you will have a hard time choosing. Some might prefer to have their wedding and reception inside in a more formal setting but still have the option of taking photos out on the beach or on one of the islands to add some outdoor beauty and texture. Others like the outdoors for everything with an option for an inside ballroom to hold the party so guests can let their hair down and dance. 

Either way, Wilmington can accommodate it all. Reception venues also abound with most of the sites already mentioned also available for receptions, and a few others that are notable such as Brick Landing Plantation, the Country Club of the Crystal Coast, Beam Room Catering, the Clubs at St. James Plantation, the River Walk Landing, and the River Room. Any and all of these venues are brilliant for receptions when the couple have decided on a formal church wedding for the ceremony. These locations and many more, actually, are perfect for the party that follows the ceremony and most offer their planning facilities along with the venue to time everything just right. 

All in all, Wilmington NC wedding venues are the way to go whether you live in the Carolinas or across the country. The ambiance and fresh sea breezes will have you wishing to come back for anniversary parties and beyond. No matter what style of wedding you prefer, and no matter how many guests, friends, and family are involved, the wedding locations and reception venues around Wilmington NC and Cape Fear will provide what you are looking for and a whole lot more.
