How can I get married on the beach?
As a rule, weddings are not allowed on the Gulf Shores public beaches from Spring Break through Labor Day weekend, especially if a large group is expected.

No chairs, gazebos, arches, etc. are allowed to be placed on the public beaches.

If you are renting a private beach house or condominium, and have the permission of the owners to conduct a wedding, no permits are required from the City. You do need to make your guests aware, however, that they cannot park on the road rights-of-way.

Gulf State Park, located in Gulf Shores, has a pavilion that is perfect for family and group outings, reunions, beach parties and sunset weddings. Rental is available 7 days a week, except major holiday weekends during the summer.

For more information on pavilion rentals or to having a wedding on Gulf State Park beaches (permit required), call 251-968-7296 or 968-7245 Wednesday - Sunday.

Contact the City Clerk's office at 251-968-1124 for more information from the City of Gulf Shores.
