Map of the Hamptons

Many times when our thoughts turn to Destination Weddings, we think of the tropical locations in the Caribbean – however, an equally beautiful and festive location is The Hamptons.  It’s no surprise that The Hamptons play host to many celebrities every summer and if you are a fan of the TV Show “Revenge”, then you get a glimpse into the social scene there.  One of my favorite shows, “Sex In The City”, also had episodes devoted to summertime in The Hamptons.  So, why not select The Hamptons for your destination for your wedding?!

There are many homes and cottages available to rent.  Some rent by the day while others by the week and even month.  For a wedding celebration, a week would be a wonderful amount of time to arrive, get settled in, and begin the pre-wedding celebrations.  Take your bridal party with you and have some great “girl” time.  Many of the houses have private pools, so lounging around the pool would be an excellent way to enjoy being together and relaxing.  The Hamptons boast many fine restaurants where your group can go for dinner if you don’t want to cook in the kitchen of the home.  Or maybe a night out at one of the many Nightclubs would be a fun activity.  Many of the homes come with grills and outdoor dining areas, so having a barbecue would be a great option for a Welcome Party or even the Rehearsal Dinner.  Of course, being on the water, perhaps a Low Country Boil would be appropriate.

Many of the homes are waterfront properties, so imagine having your wedding overlooking the water.  With a large lawn, the possibilities are endless for dining under the stars.  To be prepared for inclimate weather, a tent could be installed.  The month of July is the hottest in The Hamptons with highs reaching close to 90’s during the day but cools off nicely at night to the upper 60’s to 70’s.  These could make for comfortable temperatures for a lovely outdoor celebration.  I envision twinkle lights strung to provide a magical feel to the area while candles and flowers float in the pool.  

Many of the homes available for rent have numerous bedrooms, so hosting a large group is very easy.  Usually, all of the “comforts of home” are provided for you, so there is no need to pack the essentials (linens, dishes, paper products, etc.) which makes it very easy to just arrive and begin enjoying the home and area.

Whether you want to cook up a meal or just lounge around visiting and relaxing, this place can accommodate it all!

One rental home that I located even has the option of motor cars and a yacht available for rental.  What an incredible “departure” for the bride and groom to depart the reception and get aboard a private yacht for their wedding night.  Imagine, cruising around in the harbor while enjoying the gentle waves that lull you to sleep on the first night of being husband and wife.  Wake up the next morning where a bountiful breakfast has been provided for you.  Or perhaps you would prefer to have one of the magnificent motor cars take you to a different location for your first night if you didn’t want to stay in the fabulous Master suite.  So many options!!

Large events are very common in The Hamptons, and there are vendors to provide the vision you may have!  While I’ve mentioned the location for a Destination wedding, it certainly could also be perfect for a family reunion or Couples summer trip where spending time together and hosting special events throughout your stay are on the agenda.  

If this sounds like something that would be perfect for your dream destination wedding,family reunion or any other special event, let us know and we will begin to make the arrangements for you!!
