Important Questions To Ask – FAQ

Do you have a wedding planner?

Our staff of professional wedding planners is experienced in arranging all of the details to ensure a meaningful and memorable wedding in Myrtle Beach that is tailored to each couple’s personalities, preferences, and budgets.

What are the options for outdoor Myrtle Beach wedding venues?

In addition to two chapels, Wedding Chapel by the Sea performs both beach and garden weddings. Our grounds, which feature a gazebo and waterfall, moss-draped oaks, wisteria, and azaleas, provide the romance of a southern garden and the appeal of a South Carolina wedding. In addition, we coordinate and conduct beautiful weddings on the beach.

If I schedule an outdoor wedding and it rains, what is the backup plan?

In the event of inclement weather, outdoor ceremonies can be moved into our Blue or Ivory wedding chapels.

Is there a space for the bride and groom to change and/or relax?

If you prefer the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride in her wedding attire before the ceremony, Wedding Chapel by the Sea provides separate dressing areas for our Chapel and Garden Weddings. Due to the off site location, no dressing rooms are available for the beach weddings.

Do you provide music for the ceremony?

Whether it’s a chapel, garden or beach wedding, we provide music for all ceremonies, regardless of their location.

Are flowers and decorations included? Are candles allowed?

The Blue and Ivory wedding chapels have beautiful candelabras with flower arrangements and ribbon decorated pews. Our gazebo features wrought iron benches. You can make additional simple decorating arrangements with your wedding coordinator.

Do you have an in-house caterer or a reception area?

Wedding Chapel by the Sea offers a reception space which comfortably accommodates small gatherings of friends and family members. The reception area is conveniently located adjacent to the Ivory and Blue wedding chapels. With our Happily Ever After Package or Sweet Celebration upgrades, we will serve you in our on-site reception room.  Full course meals that are included in the Cloud 9 and Platinum packages are served at the Sea Mist Conference Center. The Wedding Chapel staff bring years of experience and attention to detail to the planning of every Myrtle Beach wedding reception.

Is wedding photography included? Where will you take photographs?

Wedding Chapel by the Sea provides you with a professional photographer to capture your wedding day. We use a Nikon professional D series digital camera with 10.2-mega pixels to shoot your wedding as well as your wedding photos in front of our waterfall, gazebo, gardens, chapels or on the beach. Our Myrtle Beach wedding packages offer a variety of options to preserve your wedding memories.

Are wedding videos available?

Wedding videos are included in 5 of our wedding packages. The package descriptions will indicate if a video is included. Whichever Myrtle Beach wedding venue you choose, Wedding Chapel by the Sea can capture every moment of your wedding ceremony with multiple cameras simultaneously. To prevent any shaky or unstable images, we never use handheld video cameras. The Ivory Chapel and our garden gazebo both feature three professionally mounted video cameras. Tripods are used on two cameras for weddings at the beach and in our Blue Chapel.

Wedding Chapel by the Sea’s videos are professional in quality and not just home movies.  With our digital video system, we edit the footage from the multiple camera angles into a high quality heirloom. And we also can provide a video photo montage set to music.
