Assateague Island Weddings
We live near the Island and created the original Assateague Beach Wedding service in 2006. You’ll need a $35 Worcester County Marriage License. The State Park doesn’t require permits but you must contact them a week before the wedding (410-260-8367). Guests pay a fee of $5 per vehicle.
The National Seashore needs a Special Use Permit (non-refundable $50 fee). If approved, you get 2 permits to sign & return before receiving your documents. It takes weeks and doesn’t include exclusive use of the area.
Assateague State Park Weddings
To reach Assateague State park, follow Route 611 to the Verrazano Bridge. Cross the Bridge and drive a mile until the road dead ends at a roundabout. Make the last right turn and pay your entrance fee at the toll gate. Once you park, you’ll see a single structure that houses bathrooms, changing areas and a lifeguard station. There is a wooden pathway to the right of this structure. Walk along the path to the fence at the crest of the hill. On the other side of the dune is where the Assateague Beach Wedding will be. The state park has real bathrooms & relatively clean changing facilities.
