By Editor 2022, April

Celebrate life’s most precious moments at Gurney’s on Long Island’s East End.

If you love the beach, and want to find a waterfront venue that’s fairly easy to get to for tri-state local friends and guests, Gurney’s Resorts are the perfect places to host your wedding. Montauk is within driving distance of NYC, and Gurney’s Montauk has beautiful indoor and outdoor venues. Make the most of our spaces, from an open air ceremony on the deck to a tented reception, or head indoors for dancing and always leave time for a fire-side after party. Check out some tips from our expert wedding planners below:

Be flexible:

When planning your wedding, be open to all the options available to you. The pandemic taught us that sometimes things are simply out of our control.   We are seeing more flexibility among our clients as they source their music, florists, and stationers. Be open minded and you’ll find the right fit for every need!

Be patient:

As things open again remember, there may be a backlog of weddings that vendors and venues need to accommodate.  Many of the vendors were closed during the pandemic and they too are experiencing high demand. Your ideal original plan may need to change.

Hire a planner:

With so many moving parts, an experienced planner is key. They will help you manage any challenges that arise, bring the entire team together and handle all the fine details.

Remember it is your day:

Personalize the details so that your celebrations reflect what is most important to you.

 Manage your budget:

With the high demand for certain services make sure you have some additional funds for unexpected expenses. Pricing has changed during the pandemic due to supply and demand.

Keep your guests informed:

This has become so important as the restrictions continue to ease. Gurney’s weddings are primarily destination weddings, so it is important to keep your guests informed of any local rules.

A personal wedding website simplifies the communication between wedding couples and their guests.


Most importantly…… enjoy every moment of this glorious celebration.
