Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 2: Cape May requires beach wedding reservations to avoid nuptial traffic jams

Yes, you can get married on the beach at sunset in Cape May. It's one of the few places where you can do that on the East Coast, which is one of the reasons Cape May is a popular destination wedding spot.

But did you know that you need to reserve your wedding time and spot in advance? That's because beach weddings are so popular, and the city doesn't want a nuptial traffic jam.

According to the Cape May Times, you must call Terry Stickle, the city's wedding coordinator, at (609) 884-9580 to get the ball rolling.

I've helped a few couples sort out their Jersey Shore wedding details, so feel free to email me at jenmiller27 [at] gmail [dot] com if you have questions. And here's a short sales pitch: If you have guests traveling in from out of town, you could give them copies of my book in a welcome bag, or as gifts to your bridal parties. I an offer bulk rates, too, up to 50% off. This actually wasn't my idea - a few couples have done this already!

Good advice, most people would never think this is a problem. I have worked at places were it seems to be battle of the Brides!

I always found it crazy how Cape May prohibits you from hanging towels on your porch!! Beautiful town though :)
