Planning a beach-front wedding? Why not add a New England clambake to make it even more memorable?

With over 20 years of experience catering clambakes, East Coast Clambakes knows how to make your beach wedding special.

Let us share with you these tips and ideas for hosting one that will make your guests gush over!

Choosing the Right Clambake Package

When choosing a menu or a wedding package, keep your expected guest count in mind.

The time frame of your wedding must also be taken note of since it may have an impact on how long the clambake lasts.

Let's say, your event is in the afternoon; you may want a shorter clambake.

Or a nighttime party that might allow for a longer, relaxing dinner.

In order to satisfy your catering needs, East Coast Clambakes offers several of options. Classic clambakes, lobster bakes, BBQs, and steak dinners are all included in our packages.

While our side dishes include baked potatoes, coleslaw, and corn on the cob.

If any of your guests have dietary concerns, do let us know in advance.

Selecting Your Location and Planning the Setup

Assuming you have already found a gorgeous spot for your beach wedding, it's time to think about the clambake setup.

You've got two choices for seating, a formal setting at large tables or a more laid-back setting with picnic tables or blankets.

To design your ideal beach wedding setup, we will work with your wedding coordinator!

Adding a Clambake-Themed Bar to Your Wedding

Include a clambake bar with a raw bar, lobster rolls, and clam chowder to give your seaside wedding a fun touch.

Your guests will enjoy walking around and socializing while giving them the opportunity to step up to the bar for their favorite seafood dishes.

Also, think of adding the clambake motif to your special wedding cocktail list.

DIY Clambake Party Favor

Let your guests bring some clambake homes by creating a DIY party favor.

Put together tiny bags that will be filled with local beach sand and tiny seashells.

Include a tag saying how much you appreciated their presence and thank them for coming.

Your guests will appreciate the thoughtful touch and have a lasting memory of your beach wedding!

Timing is Everything

Plan Your Clambake Beach Wedding at the Perfect Time

Timing is quite important for outdoor events as well.

Choose a day when the weather will be dependable, and the tides won't be high for your clambake beach wedding.

Low tide is the best time for a beach wedding clambake since there is enough room for everyone to participate without getting wet!

Adding Personal Touches to Your Clambake Wedding

Clambake catering gives a lot of flexibility because you may customize the menu, decorations, and ambiance to your specific tastes and preferences.

Adding beach-themed elements to your table arrangements and decor, using local seafood or products in your menu, or even setting up a s'mores bar or campfire for your guests to enjoy after dinner are all ideas to keep in mind.

But the most important thing is to make sure your New England clambake wedding ideas reflect who you are and are an unforgettable experience for yourself and your guests!
