my daughter wants to get married on the beach next August at the end. I have been looking at the prices of the condos (we will need several) and the prices seem to be better in September. Will a couple of weeks make that much difference in the weather? I have been told it starts raining in September. Also any ideas of where to have a small dinner afterwards for about 20 people? Thanks for any input you have

Yes, post Labor Day, the “high season” ends, so you’ll get much better rates. And from my experience, you are likely to get better weather….cooler. SPI generally doesn’t get a lot of rain, but it is unpredictable, and based on averages, it does rain more in Sept. And since the busy season ends, you’ll also have better luck seating 20 for dinner. I don’t know what you have in mind, but Gabriella’s is always good (yet very busy), Sea Ranch is larger, generally good, and white table cloth; or you may try Scampi’s which may be able to seat you “on the water” on the bay side. Another option may be booking the Southern Wave for a nice cruise. I think 20 may be a good size for that. Hope this helps.

And BTW, I would avoid Labor Day weekend....it will be crowded.
