Bonnet Island Estate is often mentioned as a dream LBI wedding venue. And it certainly does live up to the hype! It is one of my favorite Long Beach Island venues. It provides a stunning view, incredible views, and a beautiful backdrop that many brides simply swoon over.
Choosing Bonnet Island Estate as your wedding venue is a very high-end decision, and can get pricey. The Estate has what is called a site fee. If you are new to shopping for wedding venues, this means that you are paying a fee to use, or rent, the venue for a specific period of time to host your event. This is in addition to what you will spend on food and in some cases, additional rentals.
Bonnet Island Estate offers two options for renting, the first allows couples to rent the entire estate for 24-hours and will accommodate 24 guests staying on the property. This option can be a bit pricey, but you really can’t match the stunning views, beautifully designed estate, and the accommodations. The second option for renting the estate involves renting for just a 5 hour block that will allow you to plan your ceremony and reception on the estate without having guests stay over. This option is great and will help you to manage your budget concerns. In this case, you will be limited to a Friday or Sunday wedding. Saturday weddings dates are reserved for those couples wishing to rent the entire estate.
I recently did a photoshoot featured in the Blissfully Wed section of Bay Magazine, and it was a wonderful opportunity to revisit the estate for a spring/summer wedding.

While Bonnet Island does not host too many weddings in the winter months, I have also planned a gorgeous winter wedding at Bonnet Island Estate, which was also incredibly beautiful! The estate is impeccably maintained and looks gorgeous all year round!
Let me know. I would love to see if I can help you to make your wedding day (and the planning leading up to it) as stress free and easy as possible.
