You have the perfect partner, perhaps the perfect ring, and now it’s time to plan the perfect wedding to celebrate your love! There are several things to consider when you’re preparing for the big day.
Whether you’re dreaming of saying, “I do” with your toes in the sand or you want a lavish affair that includes dancing under the stars, Del Mar Village is the ideal location for hosting your wedding day. The town’s seaside location, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and gorgeous weather 365 days a year, make it a popular destination for every type of wedding.
What’s more, if you choose Del Mar as your wedding destination, you can breeze through planning because everything you need is in the Village.

Here’s how to ensure your Del Mar wedding is picture-perfect.
Start with Your Venue
The venues in Del Mar Village each have special features that make them unique. They all offer gorgeous ocean views and many of them are just steps from the sand.

Some of the most-booked locations around the city are:
- Del Mar Beach
- Del Mar Fairgrounds
- Del Mar Plaza
- L’Auberge Del Mar

Send Out the Save the Dates & Invitations
Why order run-of-the-mill invitations online when you can have customized stationary to send your guests? Del Mar Blue Print Co. offers graphic design and print services so you can wow your family and friends with something unique and set the tone for your wedding day. They can also help you with personalized signs to give your wedding an extra-special touch.
Find the Perfect Wedding Band
You might already have your engagement ring, but the wedding band is just as important. Find the perfect complement at Marquis Fine Jewelers, Joni ANND Susi and Loghman Jewelers. Each of these stores have their own selections of one-of-a-kind and bespoke sparklers for men and women.
Say Yes to the Perfect Dress
With your venue set and date saved, it’s time to move on to a dress. No matter your style, budget, or timeline, you’ll be able to find your dream dress in the Village. The Bustle carries designers in a wide range of styles and sizes (including plus size), and have an amazing team who is dedicated to helping you find the dress.
Set the Ambiance with Floral
Bouquets and boutonnieres will set you and your bridal party apart and add a little something extra to your outfits. Floral arrangements at the altar, down the aisle, and on the tables at your reception can also make a big difference to the overall look of your special day. Jolie Fleur has done an exceptional job of helping brides in Del Mar and across San Diego add beautiful detail to their wedding day.
Book a Table for Your Rehearsal Dinner
One of the biggest draws of Del Mar—besides its exceptional weather and gorgeous views—is its award-winning restaurants. The options are nearly limitless; from freshly caught seafood to ingredients imported from Italy, and California cuisine to Peruvian fusion, there are dishes to appease everyone in your bridal party and family. Many of these restaurants also cater, so you can have your favorite food at your reception too.
Relax & Pamper Yourself
As you get closer to your wedding day, take a step away from all the planning and relax a bit. Spa L’Auberge and Spa Na’Mara offer luxurious treatments to help you find peace in all the chaos. A massage will help you unwind; a couple’s massage could feel even more special and give you and your partner an excuse for a little alone time. A facial, body wrap, exfoliation treatment, spray tan, or waxing service can also help you get ready for the big day. Plus, get a manicure or pedicure from Del Mar Nails and Spa at Del Mar Plaza so that your nails look picture perfect for your big day.
