  1. SUch a great website with so many helpful tips! I love Santa Barbara and it would be such a dream to get married there! I have been there so many times and each time I always see a gorgeous wedding taking place on the beach or at a big hotel! The Oceana would be a nice place to hold a wedding but so would the Biltmore and Double Tree! A great hotel for guests to stay at who don't want to spend so much on their trip to see you get married is the Sandman Inn ( So affordable and very nice and spacious! Close to everything as well.

  2. What a lovely website! I love Santa Barbara for special events, especially weddings. The atmosphere is excellent and the weather is always superb. I always go to Santa Barbara to escape the madness of the city. Always stay at the South Coast Inn ( So elegant and the perfect place to call home while on vacation.

  3. I love all the pink on this website! So welcoming to the future bride and incredibly informative as well, that is the way to go! These are all hotels we love in Santa Barbara and some are better then others. The Oceana is a great 4 star hotel right on the beach and their pool is quite nice to lay at all day long on a sunny day. I don't know if the grounds at the Oceana would be good for a wedding though. If it's your wedding, shoot higher and make it memorable. There are a ton of perfect locations depending on the bride in Santa Barbara that would make for a great wedding location. I was just at a wedding located in a barn in the back hills of Santa Barbara. Beautiful ceremony and the couple was more then thrilled with the space we all had. Stayed at the Sandman Inn ( Perfect place for someone on a budget to stay.
