So glad I didn't choose this place! I put down a deposit and in the end my fiance and I decided to wait a year and go somewhere we really wanted. After reading the poor reviews and realizing guests can't take pictures, you can't choose your own music, etc this was just not the place I wanted. Even though I'm purchasing a wedding "package", I still wanted my wedding to be mine. We ended up going with Beach Occasions and thank GOD, they called me right away just to touch base even though my wedding was over a year and a half away. They are constantly in touch with me via email and are letting me have a say in my entire wedding from the flowers, to the music, to the decorations. Sabrina and Scott are wonderful. As for this place, I can't say. All I know is I had forgotten I even put down a deposit with them until I get a message on my cell saying my "wedding" is in a couple of days and I still owe a balance. That speaks volumes to me what matters to them. I'm glad I went with someone who cares.

First of all, I knew that going to a chapel instead of having a typical wedding would be questionable but after the birth of my son it was at the time, the only thing that we could afford. Oh where to start with this place.... First I tried many times to get ahold of someone just to look at this place and none of my phone calls were ever answered or returned so I sent them an emai and to my surprise I got a responce back. We set up an appointment to stop in and take a look. When I arrived I was told that they had no idea that I was coming and of course the lady I had talked to wasnt there but they didnt have any weddings going on at the time so I was able to come take a look. I wasn't blown over with what the place looked like but it would due. So I went back home and talked it over with the fiance and we went with the 1,500 package. After I went in and picked out my cake design, got my flower voucher and signed the contract everything went down hill and fast!!!!! As it notes on the website, I was suppose to have a "wedding cordinator" which is bull. I had a lady that I would email and ask questions and she would email me back. As the months drew closer thats when the Crap hit the fan. I had to emai them what I wanted the invitations to say, so I did, only to get invitations come back to me with misspelling and not what I had typed. So I wrote the lady back again and she said it would take a week to have them "redone" but she would send them out to me. Fast forward 6 weeks before my wedding I still had no invitations!! After me emailing her and informing her I was told she had "sent" them out in the mail a week prier so I had my father pick them up since my wedding was now 3 1/2 weeks away. Thankfully they were right. So now my wedding is inching closer and I am still waiting for someone to email me about my cake....So I email her. She informs me that the cake I chose is no longer available and I have to pick another cake. This is now about 2 weeks before my wedding and I'm so upset becuase alot of my theme for the recption was based off my orginal cake!! I wasnt expecting a "TLC" wedding but I wasnt expecting this either. So we go to the chapel with my mother, pretty much to cancel the wedding at the chapel and to get some type of payment back, but of corse the person I had been emailing wasn't around after we had a set a time to meet. But the invites were sent and there wasnt really anything we could do so we went to the new baker and picked out another cake..... 1 week before my wedding!!!!! At this point I am no longer excitied about my upcomming wedding and I just keep thinking what else can go wrong...haha WELL... We do our rehearsal which goes smooth (thank god) and now its the day of my wedding... I show up and there is still a wedding going on outside so I am not allowed into my dressing room until they leave. (My guests are already in the parking lot, with the GROOM, since my wedding is now 15 mintutes away.) My sister finally goes in and complains and i run, with a garbage bag over my hair and face so my now husband and guest dont see me. I go in the roon and not even 5 minutes later the lady comes in and tell me that there is a problem with my flowers and they are short one.... So it was either pick some one (my father, father in law, step father or my son) to not have one. Since my son was only a year old I picked him.....The wedding goes off without a problem after that then we leave to go have our reception that wasnt involved with the chapel. So fast forward to when Im suppose to get my pictures and DVD. The DVD (one of 3) they sent me all are messed up weither it be the music cutting out, a long white shelf cutting off the frame or skipping. And they dont start till after I am already at the alter. I get my pictures which are nice but my husband is blinking in some or someone's not looking. Guess we werent allowed retakes and There is NO pictures of me walking down the isle with my father, no video of it either or of me or my husband getting ready. And becuase they dont allow other people to take pictures these memories are lost forever. If I had the whole thing to do over again I would have. The whole thing was one big stress ball!! The people dont care how your important day goes they care about the money. Like I said before I wasnt expecting much but I wasnt expecting THIS.

To the previous reviews that I have just read you people must think you were getting a TLC TV star wedding. My wife and the crew at the chapel set up a very nice and romantic wedding for the two of us: It was just like it said, LOVE HONOR AND CHERISH, a very straight to the point love-lasting wedding.Our guest even loved how things went. They couldn't even believe that there was something else just as nice, if not nicer, than a church wedding. Minister Grainger conducted the ceremony in a way I couldn't even imagine. I would recommend this place to my friends and their friends. That is the place to get hitched. I know my wife and guest really enjoyed themselves and I think you will,also.

I cannot begin to stress my feelings about what has happen today just 3 days before our wedding. Went to their office and right off the bat was not pleased at what we saw. The Gazebo area hadn't seen a coat of paint since the thing was built. The water fall area looked like something from a swampland movie it was terrible. Now lets move to the office personnel and how they conducted themselves. We where greeted by someone that had just as much manners as a goat in captivity for 20 years. The owner wasn't any better on the phone when i requested and then demanded to speak to him.

She presented us with a contract that had things on it that wasn't mentioned at all until it was too late. Fees were paid and done and we drove from Virginia for this event and got slammed with this. They told us that we could not use our own music or take pictures ourselves and wasn't even willing to listen to what the bride want and didn't care.

They told us this was policy and its posted was in their website and I just looked when i got home and there is nothing there at all. So they lied to us in our face.

All they are about getting your money. and you are on your own from there. They rush you in and out and you married they careless about what you want. I asked for a refund and that when things got out of hand. I had to threaten law suit to get a full refund that day!. But i got it.

Letting you now don't bother going here you are not going to get what you paid for . YOu are better off going to a courthouse in front of a Judge at least you know what you are getting for your money. A wedding is suppose to be a joyous event not having someone crying 2 days before. They need to make a show called GroomZilla cause it was me today! I was ready to slap a person today for making my bride cry!

I don't want to give them any ratings at all i want to do shut them down and i will try or make it rough for them!

Ours is not a marriage of record as the chapel did not send on the license to Horry County after our 2007 wedding for recording. Repeated phone calls have one unanswered. Still waiting.

Cons: Failure to send on paperwork

This chapel is very unprofessionally operated. Dennis was very rude and unfair. The wedding party ahead of us waited 20 minutes past their scheduled time for a grandmother to arrive. Dennis did not harrass them while waiting. We arrive an entire hr ahead of time and waited patiently only to get into our dressing rooms 10 minutes before our scheduled ceremony. I overheard Dennis fussing at the lady at the front desk, blaming her for allowing us to get into our dressing rooms late. He rushed me and tried to tell me that we had to begin immediately in order to stay on schedule. I reminded him that it wasn't my fault that we were behind schedule and he continued to argue with me through my dressing room door until my fiance walked up to him and finished the argument for me. The ceremony, itself, was beautiful and intimate. I wouldn't change one thing about it. However, the website is very misleading about this establishment. There is no on-site coordinator taking care of everything so that you can relax and enjoy the important event. Everything is rushed!!! There is no pre-planning!!! Nothing is on schedule!!! Dennis tried to ruin our day but we refused to let him. Our day turned out to be very special. I would NOT recommend this wedding chapel to anyone!!! I guess you get what you pay for.

Message from Wedding Chapel by the Sea

If you are searching for alternatives to a less than romantic courthouse wedding or a stress-inducing formal church wedding, Wedding Chapel by the Sea offers the perfect solutions. Our two beautiful wedding chapels and fountain-side gazebo are nestled among moss-draped oaks and accommodate ceremonies during all seasons. In addition to chapel and garden weddings, we also specialize in romantic weddings on the beach.

More about Wedding Chapel by the Sea

Wedding Chapel by the Sea was originally home to an active Myrtle Beach church congregation for more than thirty years. When that congregation outgrew the quaint facility, the church was reinvented as the Wedding Chapel by the Sea. Unlike most wedding chapels in Myrtle Beach, we offer lovely indoor and outdoor wedding venues and our weddings are performed by an ordained minister.
