Security deposits ranging from $500-1,000 are required for all wedding and event properties. Security deposits are returned within 15 to 45 days of your departure date and will be withheld for any damage done to the property.

Do I have to purchase a wedding package to hold a ceremony/reception in an Emerald Isle Realty rental home?

Wedding packages are not required with the rental of most Emerald Isle Realty event homes, however, we do have some property owners who require an Emerald Isle Realty Wedding Package to be purchased with the rental of their home. Our event planners will be happy to supply you with the names of the properties that have this preference.


If it’s a small ceremony, do I still need to book the wedding through the Events Department?

Yes, all ceremonies must be booked through the Events Department. You can contact the Events Department by submitting this form or calling (252)354-6155.


How many property visits do you recommend before the wedding?

Our Event Services Department does not require the couple to do an on-site visit. We want to make the planning process as easy as possible, so we’re happy to meet via the phone and email. Our top wedding package, the Unparalleled Perfection Package, offers unlimited consultations between the couple and wedding consultant.


I already have my wedding venue chosen, but don’t have a wedding planner. Can the Emerald Isle Realty events team still plan my wedding?

Yes, our wedding planners are approved to work at venues all over the Crystal Coast and beyond.
