Spring is the traditional season for weddings, and Ocracoke Island is a popular spot for the ceremonies. Couples may choose to tie the knot in any number of places, including one of the local churches, in the magistrate's office, in a local garden, on the beach, or in front of our 183 year old lighthouse.

Caterers, florists, and musicians are available right here on the island. For more information, take a look at the Ocracoke Wedding Guide on Hyde County's official web site.

And if you see folks walking barefooted across the beach while wearing tuxedos and white dresses, or riding through the village on a bicycle built for two with a long white veil and throwing rose petals at passersby you are probably witnessing an informal wedding celebration (or O'cockers just having a good time).

    Question: How do you pronounce the word "O'cocker": O-coke-er or O-cock-er (and which syllable gets the accent)?
