Charleston is one of the most popular wedding destinations for good reason. It has a unique charm unlike any other city in the world. Truly it is such a beautiful place, from the beautiful architecture and the gorgeous views in gardens and Charleston waterways.
Popular wedding trends in Charleston include outdoors-y soirees under a canopy of great oaks, antique lounges, and LOTS of greenery; eucalyptus, ruscus, smilax, the works! What elements can you use to infuse a little Charlestonian charm in your wedding? Here are some of our favorite trends for wedding planning in Charleston!
1. Unorthodox getaways!
Long gone are the days of the limousine getaway. Vintage wheels, horse drawn carriages, and cute little rickshaws are a few cool options to up the anty on your getaway.
2. Dress up the bar!
Charleston is known for its hospitality and what's hospitality without a few drinks. The top most important thing Charleston couples say they envision for their wedding is a great time, so drape your bar in pretty and make it the focal point of your reception... aside from you of course.
3. Pretty Cakes
Big or small they are a deliciously sweet way to add a little something to your dream day. We recommend either a large monumental cake or a pristine and petite one. Remember that guests always wait on the cake. They are looking forward to it!
4. Classic Charm
Having a trendy wedding is great, but in Charleston, classic is King! Crisp white linens, monograms, neutral color palettes, and candelight are all lowcountry faves.
