PLANNING MAKES

Perfect

9 TO 12 MONTHS Whether you’re crafting your vows from scratch or staying true to the order of your faith, your ceremony should express the love you have for one another and the values you hold most dear. From moss draped oaks and sunlit sand dunes, to historic spiral staircases and piazzas overlooking the harbor, this is the beginning of your story. Once you’ve settled on a date, it’s time to reserve the setting that launches your lifetime. Compile your guest list, choose your ceremony officiant, and start planning the wedding of your dreams! Need a little help? Hire a professional Charleston planner; they’ll handle everything from the smallest details to day-of coordination—flawlessly. 6


MATCH YOUR NEWLYWED GLOW with a Charleston venue that lights up the night or swap vows amid sweeping oak trees and serene lakes blooming in abundance.

7


PLANNING MAKES

Perfect 5 TO 8 MONTHS Few moments have the power to stun on sight; your walk down the aisle will be one of them. From classic silhouettes reimagined with peekaboo panels to timeless tea-length hems, find your runway worthy design in Charleston. Indulge in the collective gasp when you appear in your dream gown accompanied by strolling violinists and a bridal party clad in fashion forward floral with bouquets to match; every moment captured by your personal paparazzi. Accommodations for your out of town guests are only a click away, giving you more time to envision your epic celebration from passed hors d’oeuvres and craft cocktails to the classical piece used to introduce your first dance.

OCEANFRONT ESCAPES have ageless appeal and pack in outdoor adventure, next-level amenities, refined landscape, and enough southern hospitality to fill the Atlantic Ocean.

8


KEEP LITTLE ATTENDANTS HAPPY with something sweet—under the condition they stay on their best behavior. One tip: Choose something that won’t stain their attire like marshmallows or clear gummies.

9


PLANNING MAKES

Perfect 0 TO 4 MONTHS Calligraphy to letterpress, understated to embellished, deliver your guests an unforgettable first impression with a stationery suite inspired by your wedding day aesthetic. Add Lowcountry touches to your reception with locally crafted favors, Southern sourced surcees, and curated in-room welcome baskets. A horse-drawn carriage, a sleek Rolls Royce, a party bus, or a bicycle built for two? Whether you want a unique getaway, or a fun way to give your wedding party a lift, there are plenty of options for transportation in Charleston. Boho beach waves, a side swept bun, classic red lips, smoky slate shadow, and dewy fresh foundation with a floral crown, bridal portrait and day-of look trials are part of the fun! Relax, sip on some champagne, and behold your wedding day reflection come to life.

10


A SERENE MARSH VIEW and skyline of Charleston’s Historic District play host to an ethereal Lowcountry wedding soiree - you’ll be transfixed by sunset.
