Charleston, South Carolina might as well be the wedding capital of America.
Why? First, let’s consider how many chic bridal designers and bridal salons call the Lowcountry gem home. Brides shopping for their dream dress walk the charming cobblestone streets to trendsetting favorites, Maddison Row South and Lovely Bride. Or, why not go custom visiting couture designers like Emily Kotarski or Kate McDonald in their local studios? Even accessorize with custom pieces by local designer, Emma Katz. Whether or not you plan to marry in Charleston, you certainly could send those bridesmaid proposal cards with an invite that reads, “Come shop with me in bridal heaven!”
Then, there are the venues. Imagine stately mansions and riverside estates. Waving seagrass and dolphins swimming by. Picture golden hour portraits between rows of majestic Oak trees dripping in Spanish Moss. Home to over 100 wedding venues, this tiny town on the Atlantic is a prime wedding destination.
Case in point, South Carolina Society Hall, styled here in an opulent and lavish fashion by wedding planner Type A Society and photographed by Sarah Bradshaw. As do the best Charleston venues, South Carolina Society Hall exhibits effortless Southern charm. The space is glowing with iconic Charleston pastels and luscious tapestries. We love the way this editorial shows off the best of Charleston weddings. Which begs the question, why get married anywhere else?
