We attended a wedding there together about a year before our wedding and it was extremely beautiful and very practical for a wedding. The large oak trees, the Spanish moss, the palm trees, and the dock by the water offered all the scenery you expect in the lowcountry. We also liked the ability to have the ceremony, social hour, and reception all in the same place but at different locations within walking distance on the plantation.
Our menu was all Lowcountry – pulled pork and chicken barbecue, macaroni and cheese, potatoes, green beans, salad, fruit and served sweet tea, lemonade, and water in small mason jars.
- If you have a budget, do your absolute best to stick to it. Work backwards starting with how many people you are going to have attend the wedding.
- Enjoy the wedding and the wedding planning process – do your best not to get caught up on every little detail, especially as the wedding day gets closer.
- Remember this is your day as a couple – you cannot please everybody!
- The most important advice is to keep your focus on the marriage and commitment you are about to make instead of just the planning of one day.
