(I posted this on the wrong board, is there any way to delete the old one? Sorry, still relatively new at this!)
First off, not engaged yet, just dreaming 🙂
If you don’t mind my asking, how much does this location cost? I heard from somewhere if you spend a minimum on food and drinks you get the venue free. Is that still going on and what is the minimum? Also how was your overall experience? This is my dream location and I’m hoping it’ll be within budget :). Thanks!

I didn’t get married there but I have stayed there. And I have to say I absolutely love the place, I bet a wedding would be perfect there! Sorry, I’m no help for your question, but I’m am from Charleston and I just had to comment.

@MercyK: It’s definately a help! I’d love to hear about people’s experiences there. I’m not technically a Charleston bee (just went there for college) but I’m a South Carolina bee and there’s never been any doubt in my mind that I’m getting married somewhere in Charleston (my SO is attached to it too, lucky me!)…but I’d really really like to get married at the Francis Marion since it was such a special place to my grandparents (they went there whenever they visited Charleston and I remember my grandmother talking about how weddings there were always beautiful). I’ve been to the hotel before for fraternity balls and it’s the most gorgeous one I’ve ever seen. Now if only it were in my price range lol…

I don’t live in Charleston either, but the Francis Marion is such a beautiful place and in an excellent spot for gorgeous pictures!! I hope it all works out for you!
