Trying to decide which venue to go with. I am visiting all of these, but would love opinions, advice, or reviews on any of the below. thanks!
1. Club Creek at I’on – this is the front runner. Has anyone been to a wedding here? How is the food?
2. Legare Waring House – love love this stunning venue, but worried about rain.
3. Lowndes Grove River House

I’On is nice, but it’s in a random neighborhood in Mt. Pleasant. It’s really just your basic neighborhood/country club type venue; there isn’t anything really “Charleston-y” about it. But if you don’t really care about your wedding giving off a specific Charleston vibe, this place is great! I went to College of Charleston, and one of my sorority formals was here, and it was a very pretty venue.
As for Lowndes Grove, it’s a very beautiful venue. It’s on the river, and is on the Charleston peninsula, and it’s a little ways away from the downtown area so it’s a more private/personal venue than ones in the immediate downtown setting. I’ve only been there once, but if I recall correctly, there are some trees with spanish moss hanging down (details like that just make it, you know?) The only thing I’ve heard about it is the F&B minimum is a little high for some brides, and they only deal with one caterer (Fish Restaurant)…but the food at Fish is supposed to be wonderful.
I don’t know much about the Legare Waring House, but I also have a fear of having a wedding/reception outdoors and the possibility of rain. Scary!
Hope I helped even a tiny bit! Good luck!:)
