- Wedding: December 2014
Our original wedding date was in December 2012, but life usually happens and plans fell through. We realized our first planning run was not as we envisioned it and this was mainly due to many mistakes on our part. This is our second try at this, and we most certainly want it to work out this time. Or I will not be a happy unofficial Bee. (;
My FI and I are both from SC (Charlestonians born and bred) and I work in the wedding industry, so I know how expensive this little peninsula has gotten in the last few years; even more so when that “#2 wedding destination” came up. In our first planning session, we were cringing at the prices. We wanted a super-small wedding: we only had 20 guests max and the prices were still crazy for catering, rentals, photography, etc.
For our second try at planning, we have decided to have a larger wedding, with at least 100 people minimum, 150 maximum. We need to re-establish our budget for this, so we don’t have a figure as of now, but I would like for us to spend under $6000. That’s such a ridiculously low number, but I’m putting all my good vibes into this working out and we get the wedding we want. We want it to look like a $50000 wedding for way less than it really is.
We are gunning for a December wedding, no year yet. Right now, we’re just thoroughly educating ourselves on everything possible so this won’t fall through again. I figured this would be the best place to get advice and great places and vendors to consider that offer stellar services for cheap. Please let me know anything you can! It will be much appreciated!

(For reference, our wedding colors are black and white with an accent of black and whtie stripes here and there. We want a fancy event, with simple yet chic touches.)
