I have seen multiple posts asking about pictures of the Confederate Home (including me!) and The Old Exchange. After some crazy googling and searching through photographers portfolios I found a beautiful wedding of a Charleston bride who had her ceremony at the Confederate Home and reception at The Old Exchange: Hope this helps! I know it helped me. If anyone else has photos they can add, please do!

@Tiffner: Hi! I am new to WeddingBee and trying to plan a Charleston wedding. I am looking to have it at the Confederate Home but have been unable to get a hold of anyone about renting the venue. Do you have any suggestions? Did it take you a while to reach them? I called the following number and left a message earlier this week:(843) 722-2026. Thanks for any input! Wanted to make sure I was trying to contact them the right way 🙂 Congrats on your upcoming wedding! So soon!

@hmariefos: The woman who takes care of the property actually lives on the property. She doesn’t work very hours. Try calling around 830 or 9 in morning. She never called me back…I had to keep calling until I actually caught her in the office.

@mullinscmu: I had the same experience
Try not to let that deter you though – she’s a really sweet little old lady and the place is amazing. We really wanted a dj and dancing otherwise we would have had our reception here.

I just had my ceremony location (reception at McCradys) at the confederate home on Saturday. It was fantastic!! I do suggest contacting the lady early in the morning, they don’t have a very good system but it is well worth it! I loved it and Saturday was beautiful. I’ll hopefully be posting pictures soon!

I will tell you all a secret about Mrs. Montagu- she prefers to talk to gentlemen. My wedding planner told me this and I had my fiance call and set up a meeting; we walked in with both sets of parents for the tour and she loved us all coming together so she said yes to everything! She’s nice but you just have to win her over 🙂
