Hello! I live in Charlotte south east Ballantyne area.  I was planning a wedding at the Firethorn Country Club, great place and they give you all day unlike some places who give you your 4-6 hour window and your out! After to much stress over the planning we ended up  going with Destination Wedding at Sandals Royal Bahamian and it saved us almost 10 grand.

I lived in the RTP area for 9 years and was married this past summer in Asheville.

@Miss B to Mrs. Z: The Arboretum is a beautiful place to get married and your dress is lovely. 🙂

@Bichon Frise:  Have you heard of polished nail bar? i believe they have locations in south end, southpark and myers park. that might be a great place to start – get your nails done and drinks, followed by some dinner (sushi would be my choice, Nikkos!) then i would probably head to a bar (far from the epicenter! haha) something more like thomas street tavern or solstice in noda. though i love some country music and in all my years of living in charlotte i have never been to coyote joes – i’ve been drying to go! so that might make my list.

There is also a place in steele creek/160 area that you can paint on canvas and its BYOB – tons of fun, i’ve dont it with my sister a few times http://cajuncanvas.com/

Hi all!!  I’m getting married at St. Peter’s Catholic in Uptown, and we’re having the reception at the Marriott City Center in Uptown as well. 

I got my dress at NY Bride, and I got my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses at Dar-Lynn’s.  They are located in Matthews (about 20 minutes outside of Charlotte), and they give you a 30% discount if you buy more than one dress!  My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are this (but in watermelon)

And they retailed for $200 and over at all of the other salons, but I got them for $147 at Dar-Lynn’s.  Worth the effort of calling around! 🙂 

 

I’m having L.Hoke Photography do my pictures (they are located about an hour outside of Charlotte and do exquisite work).  They were voted SC photographers of the year for many years in a row.  I’m having the Bloom Room do my cake and Cheesecake, etc. do my cake!

Whew!  So much planning!

@Kenic315:  St. Peters is so pretty! we looked at getting married there but ended up at St. Matts in ballantyne since its my home parish. We also looked at the Marriott in center city but ended up in south park! i love the idea of having your wedding in the city and the proximity of the church to the hotel is great too for guests!  Glad everything is coming together for you! those Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are lovely!

I’m a NC bride also. Seems there are no Bees near me or at least active….

Im getting married at Redbone Willies. Its a old general store, bed and breakfast and has an event barn in Vale. November 24th is the day, vintage, rustic, laidback, southern is the way.

Dress shopping has been a nightmare so far, I have so many ideas pinned and in my basement but finding a hard time finding my “start place”…haha.

 

Hope everyone is having a fun time…

We are havig both our ceremony and reception at the North Hills Club, so excited!  They were actually very reasonable on price, but you have to use their caterer.

Its 7 months away and I am soo excited!
