I was just newly engaged within the past week and I am already stressing over venues! I had my eyes on Lowdnes Grove (like many of you) but it is just out of my budget. The f/b minimum is just ridiculous! The Citadel Beach House seems to be pretty nice, it’s just really hard to get in touch with them. Even the availabilty form on thier website is really confusing! Any of you Charleston bees have any stories or tips?

@neyshayjosh: no tips in terms of contact, but do know that it is still open to the citadel alumni (I think even the porches) during your event. For us it was too expensive not to be private. do you get the citadel discount? It might be worth it, then.
how about checking out Cottage on the Creek? (Not to be confused with lighthouse on the creek, for that same beachy vibe, right on Shem creek).

@toothfairy910: Thanks! Yes, we will have the Citadel discount. We have just read that people outside of the event will be able to walk around during the event. They also told me that I wouldn’t be able to use some of the decor I have been so excited to use as a part of the reception. Citadel Beach House was not my first choice, Lowndes Grove was my dream venue but was just too darn expensive. Guess the search is still on.
