I went to an amazing wedding in Charleston at The Wickliffe House.  It was the best wedding we’ve been to.  Took place in 2007 and we are still talking about it…the setting!  Amazing.

OH I am SO glad I found this on here!!! Charleston was our original destination for our wedding so we actually went there to look at venues!!! We looked at Founders Hall at Charlestowne Landing (they were $2750 I believe) and they had a couple other venues as well at Charlestown Landing (The Legare Waring House I think it was called). We also looked at The American Theater through Patrick Properties. Another beatuiful place is Magnolia Plantations and Gardens. I can send you my founders hall pictures if you would like. It is a brand new venue that is meant for weddings. They provide all tables and chairs and there is a HUGE catering kitchen inside of it! ITs very natural and beautiful.

We’re getting married at the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation in March. We’re doing ceremony and reception there. It was $2000. I’ve also heard Old Santee Canal Park is beautiful and inexpensive – $500 I think. It may also include tables and chairs.

Hey! I’m a Charleston bride trying to keep it under 10k as well.

I’m getting married at the Old Santee Canal Park (http://www.oldsanteecanalpark.org). I’m renting both the main lawn and the interpretive center for the reception for $1800. If you just rent one or the other it’s cheaper but I wanted both in case of rain, plus it will be super hot in July so I want guests to be able to go inside.

If you want to keep a lower budget there are some lower priced options but you have to be open minded! Here are a few places that I found (some of them I’m not entirely sure of the price but I’ve heard good things about them:

Lowcountry Senior Center (http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/lowcountry-senior-center-charleston/481a94c446368ccf.html)

Savannah’s (http://www.gatheringguide.com/event_directory/sc_south_carolina/event_venue_1677.html)

Village Hall (http://www.villagehallinfo.com/index.html)

Some of my favorites:

Children’s Museum (http://explorecml.org/cml/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=34&Itemid=56)

Cypress Hall (http://www.ccprc.com/index.aspx?nid=850)

Edisto Hall (http://www.ccprc.com/index.aspx?NID=846)

Hope this helps! I researched places for a LOOOOONG time before I came up with mine…

I’m doing the Citadel Beach House on Isle of Palms.  $4000 rental fee.  We’ve found that bringing in your own caterer can save lots.

I’m going with the Daniel Island Club in Charleston….total rental fees are $2000 for ceremony and reception.  Their rental price includes alot of freebies/rental charges that you wouldn’t normally come across, and the staff there are VERY helpful in planning and suggesting area vendors, and also working with your budget on food.  You can have the ceremony outdoors or indoors, and same thing with the reception/cocktails/whatever.  Haven’t had the wedding YET, but they get two thumbs from me during the planning process!

I am doing Magnolia Plantation in N. Charleston in the off season for 3000. (However this does not include tables and chairs.) (My budget is 13,000 and we’re doing it.) BUT— they also have a few other venues on the property such as the Conservatory I believe. Check it out. It is lovely. Also, if you want to be budget careful- think off season on a Friday or even on a public beach to cut cost.
