South Carolina Waterfront Wedding Venues: Your Wedding Venue Planning Guide for South Carolina and Beyond

Travel along the Coastal Plains of South Carolina and you will encounter sprawling beaches of golden sands and idyllic resorts to carry away your worries. The likes of Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach spring to mind, as do historic Spanish-moss covered trees interspersed with the iconic sabal palmetto, the state tree. Inland, rivers, such as the famed Chattooga River, cut through the terrain while lakes pepper the landscape. Wedding venues have sprung up from these varied shores, offering breathtaking vistas of the lapping Atlantic waters and treasured freshwater locales.

Rustic Romance to Elevated Elegance

Beach and waterfront weddings often carry a relaxed vibe and breezy ambience. While this may be the case, the many cities and towns along South Carolina’s coast boast venues of varied style and sophistication. Walk down a grassy aisle under the gentle sway of palm trees or say your vows within sleek banquet halls, the choices are endless.

Apples and...Peaches

Coastal and waterfront sites suiting an array of wedding styles are found beyond the borders of South Carolina. Consider heading further south into Georgia. From landlocked areas to the ocean you will encounter similar shores to the state’s Carolina neighbor as well as forests, lakes, and rivers. Georgia is also home to large urban centers like Atlanta and Savannah. These metropolitan areas feature picturesque streets paved in cobblestones to bustling highways reflecting the bustle of contemporary life.

Planning for Weather in The Palmetto State

Humidity is a huge factor in the climate of South Carolina. A subtropical region, the summers are long and hot while the winters are generally mild, sometimes cold. Being on the ocean impacts the weather greatly with drier periods throughout the year. One such time frame is in the middle of spring between the months of April and May. The fall is another season that is marked by milder temperatures that allow refuge from the Carolina heat. As such, it’s a popular time for weddings, with 38 percent of couples holding their nuptials in the autumn in 2015.
