As the capital city of West Virginia, Charleston is full of locations that would serve as ideal backdrops for your wedding day. Whether you're on the hunt for a destination that features the natural beauty of the Elk or Kanawha Rivers, or hoping to find a venue that focuses on the city's urban developments, you'll discover that Charleston wedding venues are just what the love doctor ordered.
Folks in Charleston have been known to embrace their rustic roots. With wedding venues in Charleston situated alongside local rivers or in historic homes, renovated barns and even quaint inns capture some of the rugged spirit of the nearby Appalachians.
There are also more traditional options by way of hotels, country clubs and banquet halls that are large enough to accommodate a big group. Choosing to get hitched in Charleston is a step in the right direction, but have you nailed down the logistics of yourwedding budget?
Most couples spend around $20,000 on weddings in Charleston. Of your total budget, roughly fifty percent of the budget will go toward your venue. Tour the facility, ask questions and make sure you have everything you want for a price you can afford before moving forward.
Three miles east of downtown Charleston is the Yeager Airport. The airport is convenient if your area is serviced by the small airport, but you'll find more flights available from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, which is nearly 200 miles west of the city. Either option will be convenient for your out-of-town guests arriving for your wedding in Charleston.
After arriving in town, you'll be ready to put down your bags at one of the city's comfortable accommodations. For around $120 a night, you should be able to find a nice hotel to rest between wedding festivities. Do you plan to host a larger number of guests?Hotel blocks are a convenient option for couples who have lots of friends and family coming into town.
If hotels are scarce, try the nearby city of Huntington for additional accommodation options. Wherever your guests stay, let them know what time they need to be in Charleston for the wedding festivities.
Like most parts of the East Coast, Charleston experiences humidity nearly year around. If you don't factor in the unpredictable rain and thunder storms the area experiences, count on four distinct seasons in the city. The warm season, from May through September, is especially prone to rain and thunder. Perhaps that's why most couples in West Virginia get hitched during the fall; it helps avoid temperamental weather. Winters can be quite cold in Charleston, with snow falling to create a backdrop for a white wedding. Lastly, spring is a great time to get hitched in the city, as spring months are typically a bit drier and venues are less crowded than they are in the fall.
