A wedding in Charleston?! Who would have guessed?
We'll be the first to admit — we didn't think that Charleston Wedding Week
, the product of Charleston Weddings
magazine and The Wedding Row
blog, would make it past its inaugural year. What can we say, we think the whole Charleston-as-wedding-destination thing doesn't really warrant a week of activities.
But you know what they say about Charleston weddings? They make a hell of a lot of money. They do say that, don't they? Regardless, Charleston Wedding Week is back next year, held Jan. 24-27 2018 in various downtown locations. The week features workshops, "signature experiences," fashion events, and parties. Woo hoo.
Last year's Wedding Week did feature some pretty big deal speakers — like Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty
and local party planner extraordinaire Tara Guerard
— so maybe this year will bring more of the same. This city does host about 100 weddings a week, so we know the audience for all things wedding-related is out there. Starting saving that dough, brides-to-be. You'll need it.
