Deciding on your Destination?
April 22, 2013
Over the last few years Charleston has gained much popularity from being announced Conde Nast Travelers Reader’s Choice TOP US CITY for 2011 and 2012 to being one of the top US Destinations on the Rise by TripAdvisor. People all over the world are learning more and more about The Holy City and are falling in love with its charm.
Charleston is one of the top destinations for weddings in the US. It is reported that 2,925 weddings were held in Charleston County, alone, for 2012, and about half of the wedding licenses issued each year are to visitors. Even celebrities are making their way to the historic city for their ‘I dos’ (Who can forget Blake Lively’s southern Boone Hall wedding to Ryan Reynolds?).
Destination weddings are easier in a lot of ways and can be tolling in others. When planning a destination wedding it is important to secure reliable, trusting vendors who can handle all the to-dos while you are away. One benefit to the destination wedding is having less to worry about. You make initial decisions and the rest is taken care of for you. Destination weddings tend to be more intimate, personal and more affordable (believe it or not!). Having one extra guest at a wedding can up the bill $150-$250.
