Yes! We recommend hiring a Charleston wedding planner first as this is an area we can assist with including venue recommendations, going on site visits, and venue comparisons. We keep on file an extensive list of all Charleston venues including rates, capacity, non-Saturday discounts and low season discounts. For week-of packages, the coordinator is not hired until the venue and/or vendors are booked.
The average wedding cost is $25,000. This would typically be for 125 people on a Saturday, with a catered meal, cocktail hour, DJ, photographer and modest décor and flowers. If the guest count is significantly higher, you want to add a band, lighting, draping and more elaborate décor you can expect the price to go well over $30,000. If you aren’t certain what your Charleston wedding will cost we offer a $199 wedding budget review which will allow you to price out your dream wedding before locking into any contracts.
Yes! If you hire us to assist with wedding budget, venue selections, vendor selections and decor, we can save you money.

We have a document detailing how we save our clients money, often as much as our entire fee!
This depends on whether your wedding ceremony and wedding reception are in one or two locations, type of venue, and if any staff is provided by the venue, guest count, and amount of set up. We have planned weddings in which the ceremony and reception were in separate locations, weddings with a guest count of 300, and weddings at the SC Aquarium, Magnolia Plantation Carriage House and Veranda, and The Gibbes Museum of Art all of which have extremely short set up times.
When you send us a completed potential client questionnaire we will put together a quote for you which we can then discuss and amend if necessary. From there we would write up a contract which we would both sign and request the 25% non-refundable retainer. Once payment is received we set up an organizational system for you and get started right away on the budget and venue selection.
