The winter season in Charleston, SC is cool but not too cold! It brings us fond scenes of sipping hot chocolate by the fire, cozy snuggle sessions, family get-togethers and holiday parties. While it’s a busy time of the year, there’s something amazing about it. As a result, throwing a winter wedding in Charleston, SC should not be overlooked. Yes, it’s tricky to add another family get-together around the holiday season, but if this magical season inspires you, we encourage you to go for it!
Choosing a Winter Wedding Date
Trying to avoid every friendsgiving, secret santa, and holiday party is nearly impossible. Focus on what you and your fiance want and ideally what accommodates your closest immediate family and wedding party members. If your family is typically already all together for a holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, then it might actually be easier for them to travel in and attend multiple occasions.
Advantages of a Winter Wedding in Charleston, SC are:
- Less humidity
- It’s a unique time of the year to get married
- If you are here for a destination wedding it will probably be very comfortable outside compared to colder climates
- Great wedding color inspiration from warm colors and deep reds to winter whites
- The folks in suits or black tie will thank you with the cooler temperatures
- Family, friends and guests won’t be experiencing wedding fatigue from all the other weddings during the spring/summer
New Year’s Eve Weddings
New Year’s Eve is typically a popular wedding date, but let’s face it, throwing an amazing celebration to close out the year and ring in a new one is super exciting. This unique holiday makes for a memorable wedding! However, be sure to reserve your location, hotel block and vendors as soon as possible. With so many parties that day, private or public, availability may be limiting your options on choosing the exact vendors you’d like.
