The Weekday Bride

A few years ago, a weekday wedding would have been out of the question. But now, its common ground for weddings in the top wedding destination, Charleston SC! Most brides, grooms, family and friends are coming from all parts of the country and abroad to celebrate the big-day in Charleston with most wanting to make a vacation out of it to explore the area, food and culture that places it on the map for one of the most coveted cities of the south. Think about this. Venues in Charleston are expensive. They range from an average of $3,000-$5,000 on peak weekends depending on the style of venue you'd like. Weekends in Charleston range from Friday-Sunday. REALLY. Where I come from, weddings were only on Saturdays!

Venues are giving excellent discounts for Monday-Thursday events, yes this means weddings too! Brides are saving upwards of 25-50% off the rental cost of the venue just for having it on a Monday.

Venues that offer these types of week-day discounts are:

Magnolia Plantation

Legare Waring House

Founders Hall

The Island House

William Aiken House

Venues aren't the only ones giving discounts be sure to ask your photographer, DJ and planner if they have any special rates for Monday-Thursday weddings. Chances are they are willing to offer a discount or an additional service on for no additional cost.

If your guests are traveling, consider a weekday wedding because most likely they will make your wedding trip their vacation.
