If you looking for unforgettable and affordable wedding. Check out lowcountry wedding ideas you will love.

My daughter got married in a beautiful lowcountry wedding in Bluffton, South Carolina. It was an enchanting weekend filled with warm, sunny weather, with loving family and friends. The theme she picked was tropical decor of whites and pinks. The gorgeous lowcountry oak trees and marsh views was the setting for the backdrop of the ceremony and reception.

Planning Your LowCountry Wedding

When it comes to figuring out what time of year you want to get married consider the season and temperature. Spring has amazing weather but it can also can be raining, Summer is very hot in the lowcountry so we decided for a Spring wedding in May.

We had the wedding in the early evening which made it even cooler.

10 Ideas For Our Lowcountry wedding

  1. Venue

For the venue we pick Belfair Plantation which is a beautiful lowcountry property. It was perfect for what my daughter was looking for. She wanted water views in the background and this venue had this and the most important it was available. Since some of these venues have a 1 year waiting list.

2. Location of the wedding

My daughter wanted the wedding outdoors. Having nature as the background creates beautiful scenery which means if you are on a budget less is spent on wedding decor.

3. Whether to have a tent or not.

If you are worried about the possibility of inclement weather for your outdoor wedding. Consider setting up a tent, its worth the added expense to keep you happy and stress free. The money you save in flowers and decoration by having it outside can be used for renting a tent.

Whether it’s a small or big wedding the flexibility of having unlimited space does make it less stressful. If you plan on having a large guest list, the open air and the outdoor venue makes it easy for people to move around.

The guest list for Leanna’s wedding was 100 people, this is considered a medium size wedding. She wanted to have no tent which makes it a gamble with the weather but in case of rain we did have the option of bringing the wedding inside their club house. We did same money by doing it this way.

With the help of a lighting company she had them set up a lighting all over the tables in a tent like design.

The ceremony turned out amazing. Leanna used roses of pink and white that were stuck into the lawn by a stake. Later we used the same roses for the centerpieces. Great way to save in so many ways.

The best parts of the wedding ceremony was having the groom’s family do a special blessing of the couple and my son officiated the wedding. It’s very easy to become an officient. It just needs some planning and rehearsal. To learn what is involved here is a helpful Wedding Officiant Guide.

7. Party Favors

To keep costs down we made our own favors and welcome bags. We used oyster shells for wedding favors and I painted the welcome bags with water colors.

8. Simple Table Setting:

The benefits of having the venue outside you don’t have to spend a million dollars on flowers. We had the flower designer use the same flowers for the ceremony inside the glass vases for the tables. This creates a minimal vibe on those tables. Less is more.
