    Planning a Small Wedding

    Wedding weekend logistics can be, to say the least, complicated. Welcome parties, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, receptions and bridal luncheons leave out of town guests scrambling from venue to venue, while the bride and groom play event coordinator. Action packed wedding weekends are fun, but many couples prefer fun without all the fuss.

    Style without the Stress

    So what’s the quickest way to simplify your wedding weekend? Scale it back. If you can trim down your guest list to your closest friends and family, you may find that an elegant (and stress free) wedding is within your reach. Limiting the number of venues may help to simplify logistics and maximize budget as well.

    Planning a Small Wedding in Charleston

    The Governor’s House Inn is a popular option for bridal party accommodations, but the space can also function as a wedding ceremony or bridal luncheon venue.

    Ideal for laid back locals or exclusive destination weddings, the inn can accommodate up to 24 overnight guests*, and special package rates are available to anyone booking the entire house. Guests can comfortably attend a courtyard or front porch ceremony, and other common spaces (sitting rooms, verandas and a large dining room) are available for mingling.

    The inn is within walking distance to restaurants, bars and reception venues that would be happy to host an after party, and pedi cab transport could be arranged to make the back and forth even easier. Guests can return from an evening out and awake to a lovely bridal luncheon that is mere steps from their bedrooms.

    Booking the Inn

    Wedding Packages start at $10,600. Visit our Wedding Page to learn more, or call 843-720-2070 to speak with the Innkeeper.

    *Please speak with the Innkeeper regarding guest capacity. Ceremony space is limited.
