One of the first and most exciting tasks a bride gets to complete following getting engaged (after calling her mom;) is finding the perfect wedding venue. As enchanting as this may be, it can be difficult to decide among so many beautiful options & locations! We personally think much thought and consideration should go into picking just the right one. The venue plays such a powerful role on the wedding day. It sets the stage for the style and aesthetic of your wedding, the atmosphere and culture, and is ultimately the backdrop for everything you dream your wedding day to be. On such a day, the layout of your venue can determine how your guests will enjoy their time, where they will resort to and how they will remember your day. The venue you decide on also directly affects the way your pictures will look and ultimately what you will remember for years to come. Well, we get you. We’ve compiled a list of our FAVORITE wedding venues in the greater Southeast to help you out. And dang. Let me just say, there are some GOOD ones in this roundup. We’ll get married again at The Swan House, thank you.
