Hilton Head Island Weddings
Hilton Head Island is my happy place. It’s our family’s vacation spot of choice and has been for years. We’re on the lookout currently for our second home here. It’s within 2 hours of Charleston, SC and 45 minutes of Savannah, GA.
Being a wedding planner on Hilton Head Island makes serving the surrounds areas of Okatie, Bluffton, and Beaufort a dream. There is no more pristine stretch of coast on the Atlantic Seaboard than in South Carolina. Hilton Head boasts miles upon miles of white sand beaches, Golf Courses, Club Houses, Beach Clubs, Manors and venues to host a wedding. Palm Trees will keep your guests shaded and cool while they wait for the ceremony to begin. Mint Juleps and spiked sweet tea will wet their whistles and get them ready to celebrate the happy couple! Hilton Head has marshes, nature preserves and yacht basins that serve as beautiful, nautical scenery.
You are likely to have some uninvited spectators in the form of Alligators watching from the banks of the lagoons. Don’t worry though they have a health fear of humans and I suspect they are more afraid of us than we are of them. Like they saying goes a fed alligator is a dead alligator. Spend a couple days in Hilton Head and you’ll come to love the creatures. Our little one sure does. She affectionately calls them all “Bumpy” and chit chats and blabbers on to them about Lord knows what! I find that guests often spend a considerable amount of time admiring them and watching them sunbathe on the banks. If your goal is to make your guest comfortable and at home for your wedding then there is no better place than Hilton Head.
The island is full of top notch resorts and condos for your enjoyment. There is a secluded island just a boat ride away where the guests can relax on deserted beaches and tour the Rum Distillery to their heart’s content. Daufuskie Island is home to the Geechee who’s descendants still inhabit the island and make some incredible moonshine called Scrap Iron. Be sure to include the island tour as a “must-see” in your guest’s weekend itinerary. The boys can spend the day golfing while the girls get pampered in any one of the island’s many spas. If tennis is your game then there are numerous Van De Meer Tennis centers that you can pick up a game at any time of day.
If you would prefer a more traditional setting for your wedding Hilton Head is only 30 minutes from Bluffton which is home to Oldfield Plantation. You couldn’t find a more elegant and stately venue. It’s one of the most gorgeous venues. I just know you’ll love it too!
Get in touch with us today to schedule a tour of one of these amazing venues. We’d like nothing better than to help you plan your wedding in Hilton Head.
