Humidity got you a little limp? Grab a copy of the new summer issue of Charleston Weddings magazineâ€”or snag your iPad to visit our website â€”then find a shady spot to chill out. Weâ€™ve got ideas aplenty to help you keep your cool while getting wed here in the Holy City. Here are some highlights.
Play With Pink
Being a Southern publication, we see our fair share of pink-infused weddings. But hold on to your Sunday hats, yâ€™all, what weâ€™re seeing of late ainâ€™t your mamaâ€™s pink! As an ode to the sassy color, we feature three pink-inspired weddings that show you how to play with the palette. Be sure to check them out, especially â€śBold & Bright,â€ť the story of Cagney Elrod and Zack Steinâ€™s Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding by Southern Protocol and Paige Winn Photo. The shot of Cagneyâ€™s stunning bouquet from stems won our first-ever â€śpick the coverâ€ť poll on Facebook.
Fashion For Days
While we love a well-penned novel, we really were into The Great Gatsby movie more for its costumes than anything else. And weâ€™re not alone. Bridal designers went all-out this year to create some of the most stunning beaded, vintage-inspired gowns weâ€™ve seen in ages. Shot at Ashley Hallâ€™s stunning McBee House (where youâ€”yes, youâ€”can get your bridal portrait shot, and where you can wed on campus) by Corbin Gurkin, our story showcasing the looks gives inspiration in spades. Find your dream dress here. Oh, and if youâ€™re ready to dress your wedding party in anything but matchy-matchy looks? Click here for the best ideas around.
