Popular wedding website TheKnot.com found among couples who were married in 2013 that almost a quarter of those exchanged nuptials in a destination wedding. Add to that the fact couples are spending more on their weddings (average is almost $30,000) and they are putting a focus on creating an experience for their guests.
So with a host of attractions, venues and activities for out-of-town guests, Charleston is an ideal spot for a wedding. One of the most beautiful places to say “I do” is on the waters of the Charleston harbor with the city skyline as the romantic backdrop for a special day.
The bride and groom and their guests can board the Carolina Belle for dining and dancing under the stars. Charleston Harbor Tours provides inclusive packages as well as simply providing a venue where you can bring aboard your own food and entertainment.
The Carolina Belle is perfect for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers and even post-wedding parties. Our team can assist with the details from recommending vendors for decorations, floral arrangements and cakes to helping choose entertainment and menus and setting up transportation.
With Charleston’s great climate, you can book your event on a boat just about any time of the year. Plus, you hardly need to bother with the décor – your cruise around the harbor provides views of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, USS Yorktown and the church steeples of the Holy City skyline. Plus, you might even catch a glimpse of some playful dolphins helping you celebrate.
