Southern Weddings

Two things I absolute adore are weddings and the South, so when the two combine, I love them even more! Recently I've become obsessed with plantation weddings. In my opinion, they're quintessentially southern, and there's nothing more perfect! If I were planning my very own plantation wedding, these are some of the necessities I would need:

The perfect plantation,

a bouquet of my favorite flowers, peonies, 

a gorgeous lace dress,

monogrammed glasses for cocktail hour, with my new last initial, of course,

a picture of my groom and I under the trees,

pink and white peonies everywhere, 

and a yummy red velvet cake for dessert.

Have you ever been to a plantation wedding? What's your dream wedding location? Have a great day!

  3. Speaking of plantation weddings, Charleston is the absolute perfect location for one! I've seen many on all of my trips to Charleston! I love all of these wedding ideas..Monogram glasses are for sure a must!

  4. Gorgeous inspiration! I adore those monogrammed "H" glasses- my old initial :)

  5. Breathtaking pictures! I love the look of a southern wedding - so classy!

  6. Well doesn't this just make me want to have a wedding!! I love the idea of a plantation setting! Unfortunately I'm going to have to find something w the same southern feel closer to the city! My church is in the center of the city! Or... I hope my guests are up for the drive haha!

  7. okay. yah. that's like the perfect wedding. Now if only I could find a groom!

  8. I've never been to a plantation wedding but I've always dreamed of having one myself. Unfortunately living in the mid-west there aren't many plantations haha.
    I can tell by your inspiration you're going to have a gorgeous wedding.

  9. stop it. now I just want to run off and get married!

  10. Wonderful photos. I am lucky enough to be 'tying the knot' aboard the Mohican this summer in Lake George, NY.

  11. This is basically exactly how I'm planning my wedding! Love it!

  12. Ahh, a plantation wedding. Is this Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana. Our family loves it there and plans to go this Christmas.
