Magnolia Plantation & Gardens is from 1676 and boasts the role of America's Most Beautiful Gardens!
We highly recommend you take ALL of the history tours this location offers.
If your venue is the Carriage House, they do offer a small Bridal Suite. If you choose to use the space, you might want to put your dress/suit on inside the suite but then step outside for the photo part. Many of our couples have done this option and the photos turn out beautiful!
But other than that, you'll have to get ready off site. The Bridal Suites at Magnolia are truly just areas for you all to store your belongings and have a quiet place to sit for a minute.
There are many gorgeous hotels 30 minutes away in downtown Charleston.
Check out this blog post of our extensive list of the best hotels, air bnb & historic inns to get ready at in Charleston for your wedding
Your ceremony location will depend on which venue at Magnolia you've chosen!
The Veranda: you can do the White Bridge Lawn or the Back Lawn
The Conservatory: you can have your ceremony past the red bridge on the lawn overlooking the Ashley River
The Carriage House: Under the 400 year old Wedding Oak, or by the Ashley River
The Pavillion: under the swooping limbs of an old oak tree (our personal favorite location)
Your reception options are either The Veranda, The Conservatory, The Pavillion or The Carriage House!
We LOVE seeing outdoor receptions at the Carriage House, so don't rule out doing a tented event there.
100% of your photos can be done at Magnolia! The property is huge, so please make sure you reserve a golf cart to take us around.
Side note: Magnolia can host up to 2 weddings per day and if another wedding is going on, there are certain areas we will not be allowed to use at all, just like that wedding won't be allowed into your 'area'.
For instance, if your wedding is at the Carriage House and another couple has booked the Veranda, we won't be allowed to use the famous White Bridge for photos since that area is part of the Veranda package.
Plan to take photos for 2 hours before the ceremony regardless of if you're doing a First Look or not.
The colorful azaleas blooming in spring. It's honestly one of the most magical sights.
But we also love the avenue of oaks! Which is there all year, not just spring (-;
