Rustic Weddings

A rustic fairy tale wedding is a dream for many couples, and when we recently hosted our 22ND Annual Bridal Showcase, our mock reception setup on Anne Hill Courtyard made that very apparent. A rustic theme for a wedding has always been popular but seeing the setup of Anne Hill seemed to light a spark with many of our Brides. Below are a couple of ideas that will help take your breath away on your perfect day!  The photo that was the inspiration for this week’s blog post, farm tables are a must for a rustic feel! When going with a rustic feel, simple and classic attire is definitely a win. Can tree stubs be elegant? Of course they can! Burlap, wildflowers and even pinecones can create stunning table décor. Out of the box reception and ceremony décor are staples for a rustic wedding!

To Favor or Not to Favor, That is the Question!

Whether or not to have favors at wedding receptions has been the topic of discussion for most of the weddings we have recently hosted at our venue.  While there are pros and cons to both sides of this discussion we love having a wonderful favor here at the Inn, especially if it’s something unique and special to the couple or edible…we always love edible! Check out a few ideas below to bring into the discussion in favor of favors! Candy Displays! Not your typically favor, but something guests can take home and enjoy or dive into during the reception!   Thank you notes with a small treat are always a classic. Unique and special? How about mini potted plants? Sure they require a little love and care but they are super cute and fun! Something inspired by the groom, like his favorite whiskey or token, while not kid friendly, your guests will love it! And lastly mini cakes, a smaller version of the wedding cake, will always be a hit!    

Signature Drinks!

 Signature cocktails are an amazing way to add a personal touch to your wedding reception, especially if you’re wedding as a special theme such as regional like southern or tropical or seasonal like winter and fall.  Summertime fun and you wedding guests are having a blast and a little liquid courage never hurt anyone that wanted to hit the dance floor. Combining a few favorites is always a good call so peach, mason jars and bourbon can work great! Even if your wedding isn’t in the warmer months sometimes a different take on a seasonal drink like apple cider will make sure no one is feeling those winter blues!                           Don’t worry signature drinks don’t always have to feature alcohol, they can be any fun beverage that you enjoy!

22nd Annual Bridal Showcase Wrap Up!

Another awesome Bridal Showcase at The Carolina Inn has come and gone! Full of amazing vendors and happy couples this just might have been our best show yet! Confetti was the theme this year and we think it truly inspired a fun, vibrant, atmosphere! Below is a sneak peek of the event, we won’t post everything though so you’ll just have to come next year and see all the fun for yourself.
