Welcome to our list of the top 7 wedding venues around Greenville, SC. Before we dive into our favorite wedding venues, we first want to tell you about our wedding so you can learn what stressed us out the most, and how you can plan ahead and make decisions which will help you have the most enjoyable and memorable day of your lives!
We got married at Pretty Place Chapel and had our wedding reception at Artisan Traders in West Greenville. Pretty Place operates on an hourly schedule, so we got ready in separate locations, meaning there were 3 total locations we traveled to throughout the day. This was STRESSFUL! We aren’t saying to not choose Pretty Place, actually we have several weddings at Pretty Place this year, but our #1 suggestion when picking a venue is to consider how easy everything will be if you’re doing it all in one place. From getting ready to the ceremony, to the sparkler sendoff, if you can do everything in one place, we can promise that you, your family, and your guests, will be way less stressed! Honestly, our wedding was somewhat of a logistical nightmare! Save yourself the headache and choose a venue that accommodates you to do everything all in one place.
