Summer weddings in Savannah… so enchanting.
The courtyard of our Savannah Vacation Rental perfect for summer receptions.
Savannah draws brides and grooms from all over the country. It is a magnificent city for a Destination Wedding, thanks to it’s stately architecture and lovingly maintained historic squares. This is true any time of year, winter through summer.
Our Savannah Vacation Home at 109 West is an ideal choice for Destination Weddings that include family and close friends. The grand, historic home comfortably sleeps 26 people in ten bedrooms, two sleeper sofas, and one trundle bed. The property has large common areas and three separate lodging units–the Main House, the Garden Suite, and the Carriage House. In addition, the Main House features a Pent House that is very private, (it is accessed through the Main House). As a result, this Savannah Vacation Home provides an ample amount of both privacy and togetherness.
Many marriage ceremonies have been held at 109 West House, and even more rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. Local caterers know the kitchens well (we will happily recommend caterers if you like). The property is elegantly and comfortably furnished. You may not want to leave.
If you’re thinking of getting married this summer, consider having a Destination Wedding in Savannah. Invite the closest members of your families and your dearest friends. Make it a special event for you all.
Weddings traditionally take place on weekends. This is understandable, given that the majority of people work Monday through Friday, and it’s easier for guests to attend if they don’t have to miss any work. Indeed, the bride and groom themselves can work before a weekend wedding.
Yet there are good reasons to break out of the traditional weekend wedding mold, especially if you’re having a Destination Wedding.
It may be easier to book musicians and caterers for your midweek Savannah wedding.
1. Midweek travel is often more affordable. Discounts at our luxury Savannah Guest Homes are available Sunday through Thursday. Lodging discounts may greatly reduce the overall cost of a Savannah Destination Wedding.
2. Don’t even try to work. In truth, no one close to the bride and groom gets much work done the week prior to the nuptials; everyone is too caught up with last minute details and pre-wedding socializing. There’s the bachelor party, the bachelorette party, and so forth. There are last minute dress-fittings, and appointments for hair and nails. There’s maybe even some drama. It’s all part of the big day.
3. Have a weekend for last minute details. If you get married in the middle of the week, there is plenty of time to take care of last minute details (see #2) the weekend before your nuptials.
Giving up a few days of work may seem a lot to ask of friends and family, and it is; but it may actually be for the best. Most Destination Weddings tend to be small, with the bride and groom and only their very closest friends and family in attendance. These are the people in your life who will want to take a few days off work to stand by your side as you say “I do”.
Make your relationship special from the outset. Have a Destination Wedding at one of our luxury Savannah Vacation Homes during the week.
Please call (912) 232-6633 to inquire about discounted rates for weddings scheduled for Sunday through Thursday.
What is your vision of the perfect wedding? Do you imagine the bride and groom exchanging vows on a wind-swept beach, in an historic church, or before an ornate fountain? Do you picture the happy couple driving away in a horse-drawn carriage or an antique car? Do you imagine a hearty feast, and dancing until dawn?
Any of these dreams may be realized if you have a Savannah Wedding. Savannah has stunning historic architecture. It has dozens of manicured parks with stone fountains. It has majestic trees draped with Spanish moss, and a climate that invites outdoor ceremonies. Right outside of Savannah is Tybee Island, which boasts beaches, parks, and a lighthouse.
The wedding party may stay at one (or several) of our Savannah Vacation Villas. The house at 109 West will easily accommodate a rehearsal dinner, a ceremony, and a reception. Or simply use it as a base, where up to 26 friends and family can relax while in town for your Savannah Wedding.
Whether you live in Savannah or elsewhere, we hope you’ll consider hosting your wedding in this beautiful city.
