We Like to Party
Bookend fêtes at Charleston Wedding Week™ are the perfect way to frame this weeklong fest
For the bride, groom, guests, and everyone in between: Sunday morning and Friday night fêtes full of fun, fashion, and friends like Charleston Animal Society and Belk are the icing on the Charleston Wedding Week™ presented by Diamonds Direct cake.
First, join us at Diamonds Direct in Mount Pleasant on Sunday, January 22 from noon to 2 p.m. for their Charleston Wedding Week™ kick-off party, Diamonds & Dogs. Snack on delicious brunch bites from Thurston Southern Catering, lounge on the diamond dog patio, enter to win a diamond necklace, and shop (specially-selected jewels will be out for your browsing and buying pleasure; plus, you’ll score 20 percent off wedding bands!). The sweetest part? The sale will benefit Charleston Animal Society, whose adoption team will be on site to answer any questions about finding your new furry friend. Girl’s best friend, meet man’s best friend.
On the other end of the festivities, enjoy a mix of revelry and relaxation Friday evening, January 27 (6-9 p.m.) at a Pop-Up Party brought to you by Belk to enjoy a mix of revelry and relaxation. This can’t-miss soirée will take place at The Cedar Room, one of the hottest new venues in town. With the gurus at WED dressing the scene in luxe, Cuban-flavored décor, it’s sure to be a stunning spectacle. The evening will be abuzz with music, models in custom bridal fashions, signature mixed drinks from Firefly Vodka, Dixie Vodka, Chicken Cock Whiskey, and Mercantile and Mash, and so much more.
Circle the Cedar Room to find shopping and merry-making opportunities for both guys and gals. Grab a feathery new piece from Brackish bow ties or a luscious lipstick from ABP Makeup; play casino games with the gents of Spike by Snyder or corn hole courtesy of Matthias Kaupermann; delight over Emily Kotarski and Garnish & Frill’s handmade bridal creations; and pose for the camera in the Hed Hi Media photo bus. The festive offerings go on and on—this pop-up party is not to be missed!
Another thing you won’t want to miss? The seven-night stay at a St. Bart’s ocean-view villa that’s up for grabs for one lucky giveaway winner courtesy of Vista Blue Honeymoons. Enter this raffle at the Pop-Up Party and feel good knowing your entry will help our friends (the furry, four-legged variety) at the Charleston Animal Society.
