Welcome family and friends to your wedding weekend with a backyard oyster roast to give them the taste of a great Lowcountry tradition, says Candice Hilse of YOJ Events and Breeze. Decorate the party with shell décor, she adds, and you’ve polished off the look in rustic Charleston style. The pièce de résistance? Gift guests their own shuckers (many can be personalized) and let the good times shuck on. Click through the gallery above for some of our favorites.
