Washington, D.C. couple Tamika and Juan traveled to Charleston to say, "I Do" at the historic Legare Waring House.

So now that you know what to do, see and eat in Charleston, here is a handy-dandy cheat sheet of trusted vendors to help you plan your wedding in the charming southern city. All of these folks should be used to working with out-of-town couples who might not reside anywhere near Charleston. A huge and sincere thank-you to Dr. Valerie Frazier-Gresham of the Charleston Multicultural Bridal and Events Association for assisting with this list.
