Win a Lowcountry Wedding!

March 30, 2016 | By | Comments (7)

We’re so excited today to bring you an unbelievable giveaway from one of our favorite coastal authors, Mary Alice Monroe. The New York Times bestseller’s latest book A Lowcountry Wedding (out May 3) takes place in her own longtime home of Charleston, South Carolina, and she’s dreamed up a way to really bring the book to life for one lucky reader: An all-expenses paid wedding in the very city where the book takes place! (And we should note: You can enter on a friend or relative’s behalf!)

Love Charleston weddings? Get more inspiration from this super-stylish affair by the waterfront.

The event will take place at the historic Legare Waring House, which has the ultimate Lowcountry feel with moss-draped oaks for gorgeous photo opps like this one:

Find out how to travel like a Charleston insider.

Monroe teamed up with ultra-popular local wedding vendors to plan the entire giveaway, which means the lucky winning couple won’t have to worry about planning a thing! That means beautiful florals from Wildflowers, Inc, like these:

And even catering from local favorite Cru Catering, whose fried oysters will have guests talking for weeks.

Of course, there’s so much more, like a wedding night stay at John Rutledge House Inn, bridal party hair and makeup from SalonSalon of Charleston, photography from Riverland Studios, wedding cupcakes from Sweet Lulu’s Bakery on Wheels…this thoughtful author has covered just about any wedding category that comes to mind, and all from amazing local vendors!

Are you in it to win it? Head over to for the full details on how to enter, which include making a short video. The deadline is May 31, 2016. Best of luck! (And if you win…can we snag an invite?)
