    I hear Charleston is beautiful! But I also heard their are roaches and palmetto bugs everywhere! My MOH's friend lives in Summerville and she said I would flip out in Charleston because of the "palmies" (this is what we call the huge bugs) but it looks so beautiful, I really want to visit!

    Sincerely,
    Joanna... the palmie-phobic!

I had no idea they were so strict there!

        Charleston Grill is really nice, and really good! Expensive, but it's your wedding :). Good location too... you should also check out Peninsula Grill, it is VERY popular both with Charlestonians and out of towners: http://www.peninsulagrill.com/

        I am not sure about the awning... have you found a florist? They might be able to help? Our favorite florist is Tiger Lily, I don't know many others: http://www.tigerlilyweddings.com/
        Thank you so much for all of your help. I think I have officially crossed off the IOP beach, way too strict. I haven't looked into a florist yet, but I'm going to check Tiger Lily out. The Peninsula grill looks nice, that is definitely an option. Thanks again!

            I lived there for four years and rarely saw a roach or palmetto bug (unless I was somewhere gross) so no worries.

            I second Peninsula Grill - yum.

              So glad I found this thread! I am getting married on Sullivan's Island in July of next year. So far I can't find much info on the photography thing, I know it says no COMMERCIAL photogs but I would assume if a relative was doing it (for free ) that it'd be ok.

              So you have any suggestions for hotels in that area? are you familiar with Sullivan's Island?
