The Perfect Venue :: NC Wedding Planner

Last week, I spoke about planning your multicultural wedding.  One of my tips was selecting the right wedding location, so let's discuss that a bit further.   Cultural weddings will usually have a large guest count, and that number will be most important when it comes to planning and budgeting on your wedding day. Wedding invitations  set the tone for the type of wedding that a couple will have (formal, casual, etc).  With this in mind, the wedding location can also dictate the theme and style of the day.

North Carolina has some of the most beautiful wedding venues   Here are my top 5 locations that can accommodate your guest count and your cultural wedding!
