Planning a wedding can be overwhelming with so much advice out there.

You have plenty of options, including plantation wedding venues like Boone Hall, Cypress Gardens, Inn at Middleton Place, Magnolia Plantation, McLeod Plantation, Middleton Place, Old Wide Awake Plantation, Pepper Plantation, Wingate Plantation, and Lowndes Grove Plantation.
