Charlotte Wedding Guide


Charlotte Wedding

Charlotte is the perfect location for an enchanting wedding.  From charming Southern venues with a romantic country setting to sophisticated and elegant affairs in the heart of uptown, the area offers the finest venues for both indoor and outdoor weddings along with award-winning wedding professionals to make your special day an occasion that will be remembered.


Charlotte Wedding Planning: Climate Control

If you’re dreaming of an outdoor wedding in Charlotte, late March through early November are the best times to plan your event.  July and August are typically the hottest months of the year, with temperatures averaging near 100 degrees.  Spring months generally offer gorgeous weather but rainfall is quite common during the season- so make alternate arrangements to be safe. 


Charlotte Wedding Planning: Eco-Friendly Options

Charlotte has a lot to offer eco-chic brides, including locally designed organic bridal gowns and eco-friendly wedding caterers.  The elegant Ritz-Carlton is Charlotte’s first new hotel to be a LEED certified facility and is the ideal venue for a sophisticated, eco-friendly wedding. 

The Something Green wedding at the Ritz is an all-inclusive package that includes local and organic catering for up to 480 guests, event planning, decor and floral arrangements, and a traditional organic wedding cake.  A 4-hour open bar offers a tremendous selection of organic wines and liqueurs, exquisite linens made of recycled plastic to top the tables, and locally grown floral arrangements that adorn the facility.  Unused food is donated to the local food bank and plants are either composted or donated to area hospitals.  Pricing is $189 per person.


Tips for a Memorable Charlotte Wedding

If you’re expecting out-of-town wedding guests, there are plenty of hotels in every price range.  Recommend accommodations that are near your wedding venue to prevent stressful driving situations – as you know, Charlotte roads can be confusing, especially near the uptown area!  Many Charlotte wedding vendors are highly sought after so plan early and secure your venues, florist, and cake designer several months in advance.
