Invite Your Guests In To These Chic Outdoor Suites

Between swaying palmetto fronds, warm coastal breezes and sunsets over the riverfront, late summer evenings in the Lowcountry were made for outdoor entertaining – and in Charleston, we know how to do it in style. Have an eye for interior design? Today’s post is for you, because our new favorite wedding trend is the outdoor suite!

These chic spaces pull double-duty as a way to personalize an incredible backdrop for additional seating where your guests feel right at home. Consider it an extension of your own living room! Pair statement pieces like mid-century modern sofas or romantic vintage setees with custom design elements, from oriental rugs and warm textiles to elaborate chandeliers, patterned accent chairs, bookshelves and ottomans.

We love how these couples dressed up their wedding celebrations at Lowndes Grove and The William Aiken House with these rooms-with-a-view (Note:  If you’re anything like us, you’re already taking a mental survey of your front porch for that bedswing). Treat your guests to genuine Southern hospitality by inviting them in to one of these gorgeous outdoor retreats!
