Cheerful Southern Charm- A Coastal Charleston Wedding


Alyson and Scott’s wedding at The Island House, a magnificent waterfront estate in Charleston, South Carolina, was a delightfully charming affair filled with joyful details so meaningful to the love they share. Alyson and Scott, together with their Dream Team vendors, magnificently made their dream wedding vision come to life. The décor was flawless, fun, and executed exceptionally well. Bravo, Friends!

At VGS, we dream of a world where wedding planning is a truly blissful season overflowing with joy. We hear time and time again from so many brides that turning wedding inspiration into your own beautiful celebration is one of the most overwhelming chapters of wedding planning. It can be very easy to become engulfed by the latest trends and left puzzled and perplexed at knowing how to design your wedding day. We are inspired by Alyson and Scott’s lovely wedding to share our advice on managing your wedding inspiration and turning you vision into creation. See the first VGS Well-Planned Guide where we share Five Tips for Creating Your Wedding Vision!

Anyone who has gathered for an occasion with VGS Founder, Lauren, knows that she loves incorporating party props to all celebrations. Party props are an excellent way to enhance the jolly atmosphere of any party, especially wedding receptions. VGS encourages incorporating fun props that tie into the setting of your wedding reception. If you are having a ballroom reception at an art gallery, neatly arrange sparkle covered top hats for your guests to enjoy. If you are hosting a coastal reception, incorporate seaside themed props, just as Alyson and Scott did. Party props are a sure way to please your guests, and make for a fabulously fun celebration. 


Cheers to a fine marriage!
