 20 South Carolina Bed and Breakfasts Perfect for Weddings | Palmetto State Weddings

What's the perfect solution when you want a historic wedding venue that offers accommodations for your guests with a more intimate feel than a chain hotel?

A sweet, romantic bed and breakfast, of course!

These inns and B&Bs make for a lovely place to tie the knot thanks to their excellent customer service, which means that your event will get much more individual attention than if you were renting the ballroom at your closest corporate-owned hotel. These small businesses are locally owned and operated, so the owners and managers are committed to making your day perfect. 

Best of all, your guests can stay onsite for an all-in-one wedding weekend. You won't have to worry about your Aunt Hilda getting lost on the way to the ceremony since the ceremony will take place just steps from her room.

Here are 20 gorgeous South Carolina bed and breakfasts that are waiting for you and your wedding! (We've listed them in no particular order since we love all of them and try not to play favorites.)
