We’re busy bees here at Charleston Weddings office, wrapping things up for the upcoming winter issue. But, we’re never too busy to share the buzz about the happenings around town—so listen up!

It’s tax-free weekend. So, what does that mean for all you brides?  Deals and steals, of course! From Friday August 6th at 12:01am to Sunday, August 8th, at midnight, the 6 percent state sales tax is waived on applicable items (clothing, accessories, and footwear included). Perfect for all you gals out there who still haven’t found your dream gown.
