Southern Weddings

Author: Kristin

House parties, burying the bourbon and cake pulls, oh my! Meet the newest addition to the Southern Weddings Shop: All About Southern Wedding Traditions. The whole office is awfully proud of our new e-book library. Why? Because we are big believers in pretty AND practical and our new e-books are the best of both worlds!

There’s something magical about Southern culture that seems to be magnified when digging into the wedding planning process. Outdoor weddings and receptions are common place and keeping away the rain is paramount: enter burying the bourbon. Whether you were born and raised in the South, moved here as fast as you could, or are simply looking to add a dose of Southern charm to your wedding day, our guide to Southern wedding traditions has you covered!

In this 19-page digital download, we walk you through the six most beloved Southern wedding traditions and offer up ways to personalize six classic wedding traditions. We’ll tell you when, where, why, and how to include each in your celebration!

We believe that your wedding day should be a reflection of your very personal love story. We also believe in the power of weaving sweet details (the more Southern the better) into your big day. Educate yourself and figure out which of our favorite traditions will work for you: All About Southern Wedding Traditions e-book!

P.S. Curious about the overlap of our e-book library and the Joyful Wedding Planner? Our e-books can be used alongside our planner (since we go into more detail on each topic than we were able to in the planner) or in tandem with another planner. We’ve heard from so many brides who were sad to have purchased another planner before finding ours, so this is a way that all of y’all can still get our perspective on individual topics without purchasing a second planner! Our e-books also make a great surcee for the brides in your life!

While SEC football gets a lot of attention when it comes to wedding planning, the SW office is located in the heart of ACC Basketball country. So it’s pretty easy to see how March Madness takes over the office around this time every year, especially with an office full of Tar Heel Alums! While might not all agree on which basketball team to cheer for (ahem, Emily Thomas), we all agree that this time of year should be celebrated in high style: welcome to Mason-Dixon Madness 2017—a Southern food tournament!

This year, our tournament begins with 64 of the best and brightest Southern food favorites, divided by course so that fried chicken doesn’t go head-to-head with mac and cheese in the first round. Each week, y’all will get the chance to weigh in on your favorite Southern delicacies until we whittle things down to the championship match-up on April 3rd!

Will there be some upsets in the first round? Will Cheerwine be take home the crown again or will my beloved sweet tea reign victorious? Need to brush up your Southern delicacies? Check out our past Southern Delicacy columns or call your mama. Educate yourself on Goo Goo Clusters and chow chow. First round voting will be open until March 12 when we’ll set the winners up for the round of 32!

Invite your beau and your best gals to join you and help us decide what will ultimately be named the best bite or beverage in Dixie! Take a break from wedding planning and spend some quality time with your favorite people debating the finer points of pecan pie and banana pudding (my darling KPW considers himself an expert on both). Good chance you might learn a thing or two about your friends and family in the process.

Vote in the first round of 64 below!

Feel free to print your own bracket (download it here), fill in your favorites and see if you can pick our 2017 champion. I will be rooting hard for sweet tea and mac and cheese ;) May the best food (or drink) win!

Each spring the whole Southern Weddings team gathers together in Chapel Hill for our annual retreat. We make plans for the year, sprinkling in some fun team building and spend an awful lot of time talking about each one of you. We talk about what you like and don’t like, how we can best serve you, and how we can get the best information in your hands.

We consider y’all friends and getting your personal and real-time feedback through our annual reader survey helps us make sure we’re on the right track and spending our days creating content that will best help you with wedding and marriage planning (something we take very seriously around here).

As a thank you for your time, we’re offering a shop discount code to everyone who completes it, plus if you leave your email you’ll be entered to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card or a shop-a-pooloza prize pack (one of EVERY SINGLE item currently in the Southern Weddings Shop!!) The choice is yours!

The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete, and we have two versions:

CLICK HERE to take the survey if you are a bride or groom currently planning a wedding.
CLICK HERE to take the survey if you are a wedding professional, a family member or friend, a married lady, or just someone who loves weddings!

To be entered to win our giveaway, complete the survey by March 15, 2017.

Thank y’all SO much in advance!! We are grateful for you and want to do everything we can to make Southern Weddings even better!
