Whether you are a NC local looking for a nearby wedding destination, or have found this website by searching for Southern destination wedding ideas, we are so glad you've found us. Southern Bride & Groom is the leading upscale wedding magazine for the Triangle Area of North Carolina. For 31 years, we have offered engaged couples an annual list of hand-picked NC wedding vendors and venues who exemplify quality and reliability. We hope you will agree that NC is a most wonderful location for an affordable Southern destination wedding. Most of the services featured on this page are NC beach wedding destinations venues, and vendors serving those areas. If to you, the middle of the state of NC would be a destination, take a look at our "Wedding Venues" page for the most extensive list of the best wedding venues in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill areas.

Area bed & breakfast inns, mansions and coastal resorts make unique wedding and reception sites. You, your friends and your family can all enjoy the ambiance of a getaway and the convenience of easy travel. Plan an entire NC beach wedding on Bald Head Island or the Outer Banks, or even in the town of Wilmington! Plan a gorgeous wedding in the NC Mountains, in Asheville, Boone or Blowing Rock. Or consider a destination wedding in an NC town such as New Bern, Greensboro, Winston-Salem or Charlotte. There are so many possibilities in the gorgeous state of North Carolina, and its surrounding Southern states.

Please take note that our recommended travel agent is happy to help you plan an international or tropical destination wedding if that's more your style. Consulting with a NC travel agent will be much easier than flying to your destination to plan!
