Savannah Beach wedding Advice! Tybee wedding
The Beach! I just love Tybee Island.It is secluded and off the beaten path. untouched and beautiful I was married on Savannah's Beach at Tybee Island. My Tybee beach wedding on the sand was gorgeous and all thanks to my wedding planner! A Tybee island local, she knows savannah and the island well.Our beachside ceremony was barefoot and my dad walked me down a flower petal aisle!Our cake was amazing and the cocktails didn't hurt. People like happy hour here
We had fifty guests and a tent on the sand. we chose an authentic Luau reception with a whole roasted pig! coconut candles and shell and orchid leis were my favors.
we pledged our vows as the sun set.Perfect!!!!
I will return every anniversary to Tybee!
We had our rehearsal dinner at George's restaurant and our Sunday brunch at A.J.s- both are wonderful!!!!
If you are getting married, call Anastasia !!
A Bit Of Gory History
Stop by the Lucas Theater at 32 Abercorn and see if you can find the bullet holes from a supposed drive-by shooting in prohibition times in which several people (I think 11) were killed. The bullet holes are still there, just touched up a bit to make them less noticeable.
Of course, I'm gonna have to recommend comfortable walking shoes. There is no such thing as driving around Savannah and getting even the slightest idea for what an awesome place you're in -- put the car somewhere, and walk everywhere you can. As far as the weather goes, though, Savannah does get pretty sultry in the summer months, and with all the walking you're going to be doing, I would recommend bringing a water bottle and keeping yourself hydrated through the middle of the day, but be aware that opportunities to use a bathroom in the Historic District are not abundant. Keep in mind when you're packing that Savannah, though it is a modern, cosmopolitan city, is situated smack dab in the middle of the vast festering swamps of the southeast, and as a result you will encounter native insect life in the form of mosquitoes large enough to be classified as aircraft by the FAA. (Just a little mosquito humor there . . . yeah) So you might want to have some bug repellant with you, especially if you're planning on striking out for Skidaway Island or any similar outdoorsy sort of attraction. Bring your own. The tourist shops near the riverfront generally charge a lot for film, batteries, and so forth. If you're headed to Tybee Island, the beach is terrific, so enjoy, but don't plan on doing any surfing there -- it's restricted on most of the beach, and the surf is pretty weak anyhow. So tanning lotion, yes, but surfboard, don't bother. Bring nice pens and writing paper, and write to your friends and family back home while you're sitting on a square bench or by the riverfront or something Savannah-esque like that. Savannah somehow inspires this method of communication with its slow-paced demeanor, and it's an inspiration that I highly recommend acting upon.
i'M SURE THERE ARE A LOT OF...
i'M SURE THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS i MISSED DURING MY SHORT STOP IN THE sAVANNAH AREA, BUT ONE POINT OF INTEREST TO MY FAMILY(ESPECIALLY HISTORY LOVING MOM AND DAD) WAS TYBEE ISLAND, ABOUT 30 MINUTES OR SO EAST OF SAVANNAH.GREAT LIGHTHOUSE THERE AND VERY INTERESTING FORT PULASKI WHERE YOU CAN STILL SEE THE (FIRST USED) RIFLED CANNON SHELLS STUCK IN THE CRUMBLED FORT WALLS. THE RIFLED CANNON CHANGED THE FACE OF CANNON WARFARE DURING THE CIVIL WAR, AND THE TOUR OF THE FORT IS SHORT, BUT INTERESTING. TRAFFIC CAN GET VERY HEAVY DUE TO THE SEASHORE VISITORS, SO AVOID WEEKEND VISITS DURING THE SUMMER.
If driving to Savannah, you...
If driving to Savannah, you would probably use I-95 or I-16. 95 runs north and south. 16 comes from Atlanta by way of 75S, gettin on 16 at Macon. We have an international airport, with daily flights fom anywhere. We are also served by Amtrak and Greyhound bus, if you desire.
You will need a car if you want to go to the beach, the civil war forts, or to Savannah Wildlife, just across the river in SC. You can see alligators in their natural state. BE CAREFUL!
