The following are 10 cheap Savannah Wedding Venues in Georgia. Whether you’re looking for informal weddings near the beach or a historical backdrop or country farm, affordable wedding venues abound.
Savannah is one of my favorite Southern cities to visit. When I lived in Orlando, it was a short 4-hour drive. I love the beaches, the historical character, the artistic and modern charm, the food, foliage and walkability! A friend of mine got engaged in Savannah, and there are few other places that ooze such romantic charm.
Savannah is a perfect choice for a wedding, and thankfully, there are several affordable options, including their famous public parks & squares. Below is a summary of what our research has found to be the best “cheap” options, that is, the places where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.
