For the first time, CWW will be a separate stand-alone event from Charleston Fashion Week®

We are overjoyed with the continued growth of Charleston’s wedding market and with the parallel growth of our weddings brand, and a natural extension of this growth is Charleston Wedding Week

Charleston Weddings magazine, one of the nation’s premier regional wedding publications, announces that its annual Charleston Wedding Week (CWW) will be held in January 2017 with Diamonds Direct as its 2017 Title Sponsor. Diamonds Direct is also the premier wedding and fine jewelry retailer regionally, with eight locations across the American south, including Charleston.

“We are overjoyed with the continued growth of Charleston’s wedding market and with the parallel growth of our weddings brand, and a natural extension of this growth is Charleston Wedding Week, which is now a separate event from Charleston Fashion Week®,” said Melissa Bigner, editorial director of Charleston Weddings magazine. “We are also excited to have Diamonds Direct as the Title Sponsor for Charleston Wedding Week 2017 as Diamonds Direct is a perfect fit for CWW. Over the coming month, we will be announcing the full calendar for CWW 2017, including many direct tie-ins with Diamonds Direct.”
