Milledgeville is the perfect backdrop for a picturesque Southern wedding. From our iconic trolley to our spectacular locations, there’s so much you can add to your day to make it uniquely Milledgeville. Here are 6 ways to help Milledgeville leave its mark on your wedding day. 

1. Ride in style

Arrive to your big day in style by taking “Milly” the Trolley! Milledgeville’s iconic red trolley is available for rental to cruise your bridal party around from ceremony to reception. Capable of holding 24 guests, “Milly” is a great way to keep your bridal party together to enjoy each special moment.

2. Get Goodies from Ryal’s Bakery

For over 50 years, Ryal’s Bakery has been a Milledgeville staple. It’s absolutely necessary to have goodies from there on your wedding day if you want it to be uniquely Milledgeville! Now, they might be famous for their smiley face cookies, but that’s definitely not all they have. Get cheese straws. Get cake squares. Get a little bit of everything! These treats won’t disappoint.

3. Choose the Perfect Historic Venue 

Famous for our Antebellum heritage, a large part of Milledgeville’s draw is that it’s such a historic destination. Getting married in one of our iconic destinations is a timeless must for a uniquely Milledgeville wedding. Tie the knot in a historic chapel, on the front porch of a Greek Revival mansion or in a rustic barn. For ideas on our top rated wedding venues, click here.

5. Stay at The Antebellum Inn

Built in 1890, the Antebellum Inn has been the perfect place to experience Southern hospitality and elegance for years. Mimosa’s on the porch, anyone?
