October is a great time to get married in Mississippi. We had beautiful weather and didn't have to worry about the cake (or the guests) melting. We had our reception at a family member's home and it was wonderful. No rules, time limits, or competing noise.
I recommend Macaroni Grille if you are having a large rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent and we could afford to invite both of our very large extended families. They were very accommodating.
St. Philip's Episcopal Church
They are hesitant to marry non-members and have some pretty specific rules but everyone was helpful and the ceremony was beautiful.
The hotel did not allow us to put our guest packages in the rooms before the guests arrived. I'm not even sure that they got the gifts. The group discount was not that great either.
