Beautiful Garden Wedding Venues
There's a lot that goes into choosing a wedding venue, but space and scenery tend to be the two primary factors that couples weigh most heavily. Since gardens generally offer both, they're a popular big-day venue choice. With their own natural décor and unique landscapes, they make it easy to design a ceremony and reception on their grounds. That's why we found some of the country's best garden wedding venues, which vary in style but are all undeniably beautiful.
No matter where you plan to wed—north or south, east or west—we've got you covered with our list of wedding-worthy gardens in the United States. While you may associate garden celebrations with springtime, these venues aren't limited to one season. Thanks to their versatile facilities, most are available throughout the year. If that's not exciting enough, many also come with planners, caterers, and more to help your event go off without a hitch. The important thing to note is that these garden venues aren't all the same layout-wise. Some differ in size and the types of plants that are growing there, while others double as sculpture parks, vineyards, resorts, or historic landmarks. There are places set inland, and some on the water, and their vibes range from elegant, to tropical, to romantic, to rustic.
Set your wedding at one of the garden ceremony and reception spaces ahead and you're basically guaranteed a stunning party full of flowers, greenery, and love. Once you're there, be sure to stop and smell the roses—beauty like this deserves to be appreciated, and you'll deserve the downtime after organizing your nuptial affair.
