Space, scenery, and affordability are three of the biggest factors that come into play when deciding on the perfect wedding location. And, if there is one thing we have learned, it is that outdoor garden wedding venues have all three!
Not only do they offer space and scenery, but very little is required to make a garden wedding look beautiful. From the natural beauty of nature to the unique landscapes of each location, having a perfect wedding ceremony is easy when garden venues do the majority of the work for you.
In addition to spectacular looks and incredible spacing, a garden wedding can be quite reasonably priced – depending on which garden fairytale you choose. Most garden wedding venues can range from $5,000 upwards with inclusive amenities, while the average cost for a wedding venue in the U.S is upwards of $10,000!
