The garden is a common, beautiful setting for both a wedding ceremony and for the reception. When carefully cultivated, this can be one of the most beautiful locations for your guests to mingle and enjoy themselves. There are private companies that offer wedding venue services and there are other options available, each with their own advantages.
A Professional Private Garden Affair
A garden wedding can be held at any time of the year. A spring garden may be very cool and the blooming flowers can create a very beautiful setting. However, the garden may affect guests who suffer from seasonal allergies. A summer garden may be too hot. As for fall and winter, the colorful spring flowers will not be available. However, you will be able to create a beautiful winter garden reception with evergreen plants.
Garden receptions can be appropriate for any type of wedding. More formal garden weddings may be held nearby trimmed hedges, with guests expected to dress dressy and casual. Meanwhile, a less formal garden reception may feel more like a backyard party with a BBQ.
Public Garden Receptions
One way to save money is to have your garden reception in a public location. It is easy to visit several public locations to decide which one has the right look. However, with a public wedding venue, you will not be free from the prying eyes of passersby. One solution is to visit the public park frequently to note when it is most likely that the park will be busy and schedule the reception during a slower time.
A Reception At Your Home
If you already have a garden, one option is to hold your reception at your own home. This option might be feasible if you own a lot of property, but is not a good idea otherwise. And even if you do own a lot of property, you may not want the messy aftermath of a very successful wedding reception.
Using your own small garden may save you money, but there are more downsides than upsides to this decision. A backyard garden may not have the amenities to comfortably hold a garden reception, such as having enough bathroom facilities. Also, if you have a large number of guests, you may not have enough room in your backyard garden. Your home will probably not have room for the cars, tables, waiters and food stations without the location being very cramped. But depending on the situation, this may be an option.
