Tips for Choosing Wedding Venues in Fresno

Now that you’re engaged, you have a wedding to plan! This is an exciting time, and yet it can also be stressful. Not to worry, with all that you have on your plate, we are pleased to provide you with a few tips to help you choose the perfect wedding venue in Fresno to celebrate this momentous time in your life. Fresno is a great city, and with its gorgeous landscape and scenic backgrounds, you can rest assured that whichever venue you choose, your wedding day and pictures will be absolutely beautiful. Here are a few things to keep in mind when searching for a venue.

 

The Size of Your Wedding 

The Knot 2019 Real Wedding Study reported that couples had an average guest count of 131. Your guest count may be more or less depending on your situation. Whatever your number is, do ensure that the venue you choose is able to accommodate this number. The Moravia Wines is a popular and beautiful vineyard that is perfect both for large and small weddings. This venue’s cost ranges from $4700 – $8700, with the cost being greatly influenced by your guest count and the time of year. They also have another package, which begins at $1700 but requires a minimum purchase of wine, which again will be affected by your guest count.

 

The Type of Style of Your Wedding 

What style of wedding have you been dreaming of? Is it formal or casual, garden-style, traditional or modern? Answering these questions will help to steer you in the right direction. If you’re thinking of laid back and rustic, a barn wedding with its amazing scenery and relaxed, a natural setting would be perfect. The Springville Ranch is one such venue offering couples many picturesque options for their big day. You can choose to go in the barn or be by the lake, or the pond, whatever you choose the natural and relaxed environment is sure to give you a memorable day and beautiful photos.

 

The Weather

The weather will be greatly influenced by the time of year that you choose to host your nuptials. Thankfully Fresno has more than 260 days of nice sunny weather, making it perfect all year round. Most weddings occur between the months of April to October, with October being the favorite. This is likely due to the cool temperatures experienced during the fall, which makes outdoor weddings very desirable. Summer is next in popularity with hot sunny temperatures in the high 80s. If you have yet to decide when you’re tying the knot or are uncertain if you want your wedding indoors or outdoors, you could go with a venue that offers both options.  Paradise Springs is a gorgeous venue that offers couples both the option of a wedding outdoors with many areas to choose from or a nice and elegant time in one of their ballrooms. They have many different packages starting from $5,100 – $15,000 to suit you.

 

The Cost 

California weddings tend to be very expensive. Thankfully Fresno is fairly affordable, with the average cost of weddings in 2019 based on Wedding Report Inc being 24,264. The venue’s cost covers a significant portion of your wedding’s overall cost and will be influenced by your guest count and the time of year. The peak season, which is between April and October, and weekends attract the highest venue cost. Nevertheless, with much planning and research, very affordable options can be found, such as the Shinzen Japanese Garden, where you can host a beautiful wedding ceremony starting at approximately $200 USD per hour.

 

Your Out-of-Town Guests

Fresno hotels make it easy to book hotel block reservations for multiple rooms for your out-of-town guests. The average cost of rooms will be between $110-$112 per night, for budget accommodations. If you are having out of town guests, you may want to book hotels close to the venue, or you can even choose to have your wedding at the resort or hotel and enjoy the time with your guest. The Radisson Hotel Fresno Conference Center is a great option, especially when have an elegantly styled wedding with prices starting from $3700 for a guest list of 50 persons. For affordable accommodation options in Fresno visit Tripadvisor.

 

With the many options available Fresno has available, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. However, bearing the above tips in mind should help.
