Weddings in Sacramento
Not many events get as much attention and deserve to be as meticulously planned as your wedding day. Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience. Therefore, everything must go smoothly on your big day. One of the best ways to ensure that you get the wedding of your dreams is by choosing the perfect wedding venue.
Sacramento is one of California’s well-known cities, offering everything from waterfront ceremonies to barn and garden ballroom weddings. You will not have any trouble finding a wedding location that suits your specific style.
Famous Sacramento Wedding Venues
Although this city has many wedding venues to choose from, there are always those that are a cut above the rest. One of the most sought-after wedding venues is the Delta King Hotel. This riverboat hotel boasts stunning waterfront views and beautiful interior spaces that can accommodate small and large weddings. If you are more of the romantic vineyard type, you can go for the Scribner Bend Vineyard. Located alongside the Sacramento River and offering a lovely backdrop of vines, this picturesque property features a 1918 era barn and perfectly trimmed grounds. This is the ideal location for an outdoor ceremony and reception.
Another prominent location in the city of Sacramento is the Sacramento Zoo. Although most people visit to see the animals, many couples have tied the knot at the zoo as well. If you love animals, this is the perfect place for you to get married. There is nothing more exciting and fulfilling to an animal lover than getting married at a venue that has an amazing backdrop of different wild animals and exotic plants.
Common Sacramento Weddings and Prices
Because of the beautiful weather that is experienced in Sacramento all year round, couples are spoilt for choice. Whether you want a waterfront, barn, hotel, or vineyard ceremony, you will still have an unforgettable wedding. Most venues in Sacramento allow couples to customize their wedding, making wedding planning even more satisfying. On average, a wedding in Sacramento will cost between $30,000 and $36,000. If you have a limited budget, you can still have the wedding of your dreams because there are cheaper venues available.
Weather and the Ideal Time of the Year to Get Married in Sacramento
The good thing about living in Sacramento is that the city has beautiful weather all year round. As such, couples are at liberty to pick the season that they prefer to tie the knot. The city boasts of a Mediterranean climate comprised of mild winters, warm and dry summers, as well as minimal rain in coastal areas. However, more couples generally get married either in summer or in fall. So, based on what has worked for other couples, it would be best to have your wedding in summer or in autumn.
Guests Accommodation Options in Sacramento
This city has one major airport, Sacramento International Airport. If you have guests that are coming from other states or cities, they will have plenty of accommodation to choose from. Although a wedding is mainly about the couple getting married, it is also very important to prioritize all your guests’ comfort and enjoyment. Depending on the number of guests, you can choose a venue that will cater to the guests’ accommodation. If that is not an option for you, there is a wide variety of hotels, lodges, inns, and bed and breakfasts located near most wedding venues that they can choose from. Transport is also not an issue as taxis, Uber, and other forms of transportation are readily available.
Sacramento has a variety of amazing wedding venues available for couples about to tie the knot. If you want to get married in summer or autumn, make sure that you book a wedding venue on time so you will not have to pick an alternative and less desirable location.
Sacramento wedding venues typically cost somewhere in the area of $32,400, all told – this includes the cost of the wedding ceremony and reception as well as all of the associated costs of a party. Wedding venues in Sacramento can cost an average of $9,570; though this is a particularly expensive average cost for a wedding venue in this country, it is definitely possible to find cheaper options for a lower budget, as venues of all kidneys can be easily found across the urban area.
Wedding venues in and around Sacramento are as numerous as they are diverse, with options including boutique hotels, ballrooms and banquet halls, countryside barns, wineries, museums, farms, and other such event spaces. There is no shortage of elegance when it comes to the wedding venues in Sacramento, and for every budget there is an available venue that can meet all of the needs of the happy couple. With enough research and dedication, we guarantee that the perfect Sacramento-based wedding venue is within reach.
It is highly recommended that outdoor wedding celebrations taking place in Sacramento avoid the seasons of May, June, July, and August – though these are peak wedding season months, it is likely that the heat will preclude an outdoor component to a wedding celebration. We always recommend that a backup indoor venue be selected in case of inclement weather, in this case meaning a particularly scorching weekend. The fall season in Sacramento is particularly lovely, while the late winter and early spring can get fairly consistent showers, making it a risky call for an outdoor party.
