Five Reasons to Get Married at a Country Club – featuring Gleneagles Country Club
by Jennifer Mathis December 21
Selecting the perfect wedding venue can be overwhelming, especially when perusing all the options in the Dallas area. With everyone bombarding you with questions about the big day, it’s important to take a step back and think about what you want your wedding to look like. Whether you’re envisioning something trendy or traditional, an intimate gathering or a big bash, here are five reasons why a country club is the perfect backdrop for your big day from Gleneagles Country Club private events director, Stephanie Reed.
- One-stop-shop – Country clubs are a convenient one-stop-shop when planning a wedding. When booking a country club, brides don’t have to worry about picking out vendors, such as caterers and bar services, table linens, etc. This helps with budgeting and planning, as all the expenses will be consolidated into one set price.
- Bridal suite – Most country clubs offer a bridal suite, which is a fantastic feature to look for when touring venues. This gives brides the luxury of enjoying the day without having to worry about the hassle or expense of transporting the bridal party from the hotel to the ceremony and then to the reception. The suite also allows brides to stay on property through photos, ceremony and reception.
- Indoor or outdoor venue – Known for their versatile indoor and outdoor event spaces, country clubs can easily accommodate weddings of various sizes. Also, an outdoor wedding ceremony with no rain contingency plan will make for some grumbling guests, so choosing a venue with an indoor option will give you peace-of-mind.
- Parking – At more public venues, parking can be a real hassle for your guests. A country club provides more than enough parking for all guests to find, and to make it even easier, many also offer valet parking!
- Timeless – With expansive green spaces, manicured lawns, chandeliers and stately ballrooms with high-end finishes, the classic and timeless country club setting offers a picturesque backdrop for your big day.
