California Wedding Venues, Wedding Venues in California

Glamorous, beautiful, and filled with some of the most exciting cities in the entire world, California is a realm unto itself. It’s nearly impossible to capture all that California has to offer, from the chill beach town of San Diego to the glitz and ritz of Los Angeles. Hurtle down snow-covered slopes in Big Bear or become an overnight millionaire in San Jose. Sip delicious vino in Napa Valley or admire how the fog rolls off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

Simply put, California can be anything you want it to be. It is a land of looming mountains, sprawling deserts, magnificent redwoods, sun-soaked beaches, and pristine national parks. If you plan on tying the knot in the Golden State, you have a nearly endless list of venue choices. California is a state where dreams become reality, so it’s the perfect place to host your dream wedding.

Finding the Right Wedding Venue in California

California is a massive state-comprising over 163,696 square miles. With such a large surface area to cover, when you start your search for that perfect California wedding venue, your best first step might be to narrow down your geographic area. California is usually divided into Southern California, Central California, and Northern California.

Next, start thinking about what kind of wedding environment you want. California is one of the few states that can offer you small mountain venues, breezy beach venues, romantic countryside venues, and stylish downtown venues, all within a relatively short drive of each other.

Finally, with your newly narrowed list, let’s talk venues. No surprise, California offers almost anything you could imagine. Do you dream of an elegant hotel wedding? You have thousands to choose from throughout the state, from cozy inns in adorable towns like Julian, to posh, five-star options that cater to the stars in Los Angeles and San Francisco. California’s gorgeous year-round weather makes it a great location for park weddings, boat weddings, and rooftop weddings. Just make sure you check your budget before you set your heart on a specific venue. Everything in California is larger than life, including venue price tags.

How to Choose the Right Wedding Venue in California

Once you have your sights set on a few top California wedding venues, it’s time to schedule a venue tour. This is your chance to meet the venue coordinator and to ask all your pressing questions. First, cover the basics. Make sure the venue is available on your preferred wedding date and check on its capacity. Next, ask about wedding packages. If you already have vendors, like a photographer or caterer in mind, see if the venue will allow them. (Some venues require you to use their staff or to choose from an approved vendor list). Finally, check to make sure the bathrooms are clean and easy to find. Seriously. Your guests will thank you.

At WeddingWire, we are here to help you get hitched without a hitch. As you begin planning your California wedding, take a look a look at your wedding checklist tool and start building your wedding website.
