Set the scene!
Congratulations on your engagement! Now it is time to plan one of the most memorable days of your life, but where do you start?! For many brides the to-do list can be overwhelming. Your wedding is a play you are able to direct; choosing your venue sets the stage for everything to beautifully unfold. Once you pick your place, let your venue point you in the right direction for next steps.
A few things to consider when setting the scene for your day!
Would you prefer your ceremony and reception on the same property? Many venues offer gorgeous ceremony and reception environments allowing easy transition through an eye-catching event. St. John’s features two locations both overlooking our landscaped golf course and serene lake. While out on the lawn is our most popular location, the covered patio Is a beautiful option and poor weather backup.
What is the kitchen cooking? Looking for simple hors d’oeuvres for an afternoon wedding, or would you like an elegant sit-down dinner with your guests? Customer reviews can be your best way to narrow down your options based on quality of food. Stop by The Knot or Wedding Wire to see what people are saying about your venue options.
Set the scene! Really, what look are you going for? Are beach waves in the background a requirement? How about St. John’s peaceful lake surrounded by Florida’s natural wooded beauty? Look for a venue that you can come in and truly add your touch to make it match your vision. Customization can be key when you are designing your ideal day.
After choosing your venue, you’ll know everything they provide and what you will need to bring in. In addition, many places have preferred vendor lists to point you towards the best service possible. Planning your day should be fun and hassle free, choose a venue that will ensure these qualities!
