To celebrate a marriage in a nature preserve shows an epitome of class and romance. If you’re stressed about the preparations for your wedding, the peaceful setting will be a pleasant reprieve. This article explores the advantages of holding a botanical garden wedding.

The Benefits of Throwing a Wedding at a Botanical GardenBotanical garden venues are gaining popularity among brides and grooms because of the large outside areas perfect for wedding ceremonies and celebrations.

When you have your garden-theme wedding, you guarantee it will be one of your life’s most beautiful and unique days. More advantages of holding a botanical wedding include:

Embedded FurnishingsAttractive fountains, arches, statues, and other works of art are frequently seen in botanical gardens. Having your wedding at such a venue is a great way to show off its splendor without worrying about details.

Beautiful SceneryBotanical gardens provide the perfect setting for a wedding surrounded by nature. The lush gardens are not only a sight to behold but also a photographer’s dream.

Assistance in Organizing Your WeddingBecause of the high demand, some botanical gardens now provide full-service wedding coordination, including catering and floral design. The people who offer these services likely worked in a nature preserve before, giving you peace of mind as you plan your garden theme wedding.

There is Enough Room for Outdoor ActivitiesMany botanical gardens can handle both small, quiet ceremonies and enormous, colorful parties. Some gardens even have outdoor stages where you may have a band and guests can dance the night away. Our Grand Allee can host up to 600 guests, while our Circular Lawn can accommodate up to 200 guests.

Excellent Interior DesignMany botanical gardens have lovely atria and greenhouses that shelter from the elements. At Texas Discovery Gardens, our Grand Hall offers gorgeous views of the garden, and the Butterfly House brings a whole new experience to your wedding.

Things to Consider When Planning a Botanical Garden WeddingWhen planning a garden theme wedding, there are a few things to remember to make sure your big day is everything you’ve dreamed of. They include:

Prevailing ClimateInvitations to garden theme weddings are most appropriate for the warm months of spring and summer. If you’re planning an outdoor ceremony, you know how important it is to keep the weather dry. Make sure you have another option if the weather doesn’t go as planned for your botanical wedding.

Surrounding TemperatureHeat plays a significant role, as well. Ensure visitors have access to air conditioning and enough shade in hot weather. You don’t want your guests to be overheated and uncomfortable at your wedding.

Set RegulationsBecause their primary purpose is plant conservation, botanical gardens have restrictions that visitors must follow. They may include: 

Liquor RulesSome botanical gardens accept the sale of alcoholic beverages, while others do not. Our garden-only events prohibit food and beverages.

Limitations on DecorationThere are usually rules about what kinds of decorations you can have in a botanical garden. You should inquire about the garden requirements and ensure it works for you. Our event rental agreements include 250 chairs, an on-site venue manager, a table with linen for guest sign-in, and security.
