Great Places To Say I Do In Sacramento

By: Kris Koonar

To say I do is not difficult, but to decide where you would like to get married or party after the ceremony needs to be planned well in advance. If you are planning to get married in Sacramento then you need not worry at all because this city is rife with places where you can say, I do and tie the knot. There are many local venues to choose from, whether you want an elegant or eclectic, intense or intimate wedding.

Various new places have come up at the bucolic foothills of Placer, Amador counties and El Dorado; from wineries and lavender farms to country clubs. It is not very expensive to build a wedding facility here. When you come to the flatlands there are various reasons for celebrating because new reception and ceremony locations are now being made available and the established ones are updating themselves. In case you get confused about the venue, you can always take the help of a wedding consultant, with your guest list and budget in hand.

The guest list should not be about the number of invitations that you have mailed out, but a realistic estimate of how many people will be attending the ceremony. In the planning stage, it is very important to have a budget in mind because approximately $2000 is the rent for most of the venues. Once the wedding planner gets the feel of the wedding from your point of view, he or she can narrow down the list of the good places where you can get married. You need to go and see the places yourself because written descriptions never do justice.

People have given up on destination weddings and now the preferences are weekend nuptials and getaway weddings, moving closer to home from the bed-and-breakfast inns and wineries spread at the foothills. There are a number of rustic-chic barns in Yolo and Placer counties to explore too. Shenandoah is Amador Countys grape growing region and according to the area wedding professionals, this place is very good to get married. It is being considered as the new destination for weddings and efforts are being made to expand on that. This place can be expensive, but cheaper as compared to Hawaii or other wedding destinations. The Greater Sacramento region has a rustic charm that will surely enthrall you.

Another good place can be the Bear Flag Farm in Winters. With acres of sunflowers and lavender, this place has recently entered the wedding market. Caterers can incorporate the heirloom tomatoes of the organic farm here, along with Zucchini and other produce in the menu. Guests can also take a walk through the olive orchards and vineyard, as they will segue from cocktails to the reception. Other nice wedding places are:

. Scribner Bend Winery and Wilson Vineyards, the Old Sugar Mill.

. Kirtlan Silver Bend in Clarksburg, the venerable Delta pumpkin patch.

. The Beda Place in Meadow Vista.

. The Flower Farm, a Loomis bed-and-breakfast inn with a nursery garden and wedding space.

. Crawfords Barn.

. The Sterling Hotel and Vizcaya in Sacramento and Lake Natoma Inn in Folsom.

. Arden Hills Country Club & Spa.

. McKinley Park rose-garden that hosts about 200 weddings annually.
