Why Austin Wedding Venues Are the Best in the Nation
Congratulations! You’ve got the ring and now you’re probably in wedding planning mode. But where to begin? Take it from us, when you’re planning the perfect wedding, the best place to start is by choosing the perfect venue. And Austin wedding venues are absolutely the best in the nation! Here’s why:
Why Austin Wedding Venues are The Best
Variety of Venues
It is no surprise that Dripping Springs is the Wedding Capital of Texas. When it comes to Austin wedding venues, the Hill Country and surrounding areas offer a wide variety of locations where any bride can find exactly the venue she’s looking for. Austin wedding venues come in all shapes and sizes, from grand ballrooms, to rustic Western barns, to quaint chapels and modern elegant event centers, like The Arlo. Most brides will be able to find a venue that matches her style and her budget at an Austin wedding venue.
So Much Sunshine
Austin is a humid subtropical climate, which means we have long, hot summers and short, mild winters. If you blink, you’ll likely miss our brief spring and fall seasons. While Austin does have rain storms and the occasional tornado, we enjoy an abundance of sunshine most of the year. This is very good news for brides who have their hearts set on an outdoor wedding! And while the Hill Country has some of the most gorgeous outdoor-wedding-views a bride can ask for, many Austin wedding venues also offer stunning indoor event options, just in case. The Arlo is one such venue, as we offer several indoor locations in addition to our several stunning outdoor locations for our brides to choose from.
Texas is a foodie’s paradise, and the Austin area offers an incredibly eclectic variety of some of the best food in the state. From to-die-for steaks to spicy Tex-Mex, and the most mouth-watering barbecue you’ll ever eat, Austin food can’t be beat. And caterers in the Austin area draw on our history of incredible food when planning the menus they offer couples planning their big day. Whether you’re looking for a barbecue rehearsal feast or an elegant plated meal for your wedding guests, you can’t beat the options in Austin.
Austin wedding venues are pretty incredible in and of themselves. But the vendors they work with make all the details of your special day come to life. If you know anything about Austin and the surrounding area, you’ll know some of the best musicians live and work in the area. Brides will have a hard time narrowing down the right wedding band or musician to make her reception the best party in town! Not to mention the incredibly creative and talented florists, bakers, photographers, make-up artists and stylists Austin brides have to choose from. And don’t forget the spot-on wedding planners who ensure their clients get the wedding of their dreams. With all of our insanely talented wedding vendors working for you, your wedding day will be a dream come true.
Who doesn’t love to do a little shopping when they’re exploring a city? The Austin area can’t be beat when it comes to getting some retail therapy. From giant upscale shopping centers like The Domain to small, independently-owned boutiques to amazing thrift stores, shoppers will find everything they can hope to find. There are also several small-town downtown shopping squares shoppers will love, such as downtown Wimberley, New Braunfels, and Fredericksburg. It doesn’t hurt that just a stone’s throw from all the Hill Country shops and boutiques are plenty of wineries, breweries and distilleries in case you get thirsty from all your shopping.
Austin nightclubs have always ranked high in the nation’s best places for bachelor and bachelorette parties, and for good reason. Sixth Street has been a mainstay for Austin nightlife for decades. But now, there are even more locations for brides, grooms, and their crew to fit a little nightlife fun into their wedding weekend. Rainey Street, East Sixth, and Congress all offer great alternatives for a fun night out. Each district has streets lined with pubs, bars, live music, and food all with their own unique (and sometimes downright weird) vibe. If you’re looking for a memorable night out on the town with your wedding party, Austin is the place to do it!
As you can see, Austin wedding venues offer far more than beautiful places to host your wedding. Your wedding party and guests will enjoy a diverse array of outdoor adventures, unique shopping, and exciting nightlife to keep them busy all weekend. And your big day will be perfectly planned and executed by Austin’s most talented vendors, musicians, and planners Texas has to offer. With beautiful weather, abundant sunshine and beautiful Hill Country views, Austin wedding venues are the best in the nation. If we do say so ourselves!
