Reception Sites 101: Country and Private Clubs

February 7, 2015

With all the timeless tradition of a ballroom and natural beauty of a tented outdoor wedding, country and private clubs offer the best of both worlds. Most can accommodate small and large gatherings, anywhere from 50 to 500 guests. You’ll find there’s plenty of room to mix and mingle and easy, ample parking — two things that are sure to please your family and friends!

Usually there are multiple sites within the club available for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and even tented options. And since many such private sites are in fact golf clubs, your wedding will boast sweeping views of pristine green and lots of outdoor backdrops for picturesque photo ops. You’ll also find that a lot of these clubs are situated near water, adding to the natural beauty.

Inside, these clubs are typically very classic in feel, with grand chandeliers, high ceilings, and first class catering. Since most clubs have a chef on staff, you can relax knowing that your dinner menu rests in talented, experienced hands. Or if you’d prefer the flexibility of bringing in a caterer of your choice, there are some private clubs that do allow outside caterers.
