Are you ready to start planning your wedding? If you are (first of all… Congrats!) then there are a few big decisions that you need to make. One of the most important decisions is whether or not you’ll have a local wedding or go somewhere else for your big day.


At Spring Lake Events, we love being able to host local weddings for our clients. We’ve seen so many different benefits of having a local wedding, so let’s dive into some of the reasons why a local venue can be the right pick and some considerations to keep in mind while planning.

Local Weddings

Local weddings are a great way to be deeply involved in planning with your venue and save money on certain costs. If you’re going back and forth on whether or not a local wedding is the right choice for you, you’ve found the right blog.


Having a wedding that’s not local can be expensive. You’ll most likely need to travel to your wedding venue at least once and you may also need to travel in order to meet with your vendors. If you’re looking for ways to cut down on your wedding budget, then picking a local venue can be a great way to start.


It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be very stressful. Not being able to visit your venue can add some stress, so picking a local option is a great way to make the planning easier and ensure that you’re able to do what you need to do within the timeline you’ve allotted.


When you choose a wedding venue like the one we have in Georgia, you can be sure that you’re working with staff that are experienced in the area. Being able to communicate with them and rely on them for certain things can be a great way to make sure that everyone’s on the same page and that you have the support you need throughout the planning process.

Guest List

Having a destination wedding is a great option for some couples, but it can significantly impact your guest list. Guests that aren’t able to travel due to finances, work, or other obligations, won’t be able to attend your big day.


When you choose a local wedding, then you can have less limitations on your guest list. You also won’t be asking your guests to travel or take time off, so it can be a much more accessible option.
