Best Day Ever.

My husband and I recently got married at Avon Gardens on June 25th, 2022. What an absolute DREAM! If you are looking to be married outdoors in the most beautiful outdoor setting you just found your wedding venue. From the moment we first booked to the moment we arrived for the rehearsal I knew we were in great hands. The staff we worked with (Karen, Tori and Sherry) were all knowledgeable and professional. They certainly put my mind at ease for such a busy and important day. My family didn’t have to do a single thing day of for set up. Their staff took notes at the rehearsal and had everything ready to go for the big day. Our guests (and myself) were in awe by how immaculate the gardens were kept. I had multiple guests tell me it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. I can’t wait to see the pictures from the photographer as the night sky had the perfect sunset backdrop! Thanks again to everyone at Avon Gardens for creating memories to last a lifetime!

Beautiful Venue

I love a pros and cons list so here we go!


Pros:

(1) The gardens are STUNNING! I mean, wow. (2) The staff is perfection. Didn't even need a day-of coordinator. (The DJ also helped with the timeline!) (3) You get to choose your own food/alcohol vendors. (4) More cost-effective than a lot of venues (5) Rentable items (signs, center pieces, table numbers, card/gift holder)


***************************************************************************************************************
Cons:

(1) If you live in Indy, traffic is a nightmare. Even on Saturday morning when we went to pick up our car, still horrible. (2) They charge $300/hour for the "getting ready room"—I had assumed that would be included (3) There's an extra tent charge based on guest numbers. (Despite the tents being rented and set up anyway 24/7.) We also didn't know that until the final payment was due.
*****************************************************************************************************************


Honestly—the pros definitely outweighed the cons. I was a stressed bride, but really shouldn't have been. They had thought of most things and covered it for us. And those cons are communication problems or policies that could be easily fixed. The team is fantastic, the grounds are gorgeous, and the price is solid. :)
