Monterey Wedding Venues: Your Wedding Venue Planning Guide for Monterey, CA and Beyond

Situated along Northern California's central coastline is the stunning city of Monterey. The seaside town is known for its laidback way of life, proximity to the water and an abundance of stunning locations that would be ideal for tying the knot. Embark on your journey toward wedded bliss by learning everything you need to know about searching for Monterey wedding venues below.

Wedding Venues in Monterey

Although there are many things to love about Monterey, most couples choose to represent their love of the beach as part of their wedding day. As Monterey boasts lots of venues that are near or overlooking the ocean, it will be easy to incorporate the element into your festivities. Hunt for restaurants, hotels and historic homes that allow you to tie the ocean into your ceremony or reception.

A number of nearby vineyards offer venue rentals as well, if you prefer to ditch the coastline. Be sure to consider gardens and arboretums as options for your wedding, too. Once you've decided between banquet halls and botanic gardens, take a look at your wedding budget. On average, couples in Monterey spend between $30,000 and $40,000 on their wedding day. Only spend what you and your partner are comfortable with, and consult one another before making any deposits on venues.

Travel and Accommodations in Monterey

Three miles southeast of the city is the Monterey Regional Airport, which services the area. For more extensive flight options, look to the San Jose Airport or the San Francisco International Airport if you or your guests arrive from afar. The best way to traverse around the coastal town is by way of a car, which you can rent at the airport or inside the city.

Accommodations in Monterey range from massive resorts to charming boutique hotels. There are more than a few luxury hotels in the area, and travelers coming from out of town can expect to pay anywhere from $150 to $300 a night. For additional accommodation options, check out the secluded beachside retreats of Carmel-By-The-Sea or the city of Salinas, the hometown of John Steinbeck.

Weather Forecast for Monterey

The beauty of getting married in California is that you can plan on moderate weather all year long. The cold season sees highs in the 50s and 60s, and summers are known for staying rather cool due to the city's coastal position, hovering in the 70s and occasional 80-degree temperatures. Rain is common from October through April, so if you get hitched during this time be sure to have indoor spaces available for you and your wedding guests. Additionally, springs and summers in Monterey can be cool, foggy and even a bit gray, so don't be surprised if the sun isn't shining on your Big Day.

Want your wedding to feel like something out of a fairytale? Get married in Monterey, California, and use the planning tools available here on WeddingWire to organize your celebration. From decoration inspiration to registry resources, we have everything you need to plan your coastal nuptials.
