Gorgeous Orange County Wedding Venues

Orange County, commonly referred to as "The OC", was made a household name for many with the TV show of the same name. But did you know it's also a great place to say "I do"? With all kinds of wedding locations and venues, it's the perfect spot to plan the wedding of your dreams.

Popular Wedding Venues in Orange County & Prices

Some people might forget that while Orange County is it's own region, it's made up of some very well known cities. Those include: Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, and Huntington Beach. The most famous location is Anahiem, which is home to Disneyland! And who doesn't love Disneyland?

Maybe you and your fiancé(e) are interested in going down the more traditional route for your wedding location. Other popular wedding venues in Orange County include: golf courses, yacht clubs, mansions and beachfront venues. Most of those have the fabulous option of choosing whether or not your ceremony and reception venues are indoors or outdoors. And with gorgeous Southern California weather, who wouldn't want to get married at an outdoor or open-air wedding venue.

If you're looking for a more casual wedding location, beachfront wedding venues tend to be a great choice. They let you and your wedding guests kick off your shoes and stick your feet in the sand. A mansion or estate wedding venue is great for incorporate vintage aspects into your special day. If you and your fiancé(e) are history buffs, a historical estate may be the wedding location for you.

For those looking to book a venue off the beaten path, Orange County has some very unique wedding reception venues. If you want to take a nautical themed wedding to the next level, take your wedding guests on a cruise ship out into the Pacific ocean. If you, your fiancé(e), and wedding guests love art, history, or science, consider booking a museum for your wedding venue.

Total wedding costs in Orange County are a bit higher than the national average, coming in around $34,289. That's about $5,300 more than the national average of $29,000. Don't fret about making your wedding budget identical to the average. It's just an average and each wedding is unique!

Travel & Hotel Accommodations

There are two airports for out-of-town guests to use when flying into Orange County. The first is John Wayne Airport, which is about a 10-15 minute drive to wedding locations near the center of the county depending on traffic. This would be a great choice for out-of-town guests if your wedding venue is in the center of the county, closer to Irvine, or Huntington Beach. The second airport is Long Beach Airport. Like the name suggests, it's much closer to Long Beach. If your ceremony and reception venues are closer to Long Beach, you might encourage guests to use this airport instead. Though it only does domestic flights so if you've got international looking for a non-stop flight, John Wayne Airport is the way to go.

A hotel in Orange County will cost, on average, around $123. And we know finding hotels for your out-of-town guests that are close to your wedding venue and affordable can be overwhelming. But it doesn't need to be! Check out this awesome wedding hotel block service that helps find and compare a large number of rooms close to your wedding venue. They do all the hard work and you just have to pass along the information to your guests.

Weather Considerations

Orange County's weather is pretty temperate year round. With a semi-arid steppe climate from sitting between humid and desert climates, Orange County is a good place to host a wedding year round.

The warm season lasts from the beginning of July to the beginning of October with daily high temperatures between 70 and 90 degrees. The hottest days are likely to be experienced in August. If you've booked an outdoor or open-air wedding venue, make sure you have a place for guests to get out of the heat and stay hydrated. There is very little chance of rain during this time.

The cold season lasts from the end of November to the beginning of April with daily high temperatures below 68 degrees. The coldest days will like be experienced during the end of December. If you're hosting a winter wedding in Orange County but want to take pictures outside, make sure you and your wedding party are dressed appropriately. Open-air wedding venues are also still an option as long as there are heaters. Rain can be expected during the start of February.

When you're ready to start your Orange County wedding venue search, WeddingWire has everything you'll need to find the perfect wedding location.
