North Carolina Wedding Venues, Wedding Venues in North Carolina

While the state has maintained its southern charm, North Carolina is nevertheless speeding into the future. Fast-growing cities like Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington are booming with a growing, diverse population and plenty of cultural opportunities. Bustling college towns, like Chapel Hill offer trendy art galleries, breweries, and tons of nightlight.

Outside of its bigger cities, North Carolina offers residents a nearly limitless array of outdoor activities. The Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains are the perfect getaway for hiking, mountain biking, rafting, and a long day of fly fishing. On the other side of the state, the coastal plains include long stretches of quiet beaches where the sand is warm and the ocean waves are waiting to tickle toes.

Searching for Wedding Venues in North Carolina

North Carolina has no shortage of amazing wedding venues. Whether you want fancy and formal or low-key and outdoorsy, you can find the perfect North Carolina wedding venue. To begin your search, start thinking about the general theme of your wedding.

Brides and grooms with their hearts set on a formal wedding may want to look for luxury hotels in the larger cities of the state. If you want to stick to your wedding budget, country clubs are another great option, and North Carolina is also home to a number of historic mansions. Many include beautiful courtyards and wonderful rooms for dining and dancing.

Couples who want to take advantage of North Carolina’s natural beauty should look into garden and waterfront weddings. These options will help you connect to nature and provide amazing photo opportunities.

And, finally, don’t forget about the beach. North Carolina offers a variety of excellent beach wedding venues, including glamorous resorts, historic inns, and oceanfront restaurants. One of the state’s most intriguing options is an island wedding on one of North Carolina’s offshore islands.

How to Choose Your North Carolina Wedding Venue

Once you’ve narrowed down your wedding venues in North Carolina to a few top choices, it’s time to schedule a venue tour. This is your opportunity to walk through the venue and see it for yourself. You’ll also get to meet the venue coordinator and the events team.

Come prepared with questions. First, if you have a rough estimate of your guest list, make sure the venue can accommodate your party. Next, double-check that your dates are available. If your dates are still flexible and you want to save a little money, ask if the venue provides discounts during the off-season or for weekday weddings. Next, ask about available wedding packages and check to see if you can bring in your own vendors.

Once you choose a wedding venue, it’s time to move forward with the rest of your planning. You’ll need to finalize that guest list, start choosing vendors, building your wedding website, and – don’t forget – looking for that perfect dress. At WeddingWire we’ve got the tools to help you with all your wedding planning needs.
