North Georgia Wedding Venue FAQs

What is the average cost of a wedding in North Georgia?

The average cost of a wedding today in North Georgia is around $20,000, though that can change considerably with each couple. It’s certainly easy to spend over $30,000 (the national average cost of a wedding), especially when splurging on venue costs or additional desires, though taking into consideration options like having a weekday wedding or a Sunday morning event can help to cut down on expenses. 

How much does a wedding venue cost in Norht Georgia?

Wedding venues can charge anywhere between $1000 to $10,000, although some that exclusively offer inclusive packages can be much higher (and save you a lot more work and expenses elsewhere!) Higher guest counts can also affect venue fees, as well as the time of year and week, so if you’re flexible with your date, you can definitely find better pricing in your venue search!

What is the best month to get married in North Georgia?

Take it from me, for outdoor weddings, you’ll definitely want to avoid the summer months of July and August. Simply due to extreme heat and humidity. Indoor weddings in air-conditioned spaces would be totally fine in the summer!

If you’re planning on an outdoor ceremony or reception, then April and May are perfect for a beautiful wedding. However, September through early November are perfect for taking advantage of extraordinary fall colors and slightly cooler weather. 

If you’re looking for beautiful outdoor wedding venues in North Georgia, I hope you’ll consider some of these exquisite locations!
