Planning your Wine Country Wedding

January 20th, 2015 by Rachel

Wine Country WeddingThe first thing we have to say is congratulations on your engagement! Your wedding is one of those really significant moments in your life as a couple. Now that you are in planning mode, one of the first things to do is decide on a venue. We can certainly help with that here at Youngberg Hill.

There are key questions to ask yourself while you are planning your Willamette Valley wedding. These are:

What is important to me about having a wine country wedding?Wine Country Wedding

Oregon wine country is stunning. We have fantastic wine and can provide a great wedding venue. However, deciding what is most important to you about having a wine country wedding can help you figure out which venue will provide you with what you need most adequately.

You may be considering Youngberg Hill for your wedding venue because of our amazing views and expansive vineyard. You might feel it’s more important that we have an Inn as well as a vineyard, so that you and your bridal party are not rushed on the day of the wedding. The wine itself may be what you use to judge your wedding venue.

No matter the reason, decide on what your wine country wedding must be able to feature. This way you can make the perfect choice for this incredibly important event.

What are the marital laws in the location I have picked?

You may have chosen a destination location for your wine country wedding. That’s fantastic! This means that you and your partner need to understand what is necessary to obtain a marriage license and file for marriage in that state. For example, here in Oregon there is a three day waiting period from the day the marriage license is issued until it can be used. However, a waiver can be purchased for that waiting period. Research the ins and outs so you and your partner can become officially wed on the date you chose.

Is the date I want available?

Wedding venues tend to book up fast – that’s why you are doing your planning in winter, right? Be sure that as soon as you find the perfect venue you get it booked on the date you want. Do not send out wedding invitations until you definitely have the venue on the date of your choice.

What recommendations can the venue make?Beautiful Wine Country Wedding

Because we are a working vineyard and Inn and we host a number of weddings every year, we have many wonderful people we have worked with in the past. Use our knowledge of local experts in wedding planning, flowers, and catering to help you plan the perfect wedding.

Planning a wedding is a huge undertaking. It’s a beautiful, fun celebration of your love. Let us help you make your big day just right.
