The summer months can be a reminder of the beauty of nature and the passionate bond between the bride and groom. It can also be bright, hot, and uncomfortable without the right preparations. (Like booking our fully air-conditioned venue!) Before settling on the details and plans for your Twin Cities Event, here are a few guidelines to ensure things run smoothly and everybody has a good time.
Choose A Location With Indoor and Outdoor Availability
Weather can be unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean you have to hide inside. Finding wedding venues that can accommodate an outdoor experience to enjoy the fresh air and greenery can really liven up the ceremony. At the same time, having an indoor option that provides air conditioning and won’t wilt any floral decoration is a big plus. You don’t need to compromise — pick something that offers both! Green Acres offers both a barn wedding venue and an outdoor wedding venue giving you options to choose from.
Send Timely Invitations
Traveling during summertime vacations is common, and you want to make you’re your guests will save the date. It can be deceptively easy to get wrapped up in planning and leave the invitations on the backburner. Be proactive and book your wedding venue early on to save yourself from trouble later!
Serve Lighter Cuisine
The heat and humidity can be daunting, and while a big steak dinner might sound appealing now, consider how it will affect the crowd. Opt for finger food and fresh local produce incorporated into dishes. Fruit themed dessert is light and pays homage to the summertime. Green Acres makes choosing catering easy as we offer three different caterers for you to choose from.
Cool Off With Tasty Drinks
Select your beverages in keeping with the summer theme. Serve fruity drinks on ice and chilled rosé to refresh your guests. Embrace a signature cocktail that’s bright and colorful to reflect the mood of your nuptials. Of course, don’t forget that alcohol dehydrates you, so provide plenty of water at every stage of the evening!
When searching for “wedding venues near me,” your ideal spot needs to incorporate a little bit of everything for the idyllic summer wedding. Find the Minneapolis (and surrounding areas!) events center that has all the qualifications of a perfect wedding venue. For a grand and rustic event center that will be truly memorable, Green Acres Event Center is a spectacular barn wedding venue with three entertainment spaces that embody Eden Prairie’s countryside charm. This historic monument was built in the 1940’s and has been lovingly restored to provide everything you could want in your ceremony.
With three splendid options for in-house catering, select from diverse menus to coordinate food and beverages that fit seamlessly into your theme. Submit your inquiries to Green Acres Event Center and don’t procrastinate another minute on planning your big day!
