Planning a Charlottesville Wedding

Planning a wedding in the Charlottesville area?  We don’t blame you.  It is a gorgeous place to hold such an important event – whether it be outside with a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, at one of the many historic sites throughout the state, or at one of the area’s luxurious hotels or country clubs.  


If you are a history buff with a soft spot for classic elegance, there is no place more perfect to wed than Monticello, home of the third President, Thomas Jefferson. With sprawling lawns and unmatched elegance there is nothing quite like a celebration at the Charlottesville historical landmark. The home offers a selection of venues on site, for weddings, large and small, rehearsal dinners and wedding brunches.  Keswick Hall, with 48 guest rooms and a function hall that holds 150 people, offers the height of elegance with an air of history.


Country estates can provide the perfect backdrop for a Charlottesville wedding.   Belle Haven is historic and beautiful, with views of the James River. If you want a more rustic affair, The Boar’s Head Inn is one of a kind. From casual to formal, the venue can accommodate whatever you envision with pastoral flair. 


If you are looking for a laid-back ambiance with unmatched mountain views, plan an intimate event at the Blue Mountain Brewery.  The event hall seats 64 people, and has a fabulous outdoor patio and porch, not to mention award-winning beer selection.


There are so many gorgeous places to get married in Virginia, leaving so many decisions to be made.  If you are unsure which direction you would like to go, start at the Charlottesville Elegance in Bridal Show.


The show takes place on August 18th, 2013 from 1pm-4pm at the elegant Charlottesville Omni Hotel and features wedding professionals and vendors who can help you make your day unique and special.  While you are there perusing the exhibits, take in a fashion show featuring wedding dresses as well as attire for the bridal party.  Try food and, of course, cake from exceptional chefs and maybe take home some prizes and free goodies.   


There will also be a “grooms lounge” if your other half would like to tag along.  From florists to formal wear, the Charlottesville Elegance in Bridal Show has the people that you will want to speak with regarding your upcoming Charlottesville nuptials. Regardless of what you decide, any Charlottesville event is sure to be beautiful. But if you’re overwhelmed by the options or don’t know where to begin, start at the Charlottesville Elegance in Bridal Show, where you will surely be started off on the right foot.
