The Perfect Summer Wedding Destination

Something about summer weddings brings out the romantic spirit in just about anybody, even those who don’t believe in love at first sight, or soulmates, or writing silly love poems. If you’re planning a summer wedding, consider one of the most romantic resorts in Georgia, Callaway Resort & Gardens. Read on to discover why summer is the best time to get married, and why Georgia is the perfect summer wedding destination.

You Can’t Beat the Weather

It would be nice if the weather could be consistent, especially if you’re planning an outdoor wedding. While you can never guarantee there won’t be rain, summer weather tends to be consistent during the summer months. For Georgia, that means warm temperatures prevail for most of the season. Make yours a destination wedding at a resort that comes with a beach and a pool. You can bet the turnout will be higher and your guests will rave about what a fantastic time they had!

The Blooms Are Beautiful!

What better time to experience the beauty of Georgia’s multitude of colorful flowers than at a wedding? Flowers available during the months of June, July, and August are not as readily available during other times of the year. Some are only available during that time so if you have your heart set on including lilies, hydrangea, or lavender in your wedding bouquet, summer is the ideal time for a wedding. A summer wedding at Callaway Resort & Gardens also means you and your guests will be treated to some of the most spectacular floral displays in the country. Summer flowers in the Garden include flowering trees such as magnolia and crape myrtle, and a variety of wildflowers.


Unique Wedding Venues

Whether your guest list is small and intimate, or you plan to invite several hundred family and friends, there’s a venue just right for your wedding. For the very small event, the Ida Cason Callaway Chapel is a charming and romantic spot for your ceremony. A larger guest list can be accommodated either inside one of the resort’s stunning ballrooms, or outside on the expansive lawn where your guests will enjoy views of sparkling Robin Lake. The Virginia Hand Callaway Discovery Center is also a popular venue for weddings. If you choose the Discovery Center, wedding guests will enjoy admission to the Gardens at no charge on the day of the wedding. Don’t wait too long, Callaway Resort & Gardens is one of the premier wedding venues in Georgia. Talk to a wedding specialist today to finalize your plans.

Make It a Destination Wedding

Many couples today plan destination weddings to give guests, especially those who travel from out of state, more time to enjoy the occasion. Why not have your guests all stay in the same place and make it a memorable get-away for all? The Lodge & Spa is one option at Callaway Resort & Gardens with tastefully appointed rooms and luxurious amenities. Perhaps you have several large families attending. The Villas are a home-away-from-home with everything needed to rest and relax, prepare meals, and enjoy the forested environment from a private screen-in porch. Book a cottage for smaller groups. Cottages have the same cozy feel with kitchen facilities and free WiFi. All accommodations are created to please the most discriminating guests but are also designed for families and children. Your guests will never have a dull moment between the swimming pools, the beach, the bike trails, and the endless opportunities for all kinds of fun!

Book your wedding today at Callaway Resorts & Gardens and don’t forget to mention to your guests what a wonderful time they’ll have at your wedding get-away!
