Atlanta Wedding Ideas
The southern charm, hospitality, and great weather of Atlanta make the city a popular location for weddings. Brides and grooms are guaranteed sun, a range of flowers, and numerous wedding venues all year round.
Before the Big Day
Whether you’re local or not, a bachelor or bachelorette party in Atlanta is the best way to bid farewell to single life. The city’s craft beer scene has exploded in the last decade, making it the home of several great breweries, we especially like the beer garden at Orpheus Brewing. If you and your group want to get active, hire a bike and cycle around the Atlanta BeltLine – there are plenty of restaurants, parks, and street art pieces to stop off at along the way. If cycling doesn’t satisfy your inner daredevil, sign your group up for a day of high-altitude adventure at Treetop Quest in Dunwoody. Have a whale of a time at the aerial adventure park as you whizz through the trees on ziplines.
For your evening activities, take advantage of Atlanta’s great nightlife and visit one of the city’s many bars. If panoramic city skyline views are your thing, head on over to the Sky Lounge, or if your group wants to sample some of Atlanta’s best cocktails, try the Foxtrot Liquor Bar for some of their original concoctions.
There’s plenty of magical locations to tie the knot in Atlanta but if you really want to push the boat out, here are some of the most spectacular Atlanta wedding venues.
Atlanta Botanical Garden
The ABG has not one but 14 locations available for weddings. For a traditional atmosphere the Day Hall, a banquet event space, is a popular choice. An intimate ceremony is best in the harmonious Japanese Garden, whereas the views at the Alston Overlook create a spectacular backdrop for the big day. The garden was named #3 in Top 25 ATL Venues by Wedding Rule.
The Georgia Aquarium
Surround yourself with the wonders of the sea world as you and your partner share your vows. Take your wedding pictures in front of the aquarium walls and give your guests a night to remember. The Georgia Aquarium is fully equipped with everything you need to plan the wedding of your dreams. Their expert team can include caterers and a professional photographer to top off the unique venue.
The Fox Theatre
Exchange rings with your partner in the 1929 Moroccan-inspired grandeur of the Fox Theatre. What says romance and elegance better than the incredible architecture of this historic building? The venue is even home to a starry sky installation complete with ethereal clouds and 96 stars to light up your evening. Dance the night away in one of the two ballrooms and enjoy fresh air and great views on the beautiful roof terrace.
We’ve discussed the venue and the pre-celebrations, but what about the logistics? When it comes to wedding transportation you need to have a company you can rely on. At Roundabout Atlanta, we’re locals who know the streets and venues like the back of our hands. We have ten years of experience in getting brides, grooms, and guests to where they need to be on the day of their wedding. Our fleet ranges from luxury town cars and SUVs to a 56-seater motorcoach.
Add That Atlanta Twist
If you’ve decided to get married in Atlanta, why not incorporate the location into your theme? Add a local twist with Georgia-inspired cocktails and local flowers. Of course, the peach theme is a given in the state that is synonymous with the stone fruit. Think peach bellinis, peach blossom, bourbon peach smashes, and Georgia mules for drinks. As for flowers, the Cherokee rose is the states’ official flower and an excellent choice for a bouquet or table decoration. More beautiful local flowers include cornflowers, vervain, asters, and blanket flowers.
An Atlanta wedding is an excellent choice for several reasons, but especially because of our seasons. Our winters are warmer and this means you can enjoy mild temperatures without paying peak prices.
