The Country Club Couple: The Truth About These “Elite” Venues
Mar 28, 2017 09:43 AM Back
Country clubs have been THE quintessential wedding spot for “upper crust” couples and the center of elegantly understated chic celebrations….and contrary to popular propaganda you don’t have to be one of distinct elites to host your haute “I Dos” on the premises.

Here are the top five misconceptions about country clubs that couples need to know.

1.  Your “elite” event is for “Members Only”:  Not so, the general public is encouraged to rent out the facility for their fabulous fete. Just  check to see that your date isn’t book for a private members party.

2.  Country Clubs Celebrations Spell “Country Club” Prices: Yes, while membership may be “out of reach”…these venues often offer costs that are quite comfortable for couples. In fact, when comparing them with other elegant venues they are quite comparable and competitive…not to mention they tend to give you some excellent packages (if you ask).  Plus, there are plenty of other perks including a gourmet menu and facilities to accommodate the most casual, couture celebration to the most “over –the-top”  fabulously Gatsbyesque black tie extravaganzas.

3. You Are Bound By Rigid Rules: True (to some degree ) but there is also plenty of room for creativity and flexibility as long as  you don’t break the general safety restrictions and precautions. Other than that Country Clubs, like any other venue are committed to keeping ALL clients happy and helping you create the wonderful wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

4.  Your Event Will Be Subject To Member’s Schedules: Yes and No. While members will NOT be prohibited from spending the day on the premises (which they have paid for), they will NOT have access to the area you’ve secured or rented or to your event. They may even be asked NOT to attend as per usual so the facility can focus on catering to you and your truly one-of-a-kind PRIVATE party.

5. Non-Members Are Treated Differently: Sure there are things that members, by virtue of membership ARE entitled to and that you won’t have access to. But, you WILL get  what you pay for and you WILL be given the royal treatment and treated like King and Queen for the day.
