How to Plan a Georgia Wedding
Creating a wedding story that expresses your love and your style can be daunting. Here are a few tips to help you tie the knot without getting tied up.
1. Save the Date
Choose a time of year that best fits your vision, schedule, and budget
In addition to being an ideal and charming locale for a variety of Georgia vacations, Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club hosts unforgettable indoor and outdoor weddings year-round. Celebrate in spring or summer with an outdoor ceremony and a lakeside buffet. Book a winter or fall black-tie event in the elegant ballroom with formal dinner service. Or curate your own wedding weekend from top to bottom. Pick your season, match your style with the perfect lakeside venue, and save the date.
2. Set the Scene
Select a premier Georgia wedding destination
From bridesmaids’ luncheons to one-of-a-kind receptions, the flexibility and beauty of this property make it a lovely setting for an entire wedding itinerary. Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club accommodates and delights couples with a variety of indoor and outdoor ceremony scenes and venues.
As one of the most versatile and fashionable wedding venues in Georgia, this lake resort has an array of settings to fit events of all sizes and styles. Couples who want something intimate and casual will find the Lakeview Lawn or one of the many scenic areas throughout Georgia Veteran’s State Park to be a picturesque paradise for saying “I do.”
Larger guest lists with a formal flare enjoy the space and decor possibilities of the Lake Blackshear Conference Center & Ballroom.
Looking to pull off a ceremony no one is soon to forget? Take to the water with your guests aboard Lady Liberty, the resort’s event boat.
Book a weekend away with your fiancée and make your venue-hunting expedition a romantic getaway. It’s a great way to experience the resort and check out the spaces and endless options of starting your next chapter on the banks of Lake Blackshear.
3. Sleep Well
Truly accommodating lodging options
Treat your wedding party to amazing offers and resort deals, like golf packages, refreshing outdoor recreation at Georgia Veteran’s State Park, and cozy accommodations that range from private suites to sweet set-ups that are perfect for groups, such as the lakeside Villas.
Wedding packages include overnight accommodations for the bride and groom and reduced rates for parties that book 10 rooms or more.
4. Eat Well
Make your menu memorable (and affordable)
In addition to providing the tables and chairs set up and breakdown and the china, glass, and silverware, each wedding package is paired with a deliciously, festive menu.
The Water’s Edge Wedding Package is built for an elegant black-tie affair and features a classy cocktail hour with butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, a four-course plated dinner, and a champagne toast. Large parties can opt for an elegant, gourmet dinner buffet with the Crimson Sunset Wedding Package.
The Lakeside Wedding Package is designed for early afternoon weddings and includes a cocktail hour, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, and a lunch or brunch buffet complete with a mimosa bar.
Make it easy on yourself and your guests with the Rehearsal Dinner Package. As your families unite, make more time together with an on-site event. The Executive Chef will create an exclusive dinner buffet for this memorable feast, and your crew can enjoy an open beer and wine bar during the festivities.
5. Capture the Magic
The proof is in the photos
Simply amazing sunsets, an ever-evolving lush and enchanting landscape full of interesting native species, and the array of serene lakeside vistas make your entire event a photo op. From azaleas blooms in spring to evergreens in winter, Lake Blackshear is a breathtaking backdrop all year round.
