Finding A Wedding Venue

February 15, 2019 by revjeri

As a newly engaged couple, one of the first decisions you must make is where to get married. Finding a wedding venue that fits your personality, guest count and budget can be challenging.

Even if you are exchanging vows in a church, you still need to find a place for your reception.

In the Sacramento Valley there are hundreds of possibilities. Including Napa, Sonoma or the Lake Tahoe area will increase your options.

Fortunately, there is a free online resource that can help you: The Venue Vixens.


Who Are The Venue Vixens?

The Venue Vixens is made up of four experienced, professional wedding and event planners who have banded together to become a resource to help you – the bride, the retreat planner, the organizer, in finding the PERFECT location to hold your special event.

We are familiar with countless venues and have done the research (or we know how to ask the questions!) so that your venue hunting and scouting trips can be controlled, saving you time and worries, to ensure that the facility you are considering is within your budget consideration, head count needs, style, and specifications.

How The Venue Vixens Can Help You Find Your Wedding Venue

There are 14 venue categories listed on the website, including B&B, Country Clubs, Gardens, Urban Chic and Wineries.

Each category lists dozens of venues with clickable links to take you directly to their website.

Featured venues – those who advertise on The Vixen Venues website – also include a detailed review of the property and its amenities.

Why Use The Venue Vixens Website?

First of all, these women have collectively been planning and coordinating weddings for decades. They KNOW what’s important when it comes to finding the perfect venue.

In addition, the Vixens have “retired” from wedding planning, so there are absolutely no strings attached. You can use the website as a resource without receiving any “follow-up” emails or offers.

And finally, it’s a FREE service!

So, really, the question is: Why not use The Venue Vixens?!
