Our next Editor’s choice award goes to Springfield Country Club! Springfield Country Club is open to the public has every amenity to make your wedding experience perfect. A newly built Courtyard Marriott hotel is located on the country club’s grounds, and provide rooms or suites for guests just steps away from the reception. They also offer a complimentary overnight stay for couples who book their reception at the Springfield Country Club.
In addition to the hotel, they also have an on-premise restaurant: Tavola Restaurant and Bar. The restaurant is great for guests staying through the weekend, for meals and drinks before and after the festivities. Tavola’s patio overlooks the 18 public hole golf course, which is also a nice amenity for wedding guests staying for the weekend.
For brides, grooms, and guests in need of relaxation, there is the Joseph Anthony spa and salon. Get ready for your big day on site without having to worry about travelling. With everything the Springfield Country Club offers, there’s no need to leave. Their staff will make sure everything works out perfectly for your big day.
We spoke to Janet Rickards, the Sales Manager for Springfield Country Club, on how couples should plan on finding a venue.
There is more to the wedding venue space than just guest capacity. Janet advises, “When choosing your venue, select a reception space that is able to comfortably accommodate not just your guests, but also your entertainment, food and beverage.” Not every wedding is the same, and while most venues will try to accommodate, make sure you keep this is mind. Janet also advises, “If you are having a band, want a large dance floor with plenty of room for your guests to dance and mingle, have food or beverage stations, or photo op or lounge areas – take that all into mind when selecting the right venue and utilize floor plans so that your event is able to be executed in the way that you have envisioned.” No one wants to feel cramped at a wedding.
For those looking at booking the country club, there are three different event spaces to consider. The Grand Ballroom, the Golf View Ballroom and the Fairway Ballroom, each with its own unique features and crystal chandeliers. They also offer outdoor ceremony event space options. They include a ceremony garden surrounded by lush greenery and a charming gazebo complimented by a stone walkway and foliage. Both spots are perfect for romantic ceremonies under the sun.
In addition to her knowledge about choosing a venue, Janet also informed us of some recent wedding trends she has seen. “In addition to the wedding cake, many couples are enhancing their dessert course with added sweet treats for guests to enjoy. From gourmet donut walls to dessert martini bars, ice cream sundae stations and fresh baked pastries, the crowd-pleasing possibilities are endless! We love working together with our clients and culinary team on customizing the perfect assortment to make things extra sweet and sentimental.”
