Have you found yourself recently engaged? If so, we’d like to say two things: “Congratulations!” and, “Where in McDonough, GA is it going to be?”
Choosing a venue for your wedding is not something to take lightly. Most couples know this already, which is why they typically take at least a full year to plan their big day. There’s a couple of practical reasons for enduring that long of a wait. Not only do you have to find the perfect place to hold this event, but when you do find it, you must book it well in advance to secure the calendar date you want the most.
If you or your fiancé is a resident of McDonough, GA or somewhere close by, you may be considering this beautiful town for your wedding. In that case, you’ve chosen well.
Even though it’s small, McDonough offers a wide range of options for wedding venues to fit any budget or style of wedding. The perfect place is here, waiting for you to discover it.
Allow us to help ease the process of discovering the perfect wedding venue in McDonough by showing you four venues that are the best of the best
MB Event Lounge
What if you could choose a venue that could provide just about everything you could ever need for your small wedding or wedding reception, from decorations to event planning to a DJ?
At the MB Event Lounge, that’s exactly what you get. Located at 1352 McDonough Pl, this venue is touted as an upscale, indoor event center with so many options for extra services, it will make your head spin.
Need party supplies? MB Event Lounge rents those out. Want a customized layout for your reception in the banquet hall? That’s available, as well. Event planning? Don’t sweat it. And if you need help choosing a local vendor to provide food or entertainment, they can help with that, too.
Gallery At Hood Street
If you or your fiancé is an art lover, then you may love the Gallery at Hood Street.
This exceptional venue at 136 Hood Street boasts three separate areas where you can hold a wedding ceremony and/or reception: the Gallery, the Warehouse, and the Lawn.
Both the interior areas are lit by Edison-bulb chandeliers and feature exposed brick walls. This lends them a bright, open atmosphere that is ideal for exchanging vows, dancing your first dance as a married couple, and sampling catering from local vendors.
Meanwhile, outside, you’ll find a deck as well as a lush green expanse of grass that can fit up to 200 guests, with patio string lights overhead.
The Gallery at Hood Street isn’t just a venue, though. It truly is an artist’s gallery, which you can admire in the room that shares the same name (or pay an extra fee to have them removed for your event).
As you can tell, when we describe the Gallery at Hood Street as, “exceptional,” we mean it wholeheartedly. You couldn’t pick a more beautiful place in town to celebrate your special day.
The Hazlehurst House is one of McDonough’s treasures - not just as a wedding venue, but as a piece of local history.
Built in 1829, this stunning vintage mansion has been repurposed into a full-fledged event center with modern conveniences. Not only is it all-inclusive (even going so far as to provide you with a list of preferred decorators and photographers), but it also offers many different on-site locations to choose from to hold your ceremony and reception.
For example, you could choose to hold your ceremony out on the Veranda, in front of the house, or in the gardens; or inside the house in front of the historic fireplace, the Grand Ballroom, or the Magnolia Ballroom. Which areas you choose will depend on the size of your guest list, as well as your preference for indoor or outdoor festivities. But one thing you can be sure of: no matter where you go, you’ll always find beauty and elegance.
Holding your wedding at the Hazlehurst House is a one-of-a-kind experience you’ll find only in McDonough.
Refinery Hill’s name suits it perfectly. The venue, located on a sprawling vineyard on 500 Pullin Rd in McDonough, offers just about the most refined wedding experience in the area.
Not only can you book the entire Refinery Hill facility, including the barn with its beautiful tables and chairs, and various styles of elegant decor, but you can also book a wine tasting room. You’ll also have the option to have the in-house executive chef craft a delicious farm-to-table meal for you and your guests, complete with hors d'oeuvres and multiple courses.
For fine dining, an incomparable outdoor location, and an atmosphere that is somehow both upscale and down home, booking your wedding ceremony and reception at Refinery Hill may just be the best decision you’ve ever made.
There’s one other important thing you need to take care of for your wedding, preferably as early as possible. And that is wedding insurance.
You may never have thought of purchasing a wedding insurance policy before. But it’s a wise idea, especially if you’re like most couples in the US and plan to spend upwards of $20,000 on the event (believe it or not, the average cost of weddings in the US in 2022 was around $27,000).
Wedding insurance will cover things like and is usually very inexpensive:
If you’re having your wedding in McDonough, GA, then it makes sense to go to a local expert for insurance. At J Wood Insurance, we can recommend and set you up with a policy that matches both the needs of your event and the needs of your wallet.
