Your wedding day should be one of the best days of your life. It’s a celebration of the life you have built together and a moment to share your commitment with the people you love most in this world. That’s why you deserve to have everything exactly the way you want it right down to the last little detail. And when you’re planning your perfect day, finding the right venue for your special day should be one of your top priorities.
At Burl Oaks Golf Club, we love helping couples kick off their lives together with beautiful celebrations that make their wedding dreams come true. Let’s take a look at some of the many ways we can help your vision become a reality with wedding facilities at Burl Oaks.
Choosing the Right Wedding Venue
The right venue will bring your wedding vision to life and create a day you and your loved ones will never forget. It’s always a good idea to schedule an appointment and spend some time looking around any venues you’re considering. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re checking out venues:
- Your approximate guest count.
You need to know approximately how many guests you’re going to have at your wedding ceremony and reception so the venue you reserve will be able to accommodate everyone. You don’t want to take a chance on reserving a venue that isn’t big enough to accommodate your guests, a problem that unfortunately comes up far too often with smaller venues. Additionally, understanding how many guests you’ll have will help you plan your menu and get an accurate quote on the overall venue rate.
- Look at what’s available through the venue.
Especially if you’re working with a budget, it’s important to understand what types of rentals and equipment come with the venue rental or are available. Working directly with the venue takes a few things off of your plate and can almost be like having a wedding planner (or a second one). Additionally, budget-minded couples may find that a venue that offers rentals on details like linens, tables, or even decorations can do so at a more accessible cost.
- Consider what the venue will be like for guests attending your wedding.
Social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic places to get dreamy ideas for a beautiful wedding and reception. But one downside of this trend is that couples will often choose a wedding site based on what it looks like online as opposed to imagining the actual experience of guests attending the event. While a grain silo or a park may look spectacular when captured by a high-end wedding photographer, there can be realities of hosting these types of weddings that include compromising comfort and convenience. One of the great things about hosting your wedding at a golf club is that we’ve got the beautiful outdoor setting and all of the comforts and amenities that make attending the wedding enjoyable.
Why Burl Oaks is a Perfect Wedding Venue
At Burl Oaks Golf Club, our elite facilities play host to a variety of different events such as wedding ceremonies and receptions, rehearsal dinners, class reunions, retirement parties, and more. Our ballroom and other facilities can hold up to 160 people and will provide a beautiful backdrop for both your wedding and reception, or just your reception if you have other arrangements for the ceremony.
These are just a few of the reasons couples love booking their weddings at Burl Oaks:
- We’ve got plenty of room for your wedding, reception, and guests.
One of the best benefits of hosting your wedding at Burl Oaks Golf Club is the ample amount of space we have available.

- We host beautiful outdoor weddings.
For outdoor weddings, your wedding will take place in our garden area. This area is surrounded by large oak trees on our grassy knoll. It’s also close to the clubhouse, it’s easy for you and your wedding party, as well as your guests, to move to the reception area.
And unlike many outdoor venues, we’ve got you covered if Mother Nature decides to rain on your parade. When you choose to have your wedding at our facility, we will typically have it outside with a backup plan in case of inclement weather.
- We have all of the electronic equipment you will need for your wedding and reception on-site.
Do you plan to play a special video at your wedding reception or let your Uncle Larry serve as a wedding DJ? We’ve got everything you need to make that happen. If you wish to incorporate media into your wedding or reception, we can also give you access to the following:
