Megan was so helpful and made me so excited for our event by always being on top of everything. The wedding was perfect! Thank you Megan and all of the Cactus and Tropicals staff. I've recommended your venue to my friends, not they needed the recommendation after coming to my event and seeing how beautiful it was!

Cactus & Tropicals in Salt Lake City: While initially we thought this venue was too expensive for us, the value of the location actually made it one of the less expensive locations overall that we considered. The cost of venue rental included table and chairs for 100+ guests as well as free use of gorgeous in-house floral arrangements on each table. The venue itself was stunning with all of the live flowers inside and out. The sound system was included and we could just plug in our own wedding play list and avoid hiring a DJ. The option to self-cater is also available so we saved a great deal by not having to hire a caterer. (In hind sight while we saved money on food, we wish we would have opted to hire out the food so we could have been less stressed leading up to our big day.) But overall the value of this venue was great! Megan, the wedding coordinator, was happy to work with us to make sure all the details were correct. As a same-sex couple, we felt very welcomed at Cactus & Tropicals and know our friends in a similar relationship would benefit from booking their event at this location.

I just recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Cactus and Tropicals location in Draper. We could not have been happier with the way the evening went. The venue is beautiful and we were able to have our ceremony during a crazy thunderstorm and everything still came out amazing! Vanessa and her assistant Zach were great, and always pleasant and accomodating. We were especially pleased that we could choose our own vendors at this location, instead of having to choose from a handful of options. They do provide plenty of vendor recommendations, and the ones I used were really great. I would suggest using their linen recommendation, as it made everything so easy. I would say that you can't go wrong planning to have a wedding or reception at Cactus and Tropicals.

Cactus and Tropicals Draper was perfect for our daughters wedding and reception and I'll tell you why. It's gorgeous. There is no preparation needed. Go with their recommended linen supplier that knows their table sizes. Voila. (I bought my own thinking it was a deal and the day of the event I called up and rented them. It took four hours the week before to iron linens for another wedding. I was not about to do that again). You have plants galore, lights everywhere, views of the mountains and sunset, large indoor and outdoor venue . No worries if it rains. You can choose your own caterer or self cater ( we loved Veronica's Cuisine) and choose your own bartender with full or partial service (they supply the alcohol or you bring your own as long as your bartender is licensed and insured). Seriously, if I had the reception anywhere else it would have cost me more time, money and stress buying plants, stringing lights, decorating tables, arranging, etc. At C&T Draper it was all done for us and ready to go! We got a photo booth which is not necessary but made for a fun sign in table and memory book.
Thank you for everything Vanessa and Zach!

Cactus and Tropicals was a perfect venue for my reception! The space is beautiful! Also, they allow you to use their flowers for center pieces and things like that. Virtually no decorations necessary, making it really affordable! They also allow you to use whatever venders you want.

Beautiful plants, beautiful scenery, no extra decoration necessary, indoor and outdoors- It was so perfect! I had my reception here and I would do it again. The staff were very accommodating and set up everything. I could use whatever other vendors I wanted, which was so nice. I was so grateful they didn't force me to pick from certain vendors, I could do whatever I wanted. The atmosphere there was so intimate, and I think it made everyone feel welcome and cozy. We had mellow jazz music playing through their stereo system throughout the greenhouse, and it added just the final touch on everything. The numerous water fountains and plants make it feel like you are outside when you really aren't. The night of my reception t actually rained, but it was actually sooooo cool!!! The sound of the rain hitting the roof was magical! I felt so taken care of, and everyone there answers my questions perfectly and helped me de-stress and not worry about a thing. I have nothing negative to add whatsoever :)
