This venue was perfect for us and the office staff were extremely accommodating! We wanted a venue where we could host our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception inside the air conditioning since we got married in June. The staff at the Tampa Garden Club worked well with our planner, caterer, photographer and other vendors to ensure that the space was decorated to perfection and comfortably cool by our ceremony time. There's free parking for your guests and plenty of space inside and out for people to enjoy the beautiful views of Tampa Bay. It's conveniently located on Bayshore so it wasn't far at all for our guests staying in downtown Tampa and a short trip for our family coming in from Pinellas and Hillsborough. There's a full, good sized kitchen for the caterer and a stage for a band or dj. I'm so happy we went with this venue, it was perfect for our summer wedding!

Britt, the manager was awesome. She was so helpful and patient with me. I was there every weekend measuring and taking pictures and she just laughed and helped me count. I had an amazing experience with her, even afterwards. The venue was gorgeous. The ceremony was outside and all of my guests loved it. It was very convenient for my out-of-town family to just walk right from the garden to the cocktail hour and from the cocktail hour to the reception. No driving :)

Britt was such a wonderful person to work with. She helped us with our scheduling issues early on and helped us book the perfect date. The Tampa Garden Club is such a beautiful blank slate that you can really dress up for any style. The view of Bayshore and the natural light that floods in makes the venue a great spot for a daytime wedding.

We are delighted that we chose this venue for our big day! It is so beautiful in so many ways and has so many gorgeous elements. Planning was a breeze with Britt coordinating everything for the venue. She was an absolute joy to work with and was extremely helpful every step of the way. We planned our entire wedding from out of state, so her flexibility and understanding meant so much to us.It really felt like she cared about our wedding and it meant so much for us to work with someone like her and have a venue like the Tampa Garden Club.

The Tampa Garden Club is a beautiful location for a Tampa wedding. The location is amazing with beautiful views of the bay and adjacent gardens. The garden club is a perfect place for those individuals wanting a blank slate. You are able to pick all of your own vendors including caterer and bar service. You can make the main room as dolled up or as simple as you want. My husband and I chose not to spend too much on decorating the walls, ceiling and whatnot and the space still looked amazing. The venue is a great place to have a large wedding. There are plenty of areas where guests can mingle and enjoy the wonderful views the venue has to offer. Another nice thing about the garden club is the FREE parking. There are plenty of spots to accommodate even large weddings with room to spare. Britt is the coordinator for the venue and she is amazing. She responds quickly to your emails/phone calls and is very easy to work with. My husband and I highly recommend this venue!!!

Amazing venue! It was exactly what we were looking for in a location for our ceremony and reception. The garden was beautiful, the view over the bay is breathtaking.

Ceremony: This place was perfect! I loved being able to walk through the guests sitting in the white folding chairs to my husband-to-be in a peaceful garden! What I loved about it was that we were able to have our reception and ceremony at the same place, and that also we were able to set up the inside in case it rained for the reception. It did not rain, and we were able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony in front of all our friends and family. This is also a perfect setting for wedding pictures. Our guests were able to snack and socialize in a beautiful area while we took photos. Reception: The place is set up so that you can have the reception outside, and then the reception inside or outside. We decided to have an indoor reception, just in case of weather. The event manager had great suggestions on how the room could be set up, and then also made great suggestions of having different stations outside before the meal so that people could sit and wander around. This was one of the best staffs and groups that I have ever worked with. They were extremely professional and really well-organized, and it's obvious that they love organizing weddings. It an amazing place for to have a wedding, and I'm so glad that our memories will be here.

The location and everything about the venue is gorgeous and we fell in love upon seeing it. One of the staff members was great as we stopped by one day passing by, however he was not knowledgeable of all the details so he provided us with the managers information. The manager Wanda was terrible. After messaging almost every venue on WeddingWire, I was ready to book this venue as it allowed outside catering. However, it seemed as if she was neither welcoming nor appreciating the fact we were interested in the venue. She took a day or two to answer emails and seemed to have an attitude when inquiring about what fees were involved in the rental. Was not accommodating to my request to meet with her to sign the contract and tried to have me meet with other staff which I had already met with and didn't know the details and apparently couldn't book the venue for us either. She offered me a Saturday meet, then she changed her mind and said no let's do Sunday. Once I accept, now she gave the appointment to someone else and was offering a different appointment which was 2 weeks away. This is completely unacceptable from a venue with such high pricing or any venue which deals with such important events. In the end, we went with a location which was almost all inclusive and more economic but most importantly the manager was a pleasure to work with and definitely loved what she did as opposed to Wanda.
