Greensboro Wedding Planning: City Highlights
With magnificent shopping opportunities, a rich and diverse arts community, and a variety of attractions, Greensboro has something to offer every bride. Four Seasons Town Centre, Friendly Center, and the Shops at Friendly Center are great destinations for brides. National retailers, as well as local boutiques and gift shops, provide inspiration for wedding favors, jewelry, decorations, and bridal attire. There are also a number of fine restaurants to offer options for your reception menu.
Greensboro’s assortment of theaters, music companies, art galleries, parks, and museums often offer facility rentals for weddings and receptions. These notable attractions are also great places to recommend to your out-of-town guests – the Greensboro Children’s Museum is a must for guests with kids! One of the nation’s most popular water parks, Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Point, is another preferred destination – perfect for guests who arrive a day or two before the big day.
Greensboro Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations
Hot summer days and pleasant nights provide excellent temperatures for outdoor weddings in Greensboro. Spring and summer thunderstorms are quite frequent and are sometimes severe enough to produce tornados. Be sure your outdoor venue has a backup available for inclement weather. Tent rentals are another option to protect your celebration from the wind and rain.
