Santa Ana Wedding Guide


Santa Ana Wedding

The county seat of Orange County and the 4th most densely populated city in the nation, Santa Ana is rich in culture, history, and magnificent mission style and art-deco architecture.  Within thirty minutes of gorgeous California beaches, outstanding shopping, and the Disneyland theme park, Santa Ana is a terrific central location for a beautiful Southern California wedding.

Santa Ana Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations

A year-round Mediterranean climate offers gorgeous weather for weddings and makes the Santa Ana area a popular choice for destination brides as well.  A wedding in the summer enjoys breezy, sunny days with temperatures in the 80’s.  A chance of rain is unlikely during this season, making it an ideal time for outdoor weddings. 

Winter months are just as lovely, seeing temperatures in the 70’s during the day.  If you’re planning an outdoor wedding between November and March, keep an eye on the weather forecast because these are the rainiest months of the year in Santa Ana. 


Santa Ana Wedding Planning: City Highlights

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Historic Downtown District of Santa Ana is terrific inspiration for your upcoming wedding.  Besides a number of culturally enriched venue options, you’ll also find a variety of retailers and vendors that can assist with your wedding needs in the Fiesta Marketplace. 


Unique Santa Ana Wedding Ideas

As seen on “The Bachelor”, Newport Coast White Dove Release adds an elegant touch to your wedding celebration.  Serving Santa Ana and the surrounding Los Angeles and Orange County communities, 14 to 100 beautiful white doves can be released from a charming wicker basket at your ceremony.  Prices start at $300, or choose a biodegradable balloon release in colors that coordinate with your wedding ($50 to $160).


Santa Ana Wedding Resources

Orange County and nearby Los Angeles are home to some of the world’s trendiest jewelers, dressmakers, chefs, and bakers.  Be on the lookout for designer trunk shows, food and cake tastings, and bridal fairs that frequently occur in the area.  These events will keep you up to date on the latest styles, colors, and fashions for bridal wear, catering choices, and other elements of your Santa Ana wedding.
