Tampa Garden Club
The Tampa Garden Club provided a very flexible and beautiful venue for decorating! They also have a nice outdoor area.
Sandra the coordinator was fantastic! Everyone was complimenting the food.
The Tampa Garden Club is the perfect venue for a Florida wedding. With amazing views of beautiful Bayshore Blvd. and gorgeous flowers everywhere it is a romantic paridise. The team at Ideal Design Events did such an amazing job decorating the venue! We had the perfect day!
Beautiful view but it is a large investment. The Garden Club has many restrictions, which does limit what a bride can do, i.e. lighting. Also, the club only allows 4 hours for set up and 1 hour for break down causing some sense of "rush" for vendors.
I'll start by saying that the view at this place is awesome and I LOVED having my reception there. That being said, the rental fee on top of the per person fees that they charge the food and liquor vendors is a little much. Something just doesn't seem right about double paying for things. If the per person fee is for the caterers use of the ice machine, electricity, water, etc... what is the rental fee for then? Also, my husband and I weren't informed of these separate fees prior to signing the contract as this is a "Caterer's Contract"... but I don't know a caterer on Earth that will foot this bill on their own. It just would have been nice to learn everything up front rather than finding out later and feeling like we got duped.
The venue was beautiful. It was a blank canvas and allowed for a lot of creativity on a realistic budget. The management was a bit disorganized but I would still choose the venue if I had to do it all over again. I recommend this venue for any special occasion.
The Tampa Garden Club was perfect for our wedding! We had stunning views of the bay and were able to take pictures in the garden and on Bayshore. The venue is perfect for all size weddings and I would recommend it for any party or wedding!
The garden is absoultly breathtaking. I do think it is a little overpriced.
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.
we had our daughters wedding here. It was very nice but I really think it wasn't worth the money. everyone that works there are very nice and easy to work with but I think if I had to do it over again I would have had her wedding in a hotel or a Destination wedding for her.
The Tampa Bay Garden Club is a gorgeous place to hold a wedding. The picturesque gardens make for great photos to cherish forever and the Ballroom is just as gorgeous! This truly is a great venue!
The Tampa Garden Club is a lovely setting for outdoor weddings and gatherings.
