Best Time to Schedule a Wedding

Garden weddings may be scheduled any day from June until September!  These months coincide with peak flower bloom.   The average date of the first heavy fall frost is around the middle of October, but can be highly variable. If you want to have your wedding outside of these dates, please contact us to see if we can accommodate you.

Reservations

You may reserve the garden up to one year before your wedding. Summer weekends tend to book quickly.

At this time, Dogwood Gardens does not have any permanent structures. However, there are areas where tents may be erected for such use. We also recommend booking the Dogwood Springs Guest House with your event. If we can accommodate you at the Guest House, you will get a discount on your wedding package! Let us know so that it can be reserved.
