If you’re looking for an affordable option for your ranch wedding, take it from the experts at Southfork Ranch.  

All-inclusive venue. When looking for a venue that fits your budget, most planners will suggest you find an all-inclusive venue. This usually means that not only is your venue checked off the list, but also catering, decorations, music and many other things as well. Venues that have an on-site kitchen are ideal because you can rest assured knowing you won’t have to pay an extra delivery fee. Sometimes when you piece together a la carte selections, it can really add up.


Day-of coordinators. Another advantage of a one-stop-shop venue is that a wedding planner is usually provided to you and included in the price. This will save you money because that’s one less person you have to hire. It will also save you some stress because the coordinator will take care of any last-minute snafus that come up on the day of your wedding.


Plenty of free parking. A venue that has a ton of space for guests to park for free is a definite yes in our wedding planning book. Having to hire a valet service is a buzz kill on your budget. If you’re stuck between two venues, consider the parking situation to help make the decision easier.


Picturesque setting. When planning a ranch wedding, you don’t have to go big with the décor. A venue with a picturesque setting is ideal for saving money on decorations. Many venues will already have ranch-style vignettes set up for photos. A cute barn and a gorgeous tree-lined pathway are all you really need to make a statement at your ranch wedding.
