Your Engaged. Now what?
Congratulations on your engagement! Now, “When is your wedding?” “Where is the reception?” “Where is the ceremony?” “Where will guests stay?” These are just some of the questions that friends and family ask immediately after you get engaged because they are so excited to celebrate with you!
Wouldn’t it be an amazing feeling to respond to those questions with just one answer? “My entire wedding is all in one location.” The Hilton Garden Inn South or the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown.
Let’s face it – we live in South Dakota which means we have unpredictable weather year round. This makes it trickier to plan outdoor ceremonies. Plus many couples today are choosing to have a less traditional style wedding to better reflect their personalities. This means couples are looking for an alternative to the traditional church ceremony.
Our creative event managers at both our Hilton Garden Inn locations are fantastic at tailoring your entire day to fit your every need and that includes your ceremony too! If you are planning a large party, we can host the ceremony and reception all in the same banquet room. Or if you are looking at having a more intimate gathering, we can host the ceremony and reception in two separate banquet rooms. At both Hilton Garden Inn locations, we have access to staging, arches, pillars and whatever other accents make your ceremony come to life.
The benefits of having your wedding day all inclusive:
Eliminates the stress of working with multiple locations. It’s a full time job planning a wedding. Working with multiple locations means different deadlines, different rules and other details to remember.
Putting together invitations are a breeze! You won’t need to include a different insert for ceremony, reception or hotel accommodations because it will all be at the same location.
Easy travel and convenience for your guests. This is especially true for out-of-town guests. Rather than hoping GPS will direct them to the right locations, your guests can check in to their hotel room, get ready and just pop down the elevator to the ceremony and reception.
Save money. Hosting your entire wedding at one location eliminates extra expense. Your photographer does not need to travel from place to place. They can capture photos straight from the ceremony to reception. Check with your DJ about running sound for your ceremony and reception. You can use the same decorations for both the ceremony and reception.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen. Our event managers will be glad to make arrangements for you and your wedding party to get ready in one of our spacious suites. Some brides even love getting to spend the night before the big day with their bridesmaids so they can wake up and start doing hair and make-up.
Come check us out at both our Hilton Garden Inn Sioux Falls South and Hilton Garden Inn Downtown for an all-inclusive beautiful wedding experience right here in Sioux Falls.
