Personalized Santa Barbara Wedding Venues Tour

Having a wedding in southern California is the dream of so many couples.

But unless you are from the area and are intimately familiar with the venues, deciding where to host your wedding can be an impossibly difficult task.

Enter the answer to all of your decision-making conundrums:

Santa Barbara wedding venue tours.

Highly personalized and carefully curated, this is the perfect merging of wedding planning and a fun getaway.

And I don’t just cover Santa Barbara. I can plan tours anywhere your heart is set on getting married—from the varied wine regions of California to worldwide. With my many travel partners and extensive global connections, I make planning your destination wedding easy and fun.

Who is it for

My venue tour is for you if:

  • You know where you want to get married but don’t have time to sort through the extensive options that are available.

  • You want guidance and help from an experienced resource but aren’t quite ready to hire a planner yet.

  • You are interested in finding a unique venue that may not be known to the general public.

  • You just want to enjoy wedding planning and think this sounds like a lot of fun (and it is!).

How it Works

First, reach out and let me know where you are interested in hosting your wedding.

While I am local to the Santa Barbara area, I am familiar with the whole of California and many areas worldwide and can plan a tour for you anywhere. In fact, I love nothing more than introducing people to hidden little gems that they have never heard of…

I will collect all of the necessary information—aesthetic preferences, estimated guest count, preferred date or season, and investment to name a few.

We’ll schedule a date and I will get to work contacting venues, compiling information, and organizing what is going to be a fun and productive tour!

What It Includes

  • All of the discovery work regarding pricing, availability, maximum guest count, and more.

  • A thorough pro/con evaluation after the tour

  • Transportation

  • Overnight stay (for multi-day tours)

  • My expertise and guidance as a seasoned planner + the ability to brainstorm in-person at each venue.

1-Day Venue Tours

Our single-day tour is an excellent way to get personalized help from a local wedding planner to discover your ideal wedding venue.

These tours will cover one specific area—either in California or a location worldwide and include venues that meet all of your criteria.

We will finish our tour with a thorough pro/con evaluation, some design ideas for each venue, and, most definitely, a glass of wine.

Multi-Day Tours

Our multi-day venue tours include several locations, such as Santa Barbara county and San Luis Obispo or even Venice and Verona, just to name some examples.

Like the 1-day tour, I do all of the leg work in discovering availability, pricing, and other logistics.

This tour includes a wider reach of venues and overnight stays in a local boutique hotel.

At the conclusion, we will have a thorough review session complete with design ideas and, of course, drinks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you offer tours?  

I offer tours anywhere that has wedding venues! From Santa Barbara and California’s wine country to anywhere in the world, I firmly believe that the world is your playground. Let’s get out and explore.

How do you decide on the venues to show us?

I look at your criteria (pricing, guest count, wedding date, aesthetics, etc) and then start researching venues in your area. I’ll reach out to each individual venue to gather the necessary information and start creating a plan. When planning a tour outside of Southern California, I may reach out to one of my many local contacts if I need to get insider information. 

Can I request a venue to see?

Yes! If it falls within your criteria and is available for a tour, I’d love to show it to you.

What if you aren’t familiar with my wedding destination?

One of my practices is to be constantly networking and traveling in order to learn about different regions—exploring their cultures, venues, gastronomy and available experiences. I am constantly connecting with new people to allow for further resources for my couples.

So, in short, it's no problem.

Where do we stay?

Where we stay varies from location to location, but I can guarantee you this—it will be fun, it will be romantic, and it will be boujee.
