Gilbert, Arizona appears on all the best places in America lists over and over. It’s also a great place to have a rustic wedding. You can be close to everything yet feel like you’re far enough away to enjoy the moment. The moment two become one.
What exactly does “rustic” mean? As a style, it’s defined as a design emphasizing on rugged, natural beauty. It embraces nature-inspired textures, simple and earthy colors, and ultimately an unpretentious, organic warmth. It’s nice without being too fancy; elegant yet practical.
One of the best rustic wedding venues in East Valley is located near the heart of historic downtown Gilbert. It’s The Cottage Wedding Venue, and it’s one of the area’s newest gathering places filled with charm and cozy backyard ambiance.
The Cottage Wedding Venue is just north of Warner on the east side of Gilbert Road. Less than a mile north is some of the most diverse and eclectic eateries you can imagine from brewpubs to country barbecue to liquid nitrogen ice cream. The same distance in every other direction yields dozens of shops and stores carrying whatever you might need at the last minute.
Are you looking for an all-inclusive setting to celebrate the big day? The Cottage Wedding Venue has you covered! And “big day” can mean any big day - not just weddings. From baby showers to corporate networking events, this is a great location with terrific amenities.
Weekly Open House - Wednesdays 4:00 - 7:00 PM
Whatever event your planning, it’s always best to actually see the location for yourself. Every week you can tour the facilities, take pictures, measurements, see the layout of the building and walk the quiet outdoors. Meet the charming staff and get all your questions answered.
Rustic Wedding Specials
Did you know you could save as much as a thousand dollars on your wedding just by changing a day or two? Instead of a Sunday, would a Thursday work just as well? If you’re flexible with your days, consider a weekday wedding instead of a weekend wedding. At the time of this writing, one of the featured specials is a 5-Hour Week Day Wedding Package that includes everything with the venue plus a full-service staff, bartender, DJ, appetizers, dinner buffet and much more for less than $6,000.
