Although wedding planning is exciting, it can be overwhelming for the soon-to-be-married couple's family and friends in addition to the actual couple themselves. If you're the person who has been trusted with the responsibility of selecting the perfect wedding or bridal shower venue in Atlanta, Georgia, that will leave guests feeling peachy keen and ready for the big day, you are in the right spot.

When reviewing bridal shower locations in Atlanta, Georgia, it is important to consider the month you're planning on hosting the shower and what the weather will be like. It is best practice to ensure the venue you choose will keep everyone most comfortable while celebrating. Even though Atlanta is known for its relatively warm climate year-round, it does get chilly during the winter. We recommend indoor or hybrid venues so the to-be-wed and guests can enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, but have the option to go inside if the temperature drops or the sun becomes overbearing.

Whether you're looking to throw a bridal luncheon, bridal shower brunch or the like, Atlanta is home to several restaurants and other venues perfect for celebrating. You can check out The Knot Marketplace for a complete list of great wedding and bridal shower locations in Atlanta. From Irish pubs to breweries, we've got you covered.
