City-by-City Guide: Georgia Wedding Hotels

From premier event planning to luxe bridal suites, here are some of the best hotels for your Georgia wedding.

Scenic Dinner

Host your rehearsal dinner or reception on one of the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta’s two private open-air terraces located in the heart of midtown. One terrace holds 25 to 50 people while the other accommodates up to 250, and both offer unparalleled views of the city. What’s more, the catering menu is extensive and mouthwatering. (404) 881-9898

Outdoor Elegance

Plan an intimate outdoor ceremony in a tranquil Japanese garden at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead. With gorgeous bonsai trees, Japanese sculptures, and a waterfall, the garden is sure to make for great photos. A bonus: The hotel has two ballrooms, so you can hold your reception there too. (404) 237-1234

Mod Reception

For a sleek and contemporary reception venue, turn to the ballroom at TWELVE Atlantic Station hotel in Atlanta, where the décor is decidedly modern. Its fitted hardwood floors, Venetian-style walls, and outdoor terrace are perfect for an urban wedding. (404) 961-1212

Group Accommodations

Look to the Sea Palms Golf & Tennis Resort on St. Simons Island for your wedding reception—the perfect place to accommodate all your out-of-towners. Guests can kick back and relax, rent bikes to explore the island, or play a round of golf on resort’s 27-hole course. (912) 638-3351

Great Perks

Lisa Milko, owner of Event Perfect, tipped us off to Barnsley Gardens Resort in Adairsville, a gorgeous property made up of cozy, welcoming cottages. Luxury comes standard here; every suite is outfitted with a wood-burning fireplace, a claw-foot tub, and a private porch with rocking chairs—there’s also a top-notch spa and a championship golf course on-site. (877) 773-2447

Romantic Suite

For a wedding night suite like none other, book a room at The Cloister at Sea Island . Every room comes with 24-hour butler service, deep Turkish stone bathtubs, and 500-thread-count Italian linens. And, if for some reason you decide to leave your room, they have complimentary Range Rovers available on a first-come, first-serve basis. (888) 732-4752

Star Service

Service is key at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel , which is located in the heart of Atlanta. Their social catering managers not only can help you plan a seamless wedding reception, they can also arrange for an afternoon tea with your bridesmaids or a martini night for him and his groomsmen. In the meantime, you can have the hotel staff take special care of your guests with extra amenities and services. (404) 659-0400

Perfect Locale

Overlooking the Savannah River, the River Street Inn is a great place for all your guests to gather. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon and homemade chocolates in the evening are nice perks, but the best part is that the inn is a short walk to all the Historic District’s shops, museums, river cruises, and restaurants. (912) 234-6400
