We could not have asked for a more perfect place for us to get married! It is absolutely beautiful with wonderful event coordinators. Highly professional, flexible, helpful, and understanding. What more can you ask for?!
While my now husband and I had a difficult time finding a venue, we are hoping to make your life much easier than ours. Put the Club at Garden Ridge as a priority and a must see and you will find that very few will be able to compare. Speak with their staff and you’ll be able to cut your search for a venue short, as they are second to none. The venue had every amenity expected and then some. The Venue itself is beautiful and the ceremony area picturesque. They also have awesome bridal and groom suites that were well kept and a great place to prep and relax prior to your “big moment.” Kristi and Anna were excellent. They were both accommodating, friendly, and exceptional to work with making sure “your night” will be a memorable one. We are definitely pleased with our choice and you will be as well.
Kristi was amazing. The venue was exactly what we were looking for. Elegant country. We just got married 10-01-16 and it was the single most complimented part of our wedding (how beautiful the venue was all around the outside area and the cocktail hour and the gorgeous ballroom.) The savings we made from not having to buy as much décor since it was so naturally beautiful was beyond me. It saved us thousands of dollars! What an amazing place to have had our dream wedding and just minutes away from our home in San Antonio. So close to everything! We had a great time and don't think it would have been as picture perfect without this wonderful venue and staff. Thank y'all so much!
Facility was great, staff was very friendly and helpful and accommodating. The facility is very well maintained. The Gazebo for the ceremony was gorgeous. The reception space was very comfortable for the 150 guests; a modern rustic theme was perfect for our fall wedding.
Beautiful venue, rude/closed-minded staff
Such a nice venue and very affordable! Our friends and family loved the ballroom. Kristi was also very helpful and was willing to give suggestions to ensure our wedding went smoothly. The only negative thing about the venue is the children playing in the pool while my fiancé and I did our first look. They close the venue to the public an hour before the ceremony so if you choose to do a first look expect to hear and see families enjoying the indoor pool.
The Club at Garden Ridge was the perfect setting for capturing lifetime memories of a beautiful wedding for our daughter and son-in-law on September 16, 2017. When we first visited, we were immediately captivated with the venue. Yes, we did visit other venues, but no others compared to the amenities offered at the Club. Working with Kristi, the Club’s Weddings and Events Manager, from the onset was pleasurable; guidance provided, always responsive, a consummate professional. The Club’s day-of staff were on top of it, the venue was set-up as planned and was exactly as we had envisioned. It was absolutely stunning! Holly was attentive to details, met our needs and stayed with us to the end of the evening, helping us gather our belongings and depart on time. Thank you to a fabulous team!! The venue’s accommodations were inviting, relaxing and beautifully furnished; the Bridal Suite, Groom’s Man Cave and Family Lounge large and private, ideal for getting ready. The Gazebo on the lake, with the water fountain in the background, surrounded by lush landscaped grounds was the picture-perfect backdrop for a heavenly Wedding Ceremony officiated by Pastor Dale! The spacious ballroom was elegantly staged for an enchanting evening of celebration; highlighting delectable foods, drinks and a fun-filled dance floor. Our family and friends are still raving about it! We sincerely thank all of you that had a hand in making it happen!

Recently I attended my cousins wedding at the Club at Garden Ridge. The setting was beautiful and the rustic feel of the venue was very inviting. There were even free range deer on the drive in. The ceremony was performed in a large gazebo in front of a lake with a fountain in the background. Prior to the wedding the Bridal party was treated to furnished suites to relax and get ready in. The reception was held in the ballroom that was big enough to hold our large crazy family. The night went off without a hitch thanks to Colleen who works for the venue who worked tirelessly to meet everyone's needs. Great experience and great location.
Our wedding day was amazing!! The grounds made for beautiful photos. I especially enjoyed the bridal suite. My girls and I could relax and get ready. It's a stunning area. The guys took advantage of the indoor basketball court in the adjoining fitness center before it was time to get down to business!! Kristi is awesome. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She and her staff go out of their way to make sure everything goes smoothly. Thank you again!
As a Certified Wedding Coordinator, I cannot speak highly enough of this venue and it's staff! Kristi is a dream to work with and the property is so well maintained. Make it a priority to visit this venue, meet Kristi and you will fall in love!
I highly recommend this venue. We had my daughters ceremony and reception here. The grounds are beautiful with many different areas for pictures. We had use of the club with great bride and groom rooms as well as the reception hall. We had over 200 guests and we had plenty of room for tables and dancing. The cost was very reasonable and nicer than some of the other venues at twice the price. Kristi was a pleasure to work with and was extremely accommodating.. She had a great list of vendors that we used and we were very pleased with the results. Heather Gaftke was our wedding coordinator and she did a wonderful job. She is extremely organized and her follow-up was excellent. She made sure everything went smoothly . I highly recommend "TheClub at Garden Ridge", Kristi and Heather. Thank you ladies for making my daughters wedding perfect!
This past weekend we had our amazing wedding Celebration. the Club at Garden Ridge helped us through every step of our day. Christie helped walk us through each phase of the day and the weeks leading up to our big day. we were connected online by All seated, which helped me plan every detail, with ease wherever I was. The venue was beautiful and not only fit our perfect day, but would be the perfect place for any celebration.
We recently celebrated an anniversary at the club and can't thank them enough for an excellent experience. Not only was it a beautiful venue, but we enjoyed the added blessing of a great event coordinator in Kristi DeBaun. Kristi was fantastic from beginning to end, accommodating and patient and even giving good suggestions to make the event better. She is VERY nice and ensured that our event was a success. I would highly recommend this venue.
We are so happy that we picked The Club at Garden Ridge as our wedding venue! We received so many compliments about the venue from our guests. Kristi was available to answer our questions and provide her opinions throughout the planning process. The day-of staff were amazing! We were granted access to all areas (as promised) at 9am. The Bridal Lounge and Grooms Cave were awesome. Someone even took the time to stock beverages for us prior to our arrival in bride/groom suites. The clubhouse allowed my family a place to hang out and eat throughout the day while everyone was helping out with wedding set up. A lot of places don't have a dedicated clubhouse for bride, groom, and their entourage as well. They asked us several times if we needed anything and told us if they would be away at any times. The ballroom still smells new, and it's so beautiful you hardly need any extra decor. Just be prepared to be able to find your own vendors or hire a planner to help coordinate this for you because the pricing only includes the venue rental. All in all, so very pleased with everything the venue had to offer. Beautiful spot. Great staff. Thank you Club af Garden Ridge!
I searched many venues in my area and as soon as I saw this place, it took my breath away. It was everything I dreamed of. The staff is awesome and very helpful. Kristi was a very big help she had ideas and recommendations that I loved. Because of this beautiful venue and wonderful staff my event was out of this world. My family and friends are still wowed by this place as I am. Everything about The Club At Garden Ridge is Top Notch all the way
The Club at Garden Ridge is the perfect venue. The new reception hall is perfect - the beautiful white rock and chandeliers, to the perfectly designed stage area for the DJ and the built in bar for bartenders. The hall has everything you could need. The outside ceremony gazebo is just as wonderful. As a wedding vendor, we work with tons of different vendors and Kristi and her staff at The Club at Garden Ridge were all a joy to work with and so very helpful! I would recommend this venue to any bride!
This was the second place we looked at for venues and I instantly fell in love. I loved the area and the scenery. Everyone in my family raved about how beautiful the place was and I will forever remember it. I highly recommend them for anyone's wedding, you will not be disappointed!!
The whole experience was worth it! Leading up to the wedding I always felt at ease! If I had a question about any little thing all I had to do was email and got a response back very quickly! The venue is beautiful and very well priced!
Absolutely beautiful venue. Well staffed, organized and exactly what we hoped for. My sons wedding was fabulous

My entire experience with The Club at Garden Ridge was incredible. My family had the chance to tour the venue with Kristi, the Club's Wedding & Events Manager, and had a great first impression. Krisit's attentiveness to me as a bride was beyond anything I could have hoped for. You would never know that she is planning multiple events as she was always readily available to me, and made friendly suggestions throughout planning that made my wedding a dream. She was trustworthy, friendly, and dependable. The venue itself is magical. The amenities provided make for a dream venue - from the bride and groom suite to the architecture inside the ballroom to the lush landscaping. My guests had so many compliments on the place we chose to marry, and I am extremely grateful for the experience we were able to share!
Kristie and the staff at [email protected] were beyond great to work with. Very professional, but better than that just plain nice. The venue is just gorgeous and our caterer was very impressed with kitchen facilities. So nice to have all the A/V capabilities which allowed our slideshow and music to go off without a hitch. Can't wait until next year's banquet! We WILL be back!
Everything went perfectly. From the setup, to the weather. I could t have asked for a better day! Kristi was very accommodating and provided everything I asked for! Margarita Madness was the perfect bartenders, mad mad Photobooth was awesome...and absolutely delicious was absolutely divine! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was and how wonderful everything was even 2 days later! I totally recommend this beautiful venue.
