Q&A with Tiffany Grummer of Valencia Country Club
How can couples stretch their bridal budget while still creating a unique event?
One of the things I always tell my brides is this - splurge where it counts and get the most out of your venue. What I mean is, find out what makes your reception location special and play that up because it's free! Then spend the budget you would have otherwise invested there on something that really sets your event apart. For example, at Valencia Country Club, we have gorgeous amenities that make your evening event's ambience so incredibly magical, and we don't charge anything for you to use them. For example, our linens are gorgeous - and included. Choose a venue where rentals can be avoided, so you can invest in more flowers, special flavors, the dress you really love!

How do you make a "country club" wedding distinctive?
First, please come in and check out our portfolios of pictures of events at our Club! You will be shocked at the variety. Valencia Country Club's traditional, well-appointed ambience is classic and understated, which allows for couples to really get creative with the details. We've had stunning rustic weddings, cultural weddings, modern-aesthetic receptions and so many other themes and styles on this property, and every one of them blends seamlessly. We can sit down and I'll show you! You'll also see all the jaw-dropping frame-worthy shots of newly-married couples on our lake. Lake photo access is included in our bridal packages.

What's the biggest trend right now?
Valencia Country Club's stunning property and greens just beg for outdoor celebrations this time of year, so we're seeing a lot of rustic receptions that take advantage of the luxurious grounds. The pictures are jaw dropping!

Bridal Hair is a Beautiful Balance
Bridal hair design is an involved process. You need a skilled stylist who can perform consistently and quickly; who can create a style with staying power and who can customize a look to take best advantage of your facial and hair characteristics. What style to choose? The most blissful balance is often one that allows for fluidity and offers a sense of airiness, sexiness and natural beauty. At the same time, updos show off the delicate lines of your neck and shoulders and will require much less maintenance during your big day. That's why top 2017 trends are "deconstructed updos," styles that allow for loose curls and plenty of texture and dimension while staying put.

Say "I Do" at an Award-Winning Bridal Venue

Couples shouldn't Sour on Themes
Having an overarching theme or conceptual design plan is anything but limiting when you recognize how much better consistent elements can make your Big Day. Just like branding a business, your wedding's "brand" should have consistent colors, finishes and design elements. Our lips pucker - in a good way! - when we gaze upon these citrusy invites that coordinate with the table decor.
