Planning the perfect Sacramento wedding doesn’t need to just be some far off dream or fantasy.
If you play your cards right and do your research, there’s no reason you cant put together your ideal destination wedding in Sacramento. A city wedding presents unique challenges to the wedding planner, but also affords unique opportunities because of weather, local culture, and regional cuisine options that are sure to make your wedding reception a memorable experience.
One of the things to keep in mind when you are in the process of preparing for your Sacramento wedding is food. Food culture is one of the areas in which the uniqueness of the city really shines. Not only are there staples that are traditional and well loved – like the best crab cakes and the best key lime pie in the whole state of California – but some of the local establishments are popularizing what they call the “new city cuisine.” This is a way of incorporating more influences from California’s diverse population into the dishes. Much of Sacramento is steeped in its rich history, and new urban cuisine is a way of celebrating the presence while building towards the future.
However, this isn’t the only area of Sacramento culture that is reaching towards the modern age. Entertainment has also changed dramatically in recent years. While the music scene in California has always been rich in musical variety, the recent years and shifts in the cultural makeup of the country have had very clear influences on the local musician pool. Influences on solo musicians, bands and DJ’s are apparent.
This means two things: one, the local talent pool is more flexible than you’d think, and a band that plays people music in bars at night might be very well capable of performing a variety of other styles as well. Second, it means there is also a large community of people who discuss the kinds of music that they like online.
Much like restaurant review websites, Urban Spoon being an example, music critics, connoisseurs and customers are all more than willing to talk about their experiences with various performers. This can help you figure out which ones are worth investigating further. Just because a bands website indicates they can play the kind of music you are interested in does not mean they are easy to work with or professionally inclined.
As with anything else, a little bit of research goes a long way. Sacramento, CA is a special place. Its no wonder so many people choose to host their urban weddings and wedding receptions here. Many of the businesses in the area have had experience in the business one way or another. Consider Sacramento for your next big event.
