Dress fitting? Check. Guest list? Check. Finding time to relax? Probably not high on your list of wedding planning priorities.

But nailing down the nitty-gritty details of your nuptials doesn’t have to be so stressful, especially when your reception venue comes with the built-in amenities at Springfield Country Club.

Here are a few ways to make the most of your wedding weekend, both before and after your walk down the aisle.

Take a spa day.

Before the big day, you and your partner can indulge in a custom couple’s massage or opt for an exfoliating facial to give you an extra glow. Spa days are also a great way to get in some quality time with your wedding party leading up to the main event. With custom packages and their one-of-a-kind Turkish Bath experience, Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Dry Bar at Springfield Country Club is an ideal spot for pre-wedding pampering. Plus they have top-notch day-of services for hair, nails and makeup.

Tee up.  

A peaceful and fun time out in a natural relaxing environment is sure to help relieve any pre-wedding stress. Springfield Country Club’s 18-hole public course offers a beautifully manicured 6,018-yard, par-70 course that’s both challenging for more experienced players yet welcoming to novice golfers. Since it is a public course, there are no hassles getting a tee time, so get in a round of golf with your partner or wedding party before the big day. Don’t forget to swing by the clubhouse for drinks and bite to eat.

Stay in style.

Arranging for overnight accommodations at one location is the easiest way to keep the wedding entourage, immediate family and out-of-towners in one place. The 101-room Courtyard Marriott hotel located just steps from the Springfield Country Club features comfortable yet spacious suites, free high-speed Wi-Fi, a fitness center, indoor pool and whirlpool. You can also upgrade to one of nine luxury suites with available group rates and room blocks. (Bonus: If you book your reception at Springfield Country Club, the newlyweds receive a complimentary overnight stay in a standard room the night of the wedding!)

Arrange an after-party.

It’s no wonder why after-parties are growing in popularity. Who really wants the party to end? When booking your wedding venue, make sure to think about your after-party options. At Springfield Country Club, after-parties are held onsite at Tavola Restaurant + Bar, so all wedding guests can simply walk over after the reception – no shuttles or Uber rides needed. The outdoor bar and patio overlook the golf course and are surrounded by palm trees and ambient lighting with multiple fire pits and lounge areas that comfortably accommodate large groups. You can keep cool on humid summer nights with a misting system, or stay cozy on chilly nights with heat lamps. Sip on craft cocktails or pass around plates of inventive appetizers; the extensive menu has something for everyone. Make Tavola a multi-purpose resource by booking your rehearsal dinner or planning a post-wedding brunch.

And don’t forget the main attraction.

Of course, the ceremony and reception are the biggest parts of the planning process. For indoor ceremonies, Springfield Country Club’s intimate banquet rooms serve as “classic canvases” to accommodate all styles and décor. If you plan on saying your vows in the sunshine, the gated outdoor gazebo is fit for a fairytale ceremony. For your reception, the gorgeous Grand and Golf View Ballrooms set the scene for exquisite culinary creations with sit-down, buffet-style or stationed dinners and custom cakes from Termini Brothers Bakery, hot coffee and tea service, plus additional add-on dessert options. The ballrooms also offer built-in dance floors, so you and your guests can groove all night.

Your wedding doesn’t start and end with “I do.” Plan a fun-filled weekend packed with things to do to enhance the overall experience. Now you can enjoy every second of the most momentous occasion of your life.
