Insider Tips

  • Incorporate Custom Menus: Take advantage of the Lodge's customizable catering options to create a menu that reflects your taste and style, including farm-to-table options.

  • Explore the Park: Encourage your wedding party and/or all guests to arrive early and explore the beautiful Wakulla Springs State Park. They can rent bikes, take the Jungle Cruise glass bottom boat tour among manatees, swim in the springs (with year-round constant temperatures!), hike the trails, and more!

  • Accommodate Guests: Utilize the on-site accommodations to make it a convenient and memorable experience for your out-of-town guests.

  • Capture the History: Incorporate the venue's rich history into your wedding theme for a unique and memorable touch. Some of our favorite Tallahassee florists have created beautiful backdrops and centerpieces that complement the natural vibe of the Lodge at Wakulla Springs and its surrounding "old, natural Florida" aesthetic perfectly.

  • Visit the Soda Fountain: Treat your guests to nostalgic ice cream treats at the historic soda fountain during your cocktail hour. We'll provide the perfect backing soundtrack!
