Nebraska is a great place to get married, whether you are a Nebraskan or a newcomer. Finding a venue is the first step in planning your Nebraska wedding. There are many options available, including Omaha and Lincoln venues. You should also research travel information and accommodations for guests who are from out of town.
It is essential that you establish a budget when planning a Nebraska wedding or researching Omaha venues. Your wedding venue will be the largest expense. In Omaha, it costs an average of $5,000. Catering is another major expense that can cost you around $4,000.
How to get there and how to get around
Nebraska wedding: Hosting guests from out of town? Although your guests will need to arrange their own travel and accommodation, it is a nice gesture to help them do as much research as they can to make the process as easy as possible. Eppley Airfield is the largest airport in Nebraska, and it’s located three miles northeast from Downtown Omaha. Eppley Airport is served by seven airlines and receives direct flights to it from approximately 25 cities. You can also fly your guests to Lincoln Airport or Central Nebraska Regional Airport on Grand Island.
It’s especially important to consider the weather conditions during your outdoor wedding. Nebraska is well-known for its hot, humid summers and cold winters. It also has thunderstorms and even tornadoes! In the spring. Although fall may be the best season, it is still possible for storms to occur. We recommend that you have an indoor option in case of inclement conditions if you plan to hold part of or all your wedding outside.
