Choosing a wedding venue – one of the most difficult decisions you will make during the planning of your big day. There are so many choices to make for your wedding, from the type of food you will serve, the number of guests you will invite, not to mention the wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and outfits for the rest of the bridal party. But somehow, even if you have got all of the above sorted, it just won’t sit right if your wedding isn’t hosted at the right venue.
By this point you are probably fed up with looking through wedding venue after venue, trying to imagine the main hall filled with your guests, picturing the perfect lighting for your first dance and wondering where you would present your wedding cake. But before throwing in the towel on finding the perfect venue, giving up all together and deciding to host the wedding at your local bingo house and be done with the stress, why not consider taking a peek at one last venue? I promise, it will be worth it.
When thinking about the Hippodrome Theater in Gainesville Florida, some of the first things that probably come to mind are the spectacular Hippodrome Theater plays, their movie theater and the excitement of receiving your Hippodrome tickets. So why not combine the normal enthrallment and awe that comes with the spectacular Hippodrome Theater with one of the biggest and most important days of your life?
Why Choose The Hippodrome Theater?
Ready to take an inside look at the Hippodrome Theater and find out just why it would be the perfect wedding location? Then stay tuned for everything you need to know.
The Hippodrome Theater will give a high end and classy feel to your wedding thanks to the historic style architecture of the building and its romantic layout. It would make the most picturesque location for both the reception and the ceremony should you wish. The historic style and well detailed columns outside of the building make for some classic and delicate photos.
The Hippodrome Theater – Spacing And What’s Included
Are you planning a big family wedding? Perfect, as the Hippodrome Theater in Gainesville Florida is the ideal location for a wedding with up to 200 guests. The theater contains three event spaces, allowing you to have plenty of choices for your special event.
The theater offers an additional bar service, which would include bartenders on the day, waiting on hand to make some of the best cocktails and drinks your guests have tasted, ready to stir up the evening for a wicked dance-off. That ticks another stress off of your list.
The Hippodrome Theater Location
The Hippodrome Theater is located directly in the center of Gainesville, making it a super easy location to find and quick to travel to, even with public transport. As it is in the center of Gainesville, it is surrounded by some of the best restaurants in town, so that you have somewhere to run to for a quick lunch or dinner on the frantic days before the wedding.
Hotels Near The Hippodrome Theater
Have you got family and friends traveling in from far for the big day? Then I am sure having the whole clan crash on your living room sofas and having blow up mattresses spilling out into the hallway is the last thing you expect to have to put up with the night before your wedding in order to put up your guests. A far easier and more comfortable option for everyone is having your wedding at a location that is close to some high class, nearby hotels so that your guests can relax the night before the wedding and arrive early to the ceremony.
That is another reason why I love the Hippodrome Theater as a wedding location, as it is situated near some brilliant hotels that your family and friends will love. Take a look:
- Hampton Inn and Suites
Hampton Inn and Suites is the ideal hotel for your family and friends to stay at for the period coming up to and after your wedding. It is located a mere two blocks from the Hippodrome Theater meaning there will be no excuse for your bridal party to arrive late at the wedding – not even the bridesmaids!
Bookings at this hotel come with free hot breakfast so that your family and friends can pile in the grub that will keep them stuffed right up until the “I do’s”. The hotel also boasts an outdoor saltwater pool (how fancy) and gym, so your bridal party can do some last minute toning and relax before the big day.

The Holiday Inn University Center is also an excellent hotel for your wedding guests to unwind before the wedding. The hotel is located in the heart of Gainesville and makes it easy to get to the Hippodrome Theater in a matter of minutes.
