What people are saying about GiGi's Country Garden.

If Gigi's doesn't bring out the little kid in you, nothing will.
   A bit of fantasia in Plant City, Gigi's falls somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Jungle Book. Fanciful signage leads you through a labyrinth of paths and waterways highlighted by whimsical sculptures and improbable waterfalls. Gloria and Frank Howard most certainly had a blast creating this special place. - Mark Hutchinson
 


Hidden Gem in Plant City Florida.
   A good friend of mine attended a wedding over the weekend and told me I have to check the venue out. So I looked it up online at www.gigiscountrygarden.com. It is as cute in person as it is in pictures. It is a little rustic garden. The rates are super reasonable too! I have not personally attended a wedding at this venue but I trust my friend 100% and she said it was amazing! So if you are looking for a hidden gem of a location for a rustic outdoor wedding I recommend looking into Gigi’s County Garden in Plant City!  - from WCG EVENTS
 


The Best Kept Secret in Tampa, reviewed on 5/28/2014 by Michelle W.
   Honestly, this place is a fairy tale. We were looking for something that would fit into our budget and give us a fun, young vibe. The moment I walked in the gate, it took my breath away. Frank and Gigi have done a beautiful job with the decorations. It rained on our wedding day, up until about an hour before the ceremony. Frank and Gigi worked tirelessly to drain the extra water and the ceremony went on as planned. I wouldn't have had our wedding any other place. The pictures are beautiful - the venue set the whole atmosphere for the wedding. It was more of a fun, laid back backyard party, which is exactly what we wanted. Bonus: we saved BIG on linens, center pieces and decor since it's all there! The owners answer fast via phone, text or email. They were willing to answer my hundreds of questions to make sure we were all at ease the day of.*



GiGi's Country Garden, reviewed on 11/13/2012 by Olivia T.
   I really wanted an outdoor wedding, but we were getting married in Florida and most of the local gardens don't have proper shade/covering, they don't have a place or an outdoor reception, or they are just WAY too expensive. GiGi's is VERY affordable and beautiful. We had our ceremony and reception there, all chairs and tables were included, a PA system was available, the garden was beautiful with many decorations already present, it was kid friendly (a lot of my guests have small children), it's a beautiful venue for a night reception (there are lights in the trees and vintage fireplaces), and all of this only cost us about $1500. It would have been impossible to find another venue for that price (at least a nice one anyways). The only down sides to the garden is that it cannot host a large wedding, it only seats 100, the garden was a little more country than I thought it would be (I wanted a more vintage look, so we just added lace everywhere), and the owners can sometimes be difficult to get a hold of. GiGi and her husband are sweet, wonderful people, but they don't always return phone calls right way. Overall, I was very please and I may use the venue again in the future for parties or family reunions.*

Perfect Fall Garden Wedding, reviewed on 11/08/2012 by Carrie H.
   The location was private and perfect for our intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. The decorations (which were Fall for us) were included in the cost to rent the place, plus they also took care of set up of all chairs and tables.*
