Here Are the Options Available for Villa At Gruene
Plan a Reception your own


Many couples plan receptions on their own at their homes, AirBnBs or simply make reservations at a restaurant.  If you are having 20 guests or less this may be the best option for your own day. If you need any services, we can provide as little or as much as you need from table settings to additional hours of photography!

Onsite Mini Reception

Onsite Mini Receptions are simple receptions meant to simply capture the moments of cake cutting, toast/speeches, and 1st dance immediately following your ceremony at the ceremony location.  These short mini receptions add about 20 minutes to the event and allow you to get pictures of these wedding traditions without the expense of a sitdown-style reception. Everlasting Elopements will set up a small decorated table to display your cake and provide all materials needed to cut and serve the cake as well as do a toast.  Additional reception services can not be added to this service. $300 for up to 12 guests, additional guest $3/guest

Dinner Reception at a Nearby Restaurant

Villa at Gruene is the heart of the downtown area of Gruene with about 10 within walking distance restaurants such at the Gristmill, River House, and Gruene River Grill. We can come to any of these restaurants and perform reception services for you and your guests!

Non-Meal Receptions

Everlasting Elopements offers smaller receptions for couples not wanting a traditional full reception with a sit-down meal.  Best for those couples having small guest counts who would not likely dance we offer the following packages:

1.  Mini Receptions conducted at a restaurant

2.  Cake & Punch Reception

3.  Cocktail Reception

Micro-Receptions (Micro-Weddings)

Our micro-reception packages designed for small guest counts are perfect for those couples wanting all the aspects of a large wedding but slimmed down to better suit their smaller guest counts.  Choose between these 3 levels :

1.  Dinner Reception Only

2.  Micro Reception

3.  Traditional Reception

Exploring your Destination

The Villa at Gruene is located in Gruene, TX a suburb of New Braunfels, near the Guadalupe River on a beautiful vineyard. Explore the Historic District of Gruene before or after your wedding ceremony or the Gruene Lake Village, both great for shopping. Explore the antique shops, cigar shop, and delicious food while you’re there!

Some great places for food nearby are Black’s Barbecue, Gristmill River Restaurant & Bar for Southern food, and A Tan Bistro & Sushi Bar for a sleek sushi experience.

For places to stay, consider the super close Gruene River Inn or the Wingate by Wyndham New Braunfels right next to Buc-ee’s.



I was so stressed at the beginning of starting my wedding planning. I had no idea where to begin, and my fiancé and I knew that we wanted something that was perfect for a 50-60 size wedding (all within a 2 month time frame). When I came across Everlasting Elopements, my stress was finally relieved. Kari has been so helpful the entire process, answering any questions or concerns I had! It came out to be everything I was dreaming of, and more! She even helped set up a few of the decorations I brought, as well as help me bustle my dress, along with so many other things. I am so glad we decided to go with Everlasting Elopements!! I will definitely recommend to any bride and groom I come across that are planning a small wedding. Thank you Kari, and the entire team for bringing our dream wedding to life!

How does it work?

Everlasting Elopements’ unique and simple virtual wedding planning system was built to simplify the wedding planning process. To keep the stress out of the process, we have a step-by-step system to plan your wedding ceremony from now to ‘I Do’. 

It all starts with the ceremony package! Once you have selected this we can customize any extras and build on a reception package. Then we will help you select and book the perfect venue that fits your vision. Once you book, it’s just a matter of completing a few forms, then showing up on the day with your license and rings– we do everything else!  Wedding Planning does not have to be stressful or hard if you have the right team behind you to execute a flawless wedding day!

Weddings have many variables so it is essential to take things in steps in order to build a customized wedding package to suit your needs– this way you’re only paying for services you need (and nothing you don’t)!


1. Select Your Wedding Ceremony Package

Whether you are looking for an elopement, a micro wedding, or just a simple exchange of “I Do”- we have a package for you to choose from. The first step is to select which one is right for you.

2. Select Your Extras

Once you have selected your package, you can select which level suits your needs. Each package has a Basic, Deluxe, and Premium level that offers various upgrades and add-ons. This allows us to do as little or as much as you need on your big day!

3. Select Your Reception Options

Once you have finalized your ceremony plans, we can add on one of a variety of reception options. Whether you want to have a Mini-Reception or Full Reception on-site, eat at a restaurant, or plan a reception on your own, we can help with rentals, cake, coordination, photography, and everything else you could need.  If you decide to add reception elements in addition to your ceremony, we will simply pair the two packages together to get you the services you need for the full wedding day you are dreaming of!

4. Choose Your Venue

Now that we’ve gotten to know you and your wants and needs we can recommend venues that will work best for you! Or, if you have one already in mind, our packages will work there too. While we have many locations on our website for you to browse, if it’s not on our website we can still serve you there! Our packages work at ANY location!

5. Stress Free Planning

Once your ceremony has been reserved through our online reservation system, we will send you a series of emails with forms that go directly to your vendors. All you need to do is complete the forms and your vendors will reach out if needed. Remember, you always have the ability to add new elements as well as upgrade services you already have at any point if you choose!

6. Your Wedding Day

You and your fiance, along with any guests, will show up at the venue you have chosen with your marriage license and rings. The Everlasting Elopements Team of Wedding Vendors will take care of the rest and all the details so you can focus on what the day is really about- Marrying the One You LOVE!

Don’t wait any longer.
