City Club was originally located on the top floor of the FNB Towers in downtown Lafayette when it was originally founded in 1978. In 2002, we relocated to The Village of River Ranch and became the primary tenant of the Town Square. The move placed us in a more central geographic location, and it also precipitated an industry trend of moving away from downtown urban areas into suburban areas of growth. This move allowed us to increase our service offerings while still providing an affordable wedding to our members. Also, the City Club, now located in the center of the city, remains immersed in Lafayette's culinary and entertainment scenes, which is part of the bedrock of Louisiana culture. 
 

 

A Choice Facility

City Club at River Ranch offers both indoor and outdoor venues to host your special day. Outdoor options include the use of the Courtyard or Town Square. Located in the center of River Ranch, the Town Square and Gazebo is a picturesque location for an outdoor wedding ceremony while the Courtyard boasts a beautiful fountain and pergola, two features that act as complementary backdrops to your event.

We also offer several indoor wedding options. While all our rooms are available for member use, we recommend two select options for wedding ceremonies. First, the Fleur De Lis ballroom is a wonderful, elegant suite for hosting larger, sophisticated weddings and receptions. The ballroom can accommodate up to 350 guests. For more intimate wedding parties, the Evangeline Room can be charmingly prepared to act as the perfect setting for up to 100 guests at your wedding. 

No matter which area you select for your event, your guests will relax in comfort as they enjoy their stay at the Carriage House, a boutique hotel within walking distance to your wedding and reception. Your guests will enjoy their accommodations and have access to many of the amenities on the property

Benefits For The Bride

Hosting your wedding at City Club at River Ranch gives you access to a beautiful setting and the ability to provide an all-in-one experience. It also comes with additional exclusive bridal perks that make your special day even better. Here is a sneak peek at the additional benefits of a wedding at City Club afford the bride-to-be.


Day of Event Coordination

Many brides spend years dreaming of their perfect wedding and months planning it only to miss important components of the actual day. Many brides then rely on friends and family to pick up the slack and make things happen, and often they do but at the expense of their own engagement and enjoyment. We know you want every guest, especially family and close friends, to be fully immersed in your wedding experience. You and your guests should be free to celebrate without a care in the world on that day, which is why we offer you a day of wedding coordinator who will exclusively help you on your special day. 

Your wedding coordinator is available to do numerous things:

  • Oversee the scheduling of events

  • Manage the event/room layout(s)

  • Coordinate with outside vendors

  • Manage the DJ greeting and set-up

  • Coordinate wedding photographs with photographer and wedding party

  • Manage the cleanup process

How you leverage the Day of Event Coordinator is partially dependent upon your specific needs and desires. We will listen to your expectations and determine the best plan for you so you can focus on what's most important that day: you.
 

Wedding Vendor Recommendations

Planning a wedding can be such a meaningful experience, and it can also be incredibly stressful, which is especially true when it comes to selecting vendors. Putting together and coordinating your dream team of vendors is a lot of work with you as the middleman and central point of contact. Additionally, selecting a vendor with whom you are not familiar or don't have a personal referral can be risky. We know the last thing you want is a huge wedding mishap on your special day. 

Something Borrowed

You've heard the saying: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. We encourage you to check off the "something borrowed" with our list of recommended wedding vendors. The vendors on our list are exclusive to those who share our expectations of quality, passion, and commitment to your special day. Since we have pre-established relationships with them, it also makes for smooth sailing with limited risk of hiccups on the day of your wedding. 

You are free to use your own vendors, too. Any outside vendor used must be professional, reliable, insured, and within the guidelines established at City Club at River Ranch. We will provide the requirements necessary so that they have a clear understanding of what is allowed and what is not.
