How Many Guests Can You Have at the Old Polo Estate?

To avoid falling in love with a venue and then realizing it isn’t big enough, it’s important to have an idea of how many guests you want to invite, and to check the capacity of each venue you look at! The Old Polo Estate can host up to 500 people, though couples with a guest list of over 300 are required to provide their own security – to be approved by property management. This venue is great for just about any couple!

Weather & Seasons at the Old Polo Estate Wedding Venue

A date is one of the first things you’ll decide on once you start planning your wedding, but weather in the desert of Coachella gets pretty extreme – so here’s what you need to know about the best time to tie the knot at the Old Polo Estate.

While in most locations, summers are the most popular for weddings, here, temperatures can climb to over 100 degrees! So, spring and fall are much more popular with couples – the weather is warm and sunny but not as hot, making for great conditions for an outdoor ceremony. Be sure to book the Old Polo Estate wedding venue early, especially if you plan to get married during these peak dates!

Winter can be a great time to tie the knot as well since the desert stays pretty warm. Temperatures are more mild, though mornings and evenings can be pretty chilly. 

Another thing to think about when you’re choosing your wedding date is the day of the week – though Saturday weddings are the most popular, you can get married any day of the week! Venues often have more availability on weekdays, and you’ll also get a better rate.
