Cactus and Tropicals Wedding Info

Cactus and Tropicals is one of Utah’s best plant and garden stores. It seamlessly transforms into a lush event space.

Cactus and Tropicals hosts weddings year round and has both indoor and outdoor venue options at two locations, Draper and Salt Lake City.

From my experience, most couples prefer the Draper location. The high ceilings and dappled light from the greenhouse make a chapel-like ceremony site. And this space has an easy flow as the evening transitions along.

The stage is set in a greenery-filled plant paradise for a picture-perfect wedding. You can (but don’t have to) add personalized visual flourishes.

Beautifully unique details—including a koi pond, outdoor gazebos, terraces, and a fire pit—are scattered throughout both venues. And Cactus and Tropicals’ friendly, experienced staff, and open-vendor policy help create a fully customized wedding with ease.


Both locations can accommodate up to 200 guests. Tables and seating for up to 100 guests are included, with additional seating options available as needed.


Cactus and Tropicals has locations, one in Salt Lake City (20 minutes from the airport) and the other in Draper (30 minutes from the airport).
