Do you picture yourself as a non-traditional bride?
Don't have too many affiliations with a close church or place of worship?
It seems to be more and more popular these days for young couples to be more creative with what space they choose for their magical day. Whether it be for the ceremony or the reception, more and more brides and grooms seem to be looking away from traditional banquet halls and venues.
Here are a few suggestions for you and your loved one to consider...
Outdoor weddings are beautiful and always romantic for a very non-traditional take on your ideal wedding venue, however there are many factors that come into play when deciding inside or outside.
What time of year is it going to be?
What is the average weather forecast for your city/town around that time?
Is it easy to switch from outside to inside if there is a freak storm that randomly comes your way?
All of these are things to consider when you and your beloved are discussing where to say your "I do's".
Another beautiful idea that modern brides are doing is having their ceremonies and receptions within botanical gardens or conservatories! How amazing would it be if you were walking down the aisle with butterflies floating all around the room?! So romantic!
Not too into butterflies, but love animals? Another amazing idea is to hold your wedding at a local zoo!
Your guests will rave about the beautiful scenery and the exotic take on your special day and will never be able to forget how exciting the whole experience was!
If either of these nature-esque settings sound appealing to you, make sure to consider your guests as well before saying "Yes!" to the venue.
As well as beautiful venues to rent out like the ones we have previously listed above, it seems to be a trending idea to have your amazing day at a familiar family barn.
Asking your Aunt and Uncle for the barn for reception would probably make them happier than you could ever imagine and keep the beautiful memories of your wedding forever on that land. Sounds so touching!
Whatever you decide to do with your wedding space make sure it represents you both as a couple.
Your guests want to be surrounded by your kind of love and not a "cookie-cutter" version.
So make sure you're sticking true to what fits both your personalities and sit back to enjoy the most magical night of your life unveil!
Until Next Time,
