Unique Wedding Venues for Brides-To-Be
Many brides these days want to find the most unique venues for their big day, but with everyone looking for something different, it can be hard to nail down what you want. When choosing a venue, It’s best to think of something that is special to you and your partner, a place that represents you both at this stage in your relationship.
There are lots of details to consider when using a non-traditional venue, such as whether you’ll be also able to hold the reception there, whether you can serve food and alcohol, and how accessible it is for friends and family members. If the venue is outdoors, you’ll also need to have a backup in case the weather isn’t on your side. Here are a few things to think about for your big day, as well as ideas for wedding venues that are as unique as the dresses you get from Volle's Bridal.
If you’re fortunate enough to live in a city that’s scenic year-round, consider a bed-and-breakfast as your wedding venue. Tailor-made for small, intimate ceremonies, these charming homes make the perfect place to say your vows since they can accommodate your guests and act as the reception area at the same time. As long as you don’t have a huge wedding party, a bed-and-breakfast may be just right for your big day.
The local library
If you’re an avid reader, consider the library for your special day. Many libraries around the country offer a historic venue that will accommodate a wedding ceremony, but keep in mind that you may not be able to bring in food or drinks. Check with your local library to see what their policies are, or consider having an out-of-town wedding at one in a nearby city.
Your own backyard
It’s possible to have a beautiful, chic wedding in your own backyard — it just takes a little planning. If you have pets, remove all signs of them from the yard. Fill in any holes, touch up the landscaping, paint or stain the fence, and make sure you’ll have enough room for seating and parking.
For a beautiful ceremony that won’t break the bank, build a pergola or arbor for the occasion and string it with fairy lights. Not only will you have something special for your big day, but it’s something that can be enjoyed for years to come. Most homeowners spend between $2,459 and $3,802 to build one of these structures. Best of all, it’s the kind of aesthetic addition that can boost your home’s value in the long run.
If you and your love are wine drinkers, look to a nearby vineyard for all your wedding day needs. These gorgeous grounds usually include an area for the reception, as well as the nuptials — meaning, you can relax and enjoy the day without having to worry about getting everyone to a second location.
Ranch or farm
The great thing about a ranch or farm as a wedding venue is that they are located all over the U.S. and usually have quite a bit of room to accommodate your guests. You may want to ensure there is a barn available for the vows in case of inclement weather and talk to the owners about what it will look like on the big day.
No matter which venue you choose for your wedding day, it should be meaningful for you and your partner, as well as budget-friendly. What works for one bride may not work for another, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t find what you want right away. Making sure your day is perfect will help you stay focused and reduce the stress that can come with planning such an important event.
