Choosing the Right Venue for Your Wedding Style : Part IV, Nontraditional Venues

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Lofts, barns, museums or even garages can all be great locations for your wedding site. They offer a very unique atmosphere and aesthetic and can already have built in design for your day.

You might find a nontraditional venue, perfect for you, if:

 1. You have a very distinct style and would rather have the venue communicate this style rather than try to transform a ballroom or private estate to fit your vision.

2. You like the idea of giving your guests a completely new experience. Many of the nontraditional spaces are not as overused as other more traditional venues and your wedding may be the first time anyone has ever seen a wedding like yours.

3. You want to be creative and the venue will allow you to do so throughout every detail of the wedding. For example, if you are in a loft for your wedding, you might find a really posh cocktail party would be a better flow for the evening. Or, if you are in a barn for the night, you might embrace the feel by playing horseshoes at cocktail hour or having a lounge area created out of hay bales.

We guest-blogged a PERFECT example of using a nontraditional wedding space on Style Me Pretty today. Check it out!

It's so nice that off-beat wedding locations are being encouraged more & more these days! How about this...a unique Scottish wedding - bride arrives in landrover, vows exchanged on a highland hill top...intimate dinner in a remote bothy, ceilidh celebrations in a big tent and overnight camping most welcome! This is the summer wedding I'm helping to plan and it's so exciting - thanks for helping with inspiration via your blog! :)
