Evening weddings are growing in popularity for a number of reasons. Personally, I think they’re a great idea if you want to try something different. Break free from the norm and have all your wedding photos taken in the twilight with glistening stars in the background.
The main conundrum with an evening wedding is where do you have it? There are loads of great ideas out there, and here are some of the best:
Having your wedding on a beach is absolutely perfect. What an amazing setting, and it’s made even better in the evening. You can have firelit torches and cute stone pebbles making up the aisle. Plus, as seen on SparklersOnline.com, a beach wedding is the perfect place to light some sparklers and add an extra bit of extravagance to the occasion. This location is ideal if you want to get your wedding ceremony done in the early evening sunset. It will cast the perfect backdrop for photos and mean you can start the reception celebrations at night!
Another great idea for an evening wedding location is a rustic barn. While this may seem pretty strange and not at all elegant, it can actually be a beautiful setting. We looked at a couple’s barn wedding on this site before, and their photos looked amazing. In the moonlight, a barn acts as the perfect setting for a small, family wedding. It’s not too elaborate, but still creates a very memorable moment that people will be talking about for years to come. The barn itself serves as a great place for the ceremony with loads of options for decorations around the place. Some fairy lights or lanterns would look gorgeous in this setting. Then, walk down the aisle outside the barn and have your wedding photos under the moon.
The whole point of an evening wedding is to have the ceremony outside. This is why a garden is a great option for your location. You could host the wedding in your back garden, or in the gardens of a hotel. Either way, with the gorgeous greenery and flowers placed around the place, it makes for a movie-like atmosphere. Ideally, you want there to be a beautiful tree in the garden to serve as a focal point for wedding photos. You can put lights in bushes and create a lovely aisle using paving stones. Regardless of whether you have your evening wedding at home or in a different garden, it will be utterly mesmerizing and beautiful.
So, those are our picks of the best locations for evening weddings. As it mentions on confetti.co.uk, there are loads of pros and cons to having a wedding in the evening. One of the biggest pros is that you get to create a beautiful setting that’s different from traditional weddings. Why don’t you think outside the box for your wedding day and try a twilight ceremony? Trust me, it will be a decision you never regret, and you’ll be amazed by the unbelievable pictures.
