These days, more and more couples are looking for ways to make their wedding day unique. One way of doing this is choosing a venue with a difference. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with hotels and banquet halls. But it’s always worth thinking outside the box. Here are some suggestions for those looking for something different.
We’re blessed to have some of the most incredible scenery in the world on our doorstep, so why not make the most of it? Today, it’s possible to get married almost anywhere you can imagine. You may not be able to host the ceremony at a stunning beauty spot, but you could consider having your reception in the great outdoors. If you fall head over heels in love with somewhere that isn’t geared up for weddings, you can usually find a solution. Many couples have a legal ceremony at a register office before moving to a different location for the reception. If you’re eager to host your party in a field or by a lake, for example, you could look into hiring a marquee. You’ll need to find out if the land is privately owned, and check that it’s available to hire.
A walk on the wild side
Are you animal lovers? Are you hoping to treat your guests to a day they’ll never forget? If so, why not celebrate your wedding day at a wildlife park or an aquarium? Many attractions now offer wedding packages, which you can tailor to suit your preferences. Stage photos in front of giant tanks of agile stingray or organize an evening safari.
Beach weddings revised
Beach weddings have been popular for years now, and you can understand why. There’s nothing like feeling the sun on your skin and watching the waves roll in surrounded by family and friends. If you love the idea of a seaside ceremony, there are alternatives. You could hire a lighthouse for the day, for example, or take a boat out to a tiny island. If you have a special spot in mind, do some research and find out all your options.
Do you love the modern industrial interior design trend? Are you looking for a hip and trendy space for your wedding? If so, a warehouse could be the perfect option. You’ll have loads of space for your guests to dance the night away, and there’s scope to create an incredible aesthetic. Hire giant illuminated initials for the dance floor and hang twinkling fairy lights from the rafters. Set up a DIY photo booth with a rustic brick wall backdrop.
If you’re looking for a wedding venue that will wow your guests, it’s time to be open-minded and creative. Think about places you love, and the kinds of scenes you want at your wedding. Take some trips out and get some inspiration from your travels. Do some homework online, and don’t be afraid to be different. If you see locations you’re crazy about, make some inquiries. You never know until you ask!
