Your wedding day should celebrate all you and your love are as a couple. It should celebrate the commitment you are making, the history that brought you to the wedding day, everything the future holds, and the fabulous personalities the two of you have. Your wedding provides a great opportunity to express yourself. If you want to break the mould and choose a different location for your ceremony and wedding reception, here are a few ideas of wedding venues that are truly unusual.
If you love water, but want to skip the expected beach wedding, try something a little bit different. Get married on a dock near a boat harbour. You’ll get all of the sea breezes and beautiful pictures you crave without getting sand in your shoes. If you’re interested in an intimate ceremony, take your beloved along with a few special guests for a ceremony on a sailboat at sunset.
Get married at your favourite date spot. Maybe you love the zoo or walking the public gardens in your home town. With a little planning and permission from those in charge at your favourite spot, you can turn your date night venue into a gorgeous place for your wedding.
If there are local vineyards or wineries in your hometown, consider using one as a wedding site. Not only can you take advantage of the vineyard’s beautiful grounds, the winery often will help you plan a tasting as part of your reception.
If you and your spouse to be are urban dwellers who love the history of your city, consider getting married in one of the buildings important to your city’s history or culture. Museums, libraries, and historic mansions are wonderful choices because the buildings often provide majestic backdrops to your wedding ceremony.
One of the best ways to make sure your wedding reflects your personality is to hold it in your yard. If you and your future spouse are living together, you can hold it in your own backyard, or plan to have the ceremony in your childhood home or in the home of another close family member. There’s something particularly touching about getting married on the same lawn you played on as a child. This is also a great option for the budget-conscious bride and groom.
If you want to avoid having a wedding that feels typical, all you have to do is think outside the box a little. With proper planning, just about any spot that is special to you can become a beautiful location for your wedding.
