4 Non-traditional Wedding Spaces You Should Consider

6 things you need to do when trekking with kids

Your upcoming wedding is one of the most powerful symbols of your and your partner’s commitment to spending a future together. It’s a day that marks the beginning of another chapter in your lives, and you’ll be constantly reminded of the promises you made that day when you look at your sapphire engagement ring, wedding ring, and other physical reminders of your union.

Your choice of wedding space can make the ceremony more memorable for you, your partner, and the guests that you’ll be sharing this special moment of your lives with. While many couples opt to choose traditional wedding venues like churches, hotel ballrooms, or banquet halls, there are also couples who want their wedding venue to be as unique, as exciting, or as special as their love story. If you belong to the latter group, here are some options that you can consider:

  1. Vintage shop. Vintage-themed weddings are a popular choice for young couples these days, but many people have difficulty securing a location that reflects the era that they want to emulate. Ensuring that a traditional venue, like a hotel ballroom or banquet hall, will live up to the couple’s vision can be an expensive project. A vintage shop, on the other hand, has all the items and trinkets you need to pull off a vintage-themed wedding. Simply rent the space on your chosen date, and you’ll get the theme of the wedding right without much effort or incurring a huge expense.
  2. Outdoors: park, waterfalls, campsite. An outdoor wedding is a great option for couples who want to have nature as their backdrop and who want to save on costs. An outdoor location, such as a park, in front of a waterfall, or in the middle of a field or wooded area, will look great without requiring much décor. However, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding, there are a few things you should think about and make plans for, such as the weather on that day, how your guests and suppliers will get to the area, and if there are adequate facilities there for your event.
  3. Planetarium. If you’ve ever dreamed of saying your vows under the stars, then holding your wedding in a planetarium is one option that you should consider. This closed space offers all the benefits of an indoor venue with the added ‘view’ of the stars, regardless of the time of day or the weather outside. This makes planetariums a practical and romantic wedding space.
  4. Farm or zoo. A wedding on a farm or zoo is a great option for couples who love animals and nature in general. The presence of farm or zoo animals in the venue adds a certain charm to the event, and the venue can also work with theme weddings. What’s more, these venues have plenty of space, so you’re sure that your guests will have enough room to socialize and mingle.

One of the main advantages of going with an unconventional wedding venue is the savings because these venues will likely cost a lot less compared to traditional ones. At the same time, non-traditional wedding venues lend a refreshing atmosphere to the ceremony and make it more special to everyone who is taking part in it. These wedding spaces already come with their own unique décor, so you have fewer things to worry about or spend on. Plus, it gives your photographer every opportunity to take photos that tell a story.

Your wedding day is the start of another phase of your lives together, and you understandably want that start to be great. Choosing a non-traditional wedding venue can be one of the solid steps you can take to make your dream wedding come true, or even to make your wedding as hassle-free as possible.
