Creative Venue Options for Your Reception
Paperia | July 2015
If you’re not a “cookie cutter” bride, you’re probably interested in having your wedding reception in a more unique location. We’ve put together some creative venue options for your reception you may be interested in.
Did you know that you can actually hold wedding receptions in many museums? You could be surrounded by art, dinosaur bones, sculptures, and so much more. Some museums even offer tours your guests can take!
If you love animals, you should consider holding your reception at a zoo or aquarium. You can dance all night alongside a number of creatures your guests would surely love seeing.
If you’re in search of a beautiful outdoor location, you should look into city or national parks. They make for spectacular backgrounds and you would have plenty of room for a large reception if need be.
Botanical Garden/Horticulture Center
If you’re a fan of flowers and nature, a botanical garden just may be the perfect reception spot for you. Many are beautiful manicured, so you’d be surrounded by trees, fountains, grand ceilings, and vegetation.
Renovated barns are becoming a popular reception spot for many couples and it’s no question as to way. The high ceilings with exposed beams, wooden floors, and large windows make for a gorgeous background.
Libraries aren’t just for holding books – they make unique reception venues, too. They’re sophisticated and quaint at the same time and are perfect for all you literature lovers.
Is performing arts a love of yours? If so, why not throw your wedding reception at a theater! You could even have your ceremony there and get married right on stage in front of all your guests.
You might consider having your reception off dry land…that’s right, on the water! A yacht, riverboat, or ferry make great locations if you’re interested in changing backgrounds throughout the event.
There are many unique options when it comes to reception venues, so make sure you do some research to find the one that’s perfect for you!
