Everyone wants to be unique nowadays, and that trend has spilled into the bridal world.
As a bride, one of your number one goals is to choose the perfect location. Even as 2016 winds down to a close, there are a few trendy wedding venues you can get behind as we move into 2017. Check out our list of trendy wedding venues below.
Opera Houses & Performance Venues
Whether you’re a former theater-kid or had your first date at the theater, why not check out a local opera house for your wedding? The wonderful thing about theater venues is that they come with their own décor. For example, antique theater houses often have murals on the ceiling and opulent architectural features. There is also something distinctly romantic about the theater and other performance houses, so you can’t go wrong with this style venue.
Nothing can beat the beauty of Mother Nature, and if you and your guy are big outdoorsy people why not get married there? From Yellowstone to Big Bend, there are countless National Parks throughout the United States and even if you’re located in Europe or beyond you can do a destination wedding at one of America’s greatest parks.
From greenhouses to star gazing locations, conservatories make the perfect backdrop for a wedding. The great thing about getting married in a flower conservatory is that you won’t have to pay for flowers for your ceremony. Picking out a local conservatory for your wedding ceremony is a wonderful and unique way to make it special.
Vineyards are virtually all over the globe. Even if you don’t drink bottles of wine every month, a vineyard is a special and attractive location to get married. It’s also trendy. Vineyards have become popular ceremony and reception places for their natural backdrops and close proximity to great wine…but in all seriousness vineyards make a beautiful place to get married
If you love animals, then why not get hitched at an animal sanctuary? Imagine yourself saying your vows in front of a zebra or while a giraffe munches on trees in the background. Is anything more romantic than that? If you want to give your guests a show an animal sanctuary is a great venue. Bonus points if you ask guests to donate to the sanctuary in place of giving you a wedding gift.
Every country on the planet has historical buildings and architecture that you could use to your advantage. Take a stroll around your local neighborhood and see if there are any spots that ramp up your heart beat and see if they are available for the date you’re wanting. Historical locations have also become extremely popular in recent years, and if you want to stay unique you’ll investigate this trend
Love vinyl’s? Big into old pop music? Then why not take your small ceremony to a local record shop? Hipsters have started the trend, thanks to their love for anything and everything ‘odd and vintage’, and you can benefit from it with your ceremony. Be sure to keep your wedding party and guest list small if you’re opting for this very unique location, but don’t hesitate to book it if it speaks to you.
2016 and 2017 are shaping up to be very unique years in the bridal world, so don’t hold back from booking the venue you want. Non-traditional weddings are all the rage right now so get in touch with your imagination and choose a spot that represents you and your hubby.
