,When it comes to picking a wedding location, don’t allow yourself to be bound by tradition. While a restaurant or a hotel are tried-and-true sites for holding a wedding, there’s a growing trend of having your wedding location in some unique and unexpected spots. Let’s take a look at the best ones.
Converted industrial buildings. While a converted factory or mill might not sound like the most romantic backdrop, this has actually been one of the hottest trends in alternative wedding locations. Once an industrial space is emptied of the actual equipment, the buildings that remain have a surprisingly modern and elegant feel. If you are interested in a trendy site like this, you will need to do some research to find a place that is well-lit and open enough to serve for a wedding.
National parks. Outdoor weddings have been popular for years, but of all outdoor locations, perhaps the most magnificent ones are national parks. There's a reason places are protected-- they offer amazing views and a natural environment that relaxes and fascinates at the same time. In order to make your wedding happen in a national park, you will need to figure out the regulations about what kinds of facilities you are allowed to set up, and how big your wedding party can be.
Museums. Ranging from classical and elegant to fun and quirky, museums can be a great place to hold a wedding. They are typically large and spacious, beautifully designed, and have plenty of talking points for the guests. An art museum is an obvious choice, but if you have some special affinity, whether history or dinosaurs, then other kinds museums can also have their charms.
Botanical gardens. A botanical garden is a kind of combination of a museum and a national park. Hold your wedding here, and you will be surrounded by exotic flowers, elegant canopies of trees, fountains, paths, and hidden romantic nooks.
Boat venues. Having a wedding on a boat or a yacht doesn't mean you have to be sailing the whole time. The boat can be docked for the majority of the day, but it can go for a cruise as part of the after-party. Altogether, being on the water can prove to be romantic and refreshing, and of course, it will offer a fantastic backdrop for the wedding pictures.
Vineyards. Vineyards strike a balance between the natural and rustic on the one hand, and the sophisticated and cultured on the other. Thanks to the rolling hills, the sunshine, and of course the wine, a vineyard can be a unique and memorable place to tie the knot.
