Planning your wedding is a notoriously difficult task and with so much pressure now on couples to find the “perfect” place prices have spiralled out of control. So it is important to stop, take stock, and remember that your wedding is actually about making a commitment to someone you love in the company of your family and friends, not a social media photoshoot. So instead of paying so much for your wedding you can’t afford a mortgage, maybe you should check out some alternative wedding venues and create something truly unique. And don’t think you’ll be on your own, most places will offer support in planning your special day. 

The first mistake people make is thinking that alternative and cheaper means lesser. There are many reasons to look at having your wedding reception in an alternative venue, and the lower price tag is just one of the benefits. Using an alternative venue offers you the opportunity to really tailor your wedding to you.

  1. Uniquely You: Ditch the cookie-cutter feel and create a wedding that reflects your personalities and passions. Embrace a venue that speaks to your interests, whether it’s a museum for the art lovers or a brewery for the hopheads.
  2. Unleash

Your Creativity: Alternative venues often loosen the reins on decor restrictions. Transform a blank canvas like a loft or a garden into a masterpiece that reflects your vision.

  1. Budget

Bliss: Traditional venues can come with a hefty price tag. Explore alternative options that might be easier on the wallet, allowing you to splurge on other aspects of your dream day.

  1. Intimate

Gathering: Skip the crowded ballroom and embrace the cozy charm of a smaller venue. This fosters a more personal connection with your loved ones as you celebrate your union.

  1. Memorable

Backdrop: Imagine saying “I do” with a breathtaking vista as your witness.  Alternative venues can offer stunning scenery for your photos, creating a truly unforgettable experience.

  1. DIY

Delight: Many alternative venues allow for more flexibility with catering and decorations. Unleash your inner crafter and personalize your wedding with DIY touches that add a special charm.

  1. Acoustic

Advantage: Escape the potential for noise restrictions in traditional venues. Some alternative spaces might allow for live music or a playlist that perfectly complements your celebration.

  1. Activity

Adventures: Think outside the box! Consider a venue that offers unique experiences for your guests. A winery wedding could include a grape-stomping competition, while a barn wedding might allow for lawn games.

  1. Pet-Friendly

Fun: For some couples, their furry friends are family. Certain alternative venues, like parks or outdoor spaces, might allow your pet to be part of your special day.

  1. Eco-Conscious

Celebration: Embrace sustainable practices by choosing a venue that aligns with your eco-friendly values. Look for locations that utilize recycled materials or offer local, organic catering options.
