City Wedding / Country Wedding


There are so many wonderful options for wedding venues! The only problem is that it can be hard to pick just one from among all of the beautiful choices. Chic urban loft? Charming country inn? Grand art museum? Rustic barn? These are some of the things to consider when deciding between having a city wedding or a country wedding.

Certainly, there are many fantastic things about getting married in a big city. The style and excitement are unmatched. The choices for venues are also marvelous. You could have an ultra-stylish cocktail party in a hip loft (so fun for your friends). Or rent a space in a grand venue, like the soaring atrium of a fine art museum after hours (perfect for a black tie wedding – wear a fabulous designer gown with sparkling bridal jewelry handcrafted to coordinate). Of course big cities also have spectacular venues overlooking sparkling skylines from high above, elegant hotels, private clubs, and unique gallery spaces. There is almost no limit, except of course, for your budget.

The budget can be one of the cons of a city wedding. While there are certainly affordable venues in any region, things do tend to cost more in major metropolitan areas. It is not just the obvious things like florists or venue rental fees, but also the little things like hairstylists and even local sales tax that can really add up. Also keep in mind that parking for a city wedding can be a big headache. Your guests might have to park on a street blocks away or pay an exorbitant fee for a garage. On the flip side, out of town guests will love how many great sights and activities they can take in while staying in the city where you host your wedding.

Country weddings have a much slower pace than city affairs. Some couples really like the laid-back vibe of a wedding out in the countryside “away from it all”. Obviously, there will be many more choices for outdoor weddings in natural settings once you head away from a big city. You could exchange your vows under an ancient oak tree, sip cocktails on the veranda of a charming country resort inn, or dance the night away in an old barn strung with white lights. Wear a charming lace or linen gown with special handcrafted bridal jewelry to complement the setting. Country weddings offer a lot of space and are generally very family friendly.

Some of the cons to a country wedding can be that resources may be more limited. In a rural area, there may be only a handful of local florists, for instance. If you have a high style design in mind, you might have to spend a fortune to bring in a florist from a more urban area, or change your plan to something more simple. At one country wedding I attended, there were no beauty salons open on the morning of the Sunday wedding, meaning that everyone, including the bride, had to do their own hair. And of course, that relaxed pace of life does not appeal to everyone. If your idea of the dream wedding includes an after-party at a hip nightclub, you might want to stick to the city. On the other hand, the low-key pace of country life can be very calming, and a lovely setting for a wedding.

The city and the countryside both have a lot to offer. Each couple needs to weigh the pros and cons of each to come up with the place that will be perfect for them. Whichever you choose, you are sure to have a beautiful wedding.
