How to Choose a Unique Wedding Reception Venue


For years, brides have been willing to settle for the usual venues for their wedding receptions. The ceremony would conclude and the guests would head to a banquet hall, or a country club, to dine on chicken, prime rib, and a wilted salad. The focus was on the bride and groom, who would dance the night away beside a live band or DJ and would then be bid farewell with a toss of the rice. In recent years, things have begun to change. Some brides are looking back to simpler times before weddings became complicated, expensive affairs and hosting their receptions in quaint, out of the way locations. Others are turning average spaces into something spectacular for their big day. Locations like a public warehouse or a fulfillment have become destinations for wedding receptions.

Another option for a one-of-a-kind reception is a farm or barn. Some farm owners have realized they can host events on their property and they renovated spaces to make them more party friendly. In other cases, a bride may find a location that needs some work and take care of the decor herself. If the exterior is scenic and pleasant, it does not take much to create dining space and an area for dancing. Using a barn or farm for your wedding reception creates a feeling of rustic simplicity most couples love.

Those with access to a shopping mall after hours, or who can speak with the mall’s manager about renting the empty space, have the perfect, spacious reception venue on their hands. Not all malls will be right for the idea, but many feature elaborate courtyards and center courts where mall events take place. Imagine setting up a banquet area and dance floor in this space for your reception. If the bride is known for her passion for shopping, she will love celebrating her nuptials surrounded by shoes, handbags, and jewelry.

Many people are lucky enough to know a homeowner with a home big enough for a wedding reception. A private residence may be one of the most cost effective locations for a reception you can find. Depending on whose home you are using, there may not even be rental cost for the space. If you are using a private location, work with the homeowner to make sure you create an atmosphere they approve of for your reception. The last thing you want is to damage the space you have been offered out of the kindness of someone’s heart.

Your final option for a unique, affordable wedding destination is celebrating in a community park or open outdoor space. You may need to speak with the local government about space rental, but fees are usually very reasonable. Having an outdoor reception means you will be relying on the weather to enjoy your special day, but there are few scenarios that provide a more scenic, enjoyable time on your special day. If you are planning a spring or fall wedding, consider turning a local park into your private party venue.
