Who knew how stressful it could be planning the best day of your life? Between color schemes, menu options, and the ever-agonizing dilemma of whether to go with a live band or DJ, it’s easy to get overwhelmed while trying to keep track of all the details.
Any bride-to-be will tell you that choosing a venue may be the most significant decision they’ll make throughout the process–the judgment upon which so many of your other wedding plans hinge. It may even be a bit difficult to reconcile reality with your dreams in this area. Fortunately, we have a few wedding venue suggestions for couples who want to make their special day unforgettable without breaking the bank.
Did you know that you could seamlessly sneak a history lesson into your wedding? It’s possible if you choose to get married at a landmark site. The newest iteration of the destination wedding is most likely more accessible for your guests to reach and imbued with a unique atmosphere. Many bigger buildings in most downtown areas have been refurbished and repurposed for events like weddings. They will provide all your guests with a fascinating conversation starter for the whole night. A beautiful example of a historical landmark venue is The Startup Building in Provo. It was built in 1898 as a candy factory owned by the Startup family. Now the building houses several startup companies and is also used for weddings and other events. Check out their website here. One of my favorites outside of Utah is the Grand Hall in Kansas City. You can visit Thegrandhallkc.com to learn more about this intriguing wedding venue as well!
You’ve probably never imagined getting married in a space formerly used for industry, but we’d like you to reconsider. Some of the most popular wedding venues are repurposed multi-story industrial buildings, making it the perfect space for celebrating until the sun comes up. One of our favorites here Utah is The White Shanty, which features 3,500 square feet, plenty of windows for natural light and oversized sliding barn doors to allow an indoor/outdoor wedding and reception. Check it out here.
Like landmark venues, you can blend your divine love with an art lesson or two. Art museums are a bit of a dark horse for wedding venues, as they’re not only relatively cheap to rent out for an event, but the scenery is nearly unmatched. A local option for your wedding is the Springville Museum of Art. Visit the website here.
Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful, but choosing a unique venue that fits your budget doesn’t have to be. Sometimes, you need to think outside of the box when it comes to crafting a memorable day. Fortunately, there are plenty of gems all around; it’s only a matter of knowing where to look.
