I don't mean to get all "Knot.com" on you, but your wedding venue truly does set the tone for the day.
I'm not saying this to make couples feel even more pressured to shell out the dough for an expensive room with a fancy chandelier that, if sold, could pay off you and your hubby's student loans. I'm merely encouraging you engaged folk to get your creative juices flowing! Toss the banquet hall out the window (unless you have a sincere liking to them), because your wedding can seriously take place wherever there are walls. Or grass. Or concrete. Or sand. Or roller coasters. (Yes, roller coasters.)
I love when couples have their reception in an unusual place that doesn't typically "do weddings" - like at a movie theater...
...or a bowling alley
...or a vintage car gallery
...or an amusement park
...or a ball park (expect to pay a pretty penny for this one)
But more than trying to impress guests with a unique venue, consider hosting your wedding at a place that truly reflects who you are as a couple. Because when you're true to yourselves you simply can't go wrong, no matter which of your crazy aunts thinks your venue is strange, or which of your co-workers thinks your venue is tacky. Be brave! Do you. The end.
PS. My favorite wedding venue: BACKYARDS! Awww...
