Acoustic perfection

Wedding bands | Sheknows.ca

Jazz up your celebration by getting hitched at a concert hall. Just think of the acoustics! You know the music will sound spectacular.

2

Back to your roots

There's a very familial feeling inherent with farmhouses, so what better setting to join two clans together? Walking down the aisle, surrounded by rustic wood... The vintage vibe is perfect for a pair in love.

Wedding carnival

Outdoor weddings are nothing new, but golf courses have had their day in the sun. Make your first steps into the journey of holy matrimony an adventure, and host your shindig at an amusement park.

Matinee

For the film fanatics: Rent a movie theatre and screen some classics or home movies of you and your partner. Depending on your videographer, footage of the bride and groom getting ready might be available by the time the reception rolls around. A Mason jar filled with kernels or candy could be your party favours.

5

Library party

Sex and the City laid the groundwork for many things in relation to relationships, and since Carrie Bradshaw wed in the iconic New York Public Library, many are following suit.

6

Night at the museum

Modern? Contemporary? Whatever your style, there's a museum for that. Steeped in culture, these locations need minimal decorating, since the walls are already adorned with art.

7

The ball game

Are sports your thing? There's no shortage of seating where stadiums are concerned. Wedding guests love pigs in a blanket, so hit a home run and serve up gourmet hot dogs, or get food trucks to park at the entrance of the arena.

8

Woodland charm

A forest will make your entry into marriage magical. Be at one with nature, and whether or not green is part of your colour scheme, the lush surroundings will captivate your guests. Add some fairy lights for true enchantment.

9

In port

Skip the seasickness, and don't sail away. Keep the boat afloat, and the dock can serve as an extension of your ship. Dance the night away under the stars and over the water.

10

Industrial edge

Warehouses are all the rage. The industrial feel coupled with old-fashioned elements is a winning design combo. Many old buildings have rooftop access, which is great for taking photos or for a welcome cocktail.
