Modern and monochrome or traditional and romantic? Museum or garden? Inject your personality as a couple into the venue location to make it intimate and personal for both you, your families and your guests. Do you love to read? Then a public library may have an event space. Collect wine? A vineyard estate seems the perfect choice.

Make sure you can easily accommodate your maximum guest count and have room for a dance floor, band stage, cocktails and a catering kitchen if not already available.

Cost saver: Many venues own their own tables, chairs, china, stemware, silverware, linens and more, saving thousands on rental and delivery costs.
