Minnesota-the Land of 10,000 Lakes-is home to a varied landscape with distinct, beautiful seasons, giving couples the perfect backdrop for a Minnesota wedding. The Star of the North, which borders Canada and Lake Superior, is home to national parks, wineries, culturally-rich cities and the historic Mississippi River. Minnesota provides the best of all worlds, encompassing natural beauty and metropolitan sophistication. Whether you want your Minnesota wedding to take place in the center of one of the Twin Cities or off the beaten path, this state has everything you need. A summer wedding in Minnesota can be planned in one of the six unique national parks, like Voyageurs National Park along the Canadian border, which boasts an interior that's accessible exclusively by water. Nature lovers might trek to one of Minnesota's many lakes, which provide ample waterfront wedding opportunities. Let wedding colors reflect the landscape, echoing the trees and water in cool blues and greens. Keep in mind that temperatures and humidity rise in the summer, so wear light, loose clothing, especially if you're outdoors. Alternately, a winter wedding in Minnesota can be ethereal with snowy white backdrops and a warm, cozy feel. Echo this winter wonderland with lush whites and rich burgundies in your wedding decor. Although temperatures dip quite low in the winter, you'll be able to counteract the cold with beautiful fabrics like velvet, satin, and fur.
For those who prefer an artsy, culture-rich vibe, Rochester is the perfect location for your Minnesota wedding. Rochester houses the world famous Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota-Rochester, both of which draw a youthful, international crowd.

The majestic Mississippi River passes directly through the heart of Minneapolis and St. Paul, offering incredible opportunities for wedding photos. The Science Museum of Minnesota in downtown St. Paul also offers views of the river as well as award-winning architecture and unforgettable museum exhibits. Duluth offers some of the most visited wedding venues in Minnesota, including the Marine Museum and the Great Lakes Aquarium, as well as plentiful wilderness to explore. Whether you'd like a chic urban winter wedding, or a rural country summer affair, Minnesota has it covered.
The cost of a wedding in Minnesota can vary widely, depending on when and where you hold your event. Weddings in the Twin Cities fall above the national average, while weddings in smaller cities or rural areas will be less expensive. Keep in mind that the season plays a big role in the cost, so if you're keeping an eye on your budget go for less popular times. Winter weddings can provide serious savings and off-season discounts on Minnesota wedding catering, music, and other services. When looking at cost, also consider the kind of food you'll be serving your guests. Regional favorites like Lefse-a Norwegian flatbread-or tots (you heard me!), can be whimsical and cost-effective starters. Serve Minnesota staples like walleye or Juicy Lucy burgers as fun, inexpensive alternatives to a conventional menu. Ending a winter wedding with Krumkake, a Norwegian waffle cookie, and butter coffee will send your guests home warm and satisfied without breaking the bank. Minnesota's growing music scene also means you can find the right music for your venue. Minnesota live wedding bands or a DJs will make your night, covering danceable music of all genres for a reasonable price.
