The choice of ceremony venue has been switched up too! Less couples are getting married in a place of worship (just 25%!), and more couples are choosing to say "I do" in gorgeous gardens and unique spaces!

Did you choose a modern or traditional ceremony venue?

    I chose to go the modern route and say "I Do" and a Mediterranean style venue.

    Modern I guess, everything will be taking place at the our ballroom/ hotel venue. Part of the ball room will be sectioned off for the ceremony. Then the rest will be the reception area.

    A mix of both actually. There is a chapel on the grounds but we are hoping to have the ceremony outdoors by a waterfall.

    Modern. We got married at our venue in a gorgeous open-sided tent.

    Kind of both? It's more modern I guess. Our venue is a garden club, but the building they moved there is a hundred year old church that they re-purposed into an event space. So it has a traditional vibe even though it's no longer a religious space.

    Modern. Our venue is a converted garden center so our ceremony will be outside in the gardens, cocktail hour is in the greenhouse, and reception is in the ballroom.

    Our ceremony is taking place at FH's church - so traditional!

    Reception is on a farm though, so that part is modern.

    Traditional - we are getting married in a church. It’s actually the same church that both of my FH’s grandparents got married so it holds a lot of meaning to him. I’m not Catholic, but the church is my FH’s mother’s/grandmother’s wish and they are both such incredible women and have been so supportive of me in many ways that the least I could do was honor them/their wish.

    All modern. Ceremony on one floor of the brick industrial loft, cocktail on the rooftop overlooking downtown Kansas City, reception on a second floor of the loft and then the after party in the secret speakeasy in the building’s basement.

    I initially wanted to get married in a church, but we found such a gorgeous reception venue that having the ceremony there too was a no brainer! It’s easier to decorate as it’s outside in a garden and it’s much easier for guests to not have to drive.

    Modern. We're getting married outside in the woods behind a wedding barn and then the reception will be in the barn. 😊

    Modern. We aren't really church goers so to be married in a church just wouldn't feel right to either of us.
