How many wedding venues?

How many different venues or locations are you using on your wedding day? Do you have a different ceremony and reception venue? Are you using different rooms at the same venue for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception? What about your getting ready location?

    We are using three different locations all at the same venue and a different venue for getting ready. We are getting ready at a local hotel right down the street from the venue. Ceremony is outside in the gardens of the venue, cocktail hour is in the greenhouse, and reception is in the main room.

    Right now it's one. He wants to get married in a church though, so it may be two. I think one is fine, especially for the cost savings.

    Getting ready at the hotel next to the venue. Our venue for ceremony and reception is all at one location. Ceremony on the deck, cocktail hour on the terrace, dinner indoors and then dancing back on the deck!

    Same venue but four locations at that venue. Ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing were each in different rooms or areas.

    We have one for everything. We have a lot of people traveling and love the outdoors so we wanted a place we could hang out for the weekend. Some friends and family are staying on the camp in the cabins with us and some are getting hotels/air bnb's depending on their comfort level. Our makeup/hair artist will be coming to us to get ready there Smiley smile

    One venue, but 3 different areas of the venue for the different parts of the night. I will be getting hair and makeup at my sisters house, and then actually putting on the dress at the venues bridal room.

    Just one! We will arrive at about 10am to do a quick rehearse, eat lunch, and start getting ready in our bridal suite and groom suite (there is also a third suite for family!) We will have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all inside at the same venue

    We have 2 separate venues, one is our ceremony on the mountain and the other is a reception at one of our favorite restaurants.

    Two total locations plus the salon - our ceremony venue was an old mansion so we had the entire second floor for the bridal party to get ready, and the first floor for guests to mingle and for the ceremony. Our reception venue was a theater & conference center, so the cocktail hour was in the lobby/holding area, and our reception was in the ballroom.

    We will have 4 different locations! Our first will be the Air BNB we will get ready at, the second will be the church, the third will be a park we are taking pictures at and the 4th will be the reception ballroom! The reception is at a hotel so we will be staying the night there as well.

    We are using 3 different spaces at the same venue and a different venue for getting ready. The girls are getting ready at a local hotel down the street. Ceremony is outside in the garden over looking a waterfall, cocktail hour is in the butterfly atrium and reception is in the great room as well as outside in the garden.

    Two only! We fell in love with the first one! But I also have to say that I did sooo much research online before hand.

    4? Haha. Ceremony, cocktail and reception are all in the same outdoor patio. Getting ready will be at a nice hotel up the road and then we’re going to have his sister take pictures at the chair lifts. Four b/c we’re having an after party on Main Street.
