Trying to pick a wedding venue but overwhelmed by all the options?

Pick the word that best resonates with your wedding style and learn about venue types you might want to consider.


Choose a venue that celebrates all things nature-inspired, like a farm, ranch, barn or country inn.


An elegant venue, like a hotel ballroom, banquet hall, or country club is ideal for couples who want their wedding to have a traditional feel.


Explore historic homes or sites in your area – look for Art Deco architecture or other retro details.


Want a venue that’s totally out-of-the-box? Consider museums, zoos, aquariums, or even amusement parks!


Want to go glam? Consider hotel ballrooms or grand manors for that extra touch of sparkle.


Loft spaces and art galleries are ideal venues for a wedding with a contemporary vibe.


Think botanical gardens, historic homes with lush outdoor settings, or vineyards for a wedding setting that screams romance.


If you want your guests to toss off their shoes and party, the beach or a park feels laid-back and relaxed.


Dreaming of a preppy or nautical-themed wedding? Golf or yacht clubs are the ideal setting for these types of wedding.
