Found on Found on The best marriage ceremonies are ones that guests talk about years later. They recall the magical ambiance that made them memorable, whether casual or formal. Every couple dreams that their day will be such an event, but may be stumped about what it takes to actually make it one. Looking at various wedding venues is the place to start making that dream a lasting memory.
A company that has access to a multitude of areas is ideal. For a memorable day, guests need to see more than photos of the bride and groom as children, or hear more than a special song for the couple while sipping punch in a box-like room filled with flowers. When guests arrive, they must forget they are entering a rented accommodation. Instead, they must feel they are entering a private world, one that only a select few have permission to enter. This can't be achieved with a generic space.
Outdoor ceremonies usually allow for a more relaxed structure, with guests lounging on comfortable chairs or even standing for the ceremony. The natural surroundings evoke a romantic mood framed by a vast sky, highlighted by a structure such as a terrace or a stretch of land by the water. Tents can also be an interesting way to harness this ambiance. The food in outdoor wedding venues can include both casual and formal fare. In fact, outside doesn't mean only causal. An outdoor ceremony is simply a ceremony that takes place in an outside space among the beauty of nature. It can be as formal or casual as desired.
Inside ceremonies can be formal or causal as well. If a couple wants to have a full sit-down dinner with more traditional dancing, an indoor space is probably best. A banquet room or ballroom make excellent choices. Both spaces offer superb acoustics for music so when it's time to hit the floor guests are ready to dance. Also, so much can be done with indoor spaces in terms of lighting and color. High ceilings can be draped with flowing fabric, and ice sculptures placed in various corners. Indoor spaces also make it easier to preserve food and personal appearances if the weather is warm. This is something to consider for photos.
Another thing to consider is whether or not the space should be vintage or modern. Both types of wedding venues are available as long a they're booked well in advance, and both types can provide the desired atmosphere if enough details are given by the couple.
And speaking of booking in advance: it's the only way to get the right space. In the summer, wedding venues fill-up quickly. If there's a particular spot that a couple has in mind, hesitation is sure fire way to guarantee losing it. That would be a shame because it would mean the special day might not be memorable for the right reasons. To make the dream a good memory, couples need to book well in advance.
