I’m looking at the local aquarium for mine; I would recommend a museum, historic building, or some type of public/open space.  

 

UU churches often have many atheist and agnostic members and are willing to perform weddings for non-members, so if you’re fine with that, that’s still an option.

I’m marrying in a hotel which used to be a Masonic girls school – they have this amazing hall – high ceilings, wood panelling, stained glass windows. I figure I’m getting the ease of a hotel wedding without it being in a generic ballroom. It was important to me to not get married in a church.

We just had ours in the same room as we had our reception; we were married on the dance floor in front of everyone, then we cleared out, they brought in the food.

Museums and libraries might also let you do your wedding there (I live near an enormous, glamorous art museum, which is why I bring it up). We just attended a wedding at a war memorial recently, ironically enough…the grounds were beautiful and the ballroom was rented out.

We are having the ceremony and reception at a historic mansion. It’s the headquarters for a professional organization. We have the original dining room and front parlor and a couple other spaces to use as we want.
