@thunderberry:  Library, museum, zoo, garden club, etc… It really depends on where you and what your budget is.

you might have to keep looking for a different venue or if you are set on that venue.  can they have the ceremony and reception in the larger room, cocktail hour in the lobby or something and use that time to set up?

i am jewish and having a jewish wedding.  our venue offers 2 separate rooms to have the ceremony and reception.

I would try and find a place that has some meaning to you and your FI if possible. I’ve seen weddings done in museums, libraries, schools, etc. Here people often have ceremonies in the state capitol building. I’ve also seen people rent out rooms in historical homes that are ornate and beautiful.

Here’s a couple inspiration pictures for you:

FI and I felt the same way. We (I, lol) decided on one of our local auditoriums. This particular building has an incredibly beautiful room on the 3rd floor that is used for wedding ceremonies and other smaller events. It also worked out well for us because the room almost has a chapel-like feel to it that will make the more religious members of the family happy. Sometimes its good to think outside the box! I also love the musem idea! Here are some pics from our venue! Only 32 days to go!

@pixiestix6089:  that is gorgeous! I would love to find something like that around here.. your ceremony will be beautiful.

 

 

@thunderberry:  I’m in a similar situation, so I’m not much help. But if I think of anything, I’ll pass it on.

Could you rent a tent and have the ceremony or cocktail hour under the tent outside your venue?
