honeylamb:  Book it! (No pun intended). Really, even if you have to limit the ceremony, I say do it. It’s gorgeous and completely unique. Plus bookstores are one of the most romantic places on the planet earth.

honeylamb:  I LOVE the idea! It looks very quaint and that tin ceiling is cool! My husband probably would’ve loved it. He’s the major bookworm. There’s a cool library here that I found out has weddings. Very formal, but so pretty! I say go for it!

It looks beautiful.  I love quaint bookstores. It has such character (no pun intended) lol.

Do they even do weddings though? I’d be worried about booking a place that isn’t used to hosting large events like that.  They might not even be willing to. 

Ps. great spot for an engagement shoot if you can’t do the wedding there.

honeylamb:  Yep, those are definitely beautiful, but “I’ve never not gone to both a wedding and reception“.  There’s a reason for that. It’s because it’s not acceptable to invite people to one and not the other. Or I should say, In the US, there are VERY few reasons why it might be acceptable, and having a non-traditional venue isn’t one of them. You can do it, of course, but people will be confused and hurt, and rightfully so. If you have a small wedding and small reception (with the same people), no harm no foul.

That would be my dream venue! Well, an awesome bookstore like that or a library. I’m not picky as long as there’s a wall of books involved. I actually found a beautiful library in Philadelphia that does weddings but, alas, it’s out of our budget. I really hope you can make that happen! If not, what about engagement photos there?

If you do have to limit your guest list for the ceremony, consider having a reception for them (maybe a nice dinner out) and a separate celebration later for everyone you couldn’t invite. My Fiance and I are planning a small wedding for family only but want to do something to celebrate with friends too, so we might just have an open house party the weekend after our wedding where anyone and everyone can come by to celebrate.
