You can google venues in your area. Zoos, musuems, office buildings, ect… Minnesota is a fairly large state so we really cannot help you.

folske8 :  So many different options. What type of vision do you have?

If you like history, there may be a historical site or museum. If you like sea life, maybe an aquarium. You can look into non-denominational chapels. If you’re looking for rustic, maybe horse stables, a log cabin, or resort. If you are into theatrics, a small theater. Perhaps a quaint little bed and breakfast.

Check out local universities! They usually have some sort of historic home / hall that can be used for weddings. Our local university rents out a historic hall with marble floors and original gold flaked ceilings by donation.

folske8 :  We got married in a historic meeting house in our city. At one time it was a church, but is now museum/historical site. I liked that it had the formal feel of a church, but wasn’t one, as my husband isn’t religious and were raised in different religious backgrounds. Brother-In-Law and his wife similarly got married in an old stone chapel that isn’t used for religious services any longer.

Are you in the twin cities or further out?  Minneapolis City Hall is beautiful!  And they do ceremonies even if you don’t have the reception there.  I know people also really like the Como Park Conservatory and the Women’s Club of Mpls.  Hotels also will let you use their space even if the reception isn’t there (sometimes). 

This is a good comprehensive list too:  http://www.affordableidos.com/wedding-links/wedding-ceremony-locations/

Your city or county might have some rentable indoor space. I agree with PP about looking at local universities for building space. They oftentimes have some amazing architecture.
