On 4 Feb | '2021
If you’re on the hunt for wedding ceremony location ideas, we feel you! Deciding on your wedding ceremony location is a huge decision. It’s where you’ll say your wedding vows and officially start your lives together. It goes without saying that wedding ceremonies and beautiful locations go hand in hand.
The vast majority of brides and grooms picture themselves saying “I do” in a postcard-worthy location. However, as it’s known, there’s the wedding you’re planning on Pinterest 😂 and the one you’re planning in real life! Today on the blog we’re looking at a variety of wedding ceremony location ideas and their pros and cons.
First things first…do you have a wedding theme?
The theme for your wedding will no doubt set the tone for your ceremony location. For example, if you’re hosting your reception at a beachside café, a ceremony on the sand may be just the ticket. On the other hand, perhaps you’d like the locations for your ceremony and reception to be completely different which is fine too! Your wedding can be whatever you make it because it’s your day!
