If you’re not a conventional type and want something different for your special day, there are plenty of unusual yet amazing wedding venues that can enable you to have your dream wedding. From historic libraries to romantic orchards, here are the top places to tie the knot, for those who want a unique start to their life together.
A literary wedding
If you’re picturing a sophisticated celebration of your love, then a historic library might be the ideal venue for your wedding. Libraries are quite spacious and characterized by amazing architecture and historic and antique details. If you’re an avid reader and enjoy literature, then getting married among some of the greatest literary romantics of all time is the perfect way to start out your own love story. Dive into your favorite novels once again to find inspiration on how to plan your wedding. The lavish parties portrayed in the Great Gatsby might serve as a great idea for your art-deco wedding.
If you’ve always wanted to get married surrounded by nature and beautiful flowers, then consider saying your vows in a botanical garden. These gardens contain an array of the most gorgeous blooms, delightful fountains, winding paths surrounded by trees, interesting sculptures or a greenhouse, where both the ceremony and the reception can take place. You won’t have to worry a lot about how to decorate the interior, as everything is pretty much already set up – loads of greenery and glass ceilings. What more could a bride want?
On the stage
If you love a Shakespearean vibe, then getting married in a theatre might be the ideal backdrop to your cultural wedding. You won’t have to worry about how to incorporate drinks, as most theatres already offer refreshments (including alcoholic beverages) during breaks between plays, so you may even be able to set up a bar. Another option is to get married in an amphitheatre, where you can enjoy the fresh air and have a romantic setup for the most important event of your life.
A sporty vibe with a magnificent view
If you’re looking for a fancy venue with a stunning view, or a chance to get married among the green fields, consider tying the knot at one of the amazing golf club wedding venues. You can host an indoor or a terrace celebration and treat your guests with the finest menu and service. The best part is the breathtaking view of nature and its surroundings.
A rustic orchard
You can hardly find a more romantic atmosphere than the one of an apple orchard in autumn. The golden rays of the sun mixed with the fiery colors of leaves and the soothing sounds of nature are the perfect way to proclaim your eternal love for each other. What is more, orchards already have a long history of being a wedding a venue, so many of them offer accommodation and some wedding-related activities. Also, you can have a romantic carriage ride with your spouse and indulge in that rustic feel.

Under the sea
This is quite an extravagant wedding venue option, intended for deep sea diving enthusiasts and ocean lovers. If you and your partner share a boundless love of water, getting married in an aquarium can be a way to have your own enchantment under the sea. Some aquariums provide the option to hold your ceremony inside a fish tank for a true underwater feel. If you plan to invite a large number of guests, you can communicate through the tank’s window via written signs to let them know how the ceremony is going and what’s coming next.
Take inspiration from these ideas and start your “happily ever after” in your own, unique way.
