How To Pick A Themed Wedding Reception Venue


When it comes to planning a themed wedding reception, the venue can make or break the experience. The right reception space will add to the overall ambiance of the event without breaking your event budget. If your ideal venue is a bit more expensive than you planned, you can always cut back on decor pieces or use more affordable options, such as faux flowers instead of fresh blooms.

If the perfect venue is way out of your budget, you can always transport your guests there through the right lighting, centerpieces, and other decor elements. In that instance, look for a basic venue, such as a reception hall, that you can easily personalize. 

Here are some wedding venues to consider according to theme:

Tropical Theme 

The ultimate place to hold a tropical-themed wedding reception is a beach with white sand beach and palm trees. If you don't live in Florida or on an island, and can't afford to travel for the big day, you can work with a lake beach if you have one nearby. 

To help create a tropical feel no matter what type of beach you're on, cover the tables in linens featuring vibrantly hued, island-inspired shades of turquoise blue, banana yellow, coral, or lime green. If you prefer a more elegant look, stick to white, sea blue, and sand colors. 

Fill large cylindrical vases with seashells and nestle pillar candles in them as centerpieces. An another option, use vases filled with tropical blooms, such as Birds of Paradise and hibiscus instead. 

Country Theme 

If your reception has a relaxed, country theme, there's no better place to hold it than in a barn. If you or a close friend or family member don't have a farm, you can rent a barn for the evening. They typically come empty, so that you can decorate them any way you'd like.

For a country-chic look, hang vintage chandeliers from the barn rafters and fill Mason jars with white and pink sweetheart roses to double as place setting decor and guest favors. If you prefer a more laid-back feel, hang black wrought iron candle lanterns instead and swap the roses for wildflowers. 

Vintage Theme 

Vintage-themed wedding receptions have a timeless look and plenty of charm. There are a variety of old-fashioned event venues you can roll up in a horse and carriage or a vintage car to, including bed and breakfast inns, museums, and homes that are on the National Registry of Historic Places. 

If you and your spouse-to-be are are film buffs, consider holding the event in a restored silent movie theater or any other vintage cinema space.
