Your wedding day is one of the most memorable and special days of your life. Selecting your wedding venue and a coordinating theme is one of the most important and challenging tasks you’ll have as a bride. Once you have the theme, you can move on and complete the other planning details.

There are many different directions you can go, so remain open-minded in the beginning stages when you’re going over options and discussing ideas with your partner. Review a few unique wedding venue ideas to help you brainstorm your choice and determine which may be best for you and your future spouse.


A rustic approach is one unique wedding venue theme that you can add to your list of possibilities. Picture a chic and intimate barn where your guests can gather for a rural experience. You can decorate with items such as string lights, mason jars, twine, and lace. The theme and vibe are simple and homey, so be sure to incorporate a lot of wood into your décor and design.   

Garden Party / Casual

If you prefer a more casual setting and enjoy being outside, then you may want to opt for a garden party. The ceremony can be more intimate and laid-back this way. The theme is best suitable for a spring or summer wedding date. You can host it in your own backyard or choose a park in the area that is meaningful to you and has a beautiful setting.


A wedding is certainly a romantic event as the main purpose is to celebrate the love you share between you and your partner. Therefore, consider a romantic wedding venue theme if you’re a hopeless romantic and want to have all the feels on your wedding day. You can achieve this goal by using soft hues, delicate lighting, and plenty of florals. Complete the look by including pastels, hanging lights or chandeliers, calligraphy, and a flower wall.

Formal / Traditional

You may be envisioning all of your guests dressed in their best formal wear. In this case, you’ll want to consider hosting a black-tie wedding as your theme. If your guests are going to go all out, then you have to as well. You’ll want to make the event as grandiose as possible with a full sit-down dinner and table settings, posh seating covers, and elaborate flower arrangements throughout the venue and on the cake. You’ll also want to arrange for an impressive head table.   


Finally, another unique wedding venue theme to add to your list of options is a vintage-style affair. It’s a wise choice if you have a desire to draw inspiration from decades past. One of the ideal ways to ensure you pull this off is through your bridal beauty, style, and dress. As for the reception and ceremony, you’ll want to use antique-looking décor. Think along the lines of weathered doors, worn-in wood seats, and driving away in a classic looking getaway car.

No matter which venue and theme you choose, have fun planning and making it your own.
