Find Out What Wedding Venue Type is Right for You
A Loft Venue

You're creative at your core, so the idea of a blank slate is an exciting one! A loft venue allows you to craft your wedding from the ground up with only the details that matter to you. Whether you lean into the industrial setting with modern minimalist decor or fill the space with lush florals, greenery, and an eclectic assortment of your favorite things, a loft venue is the perfect base for the wedding of your dreams! Get inspired by this chic Norwegian wedding at Lageret Studio in Oslo, this burgundy and black fall wedding inspiration at Papiermuhle Homurg, and this handmade Strongwater wedding that's chock full of personality! photo cred: The Shannons Photography
A Garden Venue

You've got a dreamy, romantic, lush wedding in your future hosted at a beautiful garden venue! Let the flowers and venue grounds take the main stage in your wedding design as you punctuate your day with vintage, bohemian, or whimsical details. Though your venue is already filled with fresh blooms, we recommend adding a stellar florist to your vendor team who can complement the existing florals with handcrafted pieces just for you. Get inspired by this dreamy botanical Woodson Ridge Farms wedding, this enchanted Charlotte garden wedding at The Duke Mansion, and this nontraditional Irish wedding at Mount Juliet Estate with a gothic twist. photo cred: Cody & Allison Photography
A Lodge Venue

You love the idea of a rustic wedding but you're not sold on saying "I do" in a barn. A lodge venue is the perfect alternative! If you're getting hitched in the fall or winter, fill your venue with cozy details like velvet, seasonal greenery, and a hot cocoa bar. If you're tying the knot in the spring or summer, don't be afraid to take cues from summer camp with nostalgic callbacks to traditional camp activities and handmade signage. Get inspired by this rugged chic fall wedding inspiration at Scribner's Catskill Lodge, this natural and neutral Hornby Island wedding at Sea Breeze Lodge, and this Nashville camp wedding that's full of fall tones. photo cred: Swak Photography
A Villa Venue

Your upcoming wedding is sure to be pure elegance at a villa venue! Villas are known for being naturally beautiful backdrops thanks to their European-inspired architecture and Old World style. This makes villas great for two reasons. On one hand, simple details and greenery go a long way because the venue doesn't need a lot to feel decorated. On the other, you have an already gorgeous setting to pull inspiration from as you transform your venue into something uniquely you. Get inspired by both in the following real weddings: Villa Antonia gave this elegant Texas wedding California winery vibes, this lavish yet laid-back Tuscan wedding at Villa Passerini, and this Tuscan-inspired California wedding at The Villa San Juan Capistrano. photo cred: Plum & Oak Photo
