Your going to make any place special. I am in the same boat, I’m super emotional and sentimental too! I went with a hotel I just stumbled appon, and luckily my FH loves it too, it make things a lot easier when deciding. I thought the hotel would be perfect, what I find fun about this place too is being able to go back and stay at the hotel on anniversaries and there’s a restaurant thats amazing, we could just do dinner dates there too!
Your wedding has a lot of firsts so even though you may not have attachment to a location now, you'd've created a beautiful 1st memory of that place on your wedding day and it'll become sentimental and meaningful as the years go on. I have no attachment to my venues but I chose them because I know they soon will be and that neighborhood suddenly becomes more significant after vows are exchanged
I ditto this! What better way to make a place more sentimental than getting married in it! My FH and I use to drive past our venue all the time, never thinking about it, now when we drive by it it always makes us smile and get so excited!!
Not at all. The importance will be the act of getting married. That will make it a sentimental spot for you.
If you already have a sentimental spot (church, school, etc), you can look into it, but I wouldn't feel like it's necessary to go somewhere familiar. We got married at an alumni venue on a university campus. If two people had met at that school, I could see it being romantic, but it had no meaning to us aside from it was part of the reception venue we loved.
I’m a very sentimental person as well. My husband and I have “a park” and I looked at getting married there but it was not a good place for a wedding! We ended up falling in love with a place completely different and got married there. I don’t regret getting married somewhere we had never been! The photos are gorgeous, the space was beautiful and the right size. And now, that place has become sentimental to me. I like that we have another place now! Our park is still our park for those reasons, and now this place is special because it’s where we got married.
No. You will make memories at a place this is something you like. As long as it's pleasing to look at, the food is amazing and the people seem great, go for it. Your memories will form there regardless.
You will stress yourself out if you base it on a place that HAS to mean something for you. It will end up meaning something either way!
Do you have a sentimental place in mind? My partner wanted to get married in a park near his childhood home, but I had some concerns. We looked at a lot of other wedding venues, all of which could have been great. He eventually told me he had always imagined marrying me in the park, he had grown up playing there and it inspired his career choice, and he had actually brought me there when he was thinking of proposing. In the end, we decided to do it in the park. I still have concerns (like no weather plan B!) but we will make it work because I know it's important to him.
Nope! I think it would be nice if you love the place where you're getting married but that certainly is not always the case. The important thing at the end of the day is that you're going to marry the one you love and celebrate! (My location is not special to me whatsoever fyi).
Uh. No. Not at all. The location MUST be whatever you want. I feel like you know how folks say God is everywhere? Well so is a wedding venue. You make it what you want it however you can, with whatever means you have.
No, I chose the hall as it was very versatile to have both ceremony and reception at the same spot. Plus bringing your own catering in and alcohol and have bartenders within the cost of the hall, plus the hall was under $600
I don't think so. We picked our venue because it checked every box on our list of requirements. We had never stepped foot in that venue before the visit.
I don't think so! I mean, most venues for weddings - people have never even stepped foot in! I'm thinking that either the ceremony location could be a church that you grew up going to or he did - or maybe a park that you guys frequented for dates?
Overall it's not that important to me because if it was then we wouldn't have anywhere to hold the wedding!!
We are getting married in a church as he wanted to get married in his. Otherwise I would have picked a diff place I loved that could do ceremony and reception. If you don't have any places with meaning I wouldn't worry. Its about you and the big day!
