Selecting a wedding venue is no easy feat. Practically every detail of your nuptials hinges upon the location – remember, you don’t even have a set wedding date until your venue contract is signed and your guest list might depend on the capacity, etc. – so we advise you take this decision quite seriously. While the wedding planning process as a whole can produce some stressful situations, finding a venue that fits your budget, is the right size, and exudes the right motif you’re going for can be one of the more difficult tasks you will face. It’s important to do your research and see what places particularly inspire you. Enter: the museum.

Modern brides and grooms have started to make a trend out of holding their weddings at local museums. Depending on the specific location, a museum can evoke a number of different motifs for your event – from rustic-chic to glitzy and glamorous, a museum venue can add just a touch of edge and contemporary flair to your special day.
