Wedding : 10 original venues for your wedding reception


Looking to surprise your guests? Take a step off the beaten path and invite them to celebrate your union in a unexpected location. Here are 10 original suggestions for a unique wedding reception.


1 - At home 

Make yourself at home ! Your house is a reflection of your relationship, and a space where you feel comfortable. For an intimate, simple gathering, your own home is a perfect choice. With the money you’ll save on the venue, think about hiring a cleaning team that will bring your cocoon back to its former glory once the celebration is over.


2 - At the cottage

This option offers the same advantages as your house, complete with a rustic touch that will charm the outdoorsy types. As a whimsical late-night snack, prepare a s’mores bar by the fire pit!


3 - At a restaurant

Take your guests down memory lane by inviting them to the restaurant where you had your first date. Some restaurants offer special menus for events such as weddings – ask your favorite bistro what they have to offer.


4 - On a boat

What’s more original than a floating reception hall? A refined ambiance, a five-star service, and breathtaking views…A cruise your family and friends will never forget!


5 - In a vineyard

An exhilarating night in a rural, enchanting scenery. Plan a wine tasting to start off the festivities – your guests will be charmed!
