Here's a really neat venue option… a theater! Lots of stage space, seating and a funky atmosphere to boot! Take a look at some other offbeat venues like cave weddings or movie theater weddings or even zoo weddings!
The offbeat bride: Julee, Theatre Education Director
Her offbeat partner: Ross, Actor/Director/Playwright
Location & date of wedding: Nashville Children's Theatre in Nashville, TN on May 17, 2008
What made our wedding offbeat: We made a conscious effort for our wedding to be simple, DIY and to rebel against the industry.
It really felt like a party — which is exactly what we wanted!
We wanted a fun party where no one stressed. Since we are in the theatre industry, we had the help of actors/designers/technicians to help up prep for our wedding onstage and for the reception in the entire theatre.
Our biggest challenge: We really worked to keep the budget low and not be swept up into extras. Our priority was just enjoying the party with our friends and it all worked out!
My favorite moment: When the kiss came, we threw the disco ball onstage and blasted the music. It really felt like a party — which is exactly what we wanted!
My offbeat advice: Find ways that make the day belong to you and your guests. The day is about everyone in your lives — not just the bride! Don't stress either, no one will even know if something doesn't go as planned — and those are the best stories so look forward to what unexpected things will happen!
