According to 2018 and 2019 trends, weddings held at ballrooms and huge mansions are all the rage. An indoor wedding venue such as a ballroom or mansion can be the ultimate choice for your nuptials if you would prefer a venue that will not be affected by harsh weather, expensive tents, or early instances of guest exits. The states with the most ballroom weddings and the states with the most mansion weddings are helping to make these types of weddings popular so it is expected that more millennials will opt for unique wedding venues in the future.
Why you Should Consider a Ballroom or Mansion Wedding
The cost of a mansion wedding and the cost of a ballroom wedding are relatively low compared to traditional wedding venues. For instance, since both the venue and the reception will be held in one place, couples do not have to worry about looking for more than one wedding venue or dealing with multiple vendor contracts because these venues often offer all-in-one service for both the ceremony and the reception. Most venues will also supply a professional onsite coordinator to walk the couple through all the little details of their big day. Some more benefits of ballroom and mansion weddings include:
Ballrooms and Mansions are Flexible
With so much already included in a ballroom or mansion package, it may not be necessary to invest heavily in décor. Most of these venues are sophisticated enough that they do not need any additional décor to stand out; you only need to make a few additions to personalize your space. Be sure to ask the ballroom or mansion if they have any special partnerships with local wedding vendors to make your event as perfect as you can.
Couples that are getting married cannot ignore the possibility of severe weather on their special day. Unlike most rural or garden settings, ballrooms and mansions come equipped with all the amenities such as air conditioning, indoor bathrooms, and ceilings so that your guests can be comfortable throughout your ceremony and reception.
