18 Wedding Ceremony Venues That Double As Your Reception

Any bride-to-be knows that the only thing harder than figuring out your wedding budget is sticking to it. At the top of your tricky list of costs is no doubt the multiple venues you’re booking for your ceremony and reception. Rather than forking out the money for two places, we suggest embracing a much more wallet-friendly option of finding one site that’s got it all. Having a single locale for the whole shindig will be way easier on you and your guests, and you won’t waste any party time moving from one spot to another. Pick from these 18 gorg, all-in-one venues that offer everything you’ll need to tie the knot *AND* celebrate after.

1. Excelsior, Lancaster, PA: Getting married upstairs, then enjoying dinner and dancing downstairs is a great way to break up your big day without having far to go. And with tons of exposed brick and a full-on succulent wall, your photos will look absolutely stunning at this gem. (via Justin Tearney / Grey Likes Weddings)

2. Loft 310, Kalamazoo, MI: The possibilities are endless when you can invite up to 600 of your closest friends and family to celebrate your nuptials. This event space is bright, open, and totally customizable, so dress it up or keep it minimalist. (via Jamie and Sarah Photography)

3. Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Tabernash, CO: Talk about wide-open spaces. At this intimate outdoor oasis, you can say your vows with stunning mountains as your backdrop, and then walk over to your reception in a rustic barn.

5. Lightner Museum, St. Augustine, FL: The best thing about getting hitched at a museum is that the decor is already top-notch.
