Museum Wedding Venues Near Me
Museum Wedding Venues Near Me
Art and culture as background to your wedding celebration? Maybe you should be looking into museum wedding venues near me (or you). Museum weddings can make for some amazing wedding photo backgrounds. They are also very different from your typical wedding venues (with some very specific restrictions that you should know about!).
Every museum wedding venue has its own rules and regulations from noise levels to no red wine or no sitting on the furniture. Be sure to ask during your tour what IS and what IS NOT allowed at your museum wedding venue of choice.
Some are very strict on their vendors with load-in instructions, timelines and load out restrictions (one venue actually told us we’d be charged $200 if we didn’t vacate the venue within 30 minutes of the end of the last song – it takes 20 minutes for guests to even get out of our way before we can start rolling out).
Some venues we have to bring additional staffing just to adhere to their regulations – which can mean a higher cost for you.
Don’t get me wrong – we love working at these venues. We tend to get better clientele and the images from these weddings can be stunning. You can also be limited to what you can do for custom lighting or decor options at your museum wedding. Give us a call or drop us an email and we can meet you at your venue and walk the space with you and your contact so that we all know the rules and regulations together.
What museum venue are you considering for your wedding? What drew you to it? Sometimes it’s near where you went to college or one of your professions drew you to it or the area. The more we know why you chose your venue, the better we understand it’s importance to you and your wedding plans and decor choices.
