A space wedding is a dream for many couples. They love the idea of taking a step into the unknown and bringing their guests with them to celebrate their union. But planning a space wedding can be an overwhelming experience if you don’t know where to start. The good news is that Tonia Adleta, owner & creative director of Aribella Events has planned weddings in all sorts of ‘unweddingy’ spaces and she’s here to share her top tips for finding inspiration and planning the logistics for your own raw space.
The first thing to consider is your budget. This is a key factor in whether a space wedding is right for you and your family. If you’re on a tight budget, you’ll want to make sure that the venue is in a good location and offers a variety of catering options.
Another important consideration is the size of the space. You’ll want to be able to fit all of your guests in the venue without having to leave anyone out. Fortunately, there are several options for large venues that can accommodate a wide range of guest counts.
One option for a large wedding is to hire multiple blocks of rooms at the same venue. This can be a great way to give your guests different experiences while staying within your budget.
In addition to choosing the best size for your space, you’ll need to think about how you’ll get people from each block to the ceremony and reception. For example, if you’re having your ceremony at a warehouse and the reception at a rustic barn, you may need to provide shuttles to get people to and from both venues.
It’s also essential to decide how you’ll keep everyone comfortable during your wedding. You’ll need to think about things like air conditioning and heating, as well as how the venue will be set up for guests during ceremonies and receptions.
When it comes to decorations, you can be as artistic or as simple as you want. Whether you’re planning to decorate the room yourself or have a wedding planner do it, there are plenty of ways to add your own unique touch to an industrial warehouse or rustic barn.
If you’re unsure about how to decorate your space, be sure to look for examples online or contact a professional. They’ll be able to help you determine what types of decorations will work best for your space and how they will be displayed.
You’ll also want to make sure that the lighting is bright enough and that it will be able to be controlled by you or your wedding planner. If the room is too dark, it can create a dark and intimidating atmosphere for your guests.
There are many other factors to consider, including how much parking is available and how easy it is for guests to find the venue. Having all of these factors considered before you start shopping will help you find the perfect space for your big day.
