Modern Brides & Grooms Say "I Do" To Non-Traditional Venues


Thu, 09/13/2018

The new Fall Issue is FREE for planners & includes 64+ pages of news, tips and profiles

JOHNSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA (September 13, 2018) - According to a recent report in The Knot, there is a strong downturn in the choice for formal weddings (a decrease of nearly 16% in 2017) as more and more modern couples opt to begin their union in unique ways. Citing reasons including budget, more creative freedom, longer use of the venue, and more picturesque spots, many brides and grooms have been moving toward non-traditional options for wedding ceremonies and receptions.

The members of Unique Venues provide ample opportunity for one-of-a-kind weddings. From pirate ship bars that cost $7 to get hitched to aquariums with stunning backdrops and historic museums, the Fall Issue of Unique Venues magazine is devoted to exposing these memorable spots that allow couples the chance to "vow to be different."

"Weddings, much like other remarkable life moments, are so different now. The idea of borrowed and blue is replaced by one-of-a-kind and colorful, with moments that truly reflect how much young adults are keen to carve their own way in life and set their own rules," says Unique Venues CEO Chuck Salem. "Non-traditional venues fall perfectly in line with modern couples' needs and ethos, and continue to fill the gaps where traditional venues can sometimes fall short."

In addition to this featured article, the new Fall Issue has 64-plus pages full of rich content targeted to planners, including a look at the trend of renting meeting rooms by the hour, a tour through six incredible Chicago-area venues, and a feature dedicated to a growing focus on social responsibility that has become a mission of many venues.
