For some brides, a traditional wedding venue just won't fit the bill. So, if you are looking for an outside the box venue, theme, setting or décor - why not consider the perks of a blank canvas wedding venue? With so many varied settings and amenities at your fingertips from seaside to golf resorts, rustic mountain lodges to lakeside summer camps, social halls to grand ballrooms or barns to farms there are endless options. But with this pretty in pink styled shoot out of Pennsylvania with Heather O'Steen Photography and Jieru Photography we want to put the spotlight on the perks of a blank canvas wedding venue. Take the Pomme in Pennsylvania for instance with its woodsy-chic setting surrounded by woodlands offering an open floor plan. It's rustic, chic, natural and most of all unique enough for you to adapt to your own vision. Anything but cookie cutter. Get ready to break down what we think are some top reasons for considering a blank canvas wedding venue.

Perks of a Blank Canvas Wedding Venue

If you want to allow for your creativity then the perks of a blank canvas wedding venue may have this reason at the very top. An open space venue lends itself toward more ability in the transformation of the area through your décor. Blank walls and floors that can fade into the background allowing for a bold or soft color palette to take over. You have more options in revamping the space and making it totally your own. Just remember to get the green light from your planner or venue manager before paying for any big installations or décor pieces. You don't want to get told the day of that the light fixtures cannot be hung on the rafters or the fabric draping is against fire code. Which brings up one very savvy tip. Be sure to check on which vendors can be brought in. You do not want to be locked into the venue's referrals. Another perk to a blank canvas wedding venue is that you can use the single location for both ceremony and reception. Sticking with a single venue keeps the logistics simple for everyone involved. Arrive at one place, then relax and enjoy without the transportation worries. Lastly, the price is right especially if you consider the one location with only one site fee. Think about it too as you are only decorating and putting all of your efforts into one venue giving you optimal privacy and intimacy for your wedding day.
