Think Outside the Ballroom

We all know the usual suspects when it comes to venues for your event: churches, hotels, gardens, even dedicated event spaces.  But what about venues for the less traditional hosts?  There's a plethora of locales that are less typical and could be perfect for your next event.  Why not think outside the hotel ballroom?
Have your wedding at a public building like a library.  Many of these older buildings are architectural works of art and need few embellishments to set the mood.

With beautiful marine life as a back-drop, you'll save big time by hosting your event at an aquarium.

Science and art museums also offer a wonderful and interesting back-drop for your event.  For a more personal touch, find a particular exhibit that speaks to you.  It's a great way to personalize your event and give your guests some eye-candy.

Zoos can be fun and playful venues for children's events or corporate events that need to have some levity injected into them.  Just make sure the buffet isn't too close to the cages. The smells might not mix so well.

Ever thought of having your next party at a professional sports venue?  How perfect for the #1 fan in your life!

National parks, like Yosemite, offer beautiful natural settings for your next event.
