Are you wondering if you should have your ceremony in a place of worship or the same venue as your reception? There are pros and cons to both choices!
A church, synagogue, or temple ceremony offers a traditional service for your ceremony. For some brides, a ceremony in the place of worship of your family holds a very personal meaning and allows for traditions such as holding mass. A place of worship is also typically set up for a ceremony with pews or chairs, so there is less set up.
The cons of having a religious venue for your ceremony is that you will have to travel from the ceremony site to the reception site. But you can make this fun by hiring a fun means of transportation like a trolley for your entire bridal party! Another con is that some places of worship do not allow for certain decorations such as flowers or candles, though this can also be seen as a plus sense it will save on costs!
We have some amazing venues as preferred vendors that are great spaces for both your ceremony and your reception.
