A home wedding is the ultimate choice for a traditional bride. You can get ready for your big day in your childhood bedroom, and have one final night (As a single woman) in your parents home.

PRO: A home wedding can be extremely cost efficient, and you can eliminate many excessive venue rental fees.

CON: This intimate option may limit your guest list. You may not have adequate space, or even parking, for a huge guest list.

Religious Space

Utilizing a religious space for your wedding is great for traditionalists. You, and your family, are most likely extremely familiar with your officiant, and your ceremony can be extremely personable.

PRO: There's a great sense of familiarity in your personal religious space.

CON: Some religious spaces may have restrictions in terms of your dress, music selections, and beverage services.

Hotel

Hotels can be a great one stop shop wedding venue option. Your event planner will provide you with a wedding space, catering, decor, and lodging options.

PRO: Almost everything that you will need for your wedding will be available in one space.

CON: Hotel weddings can be a bit generic and not as personable.

Banquet/Event Space

VERY similar to hotels, event spaces (or banquet halls as they were once known) can be a one stop shop for any wedding or event.

PRO: Almost everything that you will need for your wedding will be in one space, however in comparison to hotels, most event spaces are not as expensive.

CON: Maybe everything is not available. Some banquet spaces only provide a space, tables, and chairs, and everything else (Catering, decor, etc) may be up to you to obtain.

Courthouse

For an extremely low maintenance bride, heading to a judge's chamber can be ideal.

PRO: Hands down, the MOST affordable wedding venue option.

CON: There won't be a big "wedding" per se.
