- The Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine. Take a 20-minute drive outside Portland to this meticulously restored 19th-century barn, which is open year-round. There’s also a cozy farmhouse perfect for unwinding with your wedding party pre- and post-nuptials;
- The Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta, Georgia In the heart of Midtown, you’ll find this historic landmark, which features an ivy-lined garden and two gilded ballrooms that are over-the-top in the best way possible;
- The White Sparrow Barn in Quinlan, Texas A beautiful white barn with built-in speakers and vintage rentals? Nadine Ramos Huerta, a wedding photographer, created this spot in 2014 (with space for endless photo ops, obvi!);
- Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan This resort is known for its front porch, which spans the length of nearly two football fields and overlooks Lake Huron;
- Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis in St. Louis, Missouri
- The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California The property’s gilded chapels and ornate ballrooms attract couples after old-world charm in SoCal. Not to mention, this place has been hosting weddings for more than a century.
- Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona The resort's lush gardens will make you forget you're in the Arizona desert. Gawk at the mountain views while you sample fare from celebrity chef Beau MacMillan;
My fiancé and I are planning our wedding in central Iowa near Des Moines. We live in northern IA, and all our guests are coming from Omaha, Kansas City, and the Quad Cities. So essentially we are planning a destination wedding since everybody is an out of town guest. We want to have our ceremony more intimate and smaller than our reception. We’re thinking about 100 ceremony and 300 reception. So anyways we have set up a wedding website with Zola and you can create the timeline of events for your guests and it shows all the details like time and place etc. So we really want to utilize this feature so that our guests have the time and place of our big events, time of breakfast the day after, and rehearsal the night before without having to keep track of the paper invitation they stuck on the fridge. BUT is it tacky or inconsiderate to have the ceremony or rehearsal on the website for everybody to view if not everybody is invited? And what would be a good way to have a complete schedule of events without having people showing up to things they aren’t invited to? I would prefer to have a basic invitation to cut costs with that and I know most of the time these two invites (ceremony v reception) are on different pieces of paper within the invitation suite and you just include the ceremony invitation in the suites that people are invited to both. I guess I’m having trouble with my OCD/etiquette on our website, I would like to have anything and everything available on the site to view but I don’t want to shove it in anybody’s face that they haven’t been invited to the ceremony.
