Why you should have a blank canvas wedding venue
Looking for a way to fully personalise your wedding day? Blank canvas wedding venues are the new big thing – they allow brides to create unique days using their own suppliers!
Allowing brides to customise their venue decor to their heart’s content, blank canvas spaces can be transformed to match any theme or colour scheme. Whether you want a rustic venue filled with pretty fairy lights or an extravagant 1920s themed day, the same space can become anything with a blank canvas wedding! So, if you want a totally unique wedding day, here’s everything you need to know about blank canvas weddings and why we think they’re amazing.
What is a blank canvas wedding venue?
First things first: what actually is a blank canvas wedding? A blank canvas venue is a space which doesn’t come with any required or limited suppliers. So, from chairs to decorations, you are responsible for sorting out everything. Whilst some brides find this overwhelming, it allows you the freedom to completely build your wedding’s look from scratch. Some venues, such as Friars Court in Oxfordshire, allow you access to the venue a few days ahead of your wedding day to give you plenty of time to transform the venue into your vision. Just take a look at the images of this gorgeous wedding venue below for more inspiration.
The main reason people are drawn to blank canvas weddings is the endless options for unique venue decor. From colourful lanterns to dreamy floral arrangements, don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to your decorations. This will allow you to play with ideas and create something totally personal to you and your fiancé. Everything from tables to napkins will be able to be personalised, so have some fun with your theme!
Another great thing about blank canvas wedding venues is that they can often be found in unique locations which more traditional venues can not. So, if you want a beach, woodland or barn wedding, a blank canvas wedding could be perfect for you. Alternative locations are great for blank canvas weddings because they can be transformed into practically anything. We love this extravagant woodland inspired decor at Friars Court which looks like A Midsummer Nights Dream come to life!
If you’re planning on hiring a blank canvas wedding venue, remember that you often need to supply everything – so don’t neglect the more boring but necessary things! Some outdoor venues don’t come with toilets included, so it may be your job to source this. Check with your venue before you book to see what necessities you will need to budget for. This way, you can make sure your guests have everything they need to have the most amazing day!
