Couples often turn to The Knot or Wedding Wire to serve as their guide for venues and vendors. While these sites might have many great recommendations, they certainly are not the end-all-be-all. You might be surprised at how helpful Instagram hashtags can be or how many other websites also list the top venues in your area. Examples of these sites are Here Comes the Guide, Junebug Weddings, and Style Me Pretty.
One resource many couples can overlook is the vendors they have already hired. We wedding vendors work many events together and cover events at the same venue time and time again. We are intimately familiar with which vendors and venues go the extra mile and provide stellar service. While we may not have worked at every venue or with every vendor in the area, we can provide helpful recommendations.
As of this writing, in 2020, we are located near Monroe, North Carolina. We are always excited for a wedding in the area as we hope to become a more prominent part of our community. We have had the pleasure of working at some of the venues in the area. A few certainly stick out as our favorites.
Many of these venues are different from one another regarding style, aesthetic, and size, so keep that in mind. A couple of our favorites are:
Rolling Hill Farms is a lovely venue with multiple options for the ceremony site. The Cotton Gin is an unconventional venue with fun opportunities in an old-timey soda shop or rail car. This venue transports you back in time, so if you're looking for something eclectic with a country feel, that venue is for you.
Some Monroe wedding venues that we have not shot at - but would love to! - are Champagne Manor, The Bottle Factory, Morning Glory Farm, The Henry Hall Wilson House, Camellia Gardens, Cedar Creek Ranch, and The Carriage House in nearby Indian Trail.
North Carolina is an incredible place to get married, and Monroe is not short of stunning scenic venues.
If you're looking for that perfect space to say, "I do," I suggest asking around, joining local Facebook wedding groups, searching Instagram hashtags, going online to look on Google and wedding blogs, and asking any current or potential vendors for recommendations. Also, do a simple Google Image search of your venue. A search like this often turns up stunning images not on the venues' website or social media. Once you find a few venues that stick out to you regarding aesthetics, location, and size, schedule some site visits. Websites don't always do the venue justice. Seeing the space in person can make a huge difference!
If you're not sure what to look for in a venue, we have a helpful blog post. The blog post goes over 24 questions to ask venues before booking. You might be surprised at how many venues require you to take out the trash at the end of the night or have unexpected fees. Bookmark this link to have it on hand while you're touring.
We wish you the best of luck finding the best Monroe wedding venues! As always, don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of any help!
