Indianapolis is famous for a lot of things, but weddings certainly aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. Most commonly, people associate Indianapolis with car racing and football, but there is an entirely different side to this wonderful city that makes it perfect for having your wedding. Whether you’re headed downtown from rural Indiana to have that “big city” experience that makes for a very glamorous wedding or you already live in the metro area, there are a lot of things to consider when planning your wedding. Here is a quick overview of things to keep in mind when you’re planning the perfect Indianapolis wedding.
Choosing a Venue
One of the most difficult parts of planning a wedding is narrowing down a wedding venue, and that’s true whether your wedding will be held in Indianapolis or any other American city. The key is determining what type of wedding you want to have before you start shopping around. Indianapolis has a wedding venue for any type of wedding whether you want something rustic or you are more of an elegant couple. Many couples choose to rent a wedding venue that overlooks the river, but it is almost equally popular to keep things quaint with a classic chapel wedding and separate wedding reception location.
In the Indianapolis area, there are tons of great musical acts that are an ideal fit for wedding entertainment. Additionally, if a DJ is more your speed you won’t have any trouble finding one of those to book either. However, weddings these days require a little more effort and excitement, so you may want to consider adding wedding sparklers to the party. Wedding sparklers add an instant injection of life into any event, and all of your guests will find an endless amount of uses for them throughout the day. Best of all, they’re the cheapest way to add more entertainment to your wedding.
Point of Interest
There is no shortage of great landmarks and points of interest in the Indianapolis area, so make sure you take full advantage of them for your wedding photos. Doing a remote photo shoot at nearby landmarks is all the rage these days, so discuss this with your photographer. Whether you want to take in some culture at the Indianapolis Arts Garden or you want to recognize our nation’s heroes at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument and Museum, there’s something for everyone and photo opportunities galore.
