A Wedding with an Artistic Flair: Getting married at an Art Museum

Your wedding will be one of the most special days of your life. Why not celebrate it surrounded by unique and wonderful works of art? Many art museums and galleries have begun offering space for weddings among the artwork. This is a great way to have a unique and gorgeous wedding.

Have everything in one place

There are many advantages to having your wedding in an art museum. At most art museums, such as the National Museum of Women in the Arts, florists and party planners are on staff, and will help you design your day with ease. Other sites, like the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, have a list of caterers that they have a relationship with; again, this will make your planning easier. One of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is coordinating all of the different professionals – you can make this process easier by clicking here for a service that will help you compare quotes and plan occasions with ease.

The best site for all art lovers


Another obvious advantage of hosting your wedding in an art museum is the collections inside. Most museums have striking and beautiful spaces, which will set your ceremony off to the best advantage. Before and after the ceremony, guests can marvel at different works of art. At the National Museum of Women in the Arts, there is even a piece entitled Dawn’s Wedding Feast – a perfect item for guests to see before a wedding! At the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which is open 365 days a year, guests can see exhibits of Ancient Art, Faberge, ancient American art, or more.

A location in the center of town


Some museums also have great locations. For example, the Walters Art Museum sits in the heart of Mount Vernon, home to the original Washington Monument. The American Visionary Art Museum is easily accessible and is close to all of Baltimore’s hotels and downtown attractions. One event planner has praised the Newseum specifically because of its location. This museum, like many others, has a great view; the Newseum is home to the Hank Greenspun Terrace on Pennsylvania Avenue, where guests can see the historic walkway statesmen have walked down for hundreds of years.

Accommodate as many or as few guests as needed


Different sites will hold different numbers of people; however, unlike some venues, art museums come in so many sizes that it will be easy to choose a site that works for your specific needs. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts can accommodate up to 2500 guests, making it a perfect place for large weddings. On the other end of the scale, the American Visionary Art Museum offers small rooms for intimate gatherings. Whatever the size of your wedding, an art museum can host you. Styckie will help get you in touch with the right venue for you.

For all these reasons and more, why not have your wedding in an art museum? It will make your day special, and the pictures will be gorgeous. Get help organizing with Styckie to make planning easy!
