So, You Want To Open a Wedding Venue...

You can see it in your dreams, visions of epic ceremonies and pristine photo opps. You have the ultimate venue location, property with a rustic barn, horses grazing in the neighboring pasture.

You are going to have brides lining up to have their special day at YOUR venue.

Eeeeeeeeeeek. (insert scratching record here)

Reality just hit…like a truck on an ice patch.

Panic sets in.

“Where do I start? What do I need? What is trending? What if I can’t offer what the couple wants?!”


Calm down, grab a paper bag. Breathe. We happen to work with brand new venues every day, all day. Let’s start with baby steps. The big three. Once you get through these, the rest is smooth sailing.

  • Chairs
  • Tables
  • Sanity

Let’s start with chairs and keep it simple. No overwhelming anyone here.


Chiavari Chairs 

Wood Chiavari Chair - Gold

One of the most traditional and versatile chairs. The classic wedding chair that has become timeless. Elegant, yet solid. The workhorse of chairs.

Why has this chair remained so popular through the ages? The versatility. They have forged their way and made themselves at home in formal settings as well as the more casual setting.

Cross Back Chairs

Vineyard Estate Cross Back Chair - Mark II

Talk about trends!! These bad boys… or girls, are the hot topic right now. The killer chair for a rustic charm.

If you are looking for a warm intimate feeling, this chair radiates with it. No arms to crash into tables that brings unwanted attention to the clumsy guest. Always a plus!

Resin Folding Chairs

TitanPRO™ White Resin Folding Chair

Talk about the go to reliable do everything and go everywhere chair! Inside, outside, upside down. Maybe not upside down, but they nest together for stacking purposes beautifully.

One of the best go to chairs for a brand-new venue. Budget friendly with a clean classic look. The ‘fancy’ folding chair if you will. Why, don’t mind if I do.

See, that wasn’t so bad, was it? Time to break down the tables!

Folding Tables

Round Folding Tables 

TitanPRO™ 60'' Round Plastic Folding Table

Kid friendly, mother approved! Round tables will encourage closeness and allow everyone at the table to be a part of the conversation.

Shared dishes, toasts and passing the salt just became a legendary concept.

Banquet Folding Tables

TitanPRO™ Heavy Duty Birchwood Folding Banquet Table

The daddy of folding tables. One of the most common choices because this shape works great in rectangle rooms. Wait, what? Yes, mind blown.

Also, the choice of table for serving food. Servers on one side, guests on the other. Line em up!

Farm Tables

8' x 40'' Solid Pine Folding Farm Table

The Cross Back chairs and the Farm Tables have a very special relationship. Peas in a pod. Hand in glove. Peanut butter and Jelly.

The rustic charm these guys bring together is an undeniable love affair. Trending and crazy popular, the farm table is the talk of the town.

Last but certainly not least: Sanity. Don’t lose it. There are a lot of options out there, for sure. Talk it out and even make friends doing so!

Keep everything in perspective and enjoy the process.
