Non Traditional Venue Ideas

When you begin planning for your quinceañera, you might be thinking, where should I have my quince? The go-to idea for ceremonies is, of course, your church.

If you are looking for a way to make your event more unique, choosing an interesting venue might be the way to go!

We’ve come up with a list of some non-traditional venue ideas:

Local parks or campgrounds

Conservatory or botanical gardens

Your back yard


Farms or orchards

Things to Consider

Outdoor Venues:

Having your celebration outdoors is a very popular choice because the pictures will be absolutely gorgeous! The biggest downside to hosting your event outdoors is of course, the weather. You can’t really predict how the weather will be on the day of your party- especially since you will be planning it so far in advance! If you choose an outdoor venue, you’ll need to make sure that you have a back up plan in case of inclement weather, or… learn to dance in the rain!

One or Two Venues:

One of the biggest questions you’ll need to answer is whether you want to have your ceremony and reception in the same location or not. The logistics of having them in the same location will often leave you with fewer choices. However, you will most likely end up spending more money if you have two separate venues. Another thing to think about here is your guests having to travel to and from multiple locations. Try to keep your two locations near each other.

Non-Traditional Inconveniences:

If you choose to use a unique venue, such as an orchard, you will likely encounter some inconveniences. Less traditional venues tend to not have as many amenities, such as bathrooms or electrical outlets. You might also need to rent many items to use at these venues, so take into account how many tables, chairs, and tents you’ll need to rent when you decide on a venue.


Choosing a special venue can be a perfect way to play out your party theme! If you are going with a princess theme, renting out a castle for your reception would be absolutely magical! A unique venue also provides your event with a huge amount of charm, so you won’t need to do as much decorating.
