Introducing The Venue Report

One of the most difficult things in planning for your wedding – or even the other events like bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and bachelorette party – is where should it take place? Everyone wants a unique + rad spot to get married or celebrate the other events, right? Well, let me introduce you lovelies to The Venue Report. The Venue Report uncovers the coolest places to throw parties in all the land. That hidden tucked away forest to host a Midsummers Night Dream themed-bash. A rustic old barn overlooking the ocean, perfect for a country hoedown. What about the coffee house couple who wants to host their wedding at a cafe with mismatched chairs? They have it. A girls glamping getaway with a s’mores specialist standing by? They found that too. Maybe you are dreaming of a Gatsby style soiree at a glamorous villa with a long winding driveway and pedicured hedges? Yep,they found it.

To celebrate this amazing new resource, an uber talented team gathered to showcase some of the amazing events you can use The Venue Report for. With photos by Jose Villa, styling by Canvas & Canopy and Grey Likes Weddings, and florals by Studio Fiore, we have some seriously gorgeous inspiration to share with you all today!

So…where will you go on a girls glamping getaway?

The Venue Reporters & Correspondents will find the celebration location of your dreams, get you the deals, and report on the ‘inside info’ for each one. They only draft reports on venues that they deem has the cool or unique factor, that ‘x’ factor. They also report on the ‘up and comers” yes, the venues that are brand new and have never been seen before. EVER. Meaning you can be the very first one to break it in. So for you couples + party planners that want something one-of-a-kind and never been seen before, you will find it at The Venue Report.
