Planning A Minneapolis Wedding: Highlights of the City

Live theater is thriving in Minneapolis. Only New York can boast more live theater attractions per capita than Minneapolis.  Visitors can enjoy performances in theaters like the Guthrie Theater and the Orpheum, and can browse through a huge collection of modern art at the Walker Art Center.


Planning A Minneapolis Wedding: Local Wedding Venues

If you’re the kind of bride who dreams of an outdoor wedding, you may be taking a big risk in Minneapolis. The most popular wedding months – June, July, and August – are typically when you’ll see the highest chance for thunderstorms in this twin city.  Spring and fall are often very cold and sometimes snowy, and winter brings frigid temperatures.

However, Minneapolis is simply packed with stunning venues that are more than willing to host your wedding.  A great tip is to find a Minneapolis wedding venue that can host both the reception and the ceremony, because you’re likely to save money and it’s more convenient for your guests.


Planning A Minneapolis Wedding: City Events

It’s important to get to know the events in Minneapolis that draw the largest crowds, so you can avoid those times when planning your wedding.  Without a strategy, you could find yourself in the middle of a congested city, with hiked-up hotel rates and higher prices from wedding vendors. For instance, the Twin Cities Marathon Run held in St. Paul-Minneapolis each year around October draws a quarter of a million spectators.  Late January brings the Winter Carnival, which draws approximately 350,000 visitors - featuring ice castles, carving contests and many other activities.

While it’s sure to be a hectic wedding planning phase for you, Minneapolis is a haven for talented designers and brilliant vendors ready to help you put together a wedding that won’t soon be forgotten.
