What is a “Bare” Wedding Venue?
It can be summed up in one sentence: The venue provides the room, you provide the wedding. Bare venues are blank, beautiful open canvases that you can draw on, but little more than that is included in the rental cost. No tables, chairs, or catering, no staff, possibly no restrooms, and probably no kitchen. Or, if they are included, both the quality and quantity are limited. You are fully responsible – both physically and financially – for providing all of that stuff. ALL OF IT. And yes, your backyard is a bare venue.
We’ll talk about challenges and solutions, but we’ll also talk about real numbers, costs and timelines, too.
But, by the end of this guide, you’ll be confident that you have the information and tools you need to create a beautiful and stress-less wedding day.
