How to Plan a Brewery Themed Wedding
First, decide if you’re planning a beer wedding, rehearsal, engagement party, or shower. Easy enough, right?
Next, plan where to host the party.
Where to Throw a Beer Wedding
One of the best, on-theme places to plan a beer wedding or shower? Yes — your favorite brewery! You can plan a wedding at a brewery. Many breweries offer venue spaces, and some will even offer the ability to rent out the entire brewery for the duration of your wedding so it is a private event. Imagine getting your favorite craft beers tapped right on-site!
In addition, some places offer a beer garden, an outdoor space you can rent in the spring and summer months for a fun garden themed beer wedding reception. Find out which locations near you offer these and, if available, book it!
If you cannot rent a brewery for your space, you can still plan a creative beer themed wedding at your favorite reception site, regardless if it is a brewery or not. A large ballroom, reception hall, or your favorite restaurant are just a few places where you can host your nuptials.
Choose your venue and book it. Done? Great! Now you have your wedding date (or bridal shower / engagement party / rehearsal dinner date). It’s time to put that to good use and share the happy news with a beer wedding save the date and brewery wedding invitations, along with invites for other events as shown below.
