Think outside the box: unique venues

 

Ever been told by your client they'd like you to think outside the box when it comes to unique venues?


For example, most guests have been invited to, say, a yacht club when the theme has to do with the ocean - but that's so entirely predictable! Why not mix it up and surprise them?!

When you've got a decor theme in mind don't choose the traditional location - go for maximum guest engagement with a novel venue type.

If you think a little laterally, you can amaze your guests with an unconventional
, even truly alternative venue location that will excite them to attend, from the moment they receive their invitation.
