One of the biggest days in any person’s life is the day when they stand beside the person that the love and publicly profess their love for them while surrounded by friends and loved ones.

We’re talking, of course, about weddings! There are tons of decisions that need to be made before that magical occasion, but first and foremost, after the question has been “popped” and the planning begins, you need to find a location for the big party.

There are many fantastic potential wedding locations in the Indianapolis area, each with their own special charm, but not every site is going to speak to each and every couple.

The best way to get started is to take a brief tour of the following venues and see which ones speak to your own personality. Then you can schedule a visit to those venues and drink in the atmosphere in person in order to help make that big decision the right one for you.
