If you’re looking for the perfect venue for your dream wedding, head straight to Alabama. AL.com and Yelp teamed up to determine some of the favorite wedding spots around Alabama, and the results are a Pinterest-worthy assortment of dream locations.
The paper wisely didn’t rank the wedding sites, because brides-to-be can do that themselves, but instead listed them in alphabetical order and there is something for every type of bride, from historic venues and rustic gems to chic country clubs and beautiful spots on the Gulf Shore. It would be hard to go wrong with any of them as excited couples look for the right place for their Big Day.

Highlights include the gorgeous 1818 Farms in Mooresville, which hosts weddings in its bucolic fields. Brides can set up long tables on the grounds surrounding the farms’ garden house, for a wedding reception that is truly outstanding in the field. Plus, holding a wedding on a working farm means brides can have sheep and pot-bellied pigs as adorable backdrops in their wedding photos.
Another favorite is the Dekalb Theater in Fort Payne. You don’t have to be a movie lover to want to throw your wedding at this gorgeous art deco theater, which opened its doors in 1935. The historic theater lets couples see their names in lights on the marquee outside, which ensures guests know they’ve arrived at the right location.
Looking for a venue that’s truly out of this world? Throw your party at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, which would make for a memorable event, so long as you can stand all the star and space jokes.
And if you know you want to get married in Mobile, but aren’t sure of what you’re looking for, head to The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel, which has 14 unique wedding venues on site, as well as a spa for relaxing after a long day of wedding planning.
Birmingham brides have many choices including the Alabama Theater, The Aldridge Gardens, Birmingham Country Club, and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, which would be perfect on a fall day.

Historically minded brides-to-be may like American Village in Montevallo. The rustic barn is perfect for a low-key country shindig, while the elegant Liberty Hall was modeled after Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. (Virginia brides should note that Monticello itself can serve as a wedding venue, too.)
