Ditch the hotel hall: Saskatoon offers up distillery, guitar shop, museum among creative wedding locales

Crystal MacLeod is often asked about unique places to get married in and around Saskatoon. She's the owner of RSVP Event Design, based in Saskatoon. The company has been around for about 20 years.

She said the main consideration when people are planning a unique wedding is size. It can be easier to find a unique venue when you have fewer people. 

"Some of these unique venues are really cool and different and they probably haven't hosted a lot of weddings, but a lot of the smaller or more unique venues also can't accommodate 200 plus people," MacLeod said. 

If a person is looking for somewhere different, here are some suggestions.

Agar's Corner

Located on Township Road 360, southeast of Saskatoon, Agar's Corner is a family-owned farm. 

"It's been in their family for over 100 years," MacLeod said. "They also have a space inside the house that they can do smaller events so it's really neat. 

Village Guitar & Amp Co.

"It's very unique. They sell guitars there during the day and then in the evening it can become an event centre," MacLeod said. "So there's all these cool guitars hanging on the wall. It's kind of dramatic and dark and kind of has a sexy look to it."

Western Development Museum

"It is really unique in that guests can walk through the museum part," she said. "You can do ceremonies right on the main street of Boomtown, which is pretty cool."

Champêtre County

"The vintage barn idea now has become really popular," MacLeod said. "It's just a really unique venue."

The old saloon is located 35 kilometres east of Saskatoon. 

Lucky Bastard Distillery

The distillery hosts weddings and receptions in North Saskatoon. 

"They've done a beautiful job, it's really cool and unique," MacLeod said. "And you see the big distillery in the back."
