A Viking would feel like they conquered a true paradise upon arrival at this mansion in the woods in New Jersey! This venue offers tons of fun decorations and decor that fit perfectly with a Viking wedding theme, and the wooded area adjacent to the house would be perfect for a Viking-themed reception.

This Luling, Texas venue is sure to transport you back to Viking times for your wedding! As the Peerspace host says, “There is NO Place like it in Texas, let alone the rest of the USA.”

The venue has plentiful space for photos, your ceremony, and reception, and even includes a warehouse full of props and materials to build with! This property also comes with buildings constructed from 95% pure salvage materials and a bentonite mud bath you and your guests can relax in!

So many unique locations and so much freedom to create what you desire,” said one Peerspace reviewer. “Definitely would recommend and plan on going back for future projects as there is no way we were able to utilize the spaces full potential in one day alone.”

For a quaint and classy Viking-themed microwedding, look no further than this gorgeous Seattle venue! This Peerspace listing was built in 1915 by a Norwegian shipbuilder (likely a bit of a Viking himself with that job description!).

The property includes an intimate, multi-terraced garden that overlooks a forest of black bamboo, perfect for a small wedding ceremony. Plus, this house faces west, making it an ideal wedding location for catching the beauty of evening sunsets.

Tip #2: Choose a Viking-inspired color palette

For a Viking wedding theme, yellows, reds, purples, and blues are going to be your go-to for decorating and dress!

According to the National Museum of Denmark, blue was a precious color purchased abroad and only for the most special occasions and the wealthiest individuals. That means blue would be a fabulous color for your wedding party — with yellow, red, and purple decorations throughout the venue!

Tip #3: Find a Viking-loving photographer to capture your big day

For example, check out Narrowleaf Photography, featured as #6 on Peerspace’s list of “The 9 Best Elopement Photographers in Minneapolis. You can see some beautiful pics from the shoot on Narrowleaf Photography’s Instagram.

“I have dreamt of photographing a Viking-themed elopement since doing a Vikings cosplay myself a few years ago,” said the Narrowleaf photographer who captured the pics.

Tip #4: Include some super fun Viking activities
