While you might be dreaming up an elopement in the Tetons, there's a chance you're from the Cowboy State and are seeking one of the best small wedding venues in Wyoming to tie the knot near your hometown. Either way, we've found options for you, from expansive venues at the edge of national parks to boutique art galleries ready to wow you with their offerings. While there is no wrong choice here, picking from all the small wedding venues available can be a difficult first step to planning an intimate wedding day.

So, as you peruse these small spots to tie the knot in Wyoming, consider what season you want to get married, as many venues are known for their outdoor spaces rather than their interiors. Also, think about how close you want to be to outdoor recreation found at the state's parks, rivers and ranches, as some locations are much closer than others. Either way, once your celebration has wrapped up, don't forget to change your name in Wyoming to make everything extra official.
