    @SnowInApril:  I’d prefer #2 because I only need to drive to one place.

    I think the vineyard might be a bit special!

    @SnowInApril:  If you are leaning to #1 and FI wants #1,  I’m not sure why you don’t just choose #1.

    This is your wedding- you should have the wedding you want.

    @SnowInApril:  I think number two just because a vinyard it’s not a place I would normally get to go to! But I think number one would be lovely as well

    @SnowInApril:  I feel like it’s sort of hard to put myself in the shoes of the guest when I can’t see pictures of the actual venues in question.

    From what you are describing, I much prefer venue 2, as it seems a little more special & more wedding themed. I think the first venue would be nice too, but it would almost feel like a big post wedding family dinner as opposed to an actual wedding reception. I think when you look back at your wedding, you’ll want to remember it being in a very special & meaningful place, & I don’t know that a restaurant venue will accomplish this.

    i voted for the vineyard. it sounds really pretty and it’s a place not many people get to go to very often.

    the thing that turned me off about the restaurant is that there would be a tv there. from a bride’s perspective, i would be annoyed if people chose to stare at a tv screen all night instead of really celebrating with me and the other guests.

    The vineyard, because the idea of a big screen tv and couches at my wedding sounds like a dealbreker.  You could do your shower or RD at the restaurant if you like it so much.

    @MrsTVLover:  I think I’m going to agree with this.

    I don’t like the idea of having a big screen TV at my wedding so I would go with #2. But if yall already both like #1 and aren’t looking for a big formal hoopla than go with what you like

    The vineyard sounds great and definitely more special, however you may be right about it not looking that great in December. I’ve seen some in the winter and frankly, they’re pretty depressing… all bare and yellow. Just think of how your pictures will look!
