- Wedding: October 2014
I know that there are a lot of us Chicagoland suburb brides so I’m hoping that I can get some input here 🙂
I decided not to go with our original list of venues because our ceremony will be in Wheeling and I don’t want to ask my guests to drive more than 20 minutes. When I looked up the distances between my church and the original list of venues, I realized that (without traffic) it was going to take about 45 minutes.
I know that some guests would be OK with it but I would rather just start looking for a place that is within 25 minutes of the church. More importantly, my grandma will be 94 this year and I would rather keep the reception closer to her home 🙂
The difficult part is that I am trying to look for a place that is BYOB/allows outside catering AND is less than $3000.
I have a couple that I’m going to be looking at so far but I am hoping that someone else will be able to help!
