I’m in the midst of planing my big day…. And i stumbled across a local pub that has the capacity to hold like 300 guest! (i will have at least 180)
Just wondering if anyone had issues holding their wedding at a pub?
My parents hate the idea… They want a nice elegant place…
I’m really having second thoughts… Is it bad having a wedding at pub?
How would you feel as a guest and got an invite? What would you expect?
Feeling so lost…. =(

Mrs.to.be2: Things to ask:
1. Are you pub people? If yes, then proceed. If not, then why are you thinking about it?
2. Are you able to have the whole pub? Would it matter if you couldn’t?
3. Do you want dancing? Can you have dancing?
4. What are their catering packages? Will it be in your budget?
If all of those coincide with your vision/budget/style then there’s no reason to not explore it as a venue! We totally would have done that if there were a pub large enough for us to have our wedding in. Main reason we didn’t go for a brewery was that you can’t bring in outside alcohol in our state and we knew we’d want wine & bourbon in addition to beer.

I work for a brewery and my FI loves beer. We are having our wedding at a pub that has an outdoor space and having the ceremony in the outside space. It’s very backyard feeling and perfect for us since beer is a big factor in our relationship. I wish my brewery had a bigger space for entertaining and we would have had it there. Since it doesn’t, our pub/beer garden is the perfect spot for us.

My FI and I decided tonight that we are having a brewery pub reception. For us, it’s perfect. We like to go out, watch sports, play darts/pool, and have a good time. We anticipate about 150 people, and we are seeing it as a “come when you want, stay as long as you want” concept. We don’t plan on having a seating chart, and everyone can eat when they want to. At first I wasn’t sure if we would both feel okay with doing something SO casual (even though that’s our style, I’m the type that didn’t want a reception in the first place but wedding planning convinced me otherwise), but we both left feeling so happy that I just don’t care what anyone else thinks. It’s our day, and if this is what we want then who cares? I think as long as you are happy, that’s all that matters
