- Wedding: October 2014
In looking for potential wedding venues, I’ve come up against a small problem and I may have a possible solution, but would like some input.
There are a couple really nice and affordable reception venues that we could bring in our own caterer, alcohol, etc that have some nice amenities on hand – professional grade kitchen, tables, chairs, and some other extras. But unfortunately they don’t really have ceremony space and flipping would be awkward at them. Most of the churches that are conveniently located nearby them are pretty pricey and/or have so many rules and requirements that it would be hard to manage or prevent Mr C and I from having the type of ceremony we’d like.
Nearby there are several gorgeous historical hotels that are out of our price range for our reception, but have some nice spaces that would be perfect for a ceremony and at the right price. Would it seem too out there to have our ceremony at a historic hotel and then have the reception at a nearby venue?
Ideally I would prefer having both the ceremony and reception at the same location, but most places that could accomodate this are out of our price range. I plan to talk to some of the hotels to see if we could accomplish a reception for an affordable price in the off season. and I’m alsto planning to look into some unconventional locations too. However, since I’m planning long distance, I need to have all potential avenues covered so that during my two vendor trips, I can really make the most efficient use of my and their time.
