I’ve been thinking about doing BYOB and choose-my-own-catering… but I’ve also been thinking about going the opposite way and just renting out a restaurant. It seems like it could be a lot cheaper and less stressful to do it this way. Does anyone have suggestions about cute restaurants or loungey-type places that might be good for a wedding reception?
Right now I’m thinking 100 to 150 people may show up – but maybe less, depending partly on the venue.
If the place has a wood floor, that would be a BIG plus! But it’s not strictly necessary. (I’m willing to rent out a dance floor if I have to.)
Thanks in advance for any help! 🙂

- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
Hmm hopefully other people can chime in with some ideas, but I know Ousie’s Table is a restaurant that doubles as a reception venue, and there have been a lot of pretty weddings at Nouveau Antique Art Bar. (The art bar is filled with antique Tiffany lamps – it’s really cool! I have no idea how big it is, though.)
I’ve never been to a wedding at The Grove in downtown before but I’ve seen several weddings there on our photog’s blog, and it’s suuuuper pretty – you can have the reception on a big deck on the roof, or if the weather’s bad there’s plenty of space indoors too.
Another restaurant I’ve seen on a couple wedding photog blogs is Tiny Boxwood’s. But again, not sure if they couple accommodate 100-150 people! You’d have to check!
