I personally recommend checking everything out in person because some flaws and sizing issues are only obvious in person and not in photos. I think it’s also important to taste the food because we had menus submitted to us that sounded great but then didn’t really taste as good as it sounded.

Here’s an extreme example of why people should see things in person.

@lilbluebird:  That is great! Wow what a differance.

I also agree with this. There are a few venues I LOVED in the photos, but some of them were just awful in photos. It’s kind of like selling a house.. they take the best angle shots as possible, and hide all the flaws.

In a few of the venues I looked at the floors were dark and icky, some even had gum or stains! Ew! Others the ceiling was tinged yellow, or it just plain out smelled moldy/nasty.

If you absolutely cannot/dont want to visit the place, at least do an in depth reviewer search, from a reliable source.
