Yay another Cleveland bride!! First, that is sweet that you got them down from $110 to $65-$75. I tried to negotiate with my reception venue but they wouldn’t budge (bastards.) Anyway, I really can’t answer your questions because I’ve never been to the Hyatt or Happy Day. However, I will tell you this: do not ever forget that this is *your* wedding. Yes, your parents may be paying for it, but you want it to be a reflection of *you*. Here are a few things to think about: Is there any way you can chip in financially to lessen the "burden" on your parents? Are there things you can cut out or cut back on? How much would you have to bring in at Happy Day? Do they provide tables, linens, dishes, glasses, silverware, chairs, etc?

A wedding at the Hyatt and a wedding at Happy Day will be two completely different events. Think about what *you* really want (which to me seems like the Hyatt.) Good luck, and welcome to Wedding Bee!!

I’m sorry I can’t give you any advice on your venues because I’ve haven’t been to either of them, but… I’m originally from Cleveland and all my family is there. I just wanted to say hi and welcome to the hive!!

Whoa, I guess you should probably go with your original plan then! It’s nice when things work out the way you want them too. Good luck with your planning!

I’m getting married at Happy Days in two months. I think the great thing about it is that it’s whatever you make of it. I love the building and history so I’m drawing from that and have no plans for anything “hippie dippy”. I think it’s a large space and requires a lot of work, while a hotel is kind of an easy solution. It sounds like you really like the Hyatt. I’d go with what you want, but definitely keep looking. I looked at hotels and all sorts of venues and it helped me realize that I’m the farthest thing from that route.

I went to a wedding at the November Lodge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the wood inside was so beautiful!  It might be something you could consider….

They Hyatt sounds beautiful – and I think that since it’s what you want and the number crunching really seems to work in your favor – you should go with it! It’s not selfish or anything to want this venue just because mom’s paying/helping pay. If that’s what you want, it’s what you want! And how nice is it to have everything all-inclusive like that?
