    @Creiddylad:  I like to save money so I would probably go with the place you have connections with and is less expensive…Even though they offered to help, I think I would still go with that option…

    Your parents are weird… about the beginning and end of things point for a museum…. haha

    @Creiddylad:   Plus my father thinks the big stone schoolhouse is ugly/creepy/looming. . . um no, it is interesting and historic.

    Haha, this is also funny. no one will even notice the schoolhouse, which sounds interesting to me anyways… better than… a stinky dairy farm, or junkyard next door…

    I think you should ignore your parents and do what makes you and your FI happy.  This your wedding and really the only opinions that matter are yours.  And from the sounds it, distance is always going to be a problem because it will either be to far from you or to far from them and I vote for it to be closer to the bride and groom 🙂

    @Creiddylad: If it was me, I would briefly look at my surroundings and then focus on the wedding. 🙂 and people watching. I love people watching! So the schoolhouse wouldn’t even matter to me.

    @Creiddylad:  If your parents are like my Mom, that museum comment was just a convenient excuse as to why you shouldnt have your wedding there. I betcha that if they found a museum close to them, they would have no problem at all with it. Just ignore them, and do what feels right for you guys

    Since my fiance is a history major, we would absolutely go with the museum. Plus it’s a place you have a connection to, and I think that will mean a lot to you.

    It’s YOUR wedding, you’re paying for it, so I suggest stop asking your parents what they think and just do what you want 🙂

    @Creiddylad:  Just as I thought! And I’m jealous that you could have it at a museum that you have a connection to. My DH works at a museum too…the Holocast museum…not the best place for a wedding LOL

    @Creiddylad:  Go with the venue YOU love. 

    FH and I did, we’re getting a little grief for it because it’s kinda out of the way, but it’s what we want and that’s what matters 🙂

    If your parents aren’t paying, they shouldn’t be in on the picking. Just my 0.02.
