I need help. I have found venues on here and the knot but I am trying to plan a wedding from Houston and having a hard time knowing what a venue really looks like via pictures.
Does anyone have suggestions of places they have been to that they thought was really pretty and memorable?
- -My budget is 12K max total for venue and reception (including food and drinks)
- -70 to 100 guests
- -30 miles max from Minneapolis/ St paul area
- -theme would be chic and simple and would love an outdoor ceremony options
- -May to September 2014
While in MN for a day I visited:
- – Centennial Lakes Park (loved this but strangely the layout seemed awkward to me for reception)
- -Plymouth Creek Center (my second option, but no alternative option for inside ceremony if there was bad weather)
- -Murzyn P Hall ( my family said it was too big and did not like the hall look)

We’re using Olympic Hills Golf Club in Eden Prairie, MN! They have a gorgeous outdoor space. Our budget is smaller than yours, so hopefully that won’t be an issue with this place. We’re going to get it done for under $8k for 60-80 guests. My FI’s coworker had his wedding there and says great things about it. I was considering Centennial Lakes, but it’s a very public and popular place, and I can just imagine all the gawkers standing around and watching… Hopefully this helps 🙂

We are having ours at Crowne Plaza in Bloomington, 200 people max for $6k (food/bev). Another fugal option is the Profile Event Center. This place is modern and amazing. Includes lighting. Would be our first choice but parking and driving in Minneapolis wasn’t a good option for our out of state/town guests.
Will help you with anything if you need it – message me. I live in this area. Can give you a lot of good ideas.

I haven’t really been looking for venues up here as I’m having my wedding back in Wisconsin, but there is one near my house that seems really nice. If you’re interested I could go take some pictures of it for you.

@masera: The venue has a large outdoor patio that is roofed right on the lake
here’s the inside of it
This is what it looks like from the outside

@masera: If you haven’t found a venue yet, look into Pinstripes in Edina. They are really unique and fun. Private outdoor patio with bonfire (smores). Bowling and Bocce included.
And it’s also on Centennial Lakes Park! Hope this helps.

514 Studios in the Warehouse district. You can do catering by Cosetti or Brasa and then bring in your own alcohol and even use WithATwist, and spend way under 12k.
