    I chose outside, but at that time of day (relatively early) I don’t think people would mind not having alcohol either

    I love weddings where everyone mingles and has fun so I choose a casual reception with alcohol every day of the week.

    @WestCoast:  I LOVE the outdoors, and am not religious, so the church one has absolutely NO appeal whatsoever for me.

    Outside = beautiful, different, and awesome. Alcohol = bonus! Totally worth it. 🙂

    @lovelove1028:  this is your wedding. If you’re not religious and you do prefer outdoors, do it outdoors!!

    While I’d like to have alcohol, I much prefer to be inside than outside, and have real bathrooms too.

    Lol, I am a girlie girl, and HAVE TO HAVE REAL FLUSHIES in my life

    So as much as I think the outdoor location sounds gorgeous (and I love wine), I’d not be too thrilled to find out the only option was a Porta-Potty

    PLUS from your planning point of view, you also need to have a back-up plan for iffy / bad weather (and don’t get me started on the joys of porta-potties in bad weather… mud, ick)

    Other than that… I’m assuming that you are only describing the Base Point for both these locations… in that you’d be decorating / personalizing BOTH of them if you were to go with one of them (so the big box bare room wouldn’t necessarily stay that way)

    The Church doesn’t sound half-bad at all… especially as it is an Afternoon Wedding (Reception maybe 2:30 to 6:00 PM)… so as others have said, I can’t imagine folks wanting a lot of alcohol to begin with. 

    (I’m envisioning fruit punch, hors d’ouevres, fancy sandwiches, Wedding Cake, Tea & Coffee… AND IF Booze was an option, a toasting glass of Sparkling when the Cake was cut… but even if you can only do a toast with Gingerale… it still doesn’t sound half-bad.  And 3.5 Hours will fly by for both you and your Guests, you’ll be amazed)

    All things considered… I vote for the Church.

    Hope this helps,

    If I was choosing between the two, I’d much rather attend the outdoor wedding. It sounds far more enjoyable and beautiful! It isn’t just about the alcohol either, although being able to have a drink is great. It just sounds like a much nicer space. I am sure people can deal with a clean portapotty, it isn’t like it’s an outdoor concert/festival or something, ha 😉

    For the record I had no idea people were so anti-portapotti until I joined the bee also had no idea there were portable trailers with bathrooms. There will be portapottis at my wedding as well, and I would prefer the outdoor wedding but probably would have maybe one drink between 2 and 6 thats just way to early to drink for me.

    I’ve been to plenty of beautiful weddings with porter potties. No one complained. I’ve seen plenty of no-alcohol related complaints.
