    @AussieBrideToBeeee:  I’d want to have all my guests there.  However, if it’s your dream to have your wedding in the fancy location, then maybe my answer is different…

    @AussieBrideToBeeee:  Weddings to me are about professing your commitment to another person in front of the people, near and dear so I would obviously pick the one that fits the most people that I truly care for.

    You should do what you really, really want.

    My FI and I have booked a small, intimate private venue and have told our families that maximum capacity is 80, and we would prefer 60. We have chosen our own caterer, which was surprisingly affordable for very good food, and it’s a BYO location, so we can choose our own beer, wine, cider and spirits. 

    I don’t think any one will really care, at the end of the day- it’s not really about the food and drink. The day is about you and your beloved exchanging rings and promises for your life together.

    AussieBrideToBeeee:  I have been to a number of weddings that ranged from fancy venues to the Legion Hall and other modest set-ups. As a guest, I did not care. Was just happy for the couple.

    When I was the bride, my preference was to be able to splurge and spoil a small number of guests. If these are people you really want there, maybe go for the larger venue. What I don’t get is the huge, expensive wedding that costs the couple (or their parents) a fortune and a number of the guests are people that they don’t care that much about.

    Our venue is very simple.. they only provide the tables and chairs. No linens, dishes or anything of that sort. However.. it’s overlooking our city lake. I’ll take that and have simple decorations and also have the joy of having all of our friends and family there over having a small overly decorated venue any day. The way I see it, not many of them will remember our decor or the small things. All that matters is that we’re all together! We’re also expecting about 80 people.
