I have always loved a certain wedding venue, and when my fiance’ and I became engaged, it was the first venue we looked at. The inside is beautiful, and the outside is very nice as well. The problem is, it is not in a very good area of town, and I am afraid that guests will judge our venue choice. We put a deposit down right away because our state is small and venues book years in advance. I do love the venue, but I am scared about what others with think as they are pulling up. It is kind of in a dirty city area, then you see a gorgeous banquet center on the side of the road. The venue just doesn’t look like it belongs at all. I included some photos – Please let me know what you think!

I think if it’s the venue set in your heart then go for it!
Word of advice… Don’t be so concerned with what every one else will think… fact is you can’t please everyone and ultimately it is you and your hunny’s day so it needs to be what ya’ll like! Your guests will love what you love so long they see how great you think it is!
Be happy and just let that set the mood…. not the surrounding enviroment 😉

it looks really pretty! no one will judge your venue for its location. i’m sure the center has security, so it’s not like everyone’s cars will be broken into during the reception.

Personally I think the part of town shouldn’t matter. It looks like a very fancy place, and no one should care where it is. I would get a valet service, for guests’ cars, and security, if that would make you feel better.

Nobody will care about the location. The venue is gorgeous!

The area of town shouldnt matter unless people feel unsafe parking their cars there, but otherwise the actualy venue matters most. If you love it, then keep it!

I think that venue is stunning, it doesn’t matter so much what sort of area it is in. Don’t worry about what others will think, if you love it then go with it. I would be impressed going to a wedding there, it looks beautiful!
