I think they are both very pretty, but I do wish you luck with changing if you do want to go that route!

The only problem I see is that the new place seems to be very weather dependent. What are you going to do if it rains or gets unseasonably cold? Is there a back-up area?

If so, and you can afford to lose your deposit, I say go for it.

@HeyKaraoke:  I agree with previous posters … Both venues (or should I say all three venues?) are gorgeous!

EffieTrinket made a good point about the new venue being very weather dependent, though.  I’m not sure where you’re from, but I know October can get pretty cold in Omaha.  One year my fiance and I went to a wedding (he was a groomsman) in early/mid October (the 10th maybe?) and it snowed several inches!  If that seems unlikely, though, I’d still check to make sure there are other areas for the ceremony and reception that don’t involve being outside in case of rain.  Otherwise, if you’re comfortable losing your initial deposits, I say go for it!

Good luck!  I’m sure you’ll make the right choice for the two of you and have a gorgeous wedding!

Both are very nice. I’m always about saving money though, good luck.

In my area anyway, an outdoor wedding in October is RISKY (though I don’t know where YOU live).

Also, if it is cold, do they have preperations, like maybe a bonfire area, warming lantern things or some other means to keep guests warm? If not, maybe July wouldn’t be so bad, especially if you have a late afternoon ceremony.

Will you get your deposit back from your other venue?

 

Edit: I just read your last post. I’m glad to hear they have a backup pla in case of poor weather. Good luck hope it works out for you!
