    I love venue 2. But im not an outside ceremony type of person. take 2 much of a gamble on the weather. I love the draping in venue 2 and the whole ballroom is beautiful.


    plus all the rentals are included so thats going to help you so much. but thats just me (: happy planning!

    I loved the all inclusiveness of my venue. It was nice to not have to drive around to look at linens, silverware/plates, lighting, and florists. So I would say #2

    While I love the overall look of #1, I love #2 more for the all-inclusiveness (except the buffets being in a separate room, but I’d compromise on it if I were in your position).

    @PurpleLonghorn:  yes! I dont know where ur located but i live in Cincinnati Ohio so thats just a risk i wasn’t willing to take. Plus it might be scortching hot and unpleasant for ur guests depending on the time of year. You are always going to want pretty weather on ur wedding day but it wouldn’t be as big of a deal if the weather was gross and everything was inside at the same place. (:

    I prefer number one just because I just like the venue, and bringing our own vendors can actually be a pro because you can get deals that way, and you can buy things like linens that are cheaper then renting.The outside space is awesome. The chairs are really nice.

    I think it really comes down to whether you want an outdoor ceremony or not.  Both reception spaces are beautiful and not too much different, in my opinion. We really wanted an outdoor ceremony so I tend to lean towards those options, but if that’s not super important to you, then I’d go with #2 based on the convenience and all the included things.  Good luck!

    I prefer outside weddings BUT, what kind of feel do you want for your wedding?

    Venue 2 has a more elegant feel (dramatic draping, being darker & more intimate w/ no windows)  While venue 1 is more charming (being outside, and with the giant windows in the ballroom.)

    I would look at what feel you want more, and then choose the venue based on that.

    @PurpleLonghorn:  I like them both, but if they are around the same cost i would go with what would cause you less stress. I also think the indoor venue is gorgeous!

    I have a question.  In the picture of the second venue it looks like the ceremony and reception take place in the same space.  If so, what do you do with your guests while they are waiting for the reception to be set up, and how much time will that take? 

    They are both beautiful though.
