    I think it’s quirky and cool! But I think it will only work with certain themes…what is your theme? For example, a rustic/laid back/mason jar glasses/BBQ could be great in this venue. But not so much a very formal, posh, expensive, sit down dinner affair!

    Not my style. I never understood game hunting and don’t really enjoy seeing it glorified. However, if you and/or your guests are hunters I bet they’d get a real kick out of it. 

     

    Though, I really, really like the floors. Lol.

    It just depends on what kind of couple you are and what your theme is. 

    The venue isn’t for me, as I dislike hunting. But if it suits you guys, go for it.

    I voted creepy because that’s just not my kind of thing. If you love it, go for it but be prepared for some people to be taken aback?

    The trophies at the entrance are kind of cool, but I think the rest is kind of over powering.

    I pinned a wedding a while back that was at a museum. There were a couple of taxidermy bears and they were kind of cool…but massive rows of mounted racks? Just too much for a wedding, IMO.

    Make sure your guests are aware as to what will be there. Personally, if I knew about this I wouldn’t attend and if I didn’t I’d leave straightaway.

    Your username also makes me think you’re a deadhead and as one,i can say that this might not be considered a heady place.

    I live in hunt country, so I’m not scandalized by trophies. The tiger rug with the intact head upsets me, though. I makes me sad.

    @Sugaree:  I think this venue would be really cool for that kind of affair (semi-formal cocktails, less than 25 guests) and you can totally tie it into your invites and a “theme”. I would just make sure first those 25 guests would be cool with something like this–I know I would, but I have a friend who is a hardcore vegetarian and she would start crying and freaking out if that happened. So just make sure you don’t have any guests like that 😉

    OP- I think you’re right about the Hemingway feel to it. It’s definitely not romantic garden wedding, but I don’t dislike it! That said– since your wedding is so small you could put some feelers out there with guests who you think may find it questionable.

    You’ve got such a short time to plan and probably trying to do all of it at once, don’t let this stress you out! If it is within budget, available, and you and your groom both like it– go for it.
