    Even 25 years later, I still hear about family member’s weddings that weren’t air-conditioned. No one remembers if a venue was pretty.

    What time of day will you be getting married?  If it’s in the evening, you might be ok.  Plus, stone can really help keep a building cool. 

    When do you have to decide?  Could you go to the venue in, say, July and go in the chapel and see how hot it is?<br />

    ekelso92:  For 3pm in August, I would go with the air conditioning. The guests won’t enjoy a beautiful setting if they’re sweating and feeling like they’re going to pass out.  Plus, if you have older guests it might pose a health risk.<br />

    ekelso92:  Hmm that’s a tricky one, it would be unpleasant to swealter through a long reception but I also think the look of the reception venue has a huge impact on the overall feel of the day/night.

    Weather is a tricky one, we decided not to go with our original choice of ceremony venue as it was partially outdoors (a beautiful old balcony attached to a spectacular building), I was worried about rain/wind/heat etc. but we were lucky enough to find an equally beautiful totally indoor venue instead!

    The Chapel sounds so divine so I’d probably want that too.. but could you add a few decoration and things to the hall to make it look prettier? I’ve seen some basic rooms turned in to something pretty special! It doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune, you just need to be clever about what you do!

    Do you have pics of both that you can show us?

    That’s a tough decision, but you should go with what will make you most happy.  Can you bring fans into the chapel?  Or have an ice water refreshment station (either in the chapel itself or right outside the entrance)?  We’re having a similar debate (except our concern is that it will be too cold), as we really want to hold our ceremony outdoors; however, our wedding is in early November and we’re in New England, so it could really be whatever!  Our plan is to make sure that our guests know that our plan is to have an outdoor ceremony (unless the weather is really awful) so they can dress accordingly.

    Ugh, Chapel all the way. Tall ceilings and ceiling fans will help keep it cool. You can have a basket of white paper folding fans at the door as a cute favor. It’s only 30 minutes! I would much rather be a little warm in a beautiful space than cool in body and cold in spirit because of cold, industrial surroundings. Chapel!!!
