    I LOVE your garden chic ideas, and if the venue is the one in the photo it’s perfect!

    I think they all sound lovely but I voted for the garden party as sounding the most “fun”. As a wedding guest I think the best weddings are the ones that really seem to suite the couple. With that in mind, what feels the most like you? What do you and your fiance tend to slend your weekends and holidays doing?

    All places look gorgeous.  I chose City Fun because I love Chicago.  I was sad when my Aunt and Uncle moved from there back to our hometown in Nebraska lol.  I always had a blast visiting them and I know first hand how much fun the city can be.

    I’m loving the Garden Chic and Garden party…probably because with my own wedding I chose a combination of both of those. Something about nature is classic and it wouldn’t date your wedding like the  more modern venue would. Dont get me wrong I think the first two options are beautiful, but option #1 is expected, but at least classic with tried and true elements. Option #2 sounds like it has amazing views, but could date your wedding with all of the modern elements and you could be telling your children “well thats what was popular at the time”. Nothing wrong with that but just something to think about.

    I’m all about fun so I chose #2. It depends on your guests which they will like best. Older guests might like elegance more and younger like fun more. All sound great though!

    I don’t like city fun cause there’s absolutely nothing special about it, pretty or not. garden party and garden chic, however, are very beautiful and they look special.


    if I were you, I’d taste the food at those two and make a decision based on that

    Your options all sound great. I think you need to decide how formal you want your reception to be before you make a decision. It souds like these ideas range from the potential to be fairly formal to one that’s more on the casual side.

    For the record, I chose #3. 🙂

    City fun! Alternately garden party. But I’m doing city fun so I might be biased.
