    I think the traditional church is breathtaking, and if you can afford the difference, you should go with the one you’ve dreamed of.

    If its within budget, id go for the extremely beautiful one. The other one is so cold and bare, no real beauty at all, short of the stained glass.

    If you have it in your budget and can afford it I most definitely pick the 2nd church!  It looks AMAZING! i couldn’t even imgaine how beautiful the pictures would come out too.

    @girlygirl885:  The second one is absolutely gorgeous, but the first is also pretty in its own way. However, do you or your FI feel like it’s important to be married/do premarital counseling with someone you know? If it’s within budget and you two don’t mind having someone you don’t know as well do the ceremony, then go for the older one. It’s all down to what matters most to you–it’s your big day!

    @girlygirl885:  

    Is this question about esthetics? Or is it more complicated than that?

    Unless it’s somehow more meaningful to you to have your wedding in the church you normally go to, and have the marriage ceremony performed by the priest that you are most familiar with-

    And you can afford the older, prettier church

    I’d go with option #2

    We are getting married in a church like number 2.  I just love the history that a place like that brings.

    @girlygirl885:  Especially since you don’t consider the modern church to be your “home church” I would go with the traditional one. It’s amazing!

    @girlygirl885:  they’re both nice but #2 is stunning!  The photographs….

    **ASK ABOUT THEIR PHOTO POLICY – I’ve heard stories of some of the old Catholic churches not allowing photographers inside the santuary.

    Wow, the second one is breathtaking!  I think if you can afford the extra $1000, you should go with it.  Definitely a wow-factor
