    The Renaissance seems to include more and those little things add up quickly! Having a bridal suite and other items included will free up the budget ( or at least help out). Also- having a place where you dont have to transform the space to make it beautiful is a nice touch!

    Does Elm have any kind of Rain Day plan?  Do they provide a tent?  Or can you afford a tent in case it rains?  Elm sounds lovely.  I would not like a Sunday wedding – I like to get a babysitter , stay out late and dance!  I have to be to work on Monday so that would be a downer.

    I’m not sure why having a Sunday wedding wouldn’t be as much fun for your guests as a Saturday wedding. You make your wedding fun, not the day of the week!

    I voted for the Rennaissance.  They both sound lovely but really, the chivari chairs, the vendor accessabilty, the bridal suite and the fireplace is what won me over.  Good luck!

    omg! I don’t know how you’re going to pick >.<

    It seems like your ‘cons’ list kind of answers this question for you.  Both places are BEAUTIFUL! I usually don’t like indoor venues, but I really really really like Renaissance from those pictures.  That bridal suite is aaa-maaaa-zing.

    How does the cost compare?

    I love both, but I love the Renaissance more!  It seems like it offers a lot of stuff.  I would check about the rain at the Elm though.  Are you having a lot of out of town guests?

    Both are really pretty!  I can see why this is a tough decision!

    Before I can vote, I need to know approximately what percent of your guests will be OOT?  Most weddings for me are out of town, and having it on a Saturday would trump pretty much all other considerations, because taking time off work isn’t always easy (or how I want to spend my vacation time).

    Wait, is this Labor Day weekend?  In which case Sat v. Sun doesn’t matter.
