- Wedding: September 2010
I went to another venue today which I love. It’s a family owned location and it fits our budget, the place is beautiful and doesn’t need much done because the room itself is beautiful. All it would need would be centerpieces for the tables which is fine. The food was delicious which we tried while we were there on our appointment.
Now, the manager mentioned that if we decided to do an outdoor ceremony and hold our cocktail hour outside with a sit down dinner in the ballroom the price would be lower because they don’t need to set up the cocktail room and they may actually rent out that room for another party. My only thought is that if the weather works in our favor, great, no problem. When I asked her what would happen if the weather didn’t work out for us on our day, she answered, what they would have to do is have the ceremony in the ballroom, have our guests wait in the lobby while they set up the ballroom for cocktail/sit down dinner. So, the cocktail hour and ceremony would be held together. I’m not sure if I would like to do this if it started raining. Do you think this is tacky? If you were a guest what would you think about it? As I mentioned before, if the weather is beautiful we won’t have to worry about anything but it just makes me a little nervous if a rainstorm came down and we had to go the other route. I wouldn’t want anyone disappointed. All opinions will be helpful.
Thanks again for taking the time out to reply. 🙂
