My venue name isn’t funny but it could lead to misconceptions with guests not familiar with it (which is most of my guests — all of fiance’s family gets married here)…it’s called Four Seasons, but it’s not the Four Seasons that pops into everyone’s heads…instead, it’s the local township-owned golf course…it’s nothing to look at from the outside, but the interior was just renovated and makes for a nice palette to design a ceremony and reception around.

We almost went with the Four Seasons…the Four Seasons Activity Center at a local ski lodge!

We’re at the Westend Senior’s Center. Doesnt exactly inspire visions of grandeur, now does it?

This is SO not what you meant but a former student of mine who now lives in Spain is invited to a wedding and the reception is at a restaurant called ARSE….

Our venue isn’t the worrrssst name, but it definitely does not do it justice! Camp Lucy, to me at least, doesn’t make me think of the beautiful Texas hill country and French Colonial buildings from Vietnam built in the 1800’s… haha but it sureeee is gorgeous!

LOL these are great!

Our venue is called The Little Nugget, not too bad eh?

That is…

until you consider that there’s a strip club called The Gold Nugget not far from it and I keep accidentally calling our venue it!!!  FI is in charge of the wording on the invites for fear I mess that up!

Our main legal ceremony is in a hotel that is owned by the chain called Holiday Inn. In the uk Holiday Inn’s are widely known for being ok stop overs if you’re staying out of town – nicer than a b&b but definitely not a plush hotel. I am well aware that when I tell people the location I will get a few snorts.

However, the Holiday Inn I am getting married in is a brand new recently opened one that is absolutely beautiful and very very modern and plush. It got voted one of the top 5 wedding venues in my area recently. But until people see it for themselves I can imagine they won’t expect it to look like it does. Oh well 🙂

Mine was called Windmill in Greek… and it had two MASSIVE windmills inside, sorry – it had Santorini inside.  We couldn’t get to the mainland to book it so sent PILs, with specifics we wanted – a nice simple room with plain walls etc (his brother had the wedding in a room decorated with fake Parthenons etc), and they sent us a brochure picture showing a beautiful open room with crystal chandeliers and white drapings on the wall – saying it was exactly decorated like this but bigger – so we said go ahead.  Brother-In-Law then went to see it and sent us pics of the rooms.  I cried and DH screamed down the phone to his PILs whilst his mother denied there were windmills. 

Anyway, I calmed down, told myself “deal with it and move on” and we stuck with it.  Mother-In-Law still denied up until the reception there were windmills in there even when we went to see it 3 or 4 times before the wedding.  As we sat down at the top table, DH lent over and said to his mother – “You see – two massive windmills and Santorini – how could you miss it?” The champagne came through my nose from laughter!

It looks like a beautiful location, so I don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙂
