If it is amazing venue with a great price and the money goes to a good cause I say just go for it! As long as you dont think your guests will have their windows smashed in and everything stolen who cares what the rest of the street looks like

I would have my wedding there… not problem for me as I actually lived in the “ghetto” parts of town in my city…. I am living in one of them right now, surrounded by low income, prostitutes, drug lords and such… I don’t go out at night without my Fiance though! He takes out the dogs then! Thankfully my building is one of the quietest in the area!

The area shouldn’t affect you at all! I’m used to living in big cities where you have rich people right next to the projects, so I really wouldn’t think twice about this.

I was in that same boat when looking at venues and I didn’t choose them if I didn’t like the surrounding area.. just my personal preference… and i’m glad I did that because I found a gorgeous venue by a great area and my guests still compliment it when i see them.

I’d have my wedding there.  My venue is not in the best spot.  While the area is nice, the venue shares grounds with an apartment complex so it’s not pretty.  There is no outdoor relaxing space (no garden), just parking space.  We’re having the party inside, not out so in the end, it didnt matter.

Also our ceremony venue is in the middle of a neighborhood.  i didn’t really notioce but that is what fi said as we were driging away.  The grounds is really pretty and rustice so who cares.

this is a common problem in our area.  all the prettiest venues are historical buildings which by their nature are in the old, run down areas of town.  I don’t think it matters.  As long as you make sure your guests don’t have to drive around looking for parking and or walk in the area or leave their cars unattended.

I don’t think it matters much what the neighborhood looks like as long as it’s safe!

As long as it’s safe, it should be fine. If it’s not safe, get the heck outta there! My Fiance and I were looking at a place and we slooowly went into the ghetto. It was BAD. People looked like they were doing drugs or ready to jack your car at a stop sign. We booked it out of there ASAP. We didn’t even bother looking at the place.
